Spots and Stripes is a luxury stationery brand selling beautifully hand illustrated notes and cards.

The company was formed by Louise Marshall and Suzy Magni in 2016. They both come from creative backgrounds and have worked in production, branding and design for many well known luxury brands. They came together though a love of design and a shared passion to build a brand that aims to create beautifully considered products that will stand the test of time.    


After only 6 months of working together in their studio in Battersea, they won the 2017 London Stationery Show’s ‘Launchpad’ competition which took place in April 2017 at the Business Design Centre in Islington and used the platform to launch Spots and Stripes. They were then nominated for 'Exciting use of Colour' at Top Draw September 2017.

 The ‘written words matter’ concept behind our designs is a simple one – a text or email will quickly be lost and forgotten, but a hand written note can be kept and treasured forever. We hope our products will inspire people to write more often and in so doing, keep the love of paper and writing alive.


Our creative approach is to be ‘perfectly imperfect’ in everything we do. We want all our products to have 'old school' values and charm but also reflect a modern, yet playful style. We love our designs to be a bit wibbly-wobbly with a handmade feel. We believe they have more character this way, and reflect our constant state of mind - that life can’t be perfect but perfectly imperfect will do.


Everything we create starts with brush and ink, or pencil and paper. All of our designs or patterns are hand drawn and we love to pair them up with brush lettering or modern, informal fonts to create simple, yet elegant card designs to be enjoyed and appreciated by all.
