Welcome to Puffin Prints!

 

Puffin Prints is a small illustration and gifts business, run by mother and daughter pair Deborah & Rachel.
Rachel hand paints and illustrates puffins and their pals using a mixed media approach of watercolour, gouache and acrylic paints, before printing our Puffin Pals illustrations onto lovely cards, canvases, mugs and more, as well as taking commissions for pretty much any illustrative application you can think of!
Pet portraits, wedding invitations, children’s book illustrations - even custom printed adhesive stickers for a yacht… You can see all of these in our portfolio.

Thanks so much for visiting,

Meet the Puffin Pals!

 

All the puffin pals were hand painted in watercolour and gouache by Rachel, inspired by her youth sailing around Beaumaris Bay and Puffin Island. She draws inspiration from the stunning mountain and seascapes that surround Anglesey, where she lives with partner Farren (and ten minutes away from Mum, Deborah, of course!)

Puffin Prints cards

say it the right way!

All of our cards are printed in the UK in stunning full colour using high quality semi-gloss 350gsm board from recycled and well controlled sources. Our cards are all blank inside so that they can convey exactly what you’d like to them to, and be used for any occasion!

Puffin Prints Commissions

 

Rachel loves to take commissions on whenever she gets the chance, but there is no set price list for commissions. Here is Rachel’s reasoning on this:

"I think people are generally fearful that they'll ask for a sketch of their hamster, and I'll get back to them in two days with a completed sketch and charge them £6572 for it. The reason for I don't post the prices is that it is entirely dependent on what the customer wants for their commission, and it would take me a very long time to compile a list of all the possible things I can imagine a customer might want. It varies from materials to size to traditional vs digital to whether they want the final piece framed, do they want the original or a print, the list goes on and on, and so the easiest way for me, (and easier for the customer too, navigating such a list or table would be a frightful task I imagine!) is simply to respond on a client to client basis, with no pressure for them to commit to anything until we have agreed on a price and they are happy for me to begin the work.”

Rachel has worked on a number of different commission based pieces in the past, including pet portraits, puffin portraits, wedding invitations, website graphics, logo design, children’s book illustrations, book cover design, and many other exciting ventures! You can see a selection of these works below, or more on our portfolio page.
