Join the ripple effect

Festive fun in card-writing bonanza

WRITING Christmas cards at work would get most folk into trouble but at Blue Eyed Sun they told their staff to get down to the task.

The Brighton-based company set aside an hour this week where they managed 107 cards between them and really got into the festive spirit with Santa hats, a tree – and delicious homemade mince pies and jam tarts.
Part of the Greeting card Association’s campaign to encourage card publishers and retailers to send their Christmas cards early to remind people not to forget sending their own.
Blue Eyed Sun MD Jeremy Corner, also a GCA council member, said : “There are around 100,000 people working directly and indirectly with our industry. If each of us sent 10 Christmas cards in the first week of December it would have a fantastic ripple effect from those first million gestures.
“Here we sponsored the cards, their time and the postage, all our team had to do was to write as many cards as they wanted to in the hour - which have been winging their way via Royal Mail this week to their lucky recipients.”
Jeremy has already had his first Christmas gift in the shape of the firm’s Ivy Ellen brand being picked as a best stationery finalist in the 2013 Wedding Ideas Awards.
They made it to the final five after 7,500 votes were cast, and the winners will be announced at the Wedding Ideas Awards ceremony on January 11.
Ivy Ellen general manager Lewis Early said: "We’re delighted to have been chosen for these popular Wedding Awards. Thanks to everyone who voted for us.
“This is the second time we have made the finals since we started three years ago and we are very excited to be in the finals."
