Who Are We...

A little about us

Who Are We?

‘Curious Pencil’ is a creative team, and an award winning greeting card specialist. We think differently and shake the dust off the traditional! As a result we create unique and heart-warming designs that are memorable. We allow the ‘pencil’ to roam the page and be ‘curious’ in all that it does.

What Makes Us Different?

Every design is pencil-drawn or digitally illustrated in-house. We print ethically in the UK, with impressive quality. However, what makes us different is our creativity. We treat each design as a story. Here at Curious Pencil, the creative writing is not left redundant, but works hand-in-hand with the design, to truly WOW your receivers.

How Did We Come About?

So, we started with a packed portfolio of our greeting cards, selling in retailers across the UK, this sparked an interest in many. As a result, we were often requested to create bespoke cards for organisations and individuals. Then after realising there was no-one offering this service, with excellence at such a personal level, we decided to fulfill this need.

What Is Our Aim?

We take delight in watching the reactions of our customers when they see what has been created for them, we have even seen tears of joy. Therefore, our aim is to connect people in an otherwise disconnected world, putting the smiles back on people’s faces.

Pat Robinson, Birmingham

My experience with Curious Pencil was awesome. They took my photos and personal poems i wrote myself and turned them into 2 of the most beautiful cards. They kept in constant contact throughout the designing and development process. Sending examples for me to review before going to print. Their service was fabulous and I highly recommend them for that extra special card for that extra special person. Worth every penny. Money well spent. Thank you very much ladies. 💕

I gave this anniversary card to my husband, and he broke down in tears as we had had a tough year, but the words and image really reflected our hardship and that if we stick together we can work through it. Thank you so much for blessing us with your gifts and talents. You deserve all the success.
