Greeting cards and gift brand has a successful licensed collaboration with Portmeirion.
Wrendale Designs – the Lincolnshire-based greeting card and gift brand – has been honoured with a Queen’s Award for excellence in International Trade.
Wrendale Designs, founded by wife and husband team Hannah and Jack Dale (pictured), made its debut as a greeting card publisher at PG Live in 2012 with The Country Set, a greeting card collection based on Hannah’s zoologically correct, but cute nonetheless creations.
Since then, the Wrendale Designs’ portfolio has expanded to include a wide range of gift and homewares including tinware, stationery, textiles and tableware, produced both under the company’s own steam as well as through licensing agreements with other brands.
Among the notable brand expansion has been a continuation of the successful collaboration with tableware group Portmeirion onto many ceramic and kitchen items, including a recently launched dinner service.
“We are so thrilled to receive this award – launching our brand and seeing it so well received across the world has been incredibly exciting for us, but we’d like to say an enormous thank you to all of our loyal customers in the UK who have supported us, since we launched Wrendale – without their belief in our brand this would never have been possible,” commented Hannah.
