  • Unique Wooden Greetings Cards by Proper Goose

    We are always extremely pleased to hear about what our customers make from the timber we supply to them. We were particularly interested to hear from a small creative company, based in the Surrey suburb of Hampton Court, who transform our thin wood boards into beautifully handcrafted cards and gifts.

    Here are a few words about the company and its products from Martha at Proper Goose . . .

    At Proper Goose we create original, unique greetings cards and gifts which can be personalised simply and easily. You’ll find a range of cards and gifts for all occasions, Birthday Cards, Anniversary Cards, Thank You Cards, Congratulation Cards and many more.

    Whilst we do classic cards, we also create beautiful wooden cards which come with a wooden stand so you can display them proudly on your mantelpiece. Our cards are finished with a satin coating to bring out the natural colour and beauty of the wood. Our wooden cards are packaged in a beautiful white and gold foiled envelope.

    All of our products are lovingly hand-made in our workshop in Hampton Court. All of our wood cards are made from Cherry, Maple or Walnut wood. We have a selection of wooden jewellery cards, which are perfect for a gift as they come with a piece of beautiful sterling silver jewellery.

    We also have a selection of drink cards featuring the most popular drinks such as mojitos, gin & tonic and many more, which are perfect for a cocktail enthusiast.

    Proper Goose are exhibiting their lovely handcrafted cards and gifts for the first time at the Handmade Show in Hampton Court in September. We wish them all the best and hope the show is a great success for them.

  • Racking up some more changes

    The next phase of our expansion continues this week as we have installed some new racking in our extended factory. The project has been undertaken by Pro-Dek of South Yorkshire who have installed a 5m high cantilever racking system, making much better use of the open space.

    With the racking expertly installed, our production department lost no time at all in putting it to good use. The racking will allow correct storage of our timber, and will also enable us to locate and access completed orders quickly and efficiently.
