About Ten and Sixpence



Ten and Sixpence is the work of illustrator and designer, Claire, who works from her studio in rural Cambridgeshire supervised by her trusty rabbit, Mr.Velvets.

Claire designs and creates a range of stationery from greetings cards and wedding invitations, to birth announcements and little cards to simply say hello. 




From an early age, Claire has always loved stationery (and bunnies) and delighted in spending her pocket money on all things paper. After studying illustration & printmaking at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, she spent time working at a glorious treasure trove of paper & print in Australia, where she discovered a world of papers full of colour and pattern. After moving back to the UK, excited by these wonderful papers, and with lots of friends getting married looking for invitations 'a little bit different', Ten and Sixpence was born.


Mr.Velvets hails from the discovery city of Dundee and met Claire whilst she was at art college. He also loves all things paper so they became fast friends and he shortly moved into her studio. Inseparable ever since, he now holds the position of studio supervisor.

We are very excited about our online shop and hope you will be too! All cards are printed in the UK on FSC certified board before being hand-finished and assembled in the studio. Recycled envelopes are used where possible, alongside our recycled gift boxes.  


*NEWSFLASH* Claire has gone back to art school, where she is enjoying drawing rabbits and bears on the MA Children's Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art. If you'd like to follow her adventures in illustration, you can visit her blog here: http://clairemesser.tumblr.com
