It has been a while since the last update and round-up on all our new releases, so let's get right into it! We have been busy and there are many exciting new launches on our webstore!
Wordsearch Postcard Set - The Third Collection
We are super psyched to finally launch the third installation of honey&gazelle's bestselling range of puzzle postcards! Being wordsearch puzzle geeks ourselves, we have been absolutely thrilled at the positive response towards the Wordsearch Postcards. Do you know that the first collection of Wordsearch Postcards was introduced in July last year?
Wordsearch Postcards are without doubt, one of our favourite products in our retail line and I always get a buzz of excitement whenever I am designing a new collection. The third installation features brand new puzzles with accompanying illustrations in the following themes: Warning: Hot!, Childhood Games, Languages, and Sweets for my Sweet.
Watercolour Memo Card Pack
The Watercolour Memo Card Pack is a totally new addition to our retail range. When Min and I were young, we often bought boxes and boxes of memo cards that were often adorned with super cute Japanese illustrations. We would then use these memo cards as little greeting cards for birthday presents, petite cards for regular messages to friends, note cards to jot down highly important study notes, and strangely enough, bookmarks.
Similarly, these watercolour memo cards are versatile blank cards for you to use however you wish. We love how dreamy the splashes of watercolour turned out! These cards are printed on premium recycled matte stock and can handle many types of markers and inks without leakage. This means that you would be able to use and write on the front AND back of the cards without the fear of ink seeping through to the other side.
We love the memo cards so much that we have made them a permanent addition to the honey&gazelle retail line! We will introduce various styles and designs in future, so do keep a lookout for new memo card releases if you like them as much as we do!
New arrivals of single greeting cards
Last but not least, we have been consistently updating our range of single (individual) greeting cards on a biweekly basis. The below images reveal some of the new designs that are available for purchase! Please remember that all single greeting cards are produced in a very limited quantity, so if you like a particular design, we would definitely recommend that you pick up it up fast!
Do you have any product suggestions for us? Tell us what you'd like to see us produce next!
The new releases in July centers around the lost art of writing. In this day and age, we are always texting or emailing each other. It sure is a lot more convenient but nothing beats receiving a handwritten note from a loved one!
Min and I love writing to the ones we love and we love having stationery options to make the process of writing more fun and personal. We are so proud to finally release a new postcard set and single greeting cards! We have been working on these for a substantial amount of time and they are finally stocked in our online store as of today.
First up, the Faith Postcard Set. Postcards are such a nostalgic reminder of our teen years as we would often collect free postcards and write to our friends daily. In fact, we still collect postcards and have our own individual stashes hidden in our homes!
The Faith Postcard Set was created specifically to encourage. The words on the postcards never fail to comfort and strengthen us, thus we inserted them into our designs hoping that they will in turn serve as a timely reminder to someone in need. We hope that these postcards will encourage you and that you will use them to encourage the people in your life as well!
A highlight of this series is the little prayer speech bubble that you can find at the back of the postcards. These prayer bubbles were included as an active reminder for you to keep the people you are writing to in your prayers and to let them know that you are praying for them. You don't have to pen down an entire prayer - the space is too small anyway - but you could write down one or two areas that you would be praying for, e.g. guidance or assurance in their lives. Prayer is powerful!
Ever since we expanded our product line to include postcards and greeting cards, we have always been bombarded with this one question, "Can I just buy one card?". Be it online via our contact form, email, our social media platforms (Instagram and Facebook) and conversations on our Carousell store or in person during our pop-up events, this question never fails to pop up. So yes, we heard you loud and clear!
By popular demand, we are so happy to finally launch a range of single greeting cards! The range is permanent but the designs are of limited quantity. New designs will be introduced very often to keep this collection fresh and buzzing. Here are the first four greeting cards that are already available online: Thank You, Little Things, Cherished, and New Beginnings.
All greeting cards are single-sided and comes with white envelopes and confetti stickers. Being a design studio and paper-obsessive fans, we took a very long time to decide on the paper type for the greeting cards. We combed through all our paper supplies and printed samples on so many different types of paper before finally deciding on a gorgeous 100% recycled matte paper with a lovely weight of 280g/m2. This paper is different from the recycled matte paper we are currently using for all our postcards and we love it so much! We hope that you would be able to feel and see the difference!
To all our customers who have been waiting to purchase single greeting cards from us: thank you for waiting and also for giving us your feedback! We love to have conversations with our customers and we truly value all feedback as it helps us improve and develop our products. We will always try our best to meet your demands and needs!
Do you like the new postcards and greeting cards? What other stationery items would you like us to work on? Do let us know!
We have reached mid-year and it is time for a reality check, as well as a period of relaxing if you have been working way too hard since the start of 2016.
