Featured In The Leicestershire Christmas Gift Guide

Whoever knows me is aware that I love PR and I am glad to hear that journalists love chatters like me. Above all, they like what I do, i.e. designing beautiful greeting cards, which any designer with tell you that is one the biggest thrills in the Universe.

I was chuffed to bits to get a request for product placement from an editor at More Magazine, the weekly supplement of Leicester Mercury, which is the biggest newspaper in Leicester. The editor was collating products to feature in the Christmas Gift Guide and they all had to be made in Leicester.  She choose this lovely owl handmade greeting card from us. It is fare to say that it is one of our best sellers.

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.
