WHAT DO YOU DO EXACTLY?
‘Curious Pencil Cards’ is an award winning greeting card publisher, who tell stories through each card design. We keep it fresh and authentic all designs are pencil-drawn in-house. We allow the ‘pencil’ to roam the page and be ‘curious’ in all that it does creating memorable, touching messages for all occasions.
We have a packed portfolio of designs currently selling to retailers across the UK. We now have an exciting new platform creating bespoke for corporates to keep the customer/staff emotionally connected and loyal to the company.
Each card is supplied individually cello-wrapped with a gummed envelope, on 350gsm Ariteno Silkweave card. We are FSC friendly, we use paper from responsible sources.
BUT WHAT’S THE POINT?
Our aim is to connect people in an otherwise disconnected world. Do you remember how it felt when your grandma put that £5 note in your back pocket? or when you swallowed that cool iced water on the hottest day of the year? That is exactly our point – We love to draw smiles on faces. It’s simple, send a card to someone even when they least expect it and watch their facial expression lighten up, lifting the world up one person at a time. Together let’s share and remember.
“Each card is a crunchy red apple on a coconut tree handpicked for you.”
