With the festive season upon us, now is the time to focus on your Christmas card list and take part in the time-honoured tradition of spreading joy and warmth amongst family, friends and acquaintances.
What better way to do it than with the enchanting collection of luxury 3D Christmas cards from Me&McQ. As one of the UK’s leading card makers, Me&McQ has unveiled a wondrous array of intricate designs for 2023 that redefine the art of sending festive greetings.
It is estimated that in the UK, Brits send around 1 billion Christmas cards each year and every year. However, with only one in four of these cards going on to be recycled, when it comes to taking down the decorations nearly 30,000 tons of cards are thrown away and forgotten about come January.
Me&McQ takes a stand by crafting not just cards, but timeless keepsakes. The company has been producing exquisite 3D greeting cards for nearly 40 years, winning two prestigious Louie Awards for their efforts along the way, and is now the UK’s leading producer of stand-up cards. Their luxury 3D Christmas cards will take pride of place on the recipient’s mantelpiece and will be a heartwarming gift that will be cherished for years to come.
Me&McQ’s commitment to detail is unparalleled. Every card is meticulously crafted by a dedicated team of paper engineers and illustrators, showcasing an astonishing level of intricacy. These cards, which never use glue, are laser cut, designed in the UK and hand finished, use premium quality paper and the highest quality printing inks. The luxury 3D Christmas cards are designed to stand up and stand out, no matter where and when they are displayed.
This year’s Me&McQ luxury Christmas collection boasts 45 designs, carefully collaborating previous year’s best sellers with 12 newly recognisable designs. Inspired by quintessential British countryside scenes, iconic festive themes, magical fairytales and their Chocolate Labrador Fable, every card in the collection is an individual narrative in itself. With so many designs to choose from, there is a card to suit all manner of tastes, from the traditional to the whimsical.
