10 UK Based Indie Makers to Support This Valentine’s Day

Back in December I shared a post with 12 awesome indie makers to support. It went down really well and I thought it would be fun to #ShareTheLove and put together a similar post. Today’s post is focused on handmade made cards for Valentine’s Day.

I hope you enjoy the list and that it gives you a little inspiration to shop local or handmade when you can. Just so you know, all the photos within this post have been taken from the Etsy shop of each maker. The photos all link back to their respective Etsy shop.

– Gin Bunny Prints – I discovered Katie’s work today and I just love the modern and relatable messages they offer. This is one of my favourites from her Valentine’s Collection, there are so many other cute and funny ones too.

– Do You Punctuate – If you’re looking for something a little more cheeky then Bec has got you sorted. I really like the Happy Valentines Blah Blah Gin and You’re the only Weirdo Perfect for Me.

– Elsie & Nell – Laura is based in Sheffield and her shop is full of beautiful designs with fun quotes. As much as I love her You Make Me Happier Than Cheesy Chips card I think I’d have to go for her You’re My Lobster card, I love a good Friends memory.

– Vera La Lune – Rebecca’s illustrations are just so sweet. I love that she’s got this Friends themed card but this Olive You card would be ideal for P.
