Jacquie Lawson Greeting Cards

Jacquie Lawson is a British artist who lives in the village of Lurgashall in Southern England. Together with a small team of family and friends, she has developed a unique collection of e-cards, and about 20 cards are added to the collection every year.

In order to cover the substantial costs of running a site that sometimes has to cope with thousands of downloads a day, we charge a very small annual membership fee. This enables our members to send as many e-cards as they like -- there is no effective limit -- for the duration of their membership. [from]

Last December, a British friend gave us a subscription & we have thoroughly enjoyed it. Jacquie Lawson e-cards have delighted friends & family--when is the last time that happened with most things "e-postal"? {We waited too long to send a request regarding still-image use, so above is a quickly cobbled together from the amazing Vintage Holiday Crafts & Clip Art site.}

GG's card recipients haven't received a single item of spam or advertising due to Jacquie's site. Preview one of the new Christmas cards with the adorable Bertie & Fluff characters (a golden retriever & tuxedo kitten, respectively), featuring an English children's choir & the related story. After that, we think you will want to subscribe or gift someone (or both). There are cards for every occasion, the site is easily navigable, & an organizational wonder.
