|New - Orchid Greeting Cards
We have had many requests over the years for greeting cards to be produced with the photos Don has taken of the orchids we grow in the greenhouse. We are able to announce that there are now 8 lovely large greeting cards available. Each of the cards is blank inside, so they can be used for almost any occasion. They are A5 size (14.8 cm x 21 cm) and printed on high-quality card which is certified as being from a sustainably-managed forest by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
The cards can be bought either individually at £1.95 each +p&p, via our website, or in a box which holds 2 of each sort, so a total of 16 cards (and 16 suitable envelopes of course) retailing at £17.95 +p&p. Bought in the box set, the cards cost just £1.12 each, and that's not allowing for the various discounts which can apply. For example, if a non-therapist buys 3 boxes of the 16 cards, then each card costs just 95 pence each after the 15% discount is applied. A therapist making the same purchase is entitled to a 25% discount, so each card then is costing just 84 pence before adding the p&p. (We have also added new low p&p charges for purchases of one or two cards.)
The cards have only a bit of botanical information about each orchid on the back, along with our basic contact details. Although each of the 8 orchids is one of our essence-producing orchids, yet we decided to leave the essence information off the cards, so that they could appeal to the widest possible audience. The web address is all that hints at something beyond simple botany. By approaching it this way, we hope that the cards will be enjoyed by many people who may have little interest in essences. It is one way of gently introducing the subject, and in the meantime they can enjoy the beauty of the orchids in any case.
Some people may wish to give the boxed set of 16 cards as Christmas presents, and with that in mind we are also offering a "case quantity" discount of 35% on purchases of 12 boxes at a time. So the price anyone pays for the 12 boxes is £139 + p&p. With one purchase you may solve the conundrum of what to get for 12 friends and family for Christmas..!
