About Daisy MacGowan...

Hi I’m Daisy MacGowan and I started my business under the name Daisy MacGowan Illustration in 2020. By 2021 things had developed and expanded and I rebranded things as Paper Earth Press to reflect how far the business has come and the direction we wanted to go.

I live and work in Dundee in Scotland’s sunny east coast with my wonderful husband and daughter.

My path to the creative industry has been a fun one. I studied Illustration and Graphic Design 10 years ago. I then did a degree in Medieval Culture and after a round about path through lots of different jobs including working in shops, and even a science department, I found my way back to design.

I want to encourage people to enjoy art and give gifts sustainably so all of my products are made with high-quality, ethically and sustainably sourced materials - like 100% recycled card and organic fair trade cotton.

I am based in Dundee in a lovely studio in Block 5, at the back of the Vision Building. From this space I design, make, pack and ship all of my orders. I work with lots of lovely businesses in Dundee, Scotland and the wider UK to manufacture our products to the highest quality and ethical standards. I can proudly say that all of our products are printed right here in the UK.
