SABIVO Design is a boutique publisher, specialising in design and production of beautiful handmade greeting cards and wedding stationery. We are proud that our product is exclusively British, from design concept to packaging in house.
Our cards are stocked in premium Department Stores in the likes, of Fenwick, Williams & Griffin, Bentalls, Hoopers to name a few and in mainland Europe.
We hope that the first weeks of store opening have been good for our lovely retailers. It is such a difficult and different time for us all and hopefully customers are getting used to the new ‘normal’ and supporting all our lovely independents.
We wanted to reach out to everyone reading this blog as Autumn Fair has been cancelled, so all our trade activity has now moved online. By showing our NEW ranges we are hopefully helping our lovely customers with planning and stocking.
Rainbow range knocks on the ‘botanical’ trend with painterly foliage and is hand-crafted with glitter and our signature floral sequins.
We have added relations and wedding designs to the quirky Clusters range.
Christmas 2020 is also available to order now but we will get a proper blog post dedicated to the most important season of them all in another blog post.
Hope what we have on offer now is suitable for your customers and we look forward continuing to do business with you all.
I am writing this blog post at a very peculiar moment in time when the whole world is experiencing a global pandemic due to Covid-19. By now, pretty much everybody knows how coronavirus temporarily or irreversibly is changing our lives and work. I have called this post Lockdown Diaries but I am seriously hoping this will be the only post in this Diary.
I have collated a few pictures for your visual pleasure, but generally we have been juggling homeschooling, work and looking after family like never before. Ivo is a critical worker by day, so he is still out and about. Like most gardens, ours is a permanent sports ground, the kitchen table is a permanent table tennis set up and there are school books in every corner of the house. We have been baking and exercising more than ever before, which probably would lead us to being fatter and fitter than never before. I wish clapping uses more calories than it does…
You might be curious to know that I am not a fan of running but adore roller skiing, which is the training ground for cross country skiing. You would be relieved to hear I do not wish for snow right now. Instead, I am happy to reconnect with nature and the beautiful countryside around our home offices.
We’ve been given this gift of time at the moment, so naturally, I turned into creativity for an outlet. It’s the first time in forever that I thoroughly enjoyed the painting and design process and did not squeeze this range between school runs, trade shows, admin, licensing projects, agents, orders, accounting, school runs etc.
This new range had to be called Rainbow for very obvious reasons but also it turned out to be very colourful and positively summery at the end. It is now on our trade-only website www.sabivo.co.uk, ready for when life switches to a different gear.
I will be sharing the designs on our Instagram page, so if you don’t follow us on social media already, please do connect (@sabivodesign) as life after lock down might continue online for the foreseeable future.
Spring Fair opens its doors this weekend and I have many new everyday ranges to showcase. Christmas 2020 is also hot off the press. All the designs are available to order now from www.sabivo.co.uk and are also available in Welsh.
It’s this time of the year I call ‘supplier’s Christmas. I have been beavering away designing new stuff for months and I am finally ready to shout about it to the world….or that is our stockists, to be precise.
Besides letting you know about all NEW for 2020 I am inviting you to visit us at Spring Fair. The usual complimentary delivery on all show orders will run again or maybe you are after the complimentary chocolate?! Either way, I’ll be soldiering for 5 days on 2C31 and I hope to see you again or meet up if we have never done.
Over 80 NEW designs across 5 ranges would make their way to the show. The artwork and designs has been a true labour of love. There will be two new design styles with very distinctive contemporary looks. Wreath is painterly and feminine, while Hardoy is graphic and midcentury inspired. As usual, the designs are delicately hand embellished with our signature floral jewels and glitter.
All designs are up on the website now, so have a peek if you have not done yet. They are also available to order now via our secure trade-only website www.sabivo.co.uk, which is safe and easy to use. We would love to see you again on stand 2C31 but if you can’t make it to the show we could also post a paper one and a sample card or get in touch with one of our wonderful agents.
