Freelance Sales Agents Wanted
If you're professional, ambitious - and also an established freelance sales agent - then please read on
Established in 2016, we're really proud of how far we've come. We're stocked in fantastic contemporary shops across the UK by owners who love the exceptional quality of our cards and how much our quirky, design-led cards connect with their customers.
We want to continue along this path and see our cards in other great independent shops in the UK and Ireland. We want to work with a few specially selected agents who may already have a relationship with the kind of places we had in mind.
Our target market
Our clients tend to be contemporary, independent gift shops of all kinds. Some are card shops selling gifts, others are gift shops selling cards. We sell to homeware shops, quirky boutiques, dressmakers, coffee and tea specialists and general stores.
We do incredibly well in towns and cities where people tend to explore for leisure - such as the beautiful sandstone market towns of Rutland and Lincolnshire and the vibrant towns of Warwickshire where independent shops thrive.
Women and men alike buy our cards (but mostly women), typically between the age of 25 and 55. The people who love our cards are the kind of people who look for quality over price. They take pride in picking out gifts for their loved ones and usually have a "card drawer" full of cards they've discovered long before the occasion it is intended for.
We think our cards would be at home in the right chain or department store, but never in low-end or bog-standard establishments. Please don't sell our cards in bargain card stores.
Practically all of our customers have become repeat customers, who are planning to stock us as long as our products remain consistently great.
Why our products are great
We have big plans, including branching out beyond greeting cards, however, just as founder of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, began his sprawling online empire by selling only books, we are only focusing on greeting cards in the first instance.
Our quirky, design-led greeting cards are set apart from others by the following unique selling points.
We print on thick, rich, beautifully textured board that others can't compete with. This is why high end gift shops and their customers love our products.
That said, our cards are not overpriced. We can compete on price with cards of lower quality.
We're slightly on-trend, but we're not sheep
We keep a firm finger on the pulse of what our consumers are looking for, and we make cards that people can give to remind loved ones of a shared joke or passion. Our cards are humorous, quirky and often current, but they are set apart from "trendy cards" by their originality, integrity of design and the outstanding quality that the recipient can't help but notice.
Our products are bankable
We want long-lasting, mutually beneficial relationships with you and your customers. If a design isn't moving at all in your client's shop, we can swap it out for a new design the next time they order.
"our customers love them, so much that it is quite usual for customers to buy many at a time!!"
