Bespoke, high-quality gifts and stationery to inspire positivity and wellbeing. Beautiful designs, unique games and uplifting products, all produced sustainably in the heart of the Berkshire countryside.
SD Studios started off as a series of creative side projects by designer and game-maker Stacey Darlington. Inspired by family, friends and life events, her intent is to create fun, beautiful and unique games and gifts that encourage wellbeing, laughter and kindness.
Originating back in 2014 with the hilarious ‘Guzzling Sharks’ drinking card game, Stacey was inspired by the COVID pandemic to create the original ‘Be Kind’ cards in 2020, designed to boost spirits and share compassion through words when face-to-face contact was no longer possible. The thoughtful quotes, produced sustainably and beautifully presented and illustrated, became immediately popular as gifts, message cards, and personal motivational tools. The range has since expanded to a boutique collection of stationary, gifts, and the inspiring ‘Be Kind’ card collections: all based on that original intent to increase wellbeing and encourage kindness in the world.
SD Studios remains a bespoke provider of Thoughtful Gifts beautiful, sustainable and unique gifts, run by Stacey alongside her husband Stephen. Based in the Berkshire countryside, their focus is on developing high-quality and sustainable products that are kind to the earth, clear in purpose and spread joy and kindness. All SD Studio products are produced in the UK using sustainable and high-quality local materials.
