I work in my York based studio creating luxury greetings card & stationery ranges, surface patterns and commissioned work. I gained a first-class degree in Graphic Art: Illustration from Liverpool John Moores University, and shortly after this I was offered a placement at Hallmark Cards which resulted in a freelancing contract. I have since worked with various other greetings card and craft companies including U.K Greetings and Trimcraft.
I began my career as a head in-house designer in the craft sector, where I designed greetings cards and surface pattern for paper pad collections. I saw my work being sold weekly on U.K shopping channels such as QVC, Ideal World and Create & Craft, and my paper craft designs can often be found in shops such as The Range and Wilkinsons.
I decided to take the leap and create my own business after leaving my first design role. Since then I've been lucky enough to see my products sold in stores such as Anthropologie and Fenwicks, as well as gaining some truly wonderful independent stockists.
My biggest achievement was being named winner of the 2016 Make it in Design Printsource New York competition. The prize was to exhibit my designs in one of the top surface pattern trade shows in New York which was an experience I will be forever grateful for.
About the shop
The primary focus is to create design-led greetings cards and stationery that you are excited to give and delighted to receive. The aim is to create that perfect finishing touch to a gift or just a special note to make your loved one smile.
From initial ideas to final products, each process is done with the most obsessive eye for detail, ensuring every product reaches the stockist at its highest standard of quality. The ideas start with a concept board which helps each collection develop it’s own unique theme and style. After colours are matched carefully, designs are sent to print. Our paper is intentionally selected to give you an element of luxury in your hands, for extra tactile detail. Finishing touches may be added such as beautiful foiling and flittering, and any crystals are heat bonded with great care by hand in the studio. Products are carefully packaged in house to complete the excellent company standards.
Stephanie Davies is committed to producing unique and high-quality products that aim to be beautiful additions to a large range of retailers shelves. We are intentional in our efforts to provide the highest level of service for our retailers.

We only design towards the most up and coming trends, we only use the most luxurious eco-friendly stocks, and we only use Crystals from Swarovski®, of course, but what really makes our products unique is Stephanie’s passion for illustration. She strives to deliver products that make an impact, and is driven towards a value for excellence in every detail. Each design is lovingly hand illustrated and feature Stephanie’s own unique style of design and hand drawn typography.
Great pride is taken in the fact we try and source the most eco-friendly materials when producing Stephanie Davies products. On the back of every greetings card you will find a logo which means that each card printed carrying this logo can be traced back to source. It is the gold standard of responsible forest management, and among other environmental pledges means that the mills supplying our paper will plant more trees each year than are felled. Also, every product is digitally printed. This means that fewer chemicals are used in the process compared with other methods of printing. There is also little paper waste with this method and is completely recyclable. Our packaging is also carefully sourced, with our eco-kraft envelopes being 100% recycled and our cello wrapping biodegradable.
