Made in Britain

If you love a real, traditional Victorian-style Christmas you’ll adore Sally’s beautiful work. The entire range is printed here in Britain so it comes with a nice, low transport impact as well as helping to sustain home-grown print providers. And it’s all sustainable. Sally’s products are printed on top quality boards, cards and papers, accredited by the Forest Stewardship Council, a respected non-profit international organisation. They’re 100% committed to promoting responsible forest management and supporting all the good stuff it brings in terms of social and environmental benefits.

The Sally Swannell Story

What about Sally herself? She originally trained as a natural history illustrator but soon found she had a distinct talent for creating beautiful designs for all sorts of purposes. She has been producing her designs for more than a decade and they're extremely popular. Using vivid emulsion paints, her lovey images are inspired by the English countryside, the famously beautiful scenery of New England, USA, and well-loved northern European subjects.

But things really took off three years ago, when Sally and her dad Alan set up in business selling a particularly popular range of greetings cards, quality prints, tablemats, paintings and more at a high profile trade show. These days the Wiltshire-based Swannells sell their delightful wares to more than 200 independent shops, museums and galleries right across Britain.

Sally Swannell Eco Stationery

So what's in Sally's Christmas collection? A feast of deliciously colourful greetings cards, gift wrap and tags featuring traditional scenes, in traditional colours, for a taste of Christmas past brought bang up to date.

Choose from cards featuring Santa Claus and pretty Christmas Eve scenes. Gift tags shaped like Christmas trees and Father Christmas. And gorgeous gift wrap in a variety of designs from pretty trees, stockings and gifts to mini-Santas. You can mix and match easily because they go together wonderfully well. Or stick to Sally's extremely popular Father Christmas and Christmas Eve designs for wrapping paper, cards and gift tags that all match for a classic Christmassy look.

You can expect the very best in eco stationery. The gift wrap is printed on top quality 100gsm FSC accredited paper with a stylish matt finish. The tags are printed on sturdy 280gsm FSC accredited board, die cut with a fold over tab, with 'To' and 'From' printed on the back for your convenience. And the Christmas cards are a delight, in handy packs of eight, printed with love and care on seriously good quality 280gsm FSC accredited board, with a subtle, classy texture, some with a cool, sparkly finish, all supplied with brown recycled paper envelopes and carefully wrapped in cellophane. What a treat… and pretty enough to frame for posterity!
