In one of the most exciting developments since the launch of Cards For You, we are delighted to announce that our company has been appointed as the UK distributor for Cancer Research UK’s superb range of Greeting Cards.
Cancer Research UK is the country’s biggest charity with the highest levels of consumer recognition. They have the largest income from donations generated from both fund raising activities and products which carry their brand name. The success they have had in recent years in developing cancer treatments has improved the quality of life for millions of families and this has resulted in substantial ongoing support for their activities.
The range of greeting cards has proven very successful in the last 2 years and we are delighted to add this portfolio of designs to the existing market-leading Cards For You collection.
Our Franchisees and their retail customers are already benefiting from additional sales provided by the Cancer Research UK range. Both retailers and consumers clearly respond very positively to a product which is of the highest quality and supports this charity’s valuable work.
