Card Connection Franchisees Have Spring in Their Step with New Santé Design

Leading greeting card publisher and franchisor, Card Connection, has today announced the launch of its new 2012 Santé and Santé Gesture designs. With spring on the way, the well-timed Santé blank designs are all photographic, incorporating a mixture of wildlife and floral imagery.

Card Connections Franchise Opportunity“The new photographic cards feature perky pigs and cheerful tulips,” confirms Kelly Courtenay, senior creative manager, Card Connection. Other designs featuring a pair of elephants in the wild, a cute mouse and some adorable ducklings are sure to give our franchisees a spring in their step as they deliver these premium cards to retailers across the UK.

“In addition, we are also releasing three Santé Gesture designs all with birthday captions and various finishes, including scenic a harbour view, a quirky lettering design and some ‘on trend’ pattern” continues Courtenay. “The harbour view, is a soft scenic boating scene which employs an emboss finish to create a framed border as used in other art-based Gesture designs. In contrast, a deboss finish is used to create a print-press effect on a broad, bright and fun text design. Lastly, delicate flitter details offer a bit of sparkle to a lovely, rich contemporary floral design.”

Card Connection is part of UK Greetings, the largest publicly owned greeting card publisher in the world and has limited vacancies for franchisees who are keen to run an expanding business. Successful candidates would ideally have some management experience as, once established, they would be expected to employ a small team, operate a warehouse and have several liveried vans on the road.

Because the franchise networks in the UK and Ireland are complete, the available opportunities now consist of acquiring an already-established territory from an existing franchisee. These vary in price according to their level of development, but start at £20,000 (+ stock) with earnings potential in excess of £50K per annum.
