There are many unique smaller designers who have some beautiful Christmas Cards available this year! Here’s the top 4 for 2017.
Hello Geronimo is an online boutique specialising in uplifting, stylish and vibrant prints, cards, stationery and artwork for every occasion. It’s where dynamic shapes meet to create innovative yet timeless designs. Their products are creative, vibrant and colourful, they add a little sunshine into everyone’s life. From colourful palettes, modern graphics, to luxurious touches of foil and hand-applied felts, every piece harmonises playful textures and catchy quotes to create a range of innovative-yet-timeless goods, all of which use quality materials. The attention to detail of each product is unique and quite remarkable. The brand was created from Victoria’s foundations as an interior design and her passion for crafts. Hello Geronimo was first introduced to the retail market at Top Drawer in 2011. The original iconic button maps is what this brand is known for although now it covers a much broader range of artwork. I am really looking forward to doing a Q&A with Victoria in the new year. Take a look at their amazing artwork here.

Coulson Macleod specialises in the design and production of greeting cards and prints and is the brainchild of Mark Coulson and Hannah MacLeod (hence the company name). From humble beginnings in 2009 (when Mark and Hannah launched Coulson Macleod from a tiny home office) they are still just as passionate about creating great products as they were almost ten years ago; check out their concertina cards, and wooden cards and prints. All their products are designed in their Northamptonshire studio and made right here in the UK. Check out their range of cards here.
