We initially closed the studio in March when the lock down began. I'm fortunate to live right next door to the studio so I will be in here working throughout but it didn't feel right to be posting orders so we paused the sites.
Then I started getting messages from customers. In one email I received a message from a customer asking if we could write a message and send it to her sister directly for her. That was when I realised there was a small thing we could still do, help to keep people connected. I spoke with our Post Master at the Post Office and with our Postman and they both said we should keep sending cards so we have reopened the shops.
I had been drawing these new bright colourful designs to spread a bit of positivity and so I quickly worked with our printer to produce a new set of cards. As a result we are also now able to print you own message inside the card and send directly to your friend or loved one. This should be available on the page, if you need help then just let me know.
We are only heading to the post office three times a week to limit our exposure. That means orders are usually arriving in 3-4 days rather than our usual one or two. Very occasionally they are taking an extra day or two, the postal services are doing an amazing job under the circumstances but they are hitting staff shortages at points so please bear with them if that happens with your order.
We also made little stickers and posters to thank our Post / courier teams who are walking the streets and delivering everything so we can all stay safe. There is a link to a PDF to download here.
