Spring Fair is just around the corner and we will be launching 60 new designs at the weekend. It is the biggest trade show in the UK and hosts 300000 products from 3000 exhibitors and 64000 visitors attend it every Spring. It is where the planning for the year ahead happens.
We will be showcasing never seen before designs from three different ranges. First one is our new range Cockatoo, which we have been delighted to have been featured in Progressive Greetings. page 119. We are tapping on the tropical trend and it features parrots, flamingos, cocktails and tropical flowers and has true summer feel. The first 20 designs are across everyday and popular occasion captions. All designs are hand-illustrated and hand-finished with cup flower jewels and polka dot bows. We proudly design and hand-finish our cards here in England. The cards are 145 mm square and wrapped in rib craft envelopes and cello bags.
Then, we have our glamorous and chic range Bijoux. The monochrome line work features hand-illustrated elegant designs of fashion shoes, posh teacups, champagne flutes. The artwork is accentuated with gold paint and hand-finished with colourful cup flower jewels and organza bows. The 20 designs are across everyday and popular occasion captions. All cards are competitively priced to delight your customers. The cards are 145 mm square and individually wrapped in gold envelopes and cello bags.
And at last, we have expanded our popular Garden range with 20 new everyday and occasion captions, featuring chicken, sheep, birds and abundance of colourful garden blooms. All designs are hand-illustrated and hand-finished with cup flower jewels and polka dot bows. The cards are 145 mm square, wrapped in rib craft envelopes and cello bags.
We have undergone the mighty task to totally revamp our product shots and the catalogue. As such, more that 250+ designs have been re-shot and re-touched and we are really pleased with the result. You can download the ranges when you click here and if you require trade prices or paper catalogues and a sample, please get in touch.
We would also like to invite you to visit us at Spring Fair so you can see the cards in the flesh and there would be all best-sellers too. So, if you are at the show come and see us on stand 3W18. If anything, we will have chocolate to top up your sugar levels and keep you going those long miles at the NEC.
We look forward meeting you and doing business with you.
We are truly delighted to have been featured in the New Spring Fair 2016 Product Focus Magazine with one of our best-selling Christmas cards. As an editorial piece, this is a testament for the level of design work and its commercial appeal we have achieved over the past year.

Our NEW Christmas range ‘Patterns’ has 24 designs to cover the most popular family relations and some open greetings designs.
Our contemporary cards are designed, printed and hand-finished, right here in the UK and combine hand-lettering with quirky illustrations. We have combined traditional watercolour and gouache drawings with computer line drawing and incorporated some Nordic patterns across all designs to give you something really fresh and original. For extra festive sparkle, we have hand-finished our cards with polka dot cotton bows, silver snowflakes, cup flowers and 3D star jewels.
The cards are 145 mm square, and wrapped in red envelopes. To view the full range please go to our trade section or click here. You can also view our 2014 Christmas range which was a huge success for us and we are delighted to be still manufacturing it.

Christmas may be truly over but we still would like to share with you one of our latest features.
It was on Card and gift network, run by wonderful Charlotte Biggs and the feature was for special relations Christmas greeting cards, many of which were handmade, just like what we do. If you are an artist or a small business in the card and gift trade, it is worth considering joining Charlotte’s mailing list as she collates information for regular blog posts. The could be a great PR opportunity for you and the chance to get exposure to a new audience, absolutely free.
We were delighted how our Christmas range Twinkle sold this year both at the lovely shops we supply throughout UK and in mainland Europe and also with private customers, just like you. We wrote personalised cards, sent love letters, rushed super quick next day deliveries and on Christmas day SABIVO Design cards were opened across UK as well as in USA, Canada, Portugal, Bulgaria, Sweden and Denmark.
It is such a wonderful feeling to hear that you have found us on social media or simply by web search and love what we do. Many of you sent lovely testimonials, which we are most obliged to receive and are left at either the Etsy store, our Facebook page or Twitter. If you, the reader of this post, have received one of our cards and have a precious minute to share, please let us know how receiving one of our cards made you feel.
Thank you so much!
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.
Here is the feature in the magazine that was out at the weekend.
Since then we have been sending lots of Christmas cards and if you like what we do, there is still time to get your special cards before Christmas. Just go to www.sabivo.co.uk and have a good browse around.
