Connect To Your Customer’s Emotions
With Bespoke Corporate Greeting Cards.

Our key benefits...

Many studies have proven that customer emotional connection is key to customer retention. Our greeting cards are created specifically for your company to connect with your customer's emotions. We use the best quality textured card, bespoke artwork and strategic wording for your customers to feel appreciated and loyal to your company.
We pride our selves in creating quality, hand-illustrated greeting cards, which have a long-lasting impact on your customers. This is because, with a short hand-written note inside, it lets the customer know, you have taken the time and effort, to show you truly care. For great customer experience, a personal touch is essential and a small gesture goes a very long way.
Curious Pencil
With your customer likely to display the card on their mantelpiece in their home, goes beyond just another corporate gift, it is a constant reminder of your service to your customer, and a conversation starter to friends and family who may see it displayed. With the rise of social media, we have become a sharing nation, so give your customer something to share with the world.
We have become a digital world, and the need to stand out has become more intense. Rather than having an automated email, standardised letter or a forgettable phone call, it is important to stand out and be memorable. For the short moment it takes to write a card, it has an on-going impact on the customer experience keeping them a fan and loyal to you.

the Options...

Option one is the most popular choice, as it is more personal to the customer. This option is also the most cost effective. We deliver the batch of cards to your specified office(s), where you will be in control of handing/delivering the card to your customer. This gives room for you or your staff to write out an appropriate message personalised to the individual customer. Although, if preferred, we can also include a generic prewritten message. 


Option two puts the logistics into our hands and is the most seamless process. All cards will be personalised with names and addresses in a handwritten font and delivered directly to individual addresses. This is ideal for companies who plan to send batch cards on a regular basis or those who do not see their customers face-to-face. Our processes adhere to latest GDPR regulations and no data is stored used for print job only. (For more information on data please see FAQs.)

the Process...

Step 1 Tell Us Your Vision

To start, we have a design consultation to discuss your brief and where you would like the cards to be placed strategically in the customer journey. Once we have had the design consultation and we have a clear understanding of what you require, we can provide you with an accurate quotation. 

Step 2 Our Creative Process

Once satisfied, we will ask for a deposit to begin the design process. Our designs will be formulated based on the consultation, any branding specifications and your company profile research. This is the time for us to get creative, we will stick closely to your style and brief and keep you informed from draft stage to finished proof, to assure you’re happy with the design(s).

Step 3 Print & Delivery

Once you have approved the final design, we will begin the printing and delivery process (depending which option you chose).

For repeat orders we skip straight to Step 3.
