About Us



Five Dollar Shake has been creating beautiful greeting cards as far back as 1998.  Our first Five Dollar Shake wedding took place just a year later and we have been  providing adorable couples with our exquisite stationery ever since. 

It may have been a different century but our philosophy back then is the same as  it is today. All we have ever wanted to do is create refreshingly different and  distinctive designs. Each invitation is uniquely printed and handmade here in the UK.  Each Swarovski crystal, bow, sequin ~ in fact all our wonderful components that go to make up each design are carefully sourced from around the world. Not forgetting  that all of our stationery is made from card originating from sustainable and  renewable forests.


Every year, the greeting card industry holds its very own ‘Oscars’ ceremony,  celebrating the best of British design. Named after Sir Henry Cole (who introduced  the first commercially produced Christmas card over 160 years ago), Five Dollar Shake are proud winners of 23 Henries Awards ~ more than any other greeting card publisher. This includes receiving the prestigious Honorary Achievement award in 2013.

Your wedding stationery very possibly may be the most important item you ever send out! That’s why we have a specialised ‘bespoke’ team to take you personally through every step of the process. They are fully trained in the most up to date graphic software and have a wealth of wedding stationery layout experience.

We may well supply some of the world’s most famous stores but in truth every order, each card, invitation, RSVP, place card is still made as it was all those years ago ~ and, just like its recipient, is truly unique!

Don’t forget ~ all our stationery is made in house, ensuring that each and every item is finished to perfection.
