It is the time of year when we traditionally think of getting all those thank you teacher cards and gifts and Flamingo Paperie have a gorgeous range of thank you cards which are great for this occasion!
Here are some examples from the Flamingo Paperie card range which I think would be great as thank you teacher cards:
Of course thank you cards are not just for teachers! Many who visit my pop-up card shop keep a stock of thank you cards in hand for when they need them. Here are some more that are currently in the Flamingo Paperie card range:
I’ll admit these are quite floral! If you are looking for something less floral then don’t forget all of our range is blank inside so there are many, many more cards you can choose from to send as a thank you. Here are some of my suggestions:
These are great as you can choose something that the person receiving the card likes or enjoys and write your own suitable thank you message inside.
If you send a lot of thank you cards then it might be worth thinking about using notecards, these are postcards with envelopes and are excellent value at £4.50 for a pack of 10. Here are some of the current designs:
As well as notecards we now have some notelets available too. These are available in packs of 8 and we have two designs available. The oranges and lemons have 4 of each design in the pack.
The notecards and notelets are both great for sending after a birthday. I hope that has given you some ideas for both for teachers and for other people too!
Father’s Day in the UK is on 19th June this year (2022). Here are some of my suggestions for Father’s Day cards from the Flamingo Paperie card range.
Whilst we don’t have any of the traditional Father’s Day cards, there are also many alternatives which can be used as Father’s Day cards without the fear of cheesy rhymes being inside! All our cards are blank inside, which means you can select the one which is perfect for the recipient and then write your own Father’s Day message inside.
Perhaps your dad loves gardening, or tech or golf? A great scenic card is also a fabulous option for a dad that loves getting away on holiday. We also have the cut through farm and cut through pub designs which are brilliant!
There is also a fabulous range of nature themed cards here are three of my favourites. These are also popular with my customer too and can actually be used for many different occasions.
I hope that has helped to give you some ideas. Here are three more of my best selling cards for men, which can easily be used for Father’s Day too.
Here are some of my suggestions for birthday cards for teenagers from the Flamingo Paperie card range. Of course there are lots of cake options! All of our cards are blank inside so you don’t need to worry about the message being appropriate or not.
Flamingo Paperie cards are excellent value at £2.40 each, or £1.90 each when you buy 10 or more assorted cards. Once you get to 10 cards then they are all £1.90, excellent value! Take advantage of the free delivery when you shop online too, free delivery on orders over £30.
Time after time on my card stall I am asked for birthday cards for men because they are so hard to buy for! I am delighted to say we have a wonderful selection for men.
All our cards are £2.40 each or £1.90 each when you buy 10 or more assorted cards, so they are excellent value too! Here are some of my suggestions for cards for men from the current Flamingo Paperie card range.
Of course sporting ones and drinks ones are often the first choices for men’s cards, but they aren’t always suitable. Happily there are many alternatives to these in our range! King for the day has been very popular, along with the Happy Birthday stars and the Birthday candles.
There are also many which can be used for men, women or children! As all of our cards are blank inside you don’t have to worry that the message isn’t suitable, as you can write your own message suited for the man you are sending it to. This makes our card range really flexible.
As well as the 27 cards featured, there are also many animal and nature cards or scenic cards which may also be suitable depending on the recipient. For example, I have shown the Boat on the Water card. You can browse our full range on the website.
I am looking for more people to work with me and become part of my team of Flamingo Paperie Partners. This business is wonderfully simple, there is no complicated product information to learn. You can be up and running in a matter of minutes!
Our range includes beautiful greetings cards, quality recyclable gift wrap, papercraft kits, gorgeous notebooks, bunting, colour in tablecloths and posters. At Christmas we also have beautiful advent calendars, paperchains, packs of Christmas cards and our best selling advent calendar cards.
Everyone who becomes a partner gets their own website included. There is no monthly fee for this and no set up fee, or maintenance fee for the website. The website is available for you to share as soon as you become a partner. Orders placed through your website are despatched from Flamingo Head Office and sent direct to your customer.
Are there targets to meet?
There are no monthly sales targets to meet, so it is a very flexible business. I would however always suggest that you set yourself some of your own targets to meet, as this will help you to grow your business and encourage you to work consistently at your business.
What is in it for Me?
As a Flamingo Partner you earn 30% basic commission on your sales (20% on website sales), with additional retail bonuses once you reach certain sales levels. You can also earn bonuses for growing and helping a team. There is a minimum sales requirement to qualify for these team bonuses.
How do I get Started?
To become a Flamingo Paperie partner you simply choose one of our three discounted starter packs, complete the online forms and you are ready to go!
The starters packs are £45, £95 and £200. I suggest that you go for the biggest starter pack that you can reasonably afford. I started with the £200 pack and definitely didn’t regret it, whereas I know many partners who started with the £45 pack and wish they had gone bigger! The bigger the pack the more profit there is to be made from it! Here is a comparison of the starter packs and their contents.
Once you have invested in your starter pack, your website is available to share. Your starter pack will come within a few days. You can then order as and when you would like. Your customers can choose to order direct with you when you place your orders or through your website at any time.
You also get me to help and support you in your Flamingo Paperie business, plus a wider supportive team too with fortnightly zoom calls. Head Office run regular conferences, there are two large product launches a year, plus three smaller product releases.
The Small Print
You can’t sell on third party selling sites such as eBay and Amazon or in shops. There is a £15 fee each year to remain as a partner. Only available in the UK, France, Australia and New Zealand. Outside of these areas you can register for free as an International Business Customer and buy at wholesale prices, contact me to enquire about this.
There is also a strong possibility that you might get addicted to beautiful cards and stationery!
