Although they were out and published some time ago now, these are still one of my recent favourite works: a collection of 8 square designs and patterns for small sized (12x12cm) contemporary greetings cards, with a modern boutique feel. They’ve been printed on uncoated board, with accents and details of gold foil, they’ve been die cut shaped, embossed, and all come with matching patterned envelopes.
Exclusive to Marks & Spencer UK & Ireland (marksandspencer.com – although not seen them online) Most have an interactive element to play with, and they’re tactile, bright and suitable for all kinds of occasions (what you’d call an open send)
