We have started to replace the cards we will be losing due to Arjo Wiggins going into administration. There are new colours in the Senses range and we have just bought in 16 colours in the GMund Colours range (below). We will be adding to these in due course. GMund colours are the same weight and feel as Keaykolour. We will be adding paper to match very shortly.
Following on from the Arjo Wiggins collapse which will affect supplies of Conqueror, Curious, Keaykolour, Olin and Popset, we have stocked up on these cards and papers, so for the time being we will be able to supply these up to the point when the merchant has run out of stock.
Moving forward, we have identified replacements for Conqueror, this is Zeta, which is identical in look, weight and quality. Likewise Splendour which will replace Olin. At the moment the Olin White 300gsm and Olin Cream 300gsm have been changed on the site to Splendour.
The Keaykolour range, we are working on to get the closest colours. We have identified a dozen so far. These will go on the site shortly.
We have decided, in addition to the 270gsm Colorset Recycled cards, we are bringing in 10 colours in the 350gsm weight, we are also extending the range of 120gsm Colorset papers we will be offering.
We do have a lot of pearlescents on the site already, but we will be bringing in closest matches to the Curious cards and papers. We are just waiting for swatches and negotiating prices for these.
We are close to finishing the refurbishment of our factory shop. We were aiming for it to reopen on the 9th but due to unforeseen circumstances we are now reopening on Tuesday May 10th. The website, production and our print department is operating normally.
Local customers are very welcome to either place an order on the website, choosing ‘pick up from factory shop’ or can phone through an order. We will then let you know when it is ready to collect.
We are afraid that there is some disruption with some orders getting through customs. At the moment about 70% of our european orders are getting through to our customers. We are told by DPD that there is a big backlog caused by Covid and Brexit and there are problems with the electronic customs at the DPD hub. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
We are afraid that the paper mill have discontinued the Gmund Tactile. We knew this was afoot so we bought in the nearest card to it which is the Arena Rough Extra White 300gsm which is on the uncreased located at https://www.pdacardandcraft.co.uk/arena-rough-extra-white-uncreased.html
We have bought in eleven new colours in the smooth double sided colour range from Senses. The cards are 350gsm and the paper 140gsm. These top quality cards are perfect for digital and hot foiling as well as perfect for card making etc. These are available in all relevant categories, links to the uncreased Card Paper
