St Leonards cartoonist wants to ‘revolutionise’ greeting cards
Bill Greenhead, artist and animator, hopes his new company, “Fun e-cards”, will “revolutionize the way we send cards”.
The business, started by Mr Greenhead and cartoonist Anthony Smith, allows customers to send cards through the digital platform, meaning there is no waste.
Bill said: “Sending greeting cards is a popular tradition, particularly in the UK where each person sends an average of 16 cards a year. Many of these cards are difficult to recycle and that’s before you consider the plastic bags they often come in. Then, on some more “premium” cards, there are even glitter, bows, plastic numbers and other decorative details – all of which can be harmful to the environment.
“Fun e-cards is a digital platform and an eco-friendly way to send your greeting cards hassle-free and hassle-free.”
He added that the e-cards are customizable and messages can be put on the front as well as a personal message inside.
There are over 250 card designs.