The webstore has been stocked with new releases and we are madly in love with this month's new arrivals! First up, are the freshly launched art prints.
Backache started as a mock-up art print for our studio's Readymade Collection of art prints with a quote that eludes to an inside joke between Min and I about ageing and our never-ending body aches. However, the response to the art print was surprisingly enthusiastic and thus, we finally decided to release it as a proper product for sale!
The intricate border, along with the inky black and soft parchment details of Live Your Life was hugely inspired by vintage gorgeous fairytale book covers. Think of first editions with a tinge of gothic influence. These new art prints serve as timely reminders that life is more than just about work and that we should all cherish and enjoy every moment.

Vacation season is here! If you are avid travellers like us, you will be way too familiar with the fidgety boredom of long journeys. No matter how scenic the route is, there will always be a lull where you find yourself drowsy and/or bored. This is why we are so thrilled to finally and formally launch the Travel Activity Kit!
Chockfull of interactive puzzles and activities in the form of our signature postcards and unconventional ideas, the Travel Activity Kit promises hours of entertainment while you make your way to your happy destination.
We designed special travel editions of our bestsellers: the Wordsearch postcard, Sudoku postcard, I Spy postcard, CIY (Colour-It-Yourself) postcard, and Jiffy Jots notepad. Additionally, we have created new activity-based postcards that we are soft-launching along with the Travel Activity Kit.
Doodle Best You Can postcards are designed to guide you in expanding your creativity through any form of doodling, sketching, or drawing, while the Crossword Puzzle postcard has been highly requested from our awesome customers and a natural progression in our range of puzzle postcards.
Also included in the kit are pre and post vacation evaluation forms that serves as an emotional and mental aid to help you prepare for the trip ahead and also reflect on the vacation once it is over.
The abundance of goodies in the Travel Activity Kit may be overwhelming at first glance, which is why there is an instruction manual to guide you through the various activities within the handy and convenient pouch. Plus, we remembered to bundle in stationery, so all you really need to do is grab the kit and get going! Happy holidays!
What do you think of our new releases, and where are you going for your next vacation? Tell us all about it in the comments below!
The newest releases by the honey&gazelle Design Studio are new concepts that we have been working on for a long time, so you can just imagine our excitement (and anxiety) about launching them!
Do you remember playing the hide and seek game, I Spy, with your family members or friends when you were young? It usually starts with a sentence like this, "I spy with my little eye..." and then depending on where you were, you may have asked your friends to spot a red truck or a cute little sparrow.
We are sentimental fools and small kids at heart, thus we decided that our newest range of puzzle-themed postcards would be focused on the I Spy game!
The I Spy Postcard Set contains four different puzzles in fresh pastel hues and adorable illustrations. At the back of each postcard, the speech bubble reveals the hidden motif that you have to find. It is a really simple game that can keep you entertained for a short while!
Pretty Paper Pack: Flashy Florals
The other new arrival we are super thrilled with is the Pretty Paper Pack! We have always been huge lovers of paper, especially papers with gorgeous colours and textures. One of our favourite activity is to go into a paper store or a stationery store and just get lost in all the pretty. This obsession with paper led to the creation of Pretty Papers!
Pretty Paper Pack: Mellow Motifs
Pretty Papers are basically multi-purpose papers that can be used for anything and everything. The papers are double-sided so you essentially get 8 different designs in a pack.
There are a ton of ways to use paper. If you are hoping to get into some craft projects and need some inspiration, just keep reading our blog! We will be posting various easy tutorials on how to use Pretty Papers (or any kind of paper actually) in the weeks to come, so stay tuned for that!
We have also released two new art prints in our store. Click on the images or the links below to go straight to the product pages to find out more about the new art prints!
I hope you are as excited about our new products as we are! Tell us what you would like to see next and we may just get started on it (:
Yes, we have finally created and released three new art prints. It has been a couple of months since new art prints were launched in our store and we are glad to inject some life into our art print selection!
The art prints are all professionally printed on premium 300gsm matte photo paper. Let's get this out of the way: we love matte paper. This is why all our products are printed on matte paper, and as much as possible, 100% recycled matte paper. However, do you know that you can drop in a special request to us, if you would like an art print to be printed on another material?
We have printed copies of our art prints on super glossy sheets and even a full page sticker! These are by-request only and you just have to contact us for more information, if you have a special idea in mind. Likewise, the Readymade Collection of art prints are also available for print in various paper types!
Here are our newest art prints to arrive in our store. I truly hope you will like them, as I had a blast designing these! The colours and energy of the art prints are unlike any we had in the store previously. Click on the images to go straight to the product pages to find out more about the individual art prints!
