Sioux Alice is a Stationery company specialising in colourful, hand illustrated, relatable and as our customers say ‘hilarious’ Greetings cards & Gifts. Sioux Alice opened its virtual doors as an online shop in January 2014 and is based in not so sunny Manchester, UK.
‘Sioux Alice’ is the creation of designer and illustrator, Jasmine Sioux Alice, who has steered the business from tiny beginnings to its present, internationally known, presence. Sioux Alice has been featured by the likes of Cosmopolitan, BuzzFeed and Huffington Post and can be found in a variety of stores, markets and websites across the UK.
All designs are completely hand drawn at the Sioux Alice Headquarters where Jasmine spends most of her days working on new products, doodling and spinning on my office chair.
Each design starts out as sketch. This can be a lengthy process often with a lot of scribbling out, procrastination and reviewing. The finished work is then either scanned into a computer and hand digitalised or drawn straight into Adobe Illustrator using a graphics tablet. Once finished, it is then sent to a local printer to be professionally printed on 350gsm card. All cards are then packaged inside a sealed cellophane sleeve with a 100% recycled brown kraft envelope.
If you like stationery, funny quotes or just like those pretty, bright white Instagram pictures, you can follow Sioux Alice on Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat (but mainly Instagram).

Job Title: BOSS OF EVERYTHING.
“I created Sioux Alice in 2014, like (mostly) all small business' it started out as a hobby and grew into what it is today. I have always been creative and loved coming up with catchy sayings at school, so it's no surprise I run a wordy card business!
I live with my partner, Luke and my cat, Giuseppe in Manchester. I'm obsessed with plants, animals and avocados and I suffer terribly from 'resting bitch face' syndrome (hence the RBF products).
They say you can't buy happiness but my cards will put a smile on anyones face.
