Anyone who likes to make their card sending that bit more personal should cast their eyes over the Plant Alphabet range from Yorkshire-based greetings card brand Umbellifer. These vibrant, colourful botanical cards have a unique style, perfect for people who like something with a bit of personality and fun.
With 17 of the 26 letters of the alphabet completed so far, Umbellifer’s designer and owner, Stephen Lennon, says, “This range has been a long time in the creating but it’s been really good fun to do. And because it has proved so successful with customers in my own online shop I have been motivated to go as far with it as I can. Whether I’ll get to Q, X, and Z we’ll have to wait and see!”
The range has eco credentials too. Printed on FSC accredited smooth white board, this and all Umbellifer’s cards going forward will be carbon offset through the Woodland Carbon scheme, meaning a percentage of the money paid for the board goes to the Woodland Trust charity to plant native woodland in the UK. Stephen says, “It’s important to me that my business has as little an impact on the natural environment as possible and I am always looking at ways I can achieve that. Anyone can view my environmental policy on my website and I will be updating it often with new improvements and initiatives as they come along.”
With over 80 botanical cards in three distinct ranges alongside 12 thank you cards and 12 charity Christmas cards, Umbellifer has grown into a British brand that is going places. And now it’s just got personal!
