With every year that passes our Christmas card list grows. We vary from the super organised with spreadsheets and sticky address labels to the completely disorganised, always needing to panic buy first class stamps. Or perhaps your list lives in a faithful old address book that comes out every year, fat with addresses now scribbled on loose pages and held together with tape and a few rubber bands.
What most of us do have in common is a select group on our Christmas card list who deserve something a bit special. The friends and family that make you smile as you write the cards, the ones where you know the address by heart or that you give in person.
Buy a few extra special cards for your loved ones this Christmas along with your usual charity cards or boxes of 100! We have hundreds of talented artists, photographers and card makers at Folksy and Christmas is most definitely their favourite time of year. There’s something really exciting about buying direct from the artist and knowing they receive all but 5% of the cost makes it a great way to support our UK artists. We’ve selected just a few, but head over to www.folksy.com to take a look yourself and pick up a card that will stand out from the crowd – arty, 3d, funny, retro we have them all.
Don’t forget to check the 2010 last posting dates for Christmas cards and remember that we are also host to thousands of fabulous UK craft shops at www.folksy.com One stop Christmas shopping for unique gifts that people will remember!
