Over the past 10 years, Pictur-esque have established a solid reputation for high quality blank cards and Christmas cards, designed by Yorkshire photographer Charlotte Gale.
Pictur-esque’s blank card ranges prove popular with garden centres, farm and gift shops. Charlotte’s vibrant and creative style ensures that her designs have a strong point of sale impact and naturally lend themselves to this type of retail environment. The versatility of the ranges and their suitability for a wide variety of occasions, means that they are also a firm favourite with customers - particularly those who like to keep a well stocked ‘card drawer’.
Floral & Woodland Range
Pictur-esque’s ‘Floral & Woodland’ range is particularly popular with garden centre buyers and customers. It features over 20 blank card designs, including staple favourites such as roses, blossom and a bluebell wood, as well as a host of other flora.
Animals & Birds Range
Animals and birds feature heavily across Pictur-esque’s collections too, with this blank range including favourites such as lambs, pigs and a variety of birds. A strong agricultural theme means that these designs would be particularly well suited to retailers located in a rural area.
Pictur-esque’s Landscapes range has a more regional focus. However, some of Yorkshire’s most iconic views, such as the one from the top of Sutton Bank (described by James Herriot as ‘The finest view in England’), Whitby harbour and the stunning Viaduct over the River Nidd at
Knaresborough, certainly have wider appeal outside the county.
If you like to get your orders in early, Pictur-esque have over 50 designs of Christmas cards, all designed and photographed by Charlotte Gale. Again colour and creativity are at the heart of many of Charlotte’s designs and the diversity of ranges should appeal to a wide variety of customers.
Too Many Sprouts Range
It’s not hard to see why Pictur-esque’s ‘Too Many Sprouts’ range is a firm favourite. From ‘Pigs in Blankets’ to cute dressed up vegetables, this collection of slightly quirky and often tongue in cheek designs are ideal for any customer or buyer looking for something a bit different. Spudnick, Waldorf, Cecil Snowman and Rambo Sprout have all been hand crafted by Charlotte and feature on a variety of festive themed cards, including ‘Shepherd Sprouts’, ‘We Three Kings’ and ‘Sledging Sprouts’.
Animals & Birds Range
Being a nation of animal lovers, the Animals and Birds Christmas range is surely a must have
staple on any wall display or spinner. Unsurprisingly Charlotte’s robin design goes down especially well in garden centres, whilst her Labrador, Spaniel and Dachshund Christmas cards prove popular with dog lovers.
They say never work with children or animals, but these particular models all seem surprisingly co-operative.
Winter Landscapes Range
Classic winter snow scenes and rivers feature heavily in Pictur-esque’s more traditional ‘Winter Landsapes’ Christmas card collection. These luxury cards are perfect for a special someone, or for sending to friends and relatives abroad.
