The mission of Clear Creations is to create and produce lovingly designed and hand finished greetings cards and gift wrap at an affordable price. Founded ten years ago by Victoria Prior, the publisher has become an established company in this vibrant and competitive industry sector, with in-house designers working tirelessly to bring out fresh new designs that remain in keeping with the Clear Creations ethos.
The Clear Creations story began when Victoria started making simple designs at her Mum’s kitchen table to pursue her love of greeting cards. As a young child she would while away the hours making greeting cards for her family and friends and loved it so much she turned it into her own company which has grown from strength to strength.
Says Victoria: “It has been an exciting period of change – we’ve recently relocated to East Sussex, and taken on our own warehousing. Dispatch and fulfilment are now a much more efficient service to our customers”.
Even more recently, due to expansion, in October 2017 Victoria invited her mum (Jane Edwards) to join the business making it a real family affair. Jane has a sales and marketing background and jumped at the opportunity to work with and support her daughter and Clear Creations now operates as a Daughter and Mother business.
“You can find Clear Creations in retail chains, independent stores and garden centres across the UK,” Victoria adds. “We also wholesale to international distributors across the globe and you can also find our cards in France, Greece, Germany, Italy, Holland, New Zealand and Estonia amongst others.
“With lots of new initiatives planned for 2019 our story becomes more and more exciting. We are currently working on new designs for Christmas 2019 plus some new collections featuring foiling plus some refreshes of our much loved favourites.
“Come and see us at Spring Fair in Hall 3 Stand J47, where we will be participating in the Spring Fair Voucher Scheme offering discounts for all new customers. Then later in the year we will be exhibiting at PG Live in London.”
The Clear Creations product range comprises of over 15 collections ranging from every day and seasonal such as Valentines, Easter, Mother’s Day and Christmas. We currently have over 200 designs in production designs. The cards have a unique finish as each one is hand finished with Swarovski crystals and glitters. All are printed in the UK and sold with an affordable RRP of £2.95
