“We are located in the country so wildlife and rural scenes are very relevant to people. And each range has its unique and different images not found on cards anywhere else.”

Contemporary: Pizazz from Nigel Quiney

“The designs are stunning. The application of foiling is beautifully done, including on the unicorns. The cards suit older people down to children. The Pizazz Male range is great too.”
