Print Circus Studio offers British made luxury greetings cards, prints and gifts to customers looking for an eclectic range of beautifully crafted, design led products. Humorous animals and birds provide a large body of the work alongside a passion for colour, texture and pattern, which is expressed using mixed media, often including paint, collage, pencil and ink.
Everything is made in small quantities or made to order exclusively in the UK, using only the finest materials and carefully selected manufacturers.
Environmental issues are very important to us, our customers and suppliers. We work with printers who run a carbon neutral operation, and all packaging is re used where at all possible.
The studio has grown to supply many independent galleries and shops throughout the UK and worldwide.
The designs begin as sketches and notes which are then developed and perfected by hand into paper and mixed media illustrations and repeat patterns, using traditional art and design processes. These are then translated into printed products in our signature playful style with a rustic lux edge.
Print Circus is proud to be British designed and British made. Only the finest components and materials are used including G F Smith papers, working closely with carefully selected British manufacturers and craftsmen.
We are phasing out the use of cello bags and sourcing alternative ways to package products.
Artist Fay Shoesmith founded the brand in 2015 following fifteen years experience in Textile and Interior Design and Art & Design education. Having studied and worked in Birmingham and London, it was during maternity leave with her twin boys, Print Circus was created and is now based near Lichfield, Staffordshire.
Fay has worked on diverse projects including show home design, hand painting large scale murals and textile design for the wedding industry. Her passion for colour, quality and product design is the driving force of the brand. Her knowledge and experience within Textile and Interior Design informs brand decisions about colour and pattern placement and how pieces will work within interior settings.
