CardyGoons is a small, independent business based in Harrogate (North Yorkshire). Our designs are sometimes rude and always funny, release your inner cardy goon with CardyGoons!
All greetings cards are designed and produced in the UK.
How the goonyness began:
CardyGoons was created when I couldn’t find a Save the Date that really conveyed the fear that I was feeling by the enormity of the event of getting married. So, I designed my own - having more than 10 years experience in Design and Marketing and about 20 years of experience in bad taste jokes this was something that came quite naturally to me.
Once the Save the Dates were designed and printed, myself and partner (now fiancée), visited our friends and family delivering them.
Their reactions were hilarious, they absolutely loved the bad taste humour, and it was amazing to see every person that we gave these to couldn’t help but burst out laughing. I really understood the value of humour and the importance of the message… ‘This Shit Just Got Real!’… Touching, I know. The highlight of handing out the Save the Dates was seeing my 86-year-old Grandma crying with laughter when she read it. I knew then that I had to spread the Goonyness by setting up CardyGoons.
Here at CardyGoons we are fighting the war on lame cards that should have remained as trees.
My ultimate goal of CardyGoons is to be able to provide my mum with a part-time job. The company is definitely heading in the right direction and hopefully we will be able to do this by 2018/19.
