Today marks the end of Just A Card’s Indie Week; the national campaign which reminds us that every purchase from an independent designer, maker, gallery or shop, no matter how small, can help with the survival of small businesses. That’s right, even if that purchase is just a card!
We’re celebrating this fantastic campaign with a close up on some of our designer and maker Christmas cards. This Christmas we urge you to visit not just a shop – even if it’s to buy just a card!
So why visit? Our collection is exclusively made up of Fine Art and products by students and graduates from University of the Arts London, so every time you make a purchase, you’re both supporting us as a business as well as our designers, makers and Fine Artists. We’ve been open just over a year, so it’s early days but so far we’ve stocked 700+ different product lines by 84 different artists and designers – providing a vital launch-pad for their businesses. 900+ students and graduates have benefitted from attending our programme of events and workshops, which we often get industry and graduate speakers in to run. It’s great to see that current students and very recent graduates have the confidence to submit their work for sale in not just a shop as a result of the support they’ve received through these workshops!
Enough about us, here’s a few of the Christmas cards we’ve got in store.
