Flamingo Paperie Still in Business despite Coronavirus

To our wonderful Customers

Our hearts go out to everyone in these uncertain times but especially to any of you who have been impacted by the coronavirus. If you are sick, we wish you a speedy recovery. If you are a nurse, teacher, or other key worker who is on the front line, we salute you and say thank you for the sacrifice that you are making to support our communities.

Still open for Business during the Coronavirus

We are pleased to say that we remain open for business. It is the Government’s express wish that online businesses keep going.
As you know, our business operates through our network of Flamingo Paperie Partners of which I am one. You will usually find me out and about in the local community at events and at Pop-up Shops held in customers’ homes. These activities have been understandably curtailed. You can still access our wonderful Flamingo Paperie range, however, here online via my website.

Coronavirus Safeguards and Working Practices

Social Distance ImageFlamingo Paperie’s directors, our customer service, finance, design, IT and marketing support teams are all working remotely so we foresee no circumstances where they will not be in a position to keep the main functions of the business operational.

As you would expect, the directors have been consulting with our warehouse and distribution partners. They have assured us that they are 100 % committed to continuity of service. They are taking all the necessary precautions to safeguard staff who do not need to remain at home. This means that, for the foreseeable future (as far as that goes in this fast-moving situation), we will be able to continue to send out your order. However, please be aware that we have less staff  to pick and pack your order. Delivery companies are also facing unprecedented demand so DELIVERY WILL TAKE LONGER THAN USUAL. Please bear with us.

Online shopping is about as safe as it can be and, until we hear otherwise, we are guided by the Royal Mail’s statement below:
Public Health England (PHE) has advised that people receiving parcels are not at risk of contracting the coronavirus. We know from experience with other coronaviruses,  that these types of viruses don’t survive long on objects, such as letters or parcels. This complements the highly publicised guidance from PHE for people to wash their hands more often than usual using soap and hot water.

I am asking my customers to quarantine all parcels for 24 hours after receipt as an additional safeguard against the coronavirus

Send a Card, Deliver a Smile

Sending A Smile image

There has never been a better time to sit down and write a letter or send a card to friends and loved ones. We also have a superb range of craft kits that will keep you and others amused for hours and hours! It’s worth having a look at our colour-in paper tablecloth too.

Thank you for your Custom and Support

All of us here at Flamingo Paperie wish you well and thank you so much for your continued custom.

Take care and keep safe.
