New Partner! - Note Card Cafe


I am really delighted to announce that I have five new ranges of notecards now available through Note Card Cafe! 

Note Card Cafe is an online retailer in the USA working with designers and artists to create a vast selection of notecards and greeting cards suitable for any occasion. Designs are available in various sized packs including six designs in a pack of 36 or 72, with some designs available as a single design in packs of 24. All notecards are printed on a heavy 15 pt. card stock with a quality glossy finish to the exterior and with the inside left blank for your message. My new notecard ranges cover a variety of themes and celebrations including:


A selection of 'thank you' cards and one typography design card that is suitable for many greeting occasions. All feature folk inspired patterns in classic colour combinations including blue and yellow and red and blue, with motifs such as apples, pears, bunnies and birds, as well as floral motifs. 







Fabled Forest





'Fabled Forest' is a mixed range of 'thank you' cards and cards with no sentiment that are perfect for any occasion. Designs are brightly coloured and feature forest inspired themes with bold florals and animals such as hummingbirds, foxes, deer and more. There is also a whimsical heart design. 








'La Dolce Vita' lets you say 'thank you' with Mediterranean inspired style! Bold designs in classic blue and orange, or blue and yellow evoke a sense of classic Italy. Included are orange and lemon prints, tile patterns, leaf prints and floral designs. There is also a 'La Dolce Vita' typography design that can be used for many different greeting occasions. 











'Harvest' is a selection of vibrant designs inspired by freshly picked vegetables at harvest time, Autumn / Fall leaves and sunflowers. The cards are perfect for everyday sentiments, but are also ideal for Thanksgiving with on trend hand drawn typography in 'Gather' and 'Be Thankful' designs. 










'Winterland' is a collection of greeting cards suitable for the whole of the festive season. The range features three hand drawn typography designs with messages of 'Season's Greetings', 'Noel Noel!' and 'Happy Holidays!' There are additionally three pattern based designs featuring motifs including reindeers, baubles and Christmas trees all in a modern red, white and light teal colour way. 







All designs are available from Amazon.com. (Unfortunately, there isn't currently a way to purchase these cards in the UK, but I will keep you posted if that changes!) Simply search for 'Note Card Cafe' on Amazon.com plus the range name listed to shop, or use the links in this blog post.

Surtex & Licensing Expo 2017


My agents, Jewel Branding & Licensing will again be exhibiting my designs at Surtex in New York and Licensing Expo in Las Vegas later this month. This year Surtex runs from May 21st - 23rd and Licensing Expo from May 23rd - 25th. With both shows happening back to back for the first time, I've been super busy updating my portfolio with fresh new designs! All of my designs begin as hand drawings, so for months now I have been drawing, drawing, drawing - which has been wonderful! Here are a few examples - You can see more by following my Instagram @vickyyorkedesigns where I have documented much of my preparation for the shows. 






I am so inspired by the sea and recently took a working holiday to the coast to do more sketching and to provide some last minute inspiration for new collections. I'm now in the final stage of preparation, pulling all of my patterns together and creating product mock-ups. Below is a sneaky peak at some of my collections, the first of which is aptly named 'Jewels of the Sea'.



My 'Sand Dunes' collection was inspired by the stunning coastal flowers found in the sandy banks around the beautiful National Trust beach at Studland in Dorset and the calming colours of the sand and the sea. 


I've added many new designs to my portfolio covering surface pattern design, illustration and typography in my bright and whimsical style. As well as coastal prints, themes include animals, florals and designs inspired by travel, as well as Christmas and other seasonal designs. A few more examples of what you can expect to find in my portfolio are shown below. 




There is so much more to see, so if you are visiting the shows please be sure to stop by and see my agents at:

LICENSING EXPO BOOTH H94
Email beth@jewelbranding.com for appointments. 


If you can't make the shows, but are still interested in seeing more and potentially licensing my designs please email me at vickyyorkedesigns@yahoo.co.uk or contact Jewel Branding.

New products added at With Love From!


Over at With Love From they are gearing up for Mother's Day, which is 26th March here in the UK. They've added a number of new items into my product collection featuring a new phrase in my bespoke hand drawn typography against a backdrop of bold and colourful confetti hearts. The sentiment, 'thank you for being you' is perfect for Mum or Nan and features across a number of new products including box frames, (which have the choice of a black or white frame)...


... a gorgeous silver plated handbag mirror...


 ... and this super-huggable cushion that is filled with an over-sized inner to make it extra-plump and luxurious! 

Cushions are now also available in my 'Mr & Mrs' design, so if you are celebrating a wedding or anniversary this could make a perfect gift to mark that special day! 


Back with Mother's Day and With Love From have also just released a box frame in my pink confetti hearts design, which has space for 3 lines of personalised text. This allows you complete control over the message for your loved one and makes a completely unique gift. 


Of course, there are plenty of existing gifts available that you can personalise to fit the occasion, including my engraved photo frame. I love this photo of me and my lovely Mum taken on holiday last year! (Although she won't be happy when she sees I've posted it!) <3


All my designs from With Love From can be personalised, so whatever the occasion you can create the perfect gift! 



For best chance of delivery for Mother's Day via Royal Mail be sure to place your order at With Love From before 4pm on Wednesday 22nd March!
