Thanks for joining me for another seasonal round up! This time it is Father’s Day cards – with two weeks to go this Sunday, now is the time to get your orders in with the marvellous small businesses that we love.
Whether they be a Dad; a Step-Dad; a like-a-Dad; dog Dad; cat Dad or plant Dad, you’re bound to find one of these cards to fit the bill (and if not, follow the links below to have a look at the other beauties the makers have on offer!).
So here goes – read on for 15 small businesses, designers, makers and illustrators who have us covered to say a big ol’ ‘thanks’!
Wholesome words and charming illustrations by Gloucestershire based designer Anastassia.
Phwoar, take a look at those colours would you?! Husband and wife duo Marko and Jana combine their love of design and inspirations from art, history and fashion to create these beauties from their London based studio.
THIS GAL DESIGNS
‘This Gal Designs’ bloody well if you ask me!!
Lots of dog breeds and other lovely animals feature in Amelia’s illustrations – check out her pet portraits too!
Lush botanical illustrations by Holly (and more pet portraits – I’m spoiling you, I know!).
CATHERINE DO ART
Oh I love a pun, and so does Cat Faulkner, who is one half of the sister dream team that makes up greetings card company, Jelly Armchair!
BLACKCAT AND BUMBLE
Michaela was one of the first businesses I featured on the blog, back in August last year (have a nosey here!), something of a Creative Q&A OG if you will…
JEFF AND THE SQUIRREL
I feel that you can’t go wrong with a business named after someone’s cats, which is exactly what the story is here!
ROCK COVERS PAPER
I am in love with these simple illustrations by graphic designer Amanda – all made using recycled paper and packaged in biodegradable cellophane!
Remember these guys from my Mother’s Day guide? Well they’ve still got it going on, so here they are again!!
It was so so hard to choose just 3 of Dandy Sloth’s cards for this round up, their selection is MEGA!
Elizabeth’s fab shop is an absolute pastel lover’s dream.
Yorkshire based designer Eva, prints all of her cards onto beautifully textured, recycled paper.
Here’s another fab business that you may recognise from the Mother’s Day post back in March!
Simple clean design and a muted palette – Cat at Twin Pines has Father’s Day sussed.
Hopefully you found something appropriate to tickle your fancy out of that lot – Father’s Day is Sunday 20th June, you’re welcome!
Remember to order early to give yourself plenty of time to receive it, and for those wonderful creatives to get it sent out to you!
I hope you have a fab weekend in the beautiful sunshine (pleaaaase let there be beautiful sunshine!), check back in next week to see what’s in store!
