JUDY LUMLEY

"IT'S ALL DONE IN THE UK AND IT'S ALL PACKED IN THE UK"

“I wanted to have a business that involved my art and that I could keep making because fundamentally I like making things, and I like printing, and I like cutting up paper, and the fact that you’ve then got something you can sell justifies it as well.”

“I’m based in Britain so I do all the design work here, my printer is British, as is all the paper suppliers, and the envelope and the cellophane packet are all done in the UK and it’s all packed in the UK.”
