5. Store Overview & Buyers Guide

The quirky brand name ‘Moonpig’ is likely to be the first word that comes to mind when you think of customisable greetings cards. You can sing the jingle, right? Launched in the year 2000 with a furore of television and online advertising, by 2007 the company was responsible for a whopping 90% of sales in the British birthday card market – phew!

At time of writing, the funky company has helped celebrate 63 million birthdays, 1.7 million new babies, 1.8 million weddings and 13 million Christmases!

They allow you to drop and drag your own photos and text to personalise birthday or other greetings cards for the recipient you’re sending to; and can then choose to have the card sent to you for signature, or directly to them.

The site has no doubt changed the industry for greetings cards, gifts and flower companies and now offers all, for a variety of traditional and more modern occasions. You’re no longer constrained by the token gesture of ‘just a card’ and instead can get creative paper and gifts alike, sending a great gift to anyone even at the last minute.

Moonpig’s range of gifts includes flowers, mugs, alcohol, balloons, toys and games, t-shirts and foodstuffs, amongst other things, and many can be personalised. If you’re one of those people who never manages to be home for a delivery (or know the person you’re sending to will be out and about), you can even choose from a range of ‘letterbox’ gifts – expertly crafted to fit through a standard letterbox so that they don’t need to be left out in the elements or collected from a delivery office at a later date.

This website only firm no doubt delivers great value for money and an easy service, but they’re bargain-friendly too. Their cards are made of extra-thick paper for great quality, and they’re always available on customer service lines to help you out if you hit technical difficulties.

There’s loads of cheap delivery options (starting from just 65p!) and next-day and same-day postage is applied to all cards – so even if you have completely forgotten a birthday until you see it on Facebook the same morning, your good wishes may still make it on time without giving the game away.

All of us have been in the position where we’ve remembered about an occasion way too late, and normally when we’re out and about and nowhere near a computer to order something. Fear not! The Moonpig app has you covered: the perfect antidote to forgotten birthdays and anniversaries subtly nestled on your smartphone for swift ordering wherever, whenever. You’ll never be sending a ‘Sorry I missed your…’ card again!

Top Student Buy: The Rose Gift Bag – £27

An easy and quick gift selection, this gift bag includes roses AND chocolates – what more could anyone want? 13cm cerise roses and a classic collection of Thornton’s chocolates are packaged up in a floral gift bag and you can include your own gift message.

Even better, the roses will be sent with buds un-opened so the recipient can really enjoy their blossoming over the coming days after their parcel has arrived.

Top Student Buy: Photo Upload Cards – from £3.29

Suitable for any occasion, Moonpig has thousands of templates for you to choose from for a customisable card with any photo you own to be uploaded to.

There are plainer templates for a simple word-over-picture design, or more embellished templates for specific occasions and multi-photo collages.

Cards can be customised on the inside with a message (perfect for quick turnarounds – have it sent direct without you having to sign it first!) and on the back for the ultimate personal touch.

Top Buy: Snack Letterbox Gifts – £15

One of the letterbox range that fits nicely through a front door without having to be collected later or left on the doorstep, this gift box is a great quirky present and will be well-received by all.

A great selection including a Montezuma’s milk chocolate bar, nutty truffles from Monty Bo Jangles, Sicilian sherbet lemons from Hope & Greenwood, salted caramel popcorn from Jo and Seph’s and butter shortbread are all included, and contents change seasonally to take into account the freshest ingredients and flavours.

History of the Company

The company was founded in 2000, just in time to coincide with the collapse of the .com bubble.

This meant that it took five years for the company to make its first profit and required an innovative and tough round of raising funds by the business’ founder, Nick Jenkins. ‘Moonpig’ was Nicks’ nickname at school, hence the unusual brand name, although he has yet to confirm exactly why (although it’s a great mystery with lots of possibilities… it may be better not to know!).

By 2009, the company had sold to almost 3 million customers in what was described as the ‘typical successful start-up curve’, a big loss followed by negligible losses and then a big profit. Once TV advertising began, the business quickly gained popularity and became a household name across the UK. In 2011, Photobox bought for an impressive £120 million.

The company is based in Southwark, but the eagle-eyed amongst you will notice that the postmarks are from Guernsey; this is where their customised cards are printed. Moonpig’s mission remains to “make people’s days brilliant” and their card and gift range continue to grow and develop in order to offer a large range than anywhere else online.
