Just A Card Day – 28th September 2017

Hello, I’d to let you know about Just a Card day, happening today Thursday 28th September 2017.  

The Just A Card campaign is to encourage everyone to support small businesses, designers, makers, independent shops + galleries to buy something small from them – just a card, or anything little – because every sale, however small, makes a BIG difference to a small business.

Sarah Hamilton started the campaign, after seeing this quote from the owners of a recently closed gallery: “If everyone who had complimented our beautiful gallery had bought ‘just a card’, we’d still be open”.  You can read more about the campaign here.

I am launching my new collection of greeting cards called Dundee Delights in October so keep your eyes peeled!  You may have seen some of my other design in shops that include: Dundee Cakes, Patterned Aga, Explosion, Pheasants, Blooming Beautiful, Recipes.  And it’s nearly that season where I can mention the range of Christmas cards:  Dundee Cake with Holly, Christmas Puddings, Robins, Winter in Dundee, Winter in Broughty Ferry, Pheasants in Winter and this year look out for the Penguins in Wooly Hats.  You can see my portfolio here 

You can see my cards locally in Dundee Contemporary Arts and Pretty Fly in Broughty Ferry as well as directly from me, just drop me an email hello@louisekirby.com 

I think it’s important to say ‘hello’ and keep in touch rather than just texting or emailing.  I believe that a card really makes someone’s day and beats the bills and junk mail coming through the letterbox.  I did the illustration above to depict this!  

If you’re on social media, please Retweet and share the posts to spread the message. #justacard

When you buy just a card, from me whatever time of the year, you really are making a BIG difference.  You can follow me on twitter, Facebook or instagram.

Thanks for reading!
