Iconic Greeting Cards and Gift Cards


Approaching a ‘certain age’ in successful careers across design and marketing, Paul and Bryan, who had been friends and collaborators on projects for some time, had no intention of retiring. Instead, they saw that particular milestone as an opportunity for a change of direction…


Having sweated over the ideas, design, colour palettes and finer details of our cards, we have to make sure they are produced to our exacting (some call it ‘picky’) standards…

After an exhaustive search and a few trials we found a real gem of a printing company that was founded in 1827 and remains in the same family to this day. They’ve kept abreast of the latest technology and do all the things that you’d expect from an environmentally responsible printer. For starters, their latest printing press is carbon neutral and all paper is sourced from sustainable and managed sources. Their attention to detail and vibrantly colourful printing are vital ingredients in the production of an Iconic card.
