Ch-ch-ch-changes....

...as David Bowie sang, it's ch-ch-changes all round at Arbee Cards lately! When we launched the business at the start of June, our website that went live was just a holding site for information, contact details & the important bit - letting you all see our designs, while we were waiting to get something really beautiful all ready for you.

It's very exciting - things are coming together brilliantly thanks to the expertise & talent of a fab Belfast-based web designer we've been working with. The new site will truly reflect what Arbee Cards is all about and really highlight the Vintage-inspired design aspect of our stationery and cards. 

The new site is still being stitched together as we type...but we were far too excited to keep it to ourselves (are we dedicated to our work, or just sad??!! Don't answer!!)  In the meantime, thought the blog could do with a touch of the Vintage too - courtesy of the wonderful world of shabbyblogs.com  

If you haven't heard of Shabby Blogs and have your own blog, get yourself over there for a free & wonderful makeover! Even better - follow our blog and we'll follow you back. We're relatively new to blogging & are having a fab time discovering a whole new & exciting world of arts, crafts, weddings & general creativity on the interweb. 

Hope to follow you back soon!

Bridal SOS!

Recently we were asked to help out on a bridal SOS for help finishing handmade invitations - and thought it would be a useful service to offer everyone.

We know just how much work goes into designing & making wedding invitations, place cards, order of service, and all the other little finishes. We're always hearing stories about poor brides & grooms staying up until all night glueing invitations & place cards together, at a time when they could be doing with much less stress! But what can they do - they have the materials, they can't afford time or money to throw it all in and buy some ready made invitations...

This is where our new 'Bridal SOS' service comes in. If you, or someone you know, is wishing they could just wave a wand and have all their stationery finished and ready to post - then consider us your fairy card-finishing godmothers!

Price depends on invitation style, but an average 2-3 days service to finish 100 invitations will be around £30. We can also print insides for invitations or whatever you need - just give us a shout!

New NI stockist for Arbee Cards

We're delighted to tell you we have our first stockist of our greeting cards & notecards - it's Cleo Crafts in Newtownabbey, Co. Antrim.

It's a new craft shop in Merville Garden Village, and is full of beautiful crafty bits and pieces - now including a small selection of our designs from both our occasions range & vintage cards. Yay!
