Greetings Cards

The sending and receiving of cards is an important part of British culture. No other country has such a tradition of card sending. Most people in the UK display the cards they receive for their birthday or Christmas in their home.

The UK card industry is acknowledged to be the largest in the world and ten years ahead of the rest of the world in terms of design. Nigel Quiney is highly regarded in the industry for their high-quality printed greetings cards.
