Announcement    COVID-19 UPDATE:

We are still open for online orders! We are doing our best to follow the government guidelines and taking precautionary measures to keep our customers and ourselves safe. In light of this, we have reduced our post office runs to once a week (Monday), and have stocked up on stamps to allow us to use the local post box rather than unnecessary interaction at the post office to help keep the risk as low as possible. Please be patient with us during this time as this will mean that it may take longer than usual for your order to reach you, and the postal service itself may be delayed due to their own COVID procedures. While this is out of our hands, please reach out to us if you have any concerns with your order and we will do our best to accommodate you :)

Take care and keep safe, and I really appreciate all of your orders and continued support for our small business during this time! You are AMAZING!

Go gently,
Mell x

******************************

Hello & welcome to The Sunshine Bindery! You'll find delightfully joyful greeting cards, eco friendly stationery and handmade journals, notebooks and book related gifts!

As a small business our ethics are all about supporting and loving the environment as much as we can, so we have made sure that all of our cards are printed onto UK-sourced recycled stock and come supplied with a matching recycled envelope, and are finished and packaged by hand in a biodegradable corn starch bag for that low waste, eco friendly gift giving alternative.

Our journals are made by hand completely from scratch, using hand tools and traditional book binding techniques, and are hand-stitched using a simple needle and natural waxed linen and cotton thread. They are filled to the brim with 100% recycled paper and our leather journals are made souly from second-hand, found and thrifted leather, so that we are keeping out of the demand and supply chain of buying new, as our method and ethos is all about bringing life and love into the world with our products as much as we can :)

Delightfully joyful illustrations & nourishing self care through hand woven journals, cards, gifts and environmentally friendly stationery

Hello! My name is Mell and I am the quirky little dreamer behind The Sunshine Bindery.

We are a small independent creative business specialising in spreading as much sunshine as humanly possible through our delightfully joyful illustrated paper goods, hand crafted journals and eco friendly stationery, originally inspired by nourishing support through self care, spreading happiness to others and the incredible zero waste movement. I am a big believer in self care and using art and writing to calm the mind and reconnect with ourselves, and journals have always had a huge place in my heart for being that safe space to create in, as though they are tiny little worlds within themselves where you can completely yourself. I have a huge notebook collection myself so I very much understand the stationery addiction!

With all of our products, we design, source and make everything by hand, celebrating locally, ethically and sustainably sourced materials and eco friendly businesses as much as possible, and it is our intention to keep exploring ways to lessen our impact as we go along. I whole-heartedly believe in trying to limit our use of our beautiful Earth's resources, and giving back as much as we can, so this is my way of trying to contribute to changing our attitudes towards the environment in a positive and gentle way, by providing beautifully hand crafted products with a low impact gift giving alternative. This is why we intentionally choose to champion recycled materials for our greetings cards and prints from UK suppliers, biodegradable corn starch bags to package our products in (no plastic, yay!), and use plastic free, 100% recycled cardboard mailers and recycled acid-free tissue paper to wrap your orders in.

    I write poetry with my heart and make things with my hands. I adore notebooks, I listen to songs on repeat for days, and eat banana pancakes at the weekend. My absolute favourite place in the world would be by a calm, quiet lake with my sketchbook :)
