Well what a night!
Our official launch for World’s Worst Word’s Greetings Cards went off with a bang this weekend!
The very wonderful Tilt Pinball café bar in the centre of Birmingham allowed us to promote our official launch at their Uber cool venue and which we're very thankful for that.
As two designers, who have worked our arses off producing some cool and quirky designs, we obviously think our greetings cards are funny – because they are!
But when we decided to let them loose on the public it was a scary prospect. Like when you introduce your new boyfriend or baby to your friends and family, you want them to love them, find them as charming and endearing as you do.
Stomach churning and nerves jangling we opened our pop up shop to sell our cheeky greetings cards.
Within a matter of minutes all nerves and shaky hands disappeared and were replaced by chuckles, chortles, giggles and booming laughs when our customers surveyed our cards.
Not only that but the ringing of our till sounded consistently beautiful throughout the night. Our guests were certainly not afraid to put their money where their mouths are.
And the orders on the website have started rolling in too.
We know it’s only October, but our customers are certainly preparing for Christmas as our cheeky Xmas cards have nearly sold out.
Not only that but the exciting offer of another pop up shop in the student capital of Birmingham is imminent, so we will keep you posted.
When starting World’s Worst Words Greetings Cards, we knew we wanted to buck the greetings card trend by by-passing the gaudy and the glitzy and embracing the doodle, striking black and white designs with an ‘in yer face’ message but somehow manage to deliver that in an inconspicuous manner.
It's never easy to buck a trend when starting a new business and hoping your audience and customers will embrace it with you.
But even the harshest of critics have laughed, bought, written, and posted our naughty greeting cards to their nearest and dearest so we know we are doing something right.
When a venue is full of people you know and people you don’t and they are all laughing at the same things, it’s pretty damn cool and rewarding – it makes us feel really good about our brand, knowing that we can make people laugh, cos like we said, laughter is the best medicine you can take!
