The story behind Cards with Memories...

Our Story

Our Son was born in 2006 and on his Mummy’s birthday I found the perfect card that summed up exactly the feelings for this precious moment.

It was then I had the idea, wouldn’t it be amazing if I could capture this moment every year in one place.

Seven years on we look back at the card and it is great to see how our Son has progressed.   From that initial handprint when he was one, to drawing his first kisses, to his first written word when he was three (with help from Daddy of course), to the sentences he writes today totally independently.

And in 2013 Cards With Memories was born.

We hope a Card from us can give you the memories my wife has every time she opens her Birthday card.

Cards with Memories Story

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How does the card work?

    The card is designed to be given to close relatives. Your son or daughter simply fills the card in as usual in the space provided for each year (and don’t forget to put the year date at the top). For the mummy’s and daddy’s that are helping them in their early years, we feel you could even put a hand or foot print in the boxes provided, which can make this a very special memory from birth.

    The recipient simply gives the card back and it is stored ready for the next year.

  • How big is the card?

    The card is A5 size and although it is thicker than a standard card, it will still comfortably fit into a normal sized C5 envelope (one envelope is included).

  • How much do the cards cost?

    Our hardback card costs £9.99 plus postage, we use a premium 1mm card which is then mounted with a 160gms matt laminate, very similar to a hardback book. We use this technique so that the card lasts for the intended time and many years there after, so you can enjoy looking at the memories. Another way of looking at it, it only costs £1.25 per year.

  • How much is postage and packaging?

    Postage and Packing:
    UK destinations costs £1.95.
