Welcome to Winnefred Austin!

Pull up a seat, pour some coffee. We're happy to have you here!

Located in Birmingham, Alabama — Winnefred Austin is rooted in scripture and storytelling "for such a time as this."

I’m Ashley Steiner—Winnefred Austin’s 13th generation granddaughter. From the day I could double-fist crayons at less than a year old, I have loved drawing. Growing up, I always created homemade greeting cards to give friends and family for most any occasion. My mother, Michelle, inspired me to turn my passion into a business. In 2013 I started a greeting card company called Ashley Ink.

Fast forward to 2018—Little did I know, my grandmother from 13 generations ago would inspire the next generation of a company. Winnefred Austin was a London lady turned American pioneer.

Today, the company’s hope is to capture her pioneer spirit with products giving a nod to practicality, a touch of old-fashioned whim, and a timeless style to carry through every adventure.

Let Winnefred Austin be your go-to gal! As you write your own story, take Winnefred with you wherever you go.
