julieannis01.jpgHollyhock Lane is a small creative design studio run by artist and founder Julie Annis. I specialise in hand drawn and highly illustrated wedding stationery. My designs include a growing collection of ready to print wedding invitation templates and other matching stationery (all fully customisable), as well as a selection of fun greetings cards and other quirky celebratory items that can be bought in Hollyhock Lane’s online shop.

I also offer a limited bespoke design service for those looking for their own completely unique and personalised stationery, whatever the occasion. 

All the designs are hand drawn and illustrated in my home studio in Lewes, East Sussex on the English South coast.

My stationery is professionally printed by environmentally responsible printers on high quality eco friendly FSC certified paper.


I started Hollyhock Lane in 2012 and had been working as a graphic designer for 10 years before that. To be honest though, painting and drawing were my natural skills and first love, having studied fine art for my degree at art college in Edinburgh.

My vision for Hollyhock Lane is to create especially beautiful wedding stationery and paper goods. Designs that are hand painted and hand drawn, and that can be framed as mini works of art to treasure and keep as mementos of your big day. Add to that a personal service that can adapt and customise any one of my designs to your preference.

I want to help take the stress out of organising your wedding stationery and at the same time provide you with a ‘one of a kind’ beautiful invitation suite that really reflects your style as a couple.


In 2015 Faye Spiller joined Hollyhock Lane to help Julie with admin tasks and social media as a much needed assistant. More recently, Faye has been covering client emails and project management whilst Julie is on maternity leave since having baby Frankie. So keep an eye out for your email from Faye when you first place your order!
