Looking for Something Sweet for Someone Special?

Give Them Some Ink Nice.

Hello! We make illustrated greetings cards, art prints & gift 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 per 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 never missed a single one of my birthdays.”
Now, being British, and men, we ordinarily try & suppress any hint of emotion.  Especially in public.  Because it's rightly 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 them a card.   One they’ll want to hang on to.  A handwritten message they can physically hold.

One they can slip in a drawer, or in a frame on the shelf. One that ten years from now they’ll rediscover and get that warm, happy glow all over again.

Because cards are the little details that keep friendships alive, as they have done for centuries.

For that reason, our cards and gifts are designed to stand the test of time.
With solid heritage colours and a reassuring weight, they feel luxurious and durable.
Simple and beautiful, but paying attention to the smallest details.
Some Ink Nice is built on the idea of giving small, meaningful gestures. 
Gestures really do count.
Come have a look around and see what takes your fancy.
And thanks for visiting.
