Free greetings card with every order

free greetings card with each order

Sending gifts can be tricky at the moment so I have a special offer which I hope will help – a free greetings card with every order.

I’ve created four designs – Birthday, Easter, Just for You and Rainbows – and you can select one per order at no extra cost. I will print a message inside your card, gift wrap your order as usual and send it direct to someone.

Each card is A6 size and made from smooth white card. If you don’t want to ship your order to someone else, you can have a card anyway – just put ‘no text needed’.

I hope this helps and please let me know if there’s anything else I can offer to help everyone during this difficult time.

Coronavirus update

gift tag coronavirus update

I’m sure everyone is fed up with hearing about covid-19, but here’s a little coronavirus update in terms of how its affecting things at The Leaf Press.

The Leaf Press is very much open for business. In fact with most places being closed I’m in my studio more if anything! Gifts and wedding stationery are being sent out as usual – with most gifts dispatched the same or next working day. At the moment deliveries within the UK are unaffected and, if anything, quicker than usual.

Every item you purchase from The Leaf Press Gifts is gift-wrapped as standard, in tissue paper and ribbon/twine. So if you would like something sent to someone else, it’s ready to be given as a gift. In addition you can add to your order a gift note. I will print this on a little gift card and add it in with the package – an example is shown below. I’ll add this as an option to all products.

Please ask if you have any questions and keep an eye out for some freebies which I’ll be releasing over the next few weeks.

New teacher gifts for 2019

new teacher gifts for 2019

I’m excited to introduce two new teacher gifts for 2019 – a new personalised teacher notebook design and a 2019-20 teaching themed desk calendar.

The new teacher notebook features the quote “you are making a difference every day”. Underneath there is ‘thank you’ and a name and this part of the text can be fully personalised. There are two colour schemes – coral and blue. As with all personalised notebooks by The Leaf Press, the notebook is hand-sewn using coloured thread and is pocket size, measuring 10.2 x 15 cm.

The 2019-20 teacher calendar features a quote for each month of the academic year, with a patterned background in neutral blue, peach and grey tones. The quotes are a mix of humorous and inspirational quotations – to keep the teacher laughing and motivated through the year! The calendar measures 10.5 x 10.5 cm and so is the perfect size for a desk or shelf. The calendar comes with a personalised sleeve.

Personalised greetings cards

personalised greetings cards

New to The Leaf Press this year are personalised greetings cards.  At the moment these are for sale in my Etsy shop but they’ll soon be added to the website too.

There will be 50 greetings card designs in total and the gallery below shows the first 25.  There are designs for children, for hobbies/activities and patterns for any age/gender.

Each card is made to order, so that any text can be changed.  Most of these pictures show birthday cards, but for all the designs without an age the wording can be modified to suit any occasion.

More designs will follow soon, so please let me know if you have an idea for a design or theme.

Personalised greetings cards can be viewed in this section of The Leaf Press Etsy Shop.

New notebook designs for children

December was a very time for notebook orders and a huge thanks to everyone that chose The Leaf Press for their Christmas gifts.  There was, however, time for a spot of designing and I’m delighted to introduce these three new notebook designs for children.

For space or astronomy loving boys and girls there’s Space Rockets.  This design has hand-drawn planets, rockets and stars on a grey background.

Dinosaurs features a variety of hand-drawn dinosaur species on a background of dinosaur foot prints.  Please don’t ask me to name which dinosaur species there are here!

Sports Balls is aimed at both adult and children sports fans.  This pattern based design has footballs as well as rugby, tennis, cricket, snooker and golf balls.  It’s already been popular as a gift for those who love their sport – especially difficult to buy for men!

Small Business Sunday winner

small business sunday winner

It’s been a busy and exciting week at The Leaf Press as I’ve been selected as a Small Business Sunday winner.  Small Business Sunday (SBS) is a weekly competition on Twitter, where Theo Paphitis asks businesses to tweet him with details of their business.  He picks 6 winners who join SBS and this week I was one of them!

Theo Paphitis used to be one of the Dragons on Dragons’ Den and is the owner of several British businesses, such as Ryman’s, Boux Avenue and Robert Dyas.  It will be such a privilege to be the recipient of Theo’s business advice and network with other businesses.

Here is the tweet I entered with, which had a picture of 36 notebook designs available to purchase at The Leaf Press Gifts.  To date this tweet has been seen by nearly 12,000 people as a result of winning!

I’ve already taken part in my first ‘SBS Winners Hour’ and in February I’ll be going to Birmingham to be presented with my certificate by Theo and meet other members.  Can’t wait!

New personalised knitting notebook

personalised knitting notebook

This new personalised knitting notebook is now available to purchase in The Leaf Press Gifts shop. It would make a lovely gift for someone who loves to knit, to record notes about knitting patterns or ideas for new knits!  The notebooks used for these photos are for four little girls who are receiving knitting bags for Christmas to start them on their knitting career.  But the notebook is equally suitable for an established knitter – perhaps your gran or nan.

The design features balls of wool and knitting needles in a repeat pattern.  There is a choice of blue, red, green or yellow colour schemes.  The front cover has wording of choice and there is the option to include a message on the first page.
