Flying Twigs review and giveaway

I received two free greeting cards from Flying Twigs to review – a Mother’s Day card and a card for general use. They were sent in a board-backed envelope so arrived in excellent condition, and the Flying Twigs website indicates that they always despatch cards this way. Flying Twigs is an online store which sells greeting cards and posters. Their cards all have the Forest Stewardship Council logo on the back to indicate that the paper they use comes from responsible sources to aid conservation.

Flying Twigs Greetings Cards

Both cards are of very good quality in individual cellophane wrappers.  The accompanying envelopes are also of good quality with decent gum that seals well. I hate it when envelopes don’t seal properly and you end up having to resort to sticky tape.

They are both blank inside which is what I personally prefer and the Flying Twigs website says that most of their greeting cards are blank inside. Information regarding wording or whether a card is blank inside is provided on each product page on the website.

It is a plus point for me that most of their cards are blank inside as sometimes when searching the shelves for cards, you pick up ones with verses written inside which seem unsuitable for your intended recipient. You can end up spending ages searching the shelves for the right one. So I can see a potential time saving benefit of buying online from Flying Twigs.

The design on the Mother’s Day card is of a Trendy Mother. I would be very happy if my boys chose to send me a card like this.

The design on the other “Write for yourself” card is of a quill and inkwell with a quotation by Cyril Connolly. It features in both the Quotation range and the Inspiration range of cards.

They both retail at £3 each, which is a good price in my opinion for quality cards. Yes you can buy some cheaper cards on the High Street, but they will probably be of lower quality.

Postage and packing is 99p which is less than I would have to pay for carparking if I went to purchase a card on the High Street. And postage and packing is free when you buy 3 or more cards.

And I’m hosting a rafflecopter competition to giveaway a selection of five cards to two lucky winners courtesy of Flying Twigs. Each selection will include a Mother’s Day card.
