Heaven Forbid!

We weren’t expecting adding a shop for individual purchases to be quite as complicated as it appears to be, but oh well. Links have stopped linking, images have changed shape, size and location, and we have a new behind-the-scenes dashboard that looks like the flightdeck of the Starship Enterprise. And not a manual in sight! But worry not, we will have things (star)shipshape and Bristol fashion again in no time, and when we finally exit the black hole we’ll have a lovely new purchasing portal for you to peruse at leisure. Exciting times ahead then!

In the meantime, don’t forget that individual purchases can also be made from our Etsy store. With several bright new ranges well on their way to hitting the shelves we’re sure to have all your greetings needs well covered.

To Market, to Market

Much time, thought, planning, investment, hope, and preparation – plus significant quantities of Velcro and the odd swear word – went into the modestly proportioned stand at our first ever trade fair recently. Progressive Greetings Live at London’s Business Design Centre was a real buzz and a great learning experience. We made delightful contacts and now we are busy following up some exciting opportunities. And designing more new cards, of course. Enquiries are welcomed from card retailers looking for something a little different from the mainstream trends.

National Stationery Week

Apparently, this has been designated National Stationery Week. Some of us delight secretly in notebooks, pencils, and – deepest joy – fine liner pens 52 weeks of the year. This week we celebrate officially the joys of paper and writing on it.

Here in the UK letter-writing may have fallen into a steep decline, but we still send greeting cards. Who doesn’t love receiving a hand-written message from someone special? And why wait for a significant occasion? Sometimes it means more to get in touch “just because”.
