Welcome to Sarah Loves Cards

Sarah Loves Cards

Thank you for visiting my Sarah Loves Cards website and blog. After operating as a Phoenix Trader for 13 years I was, as you can imagine, devastated when the company  ceased trading.  This was primarily due to a failed and costly expansion into the US market. Thankfully the Greeting Card Industry (Printers and Industry Experts) rallied round. They helped to breath life back into the UK operation.

On 1st February 2018 the business relaunched as Flamingo Paperie. I signed up as a Pioneer Partner so that I could continue to supply you with their fabulous products.

Like Phoenix Trading, the Flamingo Paperie business will focus on greeting cards, wrapping paper and notecards  all year round. In the Autumn/Winter Charity Christmas Cards, Advent Calendars and Advent Calendar Cards will be added to the range. Flamingo Paperie products will represent at least 90% of my product range. I will also offer you a small range of complimentary products under my umbrella company Sarah Loves Cards.

I will continue to fly the flag for British design. My entire range will have been designed and manufactured in the UK using UK sourced, environmentally accredited materials.

Goodbye Phoenix Trading, Hello Sarah Loves Cards

Goodbye Phoenix Trading

I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news! As of the end of this month, Phoenix Trading will no longer exist. The company, in fact, ceased trading on Tuesday 15th August due to financial difficulties. Head office will, however,  remain open for a couple more weeks whilst staff despatch the final orders and tie up loose ends.

Unfortunately the demise of Phoenix Trading means that I can no longer operate as an Independent Phoenix Trader. I’ve been very lucky to have been a distributor with this great company for over 12 years. I have met some wonderful people and have made good friends along the way.

Thank Ewe Greeting Card

I’d like to thank all of my loyal friends and customers for supporting my little card business.

I have always loved the company’s ethos and the fact that all of its products were designed and printed in the UK. The wood was sourced from the Scottish managed forests. Every card could be traced back to the tree that it came from. My goal for my own company is to stick to this ethos.

Most noteworthy is the fact that Phoenix Trading has done so much good. Over the years it has donated in excess of £2 million to charitable causes , through its charitable trust The Phoenix International Charity. It is unclear at the moment whether The Phoenix International Charity will continue.Sarah Loves Cards Championing British Art and Design

Hello SarahLovesCards :

So what now I hear you ask? Well, I am delighted to confirm that my own business SarahLovesCards will continue to operate. I have purchased a large stock of Phoenix Trading products. Customers can, therefore, continue to purchase Phoenix cards from me for the foreseeable future. I also plan to retail cards and paper stationery from other British companies with a similar ethos to Phoenix. All of the products that I stock will match the quality of Phoenix Cards and will offer the same good value for money.

Hopefully, over the next few months we will see a new Phoenix rising from the ashes. If it does, I will supply their products too.

I will keep you posted as my new business unfolds. The first step in the relaunch of my new business has been the unveiling of this fabulous new logo above, designed by Indigo Fox.

My website design will gradually change as well as the new business unfolds. It’s a case of “watch this space”. In the meantime, if you need to restock your card draw, please contact me via this link to my Facebook Business Page.
