Hayley Jade Design Studio officially started in late 2018 when I started designing prints for myself, and was missing designing wedding stationery (we got married in the May of that year!). Having been drawing since my early teens, and years of experience of working as a graphic designer (of which I still do full-time!), I wanted to combine both my illustrative and design skills to create minimal but beautiful paper goods. Although I started very small with some greetings cards, I finally released a full range of prints and cards in May of 2019, after purchasing a printer – the majority of our products are printed to order, ensuring that I can check that every print and card is perfect before sending to you lovely lot! Printing in house also means I can offer a lot more variety in terms of personalised products as well as being able to add new designs as and when I come up with them.

And of course, I can’t help my love of Disney creeping into my designs. I honestly didn’t expect my castle prints to be as popular as they have, it started just a little project for me to do in the evenings!

It’s been a slow and steady start to this little business, but I’m hoping 2021 is the year that I get to expand on my product range and hopefully make it my full time job!
