Royal Wedding card designing frenzy

With Prince Harry and Megan Markle’s happy nuptials coming up on May 19, the GCA has issued a challenge to its members – to design as many bespoke cards as possible to send on to the happy couple!

In an email to members, Sharon Little, ceo of the GCA asked members to send a picture of the card to the GCA and then to send it onto Harry and Meghan, care of Kensington Palace.

“We just thought it would be something fun to do for the Royal Wedding,” says Sharon. “We’re hoping that we’ll flood the newlyweds with lots of bespoke cards showcasing the talent in the UK greeting card industry.”

Nigel Quiney, Dandelion Stationery, Doodleicious Art, Catherine Pain and Gail Grisham are among the publishers to have shared their card designs for the royal couple.
