Chrsitmas 2018

This year we've had our Christmas cards printed on a different card stock.

We've gone for Matte Recycled 350gsm which is a bright white uncoated recycled card stock. It has a light texture on the printed side and offers superb print quality with a matte finish (They're gorgeous!).

This card is produced using 100% recycled post consumer waste. It is pH neutral and is both FSC, and Long life certified. Have a little look...

We've just had some more eyecatching linocut designs printed, this time they're masquerading as building blocks which spell out your greeting in bold primary colours. They're printed on that lovely textured card-stock you've told us you like so much too!

Ladders Club seminar

I am very excited to be attending my first Ladder Club seminarThis link opens in an new browser window (organised by PG Buzz and the Greeting Card Association) in a couple of weeks time!

The day is especially tailored for new card publishers like me with a chocka block full itinerary of guest speakers from around the world and across the business sector, from agents and distributors to established publishers and retailers. The more I delve into this world, the more I realise there is to learn, but it's worth the effort!

I expect my head will be full to bursting with inspiration and ideas by the end of the day, it's a good job I've got a new pad to write all my notes in! :)
