Some things will never change, will they? Every morning at work I start with my morning routine: Good morning guys – making coffee – Good morning to another colleague – starting the computer – getting ready for the day. Oh no, wait, not quite there yet, another coffee won’t harm :).
So one if the first things I do is checking all orders that came in over night – and that’s exactly when I came across Ann’s order. 2 easy reasons why this order got my full attention: Firstly, because I saw a card with a lovely montage made of baby photos and I liked the design instantly and secondly because Ann has added a long note to her order. Phew, even though I love reading that was a lot of text for me to read on an early morning. 🙂
Here’s what Ann wrote:
“I googled for ages looking for anyone to do A3 cards. There were a lot of people doing a big card but no one who would let you personalise. When I came up with the idea of doing this card I’d thought that the normal places like Moonpig or Funky Pigeon would do this kind of thing – was sorely disappointed they did not. Took a fair bit of searching to find this place though, but glad I did.”.
Luxury A3 card – 100% personalised, 100% handmade
Oh Ann, glad you did find us indeed! Since I loved the card and her feedback so much I decided to contact Ann directly to ask whether I can write about her card. And guess what, Ann agreed and loved her card to appear on the blog. The only thing promise I had to make was not to write about the card before the 20th October. Why not you might ask? Well, the card was a birthday surprise for a 1st birthday – and you never know, the parents might have come across the blog post and the surprise would have been ruined. But no worries, Ann, as promised I only write about it today.
Ann has designed the card for her grandchild’s first birthday. She made a lovely montage with the best photos from the first year for the cover, added a black and white baby photo and a lovely personal message for the inner pages of the card. I am sure little Eva will love the card in a few years time and will appreciate the memory of her first birthday celebrations very much.
And this is what Ann wrote in an email after the birthday party:
Sorry for a slow reply! They absolutely loved the card, everyone was awed by it and wanted to know where we got it. It was really a much greater standard of card compared to the normal slightly soulless custom cards from Moonpig or the like. My sister got engaged on the same day as her daughters birthday so I think another of these cards will be on the cards now!
Thanks again for such a wonderful card, it’s fantastic that someone is able to produce that sort of thing.
Do you know for which occasion you would design a luxury big card?
Birthdays, Anniversaries, Christmas, Christenings, Leaving Parties, Get well Greetings, Wedding Surprises, Valentine’s day…so many occasions that would deserve a massive A3 card full of photos and a private message!
Thanks again Ann for finding us and sharing your lovely card with us – Happy Birthday from all of us at Bags of Love and many happy returns, Eva!
