We’re letting the cat out of the bag early on our upcoming promotion which will be running from Monday 22nd until Friday 26th of August. During the final week in August, we’re going to offer a promotion of 20% off all of our greeting cards!
Don’t fret, your usual 50p royalty per sale will still apply (as is the same with all thortful promotions) because we’re taking the 20% off our end!
We want all of you to get the absolute most out of what we’ve forecasted to be a winning offer for our customers, so we’re going to open up the sale a few days early exclusively to you, your friends, family and fans on social media. We’ve even created some snazzy social media assets for you to use on your social media accounts to help spread the word, so make sure to use them to promote your cards!
A few pointers from the thortful marketing team:
1. Your audience, your profile!
Don’t forget to include a link directly to your thortful profile. (Note: if you haven’t customised your thortful URL yet then make sure you do! Just go to “edit profile” and click the link sitting under your profile name and location.)
2. Code, code, code!
Re-quote the promo code “AUGUST20” in the copy of your post. The offer is for 20% off every card, site-wide! The code has to be entered at checkout and applies only to the card price (P&P will still apply as normal!).
3. End date
Keep the expiry date of Friday 26th of August in mind in case you get asked. Orders placed before 2pm on this date will be dispatched on the same day and delivered via 1st Class (expected delivery of Saturday 27th).
Important: As this weekend is a Bank Holiday, any order placed after 2pm on Friday will have an estimated delivery date of Wednesday 31st of August.
4. Add and tag us!
5. Be mindful of correct sizes.
Take note that landscape assets are suitable for Twitter and Facebook, whilst the square assets can be used on Instagram and Facebook.

Hello sun, Summer is officially here! In honour of this wonderful time of year, we’re paying tribute to the trending seasonal tones of 2016 that have managed to sneak in to our bespoke collection of greeting cards.
“Colours this season transport us to a happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves.” Leatrice Eiseman (Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute) hit the nail on the head when describing this season’s colour palette that transcends cultural and gender norms. We always knew our designers were ahead of the curve!
