Guest post by Liz Holden, Percy Boynton Cards
Percy Boynton Cards are stylish and attractive cards that are suitable for most occasions – birthdays, thank you etc – as the cards are blank inside (apart from the Christmas range).
I started this project two years ago, combining an interest in art, design and photography with a desire to make a contribution to the refugee crisis. I created a range of art greetings cards using good quality materials – and am giving 50% of my profits to the Refugee Council (the rest goes into producing more cards). To date I have raised over £2000 for the charity and would like to raise a lot more.
The images used are either from photographs I have taken or paintings and lithographs I have created. Also, some come from images produced by my son, Jack Holden, who is an artist.
The cards measure 6” x 6” and come with a good quality white envelope and a cellophane cover.
I currently have over 40 designs
The charitable contribution is stated on the back of the cards and on a small sticker placed on the front on the cellophane cover. I have signed a contract with the Refugee Council and am in regular contact with them.
I have the cards in a number of retail shops including Five Leaves Bookshop Nottingham, Housmans Bookshop King’s Cross, Booth’s Books Hay on Wye and at the Snape Maltings Suffolk. In addition I have a shop on Etsy:
Do consider buying some cards from there or email me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org. I do not charge for postage.
Alternatively come and see the cards during Refugee Week as I am selling them on June 18th in the foyer at Kings Place, Kings Cross, London.
I am also delighted to say that the cards will be on display and available at the Hay Festival Bookshop in the main tent during the Hay Festival from Saturday 26th May to Sunday June 3rd 2018.
If you are an organisation or individual planning a fund raising event and would like to stock / promote the cards please contact me by email: email@example.com.
