I'm sure you've been receiving all those emails from companies asking you to opt-in to their mailing list again, we certainly have and I'm sure that by now you'll have heard of the new EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) that are due to come into force in May 2018. So we're going to tell you straight what we do with your data, it seems simpler that way!
As a small company who only sell on-line we've been overwhelmed, confused and sometimes baffled by the huge amount of 'legalese' surrounding these regulations but it seems to come down to 'transparency', simply letting people know what we do with your data and giving you the option to opt-out if you wish. Something very topical in the light of the recent Facebook revelations.
When you place an order with us we will request certain information from you that allows us to fulfill it quickly and effectively. This will include your name, address, phone number and email address. We will also give you the option to add a separate shipping address and contact details should they differ from the billing details but we do not keep any payment details such as card numbers or Paypal information- ever! Your payments are processed through a secure third party gateway called Braintree which is owned by Paypal.
When you check-out you have the option to de-select the box that opts you in to receiving our Newsletter. To be honest, we don't often produce a Newsletter! Nor to we often send marketing emails in fact it's no more than one or two a year and that's because the nature of our business doesn't often result in return customers. Once you have your wedding favours and gifts it's unlikely you're going to have another one anytime soon so there's no point in sending out emails telling you all about our latest range. If we're lucky some customers will remember us and come back for Christening or Communion favours - guys we love you!
Our website is hosted by a third-party in the U.S. who participate in the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework but we think that the two most important points for you to know are:-
1. We do not sell your personal data to anyone for any reason.
2. We do not buy personal data from anyone for any reason.
In Sussex Valentine's Day is also known as the 'Birds Wedding Day'! Watching them in their Spring plumage attracting mates and building nests reminds us how important it is to support and encourage wildlife; we need the birds and the bees if we are to survive which is why using our eco-friendly plantable paper to [...]
On Christmas Eve around the country excited children will be hanging up their Christmas Stockings ready for Santa to drop down the chimney and deliver their presents.

Everyone loves to receive beautifully wrapped gifts and pretty tags with personalised messages from the giver are an integral part of the experience.

The saying goes that 'Christmas comes but once a year' but the very first Christmas with your new baby comes but once in a lifetime and such an important family milestone should be marked by some special celebrations.

Funeral or memorial favours are a beautiful way for friends and family to remember a loved one, they're also a token of thanks for their love and support at a deeply emotional time when it's often hard to see the beauty around us. That's why our seeded paper memorial cards and bookmarks are an [...]
Musing over a cup of tea yesterday, someone mentioned the increase in demand for gold coloured favours when traditionally most gifts, particularly Christening Favours have been silver. Was this a new trend we wondered? Silver is still the most popular but we've noticed the number of gold and rose gold products from our suppliers has [...]
This is a question we are often asked about our plantable paper and understandably so. When you give guests these eco-friendly favours you want to be sure they will grow into beautiful wildflowers. So firstly, what is seeded paper? Our seeded paper is made from 100% post-consumer waste, that's paper recycled from offices, schools etc. [...]
Anyone who's ever planned a wedding knows that there will always be some last-minute details that have been overlooked and however far in advance you try to plan the Big Day arrives sooner than you think.

We're pleased to announce our new range of Memorial Keepsakes and Favours!
