Welcome to Sleepy Bee Studio, founded by husband & wife team Gavin & Charlie in May 2019 as a creative design studio based in Cambridge & specialising in premium stationery & gifts. Charlie’s background is in buying, illustration & product design, and Gav is a graphic designer & artworker.

Packaging is a really important factor in everything produced, and so everything is presented in either recyclable or reusable materials whilst keeping the look of the product beautiful, premium & something you almost don’t want to unwrap. 

All printed products are produced in the UK using FSC® certified stock & the illustrated tissue paper is produced by an Eco-Alliance company that plants a tree for each order placed.

Positive customer experience is an essential aspect to us and is directly linked to the design of our packaging. We love creating products that gives you or the person receiving them a memorable gift experience; we use handmade elements and design the products so they are as beautiful to open as they are to use.

Our brand values are important to us and we try and incorporate the below values into everything we do.

Art Deco gift box, hand-illustrated - greeting cards, tissue paper, stickers & wax seals. Art Deco Luxury Stationery Gift Box.
This A6 watercolour Kintsugi greeting card is printed at our studio & features an inky blue watercolour circle with hand-finished gold lines added.
We’ve now been in the new garden studio for a few months now and so I thought it’d be a good time to write a blog on the details, from who we used, to how long it took and how we decided on the interior of it.
