BIG Trade Digest

Here are this week’s enquiries. If you are interested, have questions, know somebody, or know somebody who knows somebody, please contact ron@bigconnections.org

Personalised greeting cards

A company has built a plugin for online gift websites that allows the website owner to offer personalised greeting cards to the end consumer. (think Moonpig.com for gift websites). Once the gift website installs our plugin, they have instant access to over 2500 personalised greeting cards. We recommend a printer that they install at their warehouse which enables them to send the gift and card from the same location. Uptake on cards with gifts is at 40% during quiet months and 60-70% at Mothers Day, Xmas, Valentine’s, etc.. You can see how this works on https://www.gifts.ie/greeting-cards

Over the next couple of months, they will be rolling out personalisation software for mugs, photo books, Canvas & Framed prints and many more products. At present, gift websites outsource the fulfillment of these products to 3rd party suppliers. Printzware’s goal is to enable the gift websites to assemble these products at their own location. 

They are looking for introductions with some of the larger retailers in the UK. Examples being Waitrose, Debenhams, TheWorks to name a few.
