UK Greetings | YCN

UK Greetings is the largest leading directly to retailer publisher making innovative, beautiful, cutting edge and classic greeting card, and gift dressing designs in the UK. Back in 1906, a young entrepreneur Jacob Sapirstein had only $50 in his pocket, but a wealth of ambition. He took to the streets of Cleveland, Ohio, selling penny postcards from a handcraft. These postcards made a pretty penny, and Jacob's business became the world's largest direct to retail manufacture of greeting cards. Together, UK Greetings and American Greetings have one of the largest and most talented creative teams in the industry, all around the world, publishing cards in 20 languages in more than 70 countries. I have developed a collection of space-themed greeting cards and gift dressing for the audiences age 7+. The collection includes 2 x Single greeting cards: size 137 x 210mm with the envelope, 1 x Boxed notecard set: 110 x 132mm, 1 x Gift bag: size 267 x 330mm, 1 x Double-sided Gift wrapper and 1 x Notepad cover. 2 x Single cards represent the Sun and the Moon a glow-up card with a blank page for the customer to write their message. How does the card functions? The appearance of the first card will be an Eclipse in a day and full sun in the dark. Similarly, half-moon in the day time and full moon in dark light. Boxed of 1 x 9 notecards represent nine planets. Behind each notecard has a fact about the planets with blank space for notes. 1 x Gift bag has two different illustrations on both sides of the bags, the position of astronauts in the space. Bag string describes an oxygen pipe attached to the astronaut oxygen tank. 1 x Double-sided Gift wrapper side one is a black hole side two is galaxies absorbed into the black hole. And 1 x Notepad cover resembles a satellite.
