About BowAndBell

Sales 25,516
On Etsy since 2015

Sweet, silly and sassy personalised paper goods made with love and laughs

My name is Kelly and I am the creator and one-woman-band behind Bow & Bell.

I started my business on maternity leave after having my son in 2015 to earn a few extra pennies. I wasn't able to go back to work part time to the agency where I was a graphic designer so decided to be brave and go it alone, and have never looked back!

I enjoy creating cute, quirky and sassy cards and prints and have amassed an eclectic range of designs which I hope you love as much as I have loved making them.

  • Kelly

    Owner, Designer, Customer Service

    Hello, I'm Kelly. Designer & illustrator. Wrangler of two little treasures and a Hungarian rescue dog. Wife to a bearded South African. And one-woman-band behind Bow & Bell.

  • C


    C is my little boy and one of the reasons I started this business. He often helps pack things into envelopes and is always willing to offer up his own creations for a card design!

  • Brent


    Brent is a willing volunteer at Bow & Bell who makes excellent tea and is a pro at emergency post office runs.

  • L


    L loves to help pack orders - peeling off envelopes strips and adding stickers. If your package has a weird dancing potato drawing on it, that's a my 3 year olds creation.

  • Stanley


    Stan is our rescue dog. He loves accompanying me on the post runs, and thoroughly enjoys getting in the way when I'm taking product photos. He's also chief box shredder and feet warmer under the desk.

Frequently asked questions
Holiday Notice

I am away from Monday 26 - Thursday 29 July. All orders between these dates will be shipped on Friday 30 July.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I am striving to reduce plastic waste within my business so have joined the Naked Cards movement! (@nakedcards on Instagram / to find out more)

All my cards and prints are sent out without cello bags. Smaller cards and postcards are placed inside a paper bag which you can reuse or recycle! Some cards come with removable card clasp stickers to keep their envelopes inside them and some are just loose inside their shipping envelope.

All items are dispatched inside board backed envelopes to keep them in tip top condition and to hopefully stop the postman from bending them en route!

I do not offer a gift wrapping service at this time.

Customer service and messages

I am based in the United Kingdom which is the GMT time zone. Please bear this in mind if you are waiting for a response from me. I will get back to you as soon as I can!
