Card Connection’s onto a Winner with New Football Cards

Leading greeting card publisher and franchisor, Card Connection, has today announced the launch of a range of new birthday football themed cards.

“We have new card releases every week, all created by our dedicated in-house design team,” confirms Michael Johnson, Managing Director, Card Connection.  “However, we are particularly excited about the new football range and anticipate they will be a real winner with our customers, which will be great news for our valued retail clients and our franchisees alike.”
The new designs come out hot on the heels of a recent launch of a colourful official Gaelic Athletics Association (GAA) licenced birthday cards also launched by Card Connection.  Both ranges will now allow customers to send cards featuring the teams of their nearest and dearest. 
Card Connection’s cards are supplied to retailers by the Company’s team of franchisees, using a proven system to place quality greeting cards and gifts in retail outlets on a ‘consignment’ basis.  This means the stock and display equipment are installed on free loan to the retailer.  This is one step beyond ‘sale or return’ as Card Connection customers never have to buy the stock initially, only paying for what they sell. 
Card Connection’s award winning merchandising service provided by local franchisees has proved popular with retailers all over the UK and Ireland including Card Connection’s key National Accounts such as Spar, Nisa, Supervalu, Centra, Costcutter, Mace, Londis, Total, Shell.
Card Connection is part of UK Greetings, which is a subsidiary of the largest publicly owned greeting card publisher in the world and has limited vacancies for franchisees who are keen to run an expanding business. Suitable candidates would ideally have some management experience as, once established, and depending on the size of the territory, they could be expected to employ a small team, operate a small warehouse and have several liveried vans on the road.  
Since the franchise network in the UK and Ireland is 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 £20k (+stock) with earnings potential in excess of £50k per annum.
