The summer of spreading love

Cards are a timeless and easy way to stay in contact, especially important during hard times.

Cards are a way of saying ‘thank you’, ‘I’m sorry’, ‘I’m here’. They can declare love, send sympathy or just let your friends and family know that you’re thinking about them. Receiving a card seems so much more special than a text or an email, as you know that the sender has taken the time to choose a beautiful design as well as to write a lovely message. Rather than being locked away on your phone or your computer they can also be displayed in your home, bringing joy each time you pass.

This summer, the folks at Whistlefish are on a mission. During a season full of brightness and beauty it can be easy to forget that there are plenty of people having hard days. That’s why they’ve added two extra cards into their usual ’10 for £10′ deal, so you can keep spreading the love even when cutting back. Cards show kindness, compassion and care like no social media or messaging service ever can, so spread the love this summer and choose from a large range of designs created by handpicked artists in a range of both traditional and contemporary styles.

Whistlefish cards aren’t just good for human-kind either, they’re gentle on the earth too! Made from 100% recycled paper they are printed with non-toxic vegetable inks and packaged plastic-free. They are printed right here in Cornwall, supporting the local economy and minimising air miles. You can now visit the newly refurbished St Ives Whistlefish shop on Fore Street where you’ll also  discover art and gifts, alongside the cards, meaning you can take home something special as a reminder of your holiday happiness. You’ll find a large range from pretty mugs and tea towels for decorating your kitchen, to travel print tote bags, luxury candles and Cornwall’s only organic gin with a Whistlefish twist. 

There’s something for everyone to treasure at Whistlefish stores this summer, so why not send a piece of the south west to someone you’re thinking of and spread a little happiness?
