Card Connection Launches Hollywood Card Designs

Leading greeting card publisher and franchisor, Card Connection, has launched a new selection of greeting cards based on a Hollywood theme to add to its existing extensive portfolio. The new cards which are printed in stylish monochrome depicting Hollywood icons and films such as Breakfast at Tiffany's, Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire and The Wizard of Oz, will be distributed to retail outlets throughout the UK and Ireland by Card Connections' network of franchisees.

'Although our entire range is constantly refreshed and updated with new designs, the Hollywood cards are particularly special.' confirms Robina Every, Sales & Marketing Director, Card Connection. 'They are a unique balance of fashion and nostalgia based on strong imagery and we believe they will prove popular for professionals and the sophisticated send.'

Card Connection itself is one of the UK's largest card publishers and is the market leader in the franchised distribution of greeting cards. 'A Card Connection greeting card is sold every two seconds in the UK,' continues Every. 'One reason for this is the sheer variety of our cards. With both male and female choices in cute, contemporary, traditional, fun, humour and every sort of seasonal and occasion cards design styles we ensure there is something to appeal to everyone.'
