Paper Perfection from Papyrus

Established in 1950, US Greetings Card company, Papyrus, specialises in beautiful, high-end greetings cards and stationery with an emphasis on creative hand-finishes and treatments, and is a brand that strives to celebrate the the art of making personal connections through ‘joyful’ and thoughtful communication.

The iconic Hummingbird that features in their brand identity – and ethos, if you take a moment to read the reverse of each and every carefully prepared card they produce – is instantly recognisable, and the imaginative embellishments, from candy-floss-emulating ‘fluff’ to beading, glittering gems and ribbon, makes each into as much a gift as a greetings card.


The Papyrus message on the back of every card and designs by Bright artist Fiona Woodcock. You can see more of Fiona’s designs here, and for her children’s illustration click here.

We are delighted to share with you five new designs from Papyrus featuring our talented artists’ work that are sure to bring a smile to your face (if not the sunshine to a rather dull week of ‘summer’, the case of Fiona Woodcock’s super-cool shades-sporting character!).


More by Fiona Woodcock who will be launching her new picture book, Hiding Heidi [published by Simon and Schuster] at The Bright Emporium in July.

You can follow Fiona on twitter @FionaWoodcock and Instagram fionawoodcock. For any enquries about working with Fiona, please contact Hannah Curtis for Art Licensing and Greetings cards, or Alli Brydon for publishing.
