Creating cards with (quite literally) that something extra

“I thought the winning cards were highly original and offer added value of a gift to give longevity to the cards. They are truly fun cards.” Ged Mace, president of the Greeting Card Association
Yoojoo is an award winning independent greeting card company based in West Yorkshire. The seeds for Yoojoo started with the creation of bookmark gifts for family and friends. In order to present the finished pieces attractively I decided to place each animal within a scene – and so the prototype cards emerged. Encouraged by the friends who had loved their gifts and in search of a new challenge now that my family have flown the nest Yoojoo Bookmark Gift Cards was born.
The range of products available has expanded and is created using a wide variety of techniques both old and new; from the ancient art of origami to digital artwork and printing. These are all combined to form unique cards and gifts - the unifying themes being books and upcycling.
Yoojoo products can be can be found in many fabulous shops across the UK and France or purchased online at my Etsy shop.
