About Dandelion

Created in 2014, we are a small, family run business and everyone gets involved. From inspiration, design, packaging and hand finishing through to distribution, admin and business development, there is always a job to be done and everyone chips in. Over recent years we have grown a small but fabulous hardworking and loyal team. We all work together in a little studio in rural Derbyshire. 

We started by making greetings cards focusing on words and sentiments, with the occasional splash of humour. We steadily expanded our collection and can now offer a host of gift products including soaps, tea towels, notebooks, coasters and more.

As far as materials are concerned, we can be quite fussy. We only buy the best materials, and we make a conscious effort to ensure that everything is produced in the UK, supporting other small UK businesses. For our greetings cards we only buy paper and envelopes which are either recycled or made from FSC paper / sustainable paper. Over the past few years we have transitioned a number of our products to naked packaging, reducing hugely the amount of plastic we use. 

In 2016, 2019, 2020, 2021 and again in 2022 we won a Henries Award for our greeting card designs (as well as also reaching the finals in 2014, 2015 and 2017). To say we are delighted with our FIVE awards is an understatement! They have pride of place in the office and are frequently stroked as we walk past them.
