Just departed with our ad-free years and seen our 1st ever ad in Greetings Today Magazine. They have been fab at supporting us from day 1 and their patience has paid off – literally Thank you so much, guys!
As for us, you’ll need a cup of tee to go through all the info in the ad or log in to our trade-only website for more www.sabivo.co.uk
There’s a little treat for all July orders, so flick through the magazine for the promo code and Happy shopping!
We are delighted to announce the addition of 10 NEW designs to our best-selling Bijoux range. The range has now been updated with glitter for extra sparkle and we have lost the bows for more contemporary look.
For those who plan their Christmas selection early, we have added family captions to our glittery Christmas 2018 range, all available to order now.
To check all lovely newness please get in touch and we are happy to send a paper catalogue and a sample card if you feel you would like to see them in the flesh.
We are delighted to announce that our NEW trade website is live now. To celebrate the launch we have an amazing launch offer and prize and a mailer was sent out last week.
The website allows our lovely trade customers to browse and order from all collections available. They can also download the e-catalogue in a magazine style fashion and the chat option gives an instant contact, should they need to discuss anything with us.
Some of the NEW designs we are launching at Spring Fair in February 2018 are available now in ranges Lucid and Fly.
Male cards are notoriously difficult to design, so it was such a lovely news for us that our recently released male range Great Times just flew off the shelves…both ours and of our great retail customers.
So, I have been very busy designing some additions to that range and we have now released more than 40 NEW designs. Plenty of bold black typography and copper metallic keep the range fresh, on trend and striking. The designs cover milestone birthdays, family relations, additional open birthdays and open caption ‘Dad’ cards.
Naturally, all our cards are designed and manufactured in England.
Our retail customers get a sneak peek with our newsletter updates. If you are new to us and think your customers would love our cards, please make sure you get in touch. If require paper catalogue and a sample card, just let us know and we will be happy to send one.
Creatively, Christmas is one of the most difficult ranges to do. It is probably because it has been done over and over again but is also the one where experimenting is most restricted. People like traditional designs. What is a Christmas card without robin, Santa, snow, presents etc. Would you buy a Christmas card in pink, blue and yellow or would it be in green, red with gold and glitter?! The answer is that you might experiment with the colours but my wild guess is majority of people will buy the latter.
Christmas is also one of the most commercially justifiable worth spending time on design collections. Would there be a gift store, boutique, garden centre without a Christmas card selection?! Probably not. So, roll up your sleeves and get to designing lovely ranges.
This year, I have built on the success of my Fly range and decided to expand into Christmas. I have birds, birds, birds. As usual, I have experimented with ‘safe’ and with ‘wild’ designs. Some I know will sell well, others I think are a bit of a risk. However, they all help me understand my customers, old and new, so I can continue to create better greeting cards.
This blog post has just a tiny selection of what retailers have been ordering since February. They will be available for retail customers from August. Hope you like them and some of our cards are enjoyed by your loved ones.
