Who Are Jack and Jess?

Jack and Jess is a luxury sustainable stationery business based in Edinburgh, Scotland.

The business is named after the grandparents of our founder Ann Martin. This photo from their wedding day was taken in 1939 (three days after the declaration of World War II).They spent just 24 hours together as newlyweds before being separated for four difficult years. After the war they were happily reunited. A creative couple - Jack was a keen fisherman, furniture maker and Pipe Major for the Scouts and Jess spent her spare time playing the piano and loved musicals.

Jack and Jess celebrated over 50 years together. We think the warmth of their long and happy marriage is truly inspirational and increasingly rare. Behind every Jack & Jess design is a celebration of this real life love story.
