“Scribble & Daub’s hand-drawn cards are perfect for every occasion” – VOGUE
Winston Churchill once said: “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” Scribble & Daub believes that even the smallest token, carefully chosen, has a great power. As old-fashioned stationery and proper post become new luxuries, Scribble & Daub’s letterpress printed and individually hand-painted cards are designed to enhance any present, or to be tiny gifts in themselves, meticulously hand-crafted objects of enduring pleasure to both giver and receiver, afterall, you are what you give.
Scribble & Daub was founded by Caroline Kent, previously a curator of contemporary art more used to organising exhibitions with Turner Prize-winning artists than scribbling herself. After moving from Edinburgh to a cottage in the country via a year travelling in the Americas, she turned the hand-drawn cards sent to friends and family into a small business after the arrival of her first child. Testament to the eternal power of handwritten correspondence, Caroline penned what she hoped was a charming letter to Liberty with some of her hand-drawn cards and was delightedly astonished when they called to place an order, becoming Scribble & Daub’s second ever stockist! Only a short time later, and Scribble & Daub was featured in the pages of Vogue and The World of Interiors and stocked on the shelves of some of the UK’s leading stores and independent shops throughout the world.
Elegantly imperfect original pen and ink drawings are printed with an antique Heidelberg press at one of the few remaining traditional English print workshops onto thick, creamy handmade Italian paper. Each card is then individually hand-coloured with Andy Warhol’s favourite brightly coloured inks so that every one is unique. All Scribble & Daub products are designed, finished and packed by hand in our studio in the East Sussex countryside.
Scribble & Daub undertakes a small number of bespoke illustration commissions for both organisations and private individuals each year. Previous clients include A Little Bird, From My Dining Table by Skye McAlpine and Votary.
