Welcome to Moobaacluck, home of playful paper products and wonderful wooden gifts inspired by a sense of fun, freedom and occasion designed and made for you by Gabriella Buckingham.
I've always worked as an illustrator since leaving art college and started Moobaacluck in 2008 out of a need to work from a remote area in Norfolk with two toddlers at my feet. I began by making cards and gifts for their little friends and now I make them for you. The range has changed enormously since 2008, the old favourites are still there but now not everything I make is for children. Recently I have started designing prints specifically for different areas of your home, like the monochrome cutlery prints for kitchens or dining rooms.
Are you looking for something that will remind you or someone you love of a key moment in their lives? I paint beautiful wooden decorations that can be personalised with any words you like, wherever you like. I look for the magic in everyday life remembering the things I loved as a child, the books, the adventures and friendship. Our stationery is all about feeling, the joy in a simple emotion - whether that's an illustrative cute birthday card or a hand lettered greeting card that says "Hugs" only - it's probably the next best thing when you can't be with someone. Send love. I also provide a service that means you can have your own words rendered by hand and then printed on a greeting card which is perfect when you want a truly individual message for a wedding or anniversary for example.
Everything we make at Moobaacluck is designed, painted, printed and packed by myself so you can be sure of 100 percent attention when you place an order. My husband also works in the business on an as and when basis. I employ a Norfolk craftsman to hand cut some of the wooden pieces I design, and a laser cutter in Scotland to make the rest of what I need. All our personalised cards and prints are printed to order individually in our home based studio using archive quality inks on FSC certified paper stock. All the wonderful wooden shapes come to life in my octagonal summer house at the bottom of our wild garden with butterflies, birds and bees for company. Anything that isn't made by us personally is manufactured in Britain, the badges, notebooks and wrapping paper which are both printed using only vegetable inks.
As most things I make can be personalised if there's something you see that you want tweaked or wonder if you can have with certain words on just ask. If you are looking for a paper to wrap your gifts in we have several designs and can offer a high quality gift wrap service or you can simply buy wrapping paper from us to use whenever you like.
