It’s Be-Ginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas !!

Gin themed Christmas card

A Big Thank You to Our Suppliers

Launching this year’s Flamingo Paperie Christmas Range has been no mean feat! Many high street retailers have pulled their production back into the UK which has caused supply issues. We have also had staffing issues at the warehouse caused by illness and Covid-19 restrictions. Despite these difficulties the Directors at Flamingo Paperie have produced one of our best Christmas ranges yet. UK printers have rewarded our loyalty to the British Print Industry and have prioritised our production.

Exclusive Range of Quirky British Designs

Our 2021 Christmas offering is made up of 24 NEW Charity Christmas Card designs, all available in packs of 8 cards, as well as many of the old favourites. There are also 33 NEW Christmas Accessories : 3 new advent calendars, 3 new advent calendar cards, 4 new wrapping paper designs with matching tags, 2 new 3D single cards and 2 special pop-out, dressing up single cards. To keep the children entertained we have produced 6 new colour-in Christmas products. We have also launched 3 delightful new bunting designs, 2 thank you notecard packs and 3 sets of five mini-boxes. Plus a new money wallet design for sending monetary gifts.

Best Selling Christmas Cards so Far!

Four designs are proving to be front runners, some of which have already necessitated a reprint. As predicted, our cute and quirky 6 x 6″ Highland Cows (in the snow) design by artist Tim Mason (code XC152) is our best seller.

Last year’s popular 3 x 8″ Dog Line Up design by artist Karen Tye-Bentley (code XC133) continues to be a firm favourite this year.

Not surprisingly this 5 x 7″ gin themed design ‘Be(gin)ning to Look a Lot Like Christmas’ by artist Clare Mcelfatrick (code XC159) is already out of stock.  ‘Flittered’ for extra sparkly wonderfulness, this card is currently being reprinted. We hope to have it back on our website by the 2nd November.

Gin Christmas Card Design

Our other front runner, also by artist Tim Mason, is this  beautiful 5 x 7″ Mistletoe Tree design with a beautiful olive background. It glitters with sparkly eco-flitter too. Absolutely gorgeous if you’re looking for something slightly more traditional (code : XC129). We have also used the same design on a thankyou note card pack (code XN008).

Mistletoe Tree Christmas Card Design

Last year these three pop-out single card designs turned out to be so popular that we have introduced two new ones : XC163 Madonna and Child  and XC162 Penguin.

Pop Out Card DesignsNew Pop Out Card Designs

We have also launched two new Diamond-Shaped 3-D single card designs this year: 5 x 7″ XC164 Nativity by artist Kate Garrett and 5 x 7″ XC165 Buckingham Palace by best-selling artist Amanda Loverseed.

All of these single card designs form part of our multi-buy offer at just £2 each or £1.60 each if you buy 10 or more single cards. The offer applies to both our everyday and Christmas single card range. Excellent value!

New Summer 2021 Card Designs from Flamingo Paperie

Following three spectacular months of sales, the Directors at Flamingo Paperie are keen to keep all of our new found customers and our thousands of existing loyal customers on board with a fabulous range of 60+ new designs.

Designs for Men

The Directors listened to our request for more male card designs and tasked our artists to come up with an offering that would cover men of all ages. Here’s just a small selection of them.

Brand New Summer Supplement

Flamingo Paperie Summer 2021 Supplement Cover

I love the beautifully Summery cover of our new product supplement. The image has been uplifted from artist Laura Stone’s new card design ‘Bright Flowers (Happy Birthday)’ Code FP6243.

A couple of my favourites

I particularly like these two majestic and beautifully foiled 6 x 6″ card designs by artist Di Brookes : FP6241 Peacock and FP6241 Tropical Foliage.

New 3D Design Trial

Our Creative Director and Founder Robin Bradley is also keen to try out a new 3D card concept. We are trialling two designs : Father’s Day FP7080 features silver foil and extra stuck-on detail.  Our gorgeous Beautiful Birthday Wishes FP7083 card design also has mounted 3D-effect detailing. Two tiny real (ish) diamonds enhance the design and take it to a whole new level of gorgeousness!

Something A Little Different

And to finish my mini selection, how about something completely different. A fun birthday card design, again by artist Di Brookes. Guinea Pigs are the latest craze you know!

New Range of Spring 2021 Product from Flamingo Paperie

New Season New Range

Spring is, without doubt, my favourite time of year. To celebrate this wonderful season we have published a  New Product Supplement.

Flamingo Paperie Spring 2021 Supplement

There are 39 brand new greeting card designs, 2 new gift wrap and tag designs and a range of fabulous new A5 and A6 notebooks. You can flick through the new supplement by clicking on this link. If you would prefer a paper copy of it simply email your address details to SARAH.L.GIFFORD@GMAIL.COM.

Some of My New Favourites

Spring is well and truly upon us heralding new life and regeneration. Our garden in East Dorset is now bursting with life. Swathes of daffodils have sprung up to replace the fading snowdrops. Tulips are coming into bud and our Star Magnolia, the first tree in our garden to flower each year, has just opened its first flower.

I have selected this gorgeous matt textured and flittered Cottage Garden 6×6″ greeting card design (code FP6222) by artist Lucy Grossmith as my favourite of the new card designs. For me, it’s total escapism! The cottage reminds me of my grandparents house where I spent two weeks every Summer as a child. Their house used to be the old saddler’s cottage in the village. Unlike this design the front garden was just lawn. It had a fabulous vegetable and flower garden at the rear teaming with butterflies and bees during the Summer months.

Another of my favourites is this beautifully vibrant matt textured and foiled 6 x 6″ Wild (Happy Birthday) design (code: FP6233) by artist Chester Bentley. The photograph doesn’t do it justice, however, as you can’t see the opulence of the foiling.

Wild (Happy Birthday) Flamingo Paperie Card design

The two new gift wrap and tag designs are completely different to each other but both lovely in their own right. Both designs are printed on matt-finished 120gsm paper and have a cutting guide on the back. The wrap dimensions are 50cm x 70cm and retail at £1.50. There are also matching packs of five trendy luggage-style tags with raffia ties for £2 per pack.

Calling all Notebook Lovers!

As a paper stationery addict I have always been unable to resist a notebook. The Directors have answered my wishes by launching a range of ten gorgeous new notebooks in five different designs. Each of these designs is available in A5 and A6 sizes. Their quality is impeccable with harmonising colours on the inside covers, gold foil detailing and a generous 96 lined pages inside. The A5 notebooks are £6 each whilst the A6 versions are £3 each.

New Flamingo Paperie Notebook Designs

Each new notebook design has a matching card. A matching A5 and A6 notebook combo with its matching card design would make an excellent present for any notebook loving family and friends. Personally I’m partial to the sheep design myself. Which one do you prefer?
