We caught up with Luna, the winner of the ‘On the Cards’ competition to ask her where she gets the inspiration for the ‘weird little children’ she designs. Her Herby Friends cards that are stocked in our flagship stores and online include seeds so that you can grow your own, at home! … INTERVIEW WITH ‘ON THE CARDS’ WINNER LUNA PASZKIEWICZ
We all know getting a message on social media saying HBD just isn’t the same as receiving a witty card. For Mark at Brainbox Candy, the ruder the better. The Power of The Card is that you can bring a little giggle to anyone at any time of day. Sending a gif of a grumpy bunny is cute and all, but sometimes you’ve got to think outside the hutch.
Q: Is there anything better than getting home from a long day to see a stamped card with your name on it lying on your mat?
A: There being an animal on it 🐶
Katie’s cards sum up the ‘Birthday grumpy but funny’ category perfectly – made for anyone who likes to grumble about not celebrating another year of their existence.
We asked Katie Abey about the Power of the Card in her experience and how receiving a personal message from someone you love can really turn a bad day on its head and make you feel all twinkly.
The art of gift and card giving is founded on the basis of celebration. Everyone should feel represented on each occasion they choose to celebrate, but unfortunately, at times that isn’t the case. Kitsch Noir founder, Cherelle Brown, tells us about the shortage of cards in the industry that represent people of colour, and how she initiated change by building a brand that caters to everyone.
We all know Jack Fincham loves pens, but what are his other stationery picks?

Balls! We love them and what a great way to start our round up of our Top 10 Festival Essentials! If you’re going to take a beach ball to a festival, then always make it a watermelon one! Plus, who doesn’t want to say ‘I carried a watermelon?’ Oh yes Baby.

Ah, Mother’s Day! You’ve got the gift, you’ve chosen the card and you’ve picked out the wrapping paper, but somehow… it just doesn’t feel personal enough. Fear not, we’ve got a nifty idea which you can make for Mummy Dearest and it involves the art of quilling.
It’s Love Week We’ve teamed up with our friends at Lindt to create the perfect love story. The marriage between a cute bear and a huge love of chocolate.
We don’t know about you, but we’ve tried every productivity app going and our hand always reaches out for a pen to write a list on paper.
We’ve shown you how to jazz up a gift box and now we’re going to show you how to make your gift bag more fancy… as if it wasn’t fancy enough… right?!!

Using our customer favourite Kraft wrapping paper (you might know it better as brown parcel wrap) and white and black inks.
