Cards with a difference
Who’s this? Cardly
What’s it all about? Well, cards obviously. Birthday cards, romantic cards, seasonal cards, occasion cards—cards for any conceivable time or event that you might need to send a card.
Anything else we should know? These aren’t the kind of run-of-the-mill cards you find everywhere. They come from a collective of talented, independent artists and Cardly has a special editing function allowing you to digitally personalise your card. So you can order a cool card online, add your own doodles and handwritten-style messages inside.
So how did it all come to be? Co-founder Patrick Gaskin used to work in newsagencies and saw how wasteful the greeting card business could be—and also how tough it was for independent, creative card makers to get shelf space next to the big-name, dominant players in the industry. Wanting to give smaller artists a platform he created Cardly. And, because cards are only printed when they’re ordered, it’s more sustainable.
