Colours May Vary

Colours May Vary is based in Leeds and is an independent shop stocking a range of beautiful, useful and inspirational wares.

Our main focus is graphic art and design, typography, illustration, and product design. We stock a range of books, journals, prints, cards, gifts, wrap and stationery and we source our collection both locally and Internationally from a mix of established and up-and-coming producers.

We believe in everything we stock. If we wouldn’t buy it ourselves we don’t stock it. Our focus is quality and integrity in both design and production. We are passionate about both the method of production and the final product. From time to time we commission exclusive items and we try to ensure that they are produced within the UK using high quality materials by independent makers. You will find links to makers on product descriptions.

If you don’t see what you are looking for on the site or would be interested in collaborating¬†with us or supplying us please drop us a line or give us a bell. We would love to hear from you. We also love getting real mail so maybe even send us a postcard or a sample of your work.

If you are interested in stocking your product at the shop please call or email and share your work with us prior to dropping by, we are not always able to give you the time we would like on spec. If you do send us a sample and would like us to post it back please enclose a stamped addressed envelope.

If you are interested in hosting a workshop or an event in our show space please drop us a line.

We receive a large number of submissions daily so please be patient as we may not be able to get back to you immediately. If you do not hear from us within 7 days however, you are more than welcome to badger us for a response.

We are a small team and passionate about both our products and our customer service. We want your experience to be the best it can be. If you have any questions or comments at all please get in touch. We would love to hear your feedback!
