Stripey Cats Deliver New Cards for Dog Lovers.
New for 2015, Stripey Cats have unveiled the perfect range of greeting cards for dog lovers. ‘Dogs’ is a collection of 8 new cards featuring adorable puppy stars.
Designed and made by Stripey Cats founder Jonathan Crosby, each of the new card designs focuses on one dog breed. With their own names and characters there’s a variety for every dog fan, from Sol the Sausage Dog to Doug Pug.
The collection features Jonathan’s bright, bold illustrations set against a blue-grey backdrop and white border. A simple, clean background that makes the illustrated portraits pop, and gives a modern feel to the Dogs range.
Despite the minimal elegance of the illustrations, each design bursts with personality; a sure way to ensure the range offers cards for dog lovers of any age.
As with earlier card collections from Stripey Cats each of the cards is hand-finished with a pair of wobbly eyes. A fun finishing touch, which adds to the cute factor.
As a previous winner of the ‘Best Children’s Range’ at the 2013 Henries Awards (the Oscars of the greeting card world), Jonathan’s designs will be particularly appealing to younger card-givers. The Dogs cards are blank inside and out, making them great designs to stockpile for kid’s parties and emergency card-giving occasions.
In keeping with a range that celebrates the natural world’s furry residents, the cards are kind to the environment. Each design is printed on FSC certified paper stock, made in the Lake District; before being matched with a crisp white envelope, ready for sending.
Today’s pick are my personal favourites from the new Dogs collection, see what you think.
The featured Dogs greeting cards retail at £2.50 each and are available direct from Stripey Cats and stockists nationwide. For more information on stocking the range or making a purchase please visit the Stripey Cats website.
