Our mission is to help foster relationships through cards. We design cards that look for the positive things in life and in people. Therefore, we don’t make cards that are crass or that ridicule people or would embarrass someone if the card were put on a mantelpiece.
Greeting cards are one of those things that people buy and then give away. We like to think of that when are designing cards. We also envisage the card’s eventual home – often put on display on a mantelpiece, or a side table, or a cabinet. So we design greeting cards that look good close up and that also catch the eye ‘across a crowded room’, to borrow a phrase.
We have both lived and worked in different countries. We love nature: you will see that interest reflected in the animals, birds, and flowers that feature in our cards. We are also committed to help nature and the natural environment.
We are based in Cambridge, and the view in this photo is a view from one of the bridges over the river Cam looking onto the Backs of the Colleges of Cambridge University. It is one of our favourite stopping places on long walks.
