Papersheep was started by Penny Lindop over 25 years ago after she wanted to use sheep’s wool on her doodles and sketches of… sheep. The business grew as she added more of her quirky animal, bird, flower and pet designs based on her original watercolour and ink drawings and now all of our cards, prints and stationery are hand finished with sheep’s wool on luxury, sustainable card here in Norfolk, UK. The hand finishing gives our designs a 3-d effect and never fails to bring a smile to your face. The business is now owned by Sarah Heycock, who moved it into a dedicated studio in 2019 and continues to design new cards in a similar style. We are passionate about quality and ensure that all of our unique, keepsake products are sustainable.
Proud to be British, all of our cards are printed in the UK and hand finished in Norfolk and the prints and other gifts are completely produced in Norfolk. We are a small team based at Snetterton and use outworkers within a very close range to hand finish our products. Whilst we don’t do commissions of individual animals, some of the hand finished prints can be personalised and a personalised card facility was introduced in 2022.
