www.pur-ple.co.uk is an exciting new collaboration of artists and publishers connecting together with their updates, views & advice on greetings cards + design.
*pur-ple has evolved from my purplegreetingscards.blogspot.com blog. I have great fun running an online shop www.purplegreetingscards.co.uk sourcing new and unusual greetings cards from talented artists and decided to take the next step and change my existing blog into *pur-ple.
*pur-ple aims to become a source of updates, views & advice for greetings cards artists, illustrators, designers, publishers & those who also love greetings cards and great design! *pur-ple also aims to help promote them too.
If you would like to be included in *pur-ple's free directory of artists & publishers then please contact me by leaving your website / shop / store / blog link in the comments box below and I will be delighted to add your link here on *pur-ple! (Please kindly link back to *pur-ple too & follow us here and on Twitter!)
I must admit I'm a bit of a fan of moo cards, especially their mini cards which they have just launched some brand new features for.
The updates include new layouts, fonts & colours for the back of your cards. A full image upload for the back of your cards. A new and improved preview, bulk discounts and even cute new recyclable paper boxes.
After reading this post by Mark Griffiths at The Guardian gardening blog it has inspired me to plant my much cherished lotus flower seeds... well perhaps one of them to begin with, to see what happens!
www.pur-ple.co.uk is my online shop full of pretty things such as cards, crafts & haberdashery supplies... In addition to *pur-ple, I recently bought my very own little bricks and mortar shop & workshop in Iddesleigh, Devon which I'm busy renovating ready to open soon! + I love designing, making, crafting, bookkeeping, printing & vintage finds, mixed with Gocco's, letterpresses, Canon, Apple, Ai ... this blog's about those things too, Louise : )
