Hadley - Chequer Vase card
Our cards are made from FSC and recycled cards. Our packaging is plastic free and compostable.
Hadley is built around a love of family, community, creativity and design. These four things shape everything about the business: from the card designs, to who manufactures them and which shops are chosen to stock them.
Illustrations with integrity...
Every Hadley design starts life as an original artwork: a collage, drawing or print.
I aim to use computers as little as possible; a line drawn by a human hand, with all it's wonkiness and charm, communicates so much more than a clean computer generated one.
Each card is printed on high quality paper using inks that give really vibrant tones and a stunning matte finish.
Beautiful cards born of a beautiful situation...
I started making cards after I had my baby. So many people helped me: people who were excited for me and wonderful, strong people who I could turn to for support.
I was overwhelmed with the love and generosity I was shown and I ended up sending a lot of cards!
Sending a card is the most lovely token of affection I have found. I send cards all the time now: to say Thank You, Happy Birthday or just to let people know I'm thinking of them.
From this habit my card shop has grown and it makes me very happy to know that my designs are helping people to stay in touch and show love and gratitude all over the world.
