Some of My Favourite New Flamingo Paperie Designs!

Such a cute design for young pony lovers this 6×6 matt textured design by artist Tim Mason reminds me of The Moomins, one of my favourite childhood cartoons.

These 6×6 matt textured and embossed Bunny designs by  artist Mikki Butterley are ideal for a young baby or toddler’s birthday.

Blue Bunny Card Design

Pink Bunny Card Design

This gorgeous matt textured and “flittered” Patisserie design by artist Victoria Nelson is my final choice. It takes me back to my favourite weekend pastime when I was living and working in France in my early 20s; languishing in a French cafe enjoying a delicious Mille-feuille or Tarte au Citron. Those were the days! “Flitter” is bio-degradable glitter by the way.

Fancy a Challenge?

Why not try your hand at paper crafting? Our life-sized 3D paper model labrador will keep you entertained for hours. This Craft Kit contains 28 sheets of 270gsm card with printed templates, high adhesion craft glue, sticks for glue application, scissors and scoring tool.

All of our paper craft kits are aimed at adults and teens. Any under 12s would need to be supervised.

Flexible way to earn more money

The coronavirus crisis has resulted in financial difficulties for many and the need for an additional income stream. If you’re looking for a flexible way to earn more money to top up your family income then please read on.

Closure of the high street and the massive increase in online shopping has actually benefited the Flamingo Paperie business operation because we are one of only a handful of companies selling British designed greeting cards online. Instead of selling through shops we sell our products through a network of distributors either online via our personal websites and social media accounts or with the use of catalogues, stock baskets and events (when allowed).

Free website for all new joiners

Every new joiner receives a full e-commerce website with a personalised web address from Day 1. Full training and support will be given if required. You earn 20% commission on all website sales. Non website sales will generate a profit of between 30% and 44%.

Additional ways to earn more money

An additional  5%-15% retail bonus is available if you achieve certain sales levels. You can also earn more money by recruiting. You can earn an additional 5% sponsor bonus if you build a team and introduce new distributors to the business. These additional income levels will reward you for the extra work that you put in. This means that the more active you are, the more you earn.

Excellent value for customers

Our greeting cards offer fabulous value too. You would have to spend between £3 and £5 for a similar quality card in the high street. By comparison our cards are retailed at £2 each or £1.60 each if our customers buy 10 or more (which they frequently do). Follow this link to see a few of our current best sellers. Delivery is free for all online customer orders of more than £30.

More than 95% of our products are designed and printed in the UK using UK-sourced environmentally accredited materials. We have put a “recycle” message on the back of all of our cards because it reminds our consumers to put them in the recycle bin. We work with all of our suppliers to ensure that the material we purchase comes from independently certified and well-managed forests. This is because these suppliers reject illegal and/or destructive logging and are regulated by the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council). We also favour the exclusive use of vegetable-based inks.

    Top 10 Best Selling Flamingo Paperie Birthday Cards

    Birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions still need to be celebrated and acknowledged even though we are all in lockdown. The closure of high street retailers means that people are looking online to purchase their greeting cards and giftwrap. Flamingo Paperie is the UK’s leading direct selling paper stationery company. To help you with your selection, here is a list of our Top 10 best selling birthday cards based on February 2020 sales data:

    1. In the Number One Slot is our trendy ‘Stars (Happy Birthday)’ design by popular  Flamingo Paperie artist Kate Mawdsley (Code : FP6128). Customers regularly tell me at events how difficult it is to buy cards for men and boys. This 6″x 6″ generic birthday card design is a must have staple and is suitable for males of all ages.

    Blue Star Birthday Card

     

    2. Another generic 6″x 6″ design.  ‘A Big Happy Birthday’ card by artist Lorraine Duff is a great staple for your card draw (Code : FP6145) as its multi-colours make it suitable for all genders and ages.

    A Big Happy Birthday Card

    3. Amazingly there is just one alcohol related card in the Top 10. Artist Michael C L Cheung’s new 5″ x 5″  ‘Cheers!’ design is proving to be extremely popular (Code: FP5105). Its muted blue brown colour combination is very attractive.

    4.Our best selling Christmas Sheep appear in a party mood in this fun birthday design called Happy Baaaa-Day by artist Tim Mason (Code : FP6133)  . Have you noticed that all of our top 4 designs have stars on them? Interesting!

    Happy Baaaa-Day Card Design

     

    5.I love this cheeky and very trendy 6″ x 6″  ‘Not As Old’ design by artist Laura Stone (Code: FP6138). It has a lovely delicate shaker feel to it.

    Not As Old Card Design

    There’s a passion for pink

    Interestingly the last five designs in our top 10 are all pink ….

     

    6. We find that the Flamingo Paperie floral designs sell particularly well. There are now three whole pages of florals and landscapes in our catalogue for you to choose from. This 6″ x 6″ ‘Happy Birthday (Pink Floral)’ is artist Laura Stone’s second design in the Top 10 (Code: FP6140)

    7. One of my favourites! This delicate ‘Rose Cupcake’ design (Code: FP5115) by artist Mikki Butterley reminds me of a Laura Ashley style bedroom wallpaper that I had when I was a child.

    Rose Cupcake Card Design

     

     

    9. Interestingly, this is the only card in our Top 10 with a traditional 5″ x 7″ dimension. ‘Happy Birthday Balloons’ is a very pretty design by artist Claudine Rose (Code: FP7042). It has been foiled during the production process to make it even more luxurious.

    Birthday Balloons Card Design

     

    10. This witty and very cute 5″ x 5″ Llama design called ‘Another Year Older?’ by artist Karen Tye Bentley (Code: FP5112), has not surprisingly trotted into our Best Seller list.  The Directors loved this design so much that they used it as our 2020 brochure cover design. Its gold foil accents make it look even more special.

    I hope you found my little round up interesting. Just a reminder that, whilst some of our cards have captions on the outside, they are all blank on the inside leaving space for your own personalised messages.

    Designed in the UK

    100% of all our greeting cards are designed and printed in the UK. This gives our range a quirky “Britishness”  that the large American card manufacturers, who supply our high street, are unable to replicate.

    Flamingo Paperie and the Environment

    We are continuously working to improve our environmental credentials. Best practice is applied to all issues that affect the environment. For instance we work with our suppliers to ensure that our raw materials only come from independently certified and well-managed forests which reject illegal and/or destructive logging. We favour the exclusive use of vegetable-based inks ensuring that all products are printed using low, or no, alcohol printing techniques. This is because it eliminates the Volatile Organic Compound emissions that are harmful to health and contribute to global warming and the destruction of the ozone layer. We also encourage recycling by the consumer by having a  ‘recycle’ message on the back of our cards

    Need more birthday cards but short of time?

    If you’re short of time and would like one of each of these Top 10 designs to restock your card draw then simply email me the words “Top 10 please” with your name and address to SARAH.L.GIFFFORD@GMAIL.COM. I will then process your order and will email you a payment link. Simples!!

    Would you like to sell these amazing cards yourself?

    The coronavirus lockdown has increased the demand for an online supply of greeting cards. I received a record number of orders through my website last month. As a direct selling greeting card company our success is determined by the number of distributors that we have within our sales network. Are you looking for a new challenge or an additional source of income for yourself? Would you like to do some fundraising for a favourite charity?
