Sharp attention to detail, high-end paper and creative insight are just a few of the ingredients in Durban-based Alice May’s stationery range. Bright tags finished with cotton ribbon, beautiful cards with the most sumptuous envelopes are gifts in themselves rather than mere accompaniments. ‘I work towards a product that is on trend, but what people want, beautiful yet functional, South African yet affordable,’ says Alice of her work. With a background in both footwear and graphic design, her well-rounded education sees her understanding the balance of appealing aesthetics. Vivid, coloured cards and tags take papery finery to a new level. Textured and perfectly finished with a lovely luxe feel, that make celebrating all the more fun! Contact Alice via email on email@example.com or visit her Facebook page for a list of stockists or to place an order. Her product range is expanding so keep an eye out for her Dippy Egg Boards, notebooks and invitation templates.
