Card Connection’s Latest Designs Ensure ‘Dads Rule’ on Father’s Day

April 25, 2016 // // Leading greeting card publisher and franchisor, Card Connection, has launched its new Father’s Day range.  The 36 new designs will be delivered to more than 12,000 retailers across the UK by Card Connection’s network of self-employed franchisees in-time for Father’s Day.

“The selection means there is a card to suit all ages and tastes,” confirms Michael Johnson, managing director, Card Connection.  “From humour, to cute, to sentiment, the range has something for every dad.  In addition to our in-house styles, this year, we have also included licenced designs featuring the ever popular character Boofle, plus a Minions ‘Dads Rule’ card which are sure to appeal to a broad demographic.

“The new range will be supplied to our National Accounts such as Costcutter, WH Smiths Motorway Services, NISA, BP and Spar plus our independent retail customers and merchandised by our franchisees on a consignment basis,” explains Johnson.  “This means retailers only pay for what they sell.  For larger stores a specially developed Father’s Day display unit is available on loan, to show off the selection to its best advantage, encouraging consumers to browse and buy.”

Card Connection is part of UK Greetings, which is a subsidiary of American Greetings Inc., one of the largest greeting card publishers in the world and has limited vacancies for franchisees that are keen to run an expanding business.  Since the franchise network in the UK is complete, the available opportunities now consist of acquiring an already-established territory from an existing franchisee.   These vary in price according to their level of development, but start at £7k + Stock + Card Connection fee with earnings potential in excess of £50k per annum. 

Territories currently available include: Bath, Coventry, Bournemouth, Northampton, Liverpool, Bradford, Brighton, Plymouth, Edinburgh and Ireland South.  For further information about franchises for sale, please see:
