About Us

Your friends are precious.  Keep them close.  Give them Some Ink Nice.
Hello! We make illustrated greetings cards, prints & stationery. Our aim is to create small, meaningful gifts that last a lifetime.
I've been drawing & making birthday cards for as long as I can remember.
I began Some Ink Nice, though, inspired by something in the speech my best man gave at our wedding.

As is the tradition, he was doing his best to humiliate me in front of all our closest family & friends.
Then he said:
“I was moving house recently and found a box of old cards. Looking through them, I realised that Mike has not once missed one of my birthdays.”
Now, being British, and men, we ordinarily try & suppress any hint of emotion.  Especially in public.  Because it's frowned upon.  But this was the one point his composure cracked a little. And the sentiment struck a chord.
(I don't bring this up to prove how great I am. It's not like I gave him a kidney or anything).
Sending cards is a simple, everyday gesture.  But over time, these gestures count.
Text messages, Whatsapp, Facebook, bellowing loudly out the window.  All handy ways to keep in touch.
But what are the chances you'll look through those messages in 10 years' time?
Give a card. One that will last. It can help keep important relationships alive when you can't be there in person.

Our cards and prints are designed to be clean, crisp and beautiful.
Reassuringly thick & heavy, they feel luxurious and durable, so they'll last safely in your friend's drawer for a decade, waiting to be found again.
Some Ink Nice is built on the idea of giving small, meaningful gestures. 
Gestures really do count.
Go have a look around and see what takes your fancy.
Thanks for visiting.
