We are very pleased to announce that on 1st June we are introducing a new art society range and three new artist ranges to our current greeting card collection. Together with the new images by existing artists we are launching 58 new designs for you to enjoy. You can view all the new cards here.
NEW ENGLISH ART CLUB (NEAC)
We have been presenting the Dry Red Press Award at the New English Art Club’s annual exhibition since 2014. We are now very pleased to publish this beautiful new range of 11 fine art greeting cards, using images donated by the artists in support of the NEAC. All royalties for the sales of these cards go to support the art society. The artists who have contributed their images for this range are:

DANIEL COLE SWLA
In 2016 Daniel Cole was the winner of the Dry Red Press award at the annual exhibition of the Society of Wildlife Artists (SWLA) for ‘High Tide on the Fal River’. We loved this card and so did our customers, so we asked him if he would be interested in publishing a greeting card range. Fortunately he agreed, and we are very excited about this stunning range of 10 vibrant images of birds and trees.
Daniel Cole’s background and training in Scientific Illustration have lent his landscape paintings an informed sensitivity to the natural world. Having observed and sketched wild birds from an early age, Cole developed his skills through a series of expeditions around the world, studying each region’s indigenous birds and honing his techniques in sketching and painting.
'Two Magpies, Some Swallows and a Single Blue Tree' by Daniel Cole SWLA
We are really excited about this new range of 7 cards by award winning painter and print maker Anna Perlin. When we received her submission we were overjoyed and decided to go ahead sooner rather than later. Anna creates her distinctive work from her Hertfordshire studio. Inspired by the environment around her, the British landscape and people and places she visits are continuing themes in Anna’s work. Her vibrant subjects open a window on to the world, whether it is a woodland, garden, beach or street.
'Autumn Brights' by Anna Perlin
We are delighted to introduce Kate Green’s beautiful range which contains 6 greeting card designs. Kate Green has got a deep love of literature, nature and history and her work stems from her immediate environment (coastal Norfolk and The Broads) and her imagination. She tries to make work that is decorative, poetic and meaningful.
'Sleeping Tom' by Kate Green
ONLINE TRADE ACCOUNT
We are also introducing new images by some of our existing, much loved artists. Did you know that you can place your greeting card orders through our website? If you are a trade customer and have not yet signed up for an online trade account, you can do so here. Of course, you can still place wholesale orders via email, phone or through our team of sales agents. If you are a non-trade customer you are now able to order through the website too if you happen to live far from one of our lovely stockists. We hope you will enjoy perusing our collection and that the new cards will be of interest to you.
