Caturday Cards - The Budding Business and New Cards

Mrrraow, everyone! Fluffy here!

While we wait for Heather to receive a job confirmation call from the nursery school (her place of work), we have been investing all our time and energy into producing, printing and promoting our greeting cards here in Turin.

Our local printer has promised to have 1500 of our cards printed and packaged for us by this afternoon (!!), and our friend H, who runs the local "cartolibreria" (book and stationary shop in Italian) Bianconiglio, has agreed to put our cards up on a sale or return basis. 

It'll be such an emotional experience seeing our cards up on a card rack for the first time! 

What's more, we've also started to make bookmarks out of our Monday Moggy Mewsings comic! We are thinking we might take them to a few bookstores, both new and second-hand, pet stores, and stationary stores. Do you like how they turned out?



This week, I have two new cards to share with you, both which have an anniversary theme!

This is my cat mummy and daddy, celebrating 25 years of love and happiness together (with the occasional cat fight!) By the way, those are 25 cat years and not 25 human years!

And here I am, dancing the swing with my bootiful cat girl Molly! I asked Heather why the whiskers she included a nosy little mouse in our romantic card. She didn't have a good answer for me. Mew!


These two cards can be adjusted to fit the number of years the happy couple has been together. And of course, from every sale, we give 10% to Cat's Protection!

We hope you've enjoyed our new selection of cards. Have a relaxing weekend, everyone, and see you on Moggy Mewsings Monday!

Thanks for visiting and your encouraging comment. My SS is slightly weird and we sometimes go off on a tangent with our posts.
