We deliver smiles
From hand painting greeting cards at her kitchen table to building a fully functioning print studio next to her home in rural Sussex, designer and illustrator Nessie Maclay turned humble beginnings into a work of art.
It all began in 2002 when Nessie’s dad requested some hand-painted greeting cards for Christmas. Nessie accepted, and as soon as she put paintbrush to paper, she was hooked. Her dad’s initial order of 400 quickly grew—thanks to friends and family—and Nessie sold almost 10,000 cards by the end of the holiday season.
And that’s when 'This Is Nessie' was born.
As popularity for Nessie’s hand-finished cards grew, the venture naturally progressed to personalised stationery and then to Nessie’s famous personalized welly boot prints.
Now, customers can choose from a wide range of personalized prints, custom printed homeware products and quirky framed illustrations.
“It’s such an incredible privilege for me to be able to share in the many special moments in people’s lives. From weddings to new beginnings, anniversaries to birthdays and everything else in between. I feel so lucky to be able to bring my passion for beautiful illustration and design into your big moments.
Backed up by the amazing team here in our studio, we will always go the extra mile to deliver those all-important smiles.
We’re so grateful for all the support and feedback – and so chuffed to create with and for you!
Love Nessie x”
Please note that if you have chosen STANDARD or FREE delivery we cannot guarantee that our delivery time estimates will be accurate. While we will despatch on or before the advertised despatch date, we cannot predict or control this, nor can we be held responsible for it. You do use this service at your own risk.
If you wish to guarantee the arrival of your item in time for a SPECIFIC DATE or event, within the UK, we advise you upgrade your delivery to a guaranteed service, as we cannot be held responsible for items that are delayed by Royal Mail after we have despatched them on time. This can be done by selecting the SATURDAY DELIVERY option and will put your item out from our studios on a next-day guaranteed, pre-1pm signed-for service with Royal Mail that is nearly 100% reliable and features a tracking number so that you know where in the postal network your parcel is.
Please note that all orders are sent by Royal Mail tracked with the exception of some larger items which will come via DPD. While we endeavour to give accurate estimates and Royal Mail are generally brilliant, their service is not faultless and some items may take longer than estimated so all delivery dates should be treated as a guide only.
We aim to get orders despatched on the same day they are received, although at peak times of year this can slip by 48-72 hours.
