About MadebyEllis

We are a small friendly team who all love art and design with a passion. With backgrounds in illustration, design and publishing, all that matters to us is producing quality stationery products that are beautifully hand crafted and that stand out from the crowd.

All designs are carefully chosen in our small Bristol studio during our morning reviews and over a nice cup of tea! Our wonderful artists are always popping in for a chat and lots of deliberating takes place over the illustrations and the designs to come up with the perfect product. We get very excited when everything comes together and can’t wait to show them off.

Everything you can see in our store can be personalised and great care and thought is put into every piece of stationery you order from us from the printing to the packing. It is very much hands on here, so we are all involved in making sure your personalised notebooks, gifts and stationery arrive looking just right.

Our Story

James Ellis Stevens had finished college, was looking for something to do and started selling his mother's art to local shops in the Buckinghamshire area. These did well and it made sense to turn them into prints and soon shops were asking for the prints to be framed and a framing workshop was established in his parent's garage.

A few years went by and we began to publish work by other artists.  Our style evolved and we were approached by a greetings card company that was interested in publishing our prints as cards.  We decided that this was something we wanted to do ourselves and so, in 1997, we published our first range of greetings cards.  The business grew and we started diversifying into stationery and notebooks.

In 2011 a member of staff needed a gift for his son's teacher and he experimented by personalising one of our standard notebooks with the teacher's name.

It looked great and a few months later we started selling them on Not On The High Street.  We expanded our range and decided our personalised products needed a new home. MadeByEllis.com was created in 2013 to specialise solely in personalised gifts and stationery and the range now includes notebooks, writing sets, invites and thank you cards. Our sister company jamesellis.com continues to supply shops and individuals with non personalised greetings cards.


Our Aims

Nowadays we all seem to be looking for a richer and more individual shopping experience.  Ordinary, off the shelf products no longer seem exciting and unusual enough and we crave a more engaging way to buy presents that reflect our personality and offer a uniqueness and personal importance.  That's where personalisation comes in and it seems to be growing in popularity year by year.  Being able to personalise a gift offers creative freedom and the opportunity to put our own stamp on a product.  Adding a name, special date or message, instantly transforms a conventional gift into a distinctive and thoughtful one, relevant and unique to the recipient.  

Here at Made By Ellis our mission is to provide you with just that!  Beautiful, unique personalised gifts and stationery that go above and beyond the average present.  We aim to deliver attention to detail, friendly customer communication and carefully packaged gifts sent to you in the quickest way possible. 


The Environment



We try to be as environmentally firendly as possible. Our studio, printers and other machinery are all run by wind power from Good Energy and we donate any spare materials we have to the Children's Scrap Store in Bristol.
