Perkins & Morley is an established British design house publishing original, design-led greetings cards & licensing artwork for gift & home-wares.
Designing, publishing and selling cards sits at the heart of the business acting as a showcase for their prolific and diverse design talent and a catalyst for licensing the designs to specialist gift and home-ware product manufacturers.
Jill Perkins & Jan Morley have designed many different products – initially designing wooden toys in Sri Lanka for 2 years; producing toy designs for Pier 1, VBI Imports and other large international companies.
They then turned their hand to tableware & giftware design, producing thousands of designs which were then sold in Macy’s, Bloomingdales and other large retailers around the world.
They have had great success in the UK; their designs have been sold in BHS, House of Fraser, John Lewis, Heals and Next.
The vintage cheese label range for BIA is currently being sold in John Lewis and the camembert baker by DRH Collection was a Winner of The Excellence in Housewares “Top of the Table” 2011 award, Housewares Tabletop Product of the Year 2011 & Short listed for Gift of the Year 2011.
They started designing and publishing their own design led greetings cards in 2010 and these have proved a hit with customers; their Collective Noun range particularly is now a best seller and is available on cards, tea towels, coasters, fridge magnets, mugs and key rings. It is also available on stationery, chalk boards, hooks etc by Padblocks.
They have a love of nature and a quirky sense of humour which they bring to their designs. They are very committed to being eco friendly using recycled card, envelopes and fully biodegradable bags.
All proudly designed & made in the UK.
Jill lives in Devon and Jan lives in Cumbria
What our customers say:
We have had the pleasure of working with Perkins and Morley for the last six years. They have this amazing ability of producing designs that are in demand from New Zealand to Canada, and with which we have had much success over the years. One part of their formula for success is to create a pattern that is timeless, so one can spend time investing in the design, knowing that sales will follow for years to come.
David Holmes Managing Director
The DRH Collection
We spotted the Perkins and Morley stand straight away at last year’s Harrogate trade show; their designs were just so original and eye-catching.
Dealing with the company is a pleasure; we get very personal and professional service and the cards are selling extremely well.
The website is easy to use and we look forward to expanding our range. Each card is a miniature work of art and they fit in well to our gallery setting.
The cards are really high quality and it is lovely to see customers coming back in to add to their “collections”. One customer refuses to post hers as she can’t bear to let them go!
We look forward to supplying Perkins and Morley goods for a long time.

Perkins and Morley are that rare breed of a company whose products are not only well designed and affordable, but their customer service is excellent and efficient.
My order arrived within a few days, the cards were beautifully packaged and if anything even better than the fantastic images on their website.
The ‘Collective Nouns’ range are proving to be a particular favourite with my customers; they create a real talking point and give my shop a point of difference which in this competitive climate is what you need as an independent retailer.
