Everyday

General from The Printed Peanut 

“Saltaire is known for cats so a beautiful cat card is always a winner and these works so well as a card, and they’re a slightly larger size making them great cards to frame! I love The Printed Peanut cats so much I even have one on a t-shirt!”

Cute

Animal Kingdom from Card Nest

“The styling of this range is beautiful, with cute characters but in more of a contemporary way. Sloths are always cute but this publisher’s design is particularly sweet… it’s the sleepy smiling face. A great pick up for children to give to parents.”

Humour

Pen Drawings from Hole In My Pocket

“I love a simple humour card; the ‘When I grow up’ design always makes me have a little giggle. It’s one that I point out regularly for difficult male purchase!”

Children’s

General from Rifle Paper Co

“There’s a quality, timeless feel to many of this publisher’s designs, making them really quite special. The ‘Dino-mite’ dino card, with its foil detailing, any child would love!”

Contemporary

Iron-On Patch from Petra Boase

“Fun, super bright and a beautifully embroidered colourful patch to add to your clothing… what’s not to love! A hit with kids and fun adults alike, these guys never stay on the shelves for long.”

Contemporary

Tatty Devine from Alison Hardcastle

“This was always going to be an awesome collection, pairing Alison’s bold graphics and colour blocking with Tatty Devine’s amazing style into one brilliant card collection. I’m a lover of yellow and a powerful statement the Fairground Arrow design went down a storm as an alternate Mother’s Day card!”

Ancillary
