NEW Designs for Autumn

As the wind is literally sweeping us around (there is a tornado tail scenario going on in real life) we thought is a timely manner to update with the newness available this Autumn.

We have recently returned from a very successful Autumn Fair and we are still buzzing. Lots of Christmas cards have been sent and we had a great reception to all new designs added to our best selling ranges Bijoux, Fly and Lucid. We have also added some Spring Season newness, so why not head towards our website and have a browse.

All ranges are free to view, but if you are a trade customer, we would encourage you to sign up and see our competitive prices. We are happy to send complimentary samples too, so you could see the cards in the flesh. If you feel your customers would love our cards, please give us a call and let us add value to your company.

Happy browsing,

See you at Autumn Fair

Autumn Fair is another ‘first time’ trade show for us this year. We will be at NEC, Birmingham from 04-07 September 2016.

For those who have never visited the show, it is a show to mark ‘near end’ of the trade buying season. It is a great opportunity for retailers to do last minute stock up on gifts and cards before the all important Christmas season.

We will be launching new seasonal ranges with never seen before designs, all based on the ever popular everyday range Bijoux. If you have not had the chance to view the range in person, please come along, you won’t be disappointed.  Selected best-selling designs from other successful everyday ranges will be on show too.

Bijoux Christmas is not your average ‘red and glitter’ greeting card. It is elegant, glamorous and understated as it’s illustrations are monochrome and accentuated with gold paint, pink neon love hearts, unique cup floral jewels and organza bows.

Due to the success of the everyday Bijoux range we have added Bijoux Spring. With abundance of flowers, birds and lots Spring Season symbols, there’s surely something for everybody at Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and Easter.

We proudly hand-illustrate, print and hand-finish our cards in England. Our FSC approved boards are from England and Italy and we pack our cards with envelopes from Yorkshire.

We would like to invite you to visit us on stand 4D26 to view the new ranges and take advantage of our show offer, which free delivery on all orders placed at the show. If you can’t make it, please get in touch for your trade catalogue and complimentary card .

See you at the show.

Why Send Your Christmas Cards On Festive Friday?

I know there are ready meals but I still prefer to cook using fresh ingredients and go to the restaurant for special occasions. The affordable wine we drink in weekdays gives me no pleasure in comparison to the good ones we have saved for the weekend (and surely more expensive). So, despite the fact that we all have smartphones nowadays, the accessibility of information diminishes the special moment of greetings. We receive texts, Facebook messages, tweets, instagrams, pins…no end. This might be the reason you could start sending real, paper Christmas cards. The recipient will love it, guaranteed!

To honour that, Festive Friday is in its 2nd year. It is an annual initiative organised by the Greeting Card Association. It is a very simple idea. Dedicate an hour (or two) to writing and sending personal Christmas cards and get the Christmas sending season started.

It was reported that last year’s event was a huge success with thousands of Christmas cards being sent and going through the letterboxes in the first week of December encouraging the whole country to get in the festive card-sending mood.

It has been proven that receiving greeting cards is good for your health and wellbeing. It also adds enormous value to your family history and is a wonderful keepsake for generations to come.

If you are a retailer Festive Friday  has downloadable versions of the poster and flyers, which you can add to your website or Facebook page to spread awareness and encourage your customers to send Christmas cards along.

This year I have enjoyed designing SABIVO Design’s first Christmas collection, Twinkle. Some of the top-sellers are naturally for:

Mum Handmade Greeting Card Snowflakes, Reindeer & Love Heart  T01 Mum Christmas Handmade Greeting Card SABIVO Design800

Dad Handmade Greeting Card Stars, Reindeer & Snowflakes

Daughter Handmade Greeting Card Foxes & Presents  T09 Daughter Christmas Handmade Greeting Card SABIVO Design800

Sister Handmade Greeting Card Owls &Present

You can view the whole Twinkle range here and selected designs are available to purchase from our website. I hope this post has inspired you to send Christmas cards this season….even if it is just one, it is still a start. A good one!

Best wishes,
