There is nothing more satisfying than hearing a customer say “this card is just right”. The personal touch involved in choosing and sending a card is always appreciated, whatever the occasion. By sourcing cards from over a dozen companies, and continually updating our selection, we aim to give our customers an extensive variety of themes and designs to choose from. Our aim is to offer affordable cards which are just a little bit different to those you can find in High Street shops.
Suppliers include: Noel Tatt, Abacus, Nigel Quiney, Paperhouse, ICG, Mint, White Cotton & Paper Rose.
We are delighted to stock blank greetings cards by several local artists.
