Creators of perfectly imperfect hand-illustrated greeting cards and notes designed with love and proudly printed in the UK.
The company was set up in 2016 by two friends, Suzy Magni and Louise Marshall. We work out of our Battersea studio in London and share a desire to build a brand that creates beautifully considered products that stand the test of time and ones we hope will add value to peoples’ lives.
We chose the name Spots and Stripes not only because they are the basic building blocks of design, but also because they never go out of fashion and feel like a reliable friend when used in design. Who doesn’t like a spot or a stripe?
We are proud of the craftsmanship in our work, that’s why everything we create is hand drawn. All our designs follow our brand promise to be ‘Perfectly Imperfect’, we like things to be a bit wibbly-wobbly, to allow room for happy accidents and to celebrate the beauty in natural lines and imperfections. We want all our products to have ‘old school’ values and charm but also reflect a modern, yet playful style.
Having only launched in April 2017 we are already making waves!
After only 6 months of working together we won the 2017 London Stationery Show’s ‘Launchpad’ competition which took place in April 2017 at the Business Design Centre in Islington. We were also nominated for The Paper Awards 'Exciting use of Colour' category at the Top Drawer Home and Gift Trade Show in September 2017.
