Sarah Hamilton

Sarah Hamilton
Founder

I'm Sarah H, an Artist & Designer making colourful, contemporary prints, cards and homewares in my Mid-Century home/studio in sunny South London.  I set up the 'Just A Card' campaign as I feel extremely privileged to be making a living as an Artist, and am grateful to each and every customer and shop/gallery who've supported me.

I’ve been running the campaign for over four years now, and am thrilled to now be joined by a great team. Together, and with your continued support, we will ensure our message spreads far and wide to keep our towns & cities culturally vibrant and diverse!

I’m Michael, and I own The Leaping Hare Gallery & Framers in Easingwold, North Yorkshire, along with my wife, Sarah. The gallery combines our love of originality with enormous admiration for the talent of the artists and makers with whom we have the pleasure of working. 

We believe that every person who walks through our door is a potential customer and we value each and every sale, even if it is just a card. The ‘Just a Card’ campaign fits so very beautifully with our ethos and our way of doing business.

Roy Mouncey
Press & PR

Hi, I’m Roy, founder of Howling Moon PR. 
Originally from Yorkshire, I’m now lucky enough to be able to work from both London and Norfolk (where I manage to find some time to enjoy the wide-open skies and wind-swept beaches!).


We work with small and medium sized businesses in the gift, home, interiors and lifestyle sectors to promote their products and raise their profile through the press and media.  

I’m delighted to be part of the Just A Card campaign as I’ve long been an advocate of small independent businesses – people who are passionate about their products and who are specialists in their chosen field make the world a much more interesting place!

Kate Marsden

I’m Kate, a textile designer and blogger, writing under the name Made By Mrs M. I design patterns for fabric, inspired by mid-century and brutalist architecture.  I apply these to products as well as the fabrics themselves, which I sell to stitchers, quilters and crafters.

I’ve been a supporter of the Just A Card campaign since the outset -partly because of my first hand knowledge of how incredibly important every little sale is to designer makers; but also because I love to see our High Streets filled with beautiful, fascinating independent shops, and want to help to keep them open!

Justine Ellis

I’m Justine, a printmaker and designer specialising in original, hand screen printed art and homewares.

My designs have a bold, textural quality reminiscent of mid century textiles and ceramics. When I am not armed with a squeegee, you’ll find me teaching adults to screen print.

‘Just a Card’ is a great way of helping to spread the word about the brilliant independent galleries, shops, artists and designers out there.

I’m delighted to be part of the Just a Card campaign team because so many of my lovely clients are small businesses and designer/makers, and without my clients I wouldn’t have a business at all!
