Back in 2014, our family-founded business started with a small shop in Glasgow. Since then, we’ve grown into the national online retailer that you know (we hope) and love (we assume). But our ethics, standards and penchant for a cheeky card have always remained the same.

Now with two stores in Scotland, we don’t plan on ever being a solely-online business. The ‘shop local’ commitment our IRL customers have completely blows us away. So we’ll continue to sell you products that put smiles on faces, by people who are treated really well and like coming to work, in even more locations soon.

Your online experience should be just as rewarding – so our shop is filled to the brim with products that’ll make even the smallest moment feel significant. We stock all the hits, from Emma Bridgewater to David Shrigley, Leuchtturm1917 to Emily McDowell. And, as champions of indies, we also stock some incredible products by not-so-well-known creatives. If you’re a creator, email creatives@penny-black.co.uk to find out if we can add your work to that ever-growing list.

Happy shopping, folks! And remember, we do all the hard work of sourcing ethical, sustainable products so you can feel and do good when you shop.
