My Inspiration

My days are spent creating handmade, eco-friendly gift wrapping for you, my lovely customers!

The Importance of the Gift Wrapping Ritual

Wrapped By Alice was, quite simply, inspired by my love of gift wrapping. I’m a firm believer that as much love and thought should go into the presentation of a gift, as went into choosing the present itself.

In my eyes, the wrapping of a gift is the most important part of the gifting ritual, because it shows how much you really care.

Finding the Perfect Gift Wrapping

I love being able to be a part of the special gifting process, each time a customer decides to buy one of my products.

My Mission

The ethos behind Wrapped By Alice is to produce beautiful, eco-friendly gift wrapping, which my customers can use with both joy and a clear conscience.

My Eco-Friendly Ethos

I seek out the best quality eco-friendly papers. In fact, all the papers I use are made from a minimum of 80% recycled materials. Not to mention, all of my gift wrapping is itself 100% recyclable. And the same goes for my packaging!

I also use minimal amounts of ink in my products, with the majority of inks I do use being water-based.

In keeping with this spirit, my designs are largely inspired by my love of animals and nature.

My main goal is that my customers can enjoy the happiness of gift wrapping, without having to worry about harming the environment.

 

My Printing Process

Each design begins life as an original ink drawing, from which I create a simple stamp – otherwise known as a block cut. These stamps are then used in the hand printing of my products. All of these handmade items are printed from my home studio in Sheffield.

For some of my most popular wrapping paper designs, I have to use a slightly different printing process. In order to keep up with demand, these designs are printed by an independent, Sheffield-based firm, who use their traditional lithographic printing press to create faithful copies of my original artwork.

I hope that the relaible eco-friendly credentials of my wrapping papers – from their local production, to their high-recycled-content, and their ability to be fully recycled – is what sets them apart from the mass-produced alternatives available on the high street.
