what we do
Little Liefje is a baby stationers based in Norfolk. We specialise in creating beautiful birth announcements which can be kept and treasured for years to come. Our aim is to radiate your joy and blissful excitement, through the design, the feel and even the traditional delivery of each and every card that you send to your family and friends. Digital messages are great at getting news out quickly, but they can't truly transfer your emotion, or move someone else's heart. That is what we love about traditional post . . . and we think it is pretty special!
Providing a creative approach and using that to inspire other products in our range is what we enjoy. Added to that, a wish to make you smile and feel confident that you are sharing your joy your way.
inspiration and designs
The design process is truly inspired by all that we see, feel, hear and smell around us that ignites a passion inside, whether consciously or not. Colours, textures, sounds and scents and what they conjure up in our minds. Making connections with happy childhood memories, which in turn bring warm feelings of familiarity, or sparking off fresh, new ideas. Children's illustration from favourite illustrators, to interior design and architecture, to patterns created using exquisite colour combinations. Designs of years gone by, plus the simplicity of including only the necessary.
The paper is thoughtfully chosen for each project so that it adds to the essence of the design. Amongst others, Gesso is used most prominently for its soft and organic texture. It gives a feeling of luxury at the same time as conveying a feeling of natural simplicity. All the papers we use are FSC certified.
The printing process is also carefully considered, using a mix of digital and beautiful, tactile letterpress, to fully exude the intention of the design to you.
And, when all three aspects (design, paper and printing technique) are brought together, delightful outcomes are created that are exquisite and unique.
