Card Connection is at the Cutting Edge of Design

Leading greeting card publisher and franchisor, Card Connection has today announced the launch of its new hand crafted, laser cut greeting card. The brand new release has been created by Card Connection’s dedicated in-house design department and will join the popular Tall Handmade format, which features some of the Company’s best selling handmade designs.

"The laser cut style offers a unique look within our range that really has ‘stand out’ appeal for that extra special purchase such as a wedding or anniversary or a special someone’s birthday," confirms Courtenay. “Our network of franchisees will now supply the new design to retailers throughout the UK and we anticipate good take up from this exclusive new Card Connection product."

Michael Johnson, managing director, Card Connection, comments:  "Our whole ethos is to support our franchisees both nationwide and individually, to enable them to run profitable businesses and one key to that is the unparalleled depth and quality of our range. As a result, our proven business model has enabled hundreds of franchisees to run successful businesses over the past two decades as we continue to lead the way in the UK franchised distribution of greetings cards."

Card Connection’s unique model of consignment sales has resulted in a strong brand and established reputation which has been proven over many years. Through its franchisees Card Connection supplies around 13,000 retailers throughout the UK and Ireland.

Card Connection is part of UK Greetings, which is a subsidiary of American Greetings Inc., one of the largest greeting card publishers in the world and has limited vacancies for franchisees that are keen to run an expanding business. Since the franchise network in the UK 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 £7k + Stock + Card Connection fee with earnings potential in excess of £50k per annum.
