Deborah Jones art prints and posters

Deborah Jones is the creator of two the most successful ranges of greetings cards of all time; Forever Friends and Hoppy Street.


Told by a colleague in the early 1980s: “don’t go into designing cards – it’s a mug’s game and you’ll never make it”, over 600 million of Deborah Jones’ Forever Friends cards have now been sold. At one stage, so prolific was she that she was personally creating over 1200 new pieces of Forever Friends artwork each year.


The range was originally created for the Andrew Brownsword Collection, which was later bought by Hallmark, the largest publishing company in the world. When her contract with Hallmark expired in 2000, Deborah Jones took the decision to end her link to Forever Friends and to take a sabbatical year away from the greetings card business. She returned to the world of design in 2001 with a brand new range called Hoppy Street.


Hoppy Street was an immediate triumph and that same year won Deborah Jones the award for Best Cute or Whimsical Range at The Henries, the British greetings card Oscars.


Born in 1959, Deborah Jones is married to Toby and now lives on a small farm on the outskirts of Bath, where, amongst other things, they keep and breed rare chickens, sheep and a small herd of alpacas.

More about framing

In the Design Studio

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.

Colour Perfecting in the Print Room

In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.

Measuring Up

After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.

Assembling Frames in the Framing Workshop

We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.

Hand-finishing in the Framing Workshop

Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.

The Last Stop

In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.

Mounting the Prints

The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.

Laying the Glass

Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.

The Final Product

After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.

Transferring to Canvas

For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.

Finishing the Canvas Edging

As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
