Humour

Across The Board from Rosie Made A Thing

“Our customers just love the characters and the humour is funny without being offensive. It’s great to hear customers giggle as they read the cards. We regularly take orders from customers who buy in bulk!”

Contemporary

Cloud Nine from Redback 

“Humorous, very modern designs, in bright colours. And everyone loves the publisher’s Sequined range!”

Traditional

General from Crumble & Core

“A new company for us. It covers the hand-painted look. The range is huge and is in pretty pastel colours ranging from beautifully painted flowers to bears. It also does small cards, which come boxed with either small silver stud earrings or a necklace.”

“A new company that’s local to us. Sarah is lovely and has a bright and unusual range of children’s cards. Fun characters, eg dinosaurs and unicorns, can be ages or blank birthday, basically she’s happy to put what you would like!”
