Friday’s Favourites – Best of 2017

As 2017 draws to a close, we wanted to celebrate our incredible customers and their beautiful printed creations.

Enjoy, and have a very Merry Christmas and happy New Year!


Business Cards by Pink Rosebud

Christmas Cards by Kelly Crocker

This was tough just to choose one card designer, but what we love about Kelly (apart from the fact she’s the owner of the cutest dog known to mankind or that she’s a proud Hufflepuff) is that her designs are Christmassy without being obviously festive. They’re a brilliant mix of beautiful creativity with a hint of yuletide cheer. The paired back look complements the lighter colour palette perfectly.

Wrapping Paper by Pencil Pusher

Not just great for Christmas, Natalie’s wrapping paper here can be used all year around, and feels super special thanks to its crystal inspired design. Illustrator and stationery designer Natalie also creates homeware, and loves dogs, cakes and drawings.

Carla’s watercolour galaxy invites are so dreamy. Finished with her trademark calligraphy, Edinburgh based Carla has made an invitation into a real work of art. If only the sky looked as beautiful as this every night!

Leaflets/ Flyers by Lucy Law Paper

With hand lettering and bright floral designs on a contrasting black background, Lucy’s flyers were always going to stand out. However, by printing on a textured paper stock, she has also guaranteed a luxe look and feel. Lucy creates illustrated stationery, chalkboards and paper crafts for all the celebrations you can think of.

Postcards by I drawed it

Considering we post customer creations on a fryday (get it!?!) we had to include drawing fan Sian Landau who made these not poached but perfectly formed eggy postcards. Printed on silk coated A6 paper, the plain and simple stock lets the illustration do all the talking.

Love the stickers for What Katy Did - is it possible to have multiple sticker designs printed on the same sheet?
