Welcome to the third of my Supporting Small Businesses posts. Lockdown might be easing slightly (very slightly here in Wales), but these businesses still need our custom.
Papio Press is a small UK business creating illustrated art prints and accessories. The business is run by Harry and Zanna Goldhawk from their home in Cornwall. Their work is inspired by nature and they take care to be as environmentally-friendly as possible, including developing an eco-friendly packaging range for their online orders.
I’ve been eyeing-up items on their website for a while now, but it was only while I was shopping on Etsy just before Easter that I finally ordered.
I decided to get the Pack of 15 Papio Press Postcards with Floral Creature Illustrations to send out to friends and penpals. The postcards are A6 in size and are printed on 300gsm recycled card. The pack includes 15 unique illustrations of both real and mystical creatures. I’ve already sent a couple of the postcards out, which is why you can’t see the whole pack here.
Once you’ve seen one illustration by Papio Press, their other work becomes instantly recognisable. The illustrations are wonderful and unique.
Not only do they sell postcards, but they also sell other stationery such as greeting cards and calendars, as well as pins (which I love!), patches, jewellery, prints and more.
Papio Press currently mail orders out on Mondays and Thursdays with UK orders sent out 1st class (1-2 days to arrive) and international orders sent out via Royal Mail Standard International post (5-10 working days). It certainly didn’t take long for my order to arrive.
I’m sure I’ll be buying from Papio Press again.
Please note: I bought these postcards with my own money and I am in no way affiliated with Papio Press.
