Bloggers to review greeting cards

Dateline: Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

Website: Pelican Cards


Proposal Q and AQ: What type of product are you asking bloggers to review?

A: Greeting cards

Q: What qualifies a blogger to review your products?

A: Someone who writes on subjects that fit well with the greeting cards - so subjects like gifts, crafts, photography art, inspiration quotations, culture, literature, travel, animals, humour, the environment, flowers... it's probably easier to take a look at the site and see the cards.

One thing is that for sales to individuals we currently only ship to addresses in the UK.

We are looking at ways to sell abroad but at the present time for retail sales, it is UK customers only.

So if you are a blogger with an audience that is mostly outside the UK, then your readership may be disappointed if they can't actually get the product.

But if you think your audience would react well to hearing about these cards, then as a blogger... don't be put …

White rhino munching grass

White rhino munching grass. 
I think it's pretty amazing that anything can get that bulky from eating grass.
It's not white and it's not supposed to be white. 
The word 'white' is a corruption of 'wide' because he has a wide mouth unlike the black rhino.
The black rhino has a pointed upper lip that it uses almost like a little finger that it hooks around branches to manoeuvre them into its mouth.
I photographed the this rhino in the UK on an animal reserve.

World Animal Day Post Edited and Cross-posted From Light Reading

The Weekly Photo Challenge on is 'from lines to patterns'. So take a look at the pattern on the face of this Roan antelope. Scrunch your eyes up so that the face is a blur. Now you can see the way the shape of the face is broken up and everything follows a vertical theme... like perhaps small saplings and vegetation.

OK... on with the show!

It's World Animal Day On October 4th And You Can Get Involved
Here's how:Hold an event for World Animal Day.

Look at the World Animal Day website for ideas.

Check out some of the events lined up for this year and take a look at those from previous years.

Decide on your event; submit it and do it.

World Animal Day has a Wikipedia World Animal Day page devoted to it.

World Animal Day was started in 1931 at a convention of ecologists in Florence as a way of highlighting the plight of endangered species. October 4 was chosen as World Animal Day as it is the Feast Day of St Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals.


Pelican Cards Launched

Like Kon-Tiki on the high seas.
Selling to retail and trade customers. Retail sales to customers in the UK only.
Foreign-based trade customers don't expect orders to be delivered abroad. It is normal to agree delivery to a UK address for onward transmission via the buyer's agent. So trade sales are effectively worldwide.

Greeting cards and posters.

We are thinking of adding gift wrap to the range. But first things first.
We have to figure out a way to get cards printed in the States for sale there. Someone has to look after the retail side. We might try it with Amazon FBA (fulfilled by Amazon) at first.
We have also opened an Etsy store and a Zazzle store. Additional sales channels are not only a way of making more sales, but of seeing what people like.
