Design Christmas Wishlist #4
Roxwell Press is a British stationery company with spirit and soul. Started just one short year ago it’s had a busy year expanding the range which includes cards, prints and a bespoke wedding stationery service! With a bright and bushy Tropical range already out and a new cosy Home range planned for the start of 2016 there’s lots more to see but its the Christmas cards and tags that speak of nature and calmness which feature at #4 on our Christmas Design wishlist.
We started working with Michelle from Roxwell Press a few months ago and love the ethos behind it. As Michelle explains ‘Sending a card is an expression of someone’s love, friendship and connection to other human beings. The hand written correspondence is still an important part of our lives, a meaningful gesture and art form that I would like to help preserve through my stationery range’. This sentiment rings true – an unexpected card through the post or a postcard from someone’s adventurous travels are special and remind us of our friends and family we don’t see as often as we’d like.
Furthermore the detailed beautiful designs on the cards themselves can act as decorations too. There was a lovely feature by Patchwork Harmony recently which explored the art of displaying some of our great UK designers Christmas cards as part of our Christmas decorations which included Roxwell Press designs.
Whilst the news is busy telling us we only connect online these days the #Justacard campaign aims to highlight how just small purchases can help to keep our independent creatives at work brightening up our homegrown design scene here in the UK and it’s a valid point. So go on- sit down, slow down, pick up that pen and write to your friends and family. Send them a piece of beautifully crafted card art personalised by your thoughts, news and well-wishes and spread the warm hygge feeling this season!
Roxwell Press designs are printed in England on environmentally friendly paper, made using wind power. You can buy the Christmas cards individually to make up your own collection or buy designs in boxes of 5. These come packaged with envelopes in beautiful clear perspex boxes.
