Do you know someone who needs a little pick me up? If you want to send someone a little personalised greeting, then local illustration duo, Pickle Illustration, have the perfect option.

During these uncertain and difficult times Lauren Jefferis and Olivia Collins have designed and printed two limited edition postcards and are offering to handwrite and post it for you. Simply provide them with a personalised message and your recipients address and they will write and send it to your loved one, spreading some sunshine in these gloomy times, no matter how far the distance.

To show the appreciation of our healthcare workers during this time of crisis, 10% of all profits will be donated to the NHS.

“We wanted to develop a way for people to reach out to one another that was an alternative to a text message or a video chat. We chose postcards as its s a physical way of showing you’re thinking about someone, as well as giving them something illustrated for them to put up in their house. For the price of meeting up with a loved one for coffee we thought it would be a good idea if you could send them a personalised message on a postcard which we will write and send for you, so you don’t have to. To show our appreciation for healthcare workers we also wanted to make sure we could make it possible to donate 10% of all profits to the NHS.”

If you’d like to the idea of sending something a bit more personal than a text message, and want to support the NHS and a small local business, you can order one of these postcards from
