5. ABOUT FUNKY PIGEON
Did you read that name to the tune of the advert jiggle? Bet you did!
Funky Pigeon is one of the UK’s leading online retailers in customisable greetings cards and gifts to be sent through the post to their intended recipient. Customers shop for the occasion they need, are given the option to customise the card with bespoke wording and their own photos and then can add in gifts such as flowers, boxes of chocolate and cuddly toys, select a delivery date and ensure your parcel will arrive on the correct day.
Whilst flowers, alcohol and some gifts are limited to UK-only delivery, Funky Pigeon’s services also extend to overseas deliveries; so no matter where you are or where your friend or family member is, you can commemorate the day with them.
One of Funky Pigeon’s most popular products, and a new entry to the site, is personalised postcards. These are a super cheap and easy way to let your friends know you’re thinking of them, even if there’s not a special day or occasion to celebrate. They’re personalised in the same way as other greetings cards too, so you can send something unexpected and fun in the post: after all, we can all agree that receiving post that isn’t bills is vastly underrated!
Funky Pigeon has also recently made a foray into the wedding stationery market, co-ordinating invites and save-the-dates for couples so that they don’t need to faff about with producing, posting and writing lots of envelopes. This is a bit of an untouched market in terms of budget brands, so it’s likely that they will do well. Some of the designs on offer for wedding stationery could easily be amended for other events, so do consider checking them out if you’re hosting a party, gig or fundraiser.
Based out of Bristol, Funky Pigeon is an innovative and fast-moving British business. Its nearest competitors in the customisable online greetings cards market aren’t British-based, so if you want to support local business, they’re the obvious option. Funky Pigeon is also well-known for hiring students fresh out of university and supporting them through career development and growth – so that’s our kind of company if we ever heard of it! Whilst primarily based online, Funky Pigeon do have some brick-and-mortar stores throughout the UK, mainly in train and travel stations where you might need to pick up a card ‘on-the-go’.
Put simply, Funky Pigeon is so popular because of its ease and convenience. You don’t need to leave the comfort of your sofa to pick out the perfect present and make sure it gets there when you need it to – so even if, to be frank, you have scrabbled around to find something quickly because you forgot about the impending occasion entirely, it can still look as though you put time, effort and thought into your purchase!
TOP STUDENT PICKS
Take a look:
CREATE YOUR OWN PHOTO POSTCARD, FROM 99P
You don’t need a special occasion to check in with your family friends! Whatever you’re up to, or are they are, just upload your favourite photo of you together and pop a postcard direct to them in the post just to say hi. It’s a cheap and super-easy way of letting people know you’re thinking of them without the need for grand gestures or expensive gifts.
PERSONALISED PROSECCO FOR THE LETTERBOX, £19.99
Get them a drink on you. Upload your own photo and text to create a custom label for this 75cl of fizz and allow them to toast the day with their own personalised booze! It’s packaged ideally too to fit right through a letterbox, so the recipient doesn’t need to be in to receive it. Lots of people keep the bottles as a memento afterwards, so your gift will last much longer than a few glasses. Just don’t make the label too risqué, eh? You’ll never know who may nip round and see it on the side in the kitchen.
LICENSED CUSTOMISABLE BRANDED BIRTHDAY CARDS, FROM 99P
Unlike other photo upload greeting card sites, Funky Pigeon has some from brands known and loved around the world! Customise cards for Harry Potter-heads, RuPaul’s Drag Racers, Frozen fans and Jedis. Amongst the most popular brands are Marvel, Disney, Me To You and a range of Barclays Premier League Football Clubs. They’re much more thoughtful than a shop-bought 99p character card and kids, in particular, will love to feel part of their favourite thing!
HISTORY OF THE BRAND
Funky Pigeon was launched in 2005 by entrepreneur Richard Pepper, then under the name of Spilt Ink Studio. He set up the site with the aim of creating annual email reminders for himself and his customers of special occasions and birthdays so that they’d be prompted and able to purchase in advance, never missing a date again. The site expanded to also include targeted mailshots for corporate clients, but quickly gained popularity with individuals looking to create personalised cards. It grew and was in need of physical expansion, but he was unable to manage this by himself.
Selling up to WHSmith in 2010, Richard remains at the helm of the business but it has grown considerably. 30 staff work out of the Funky Pigeon head office in Bristol, and several others at printing facilities and WHSmith HQ. Now reputably for its catchy bird-themed ads and jingle, Funky Pigeon is a household name throughout the UK and markets heavily on daytime and family TV. Funky Pigeon remains a valued part of the WHSmith business and amongst its stationery sub-brands, is profitable for the retailer. During the 2020 coronavirus pandemic lockdown, with the public unable to leave their homes to purchase birthday cards and gifts, the site soared in popularity and had to temporarily close to work through such a large backlog of orders!
