Gift and greetings giant Carte Blanche group has been selected by Creation Express to launch their innovative instore system which allows the shopper to create personalised cards and gifts in minutes.
In just a few clicks, the cutting-edge personalisation centre can create wonderful cards, mugs, cushions, candles, frames and other items, allowing the shopper to take home a unique and very special gift without waiting for delivery.
