“Quality cards at a good price and the words and sentiments are lovely and appeal to our customers who tend to love a wordy card.”

 

Humour: Giggles, Recycled Paper, Bottle Tops from Hanson White (UKG)

“As a From the Heart store we offer UKG’s humour collections, which has something for everyone with many appealing to our older customers. We’ve tried ruder designs from other publishers but people tend to read and chuckle but our customers don’t buy them as the designs are too rude to send.”

“These pop up card designs sell really well, especially the age ones, and they’re something a bit different.”

 

Ancillary: General from Widdop & Co

“A wide selection of products from which you can order little and often. It’s good for trying a product out as you can order in ones or twos.”
