The story so far...

I have been designing greetings cards for my entire working career, and it has become my lifelong passion. Having previously worked with major publishers on many varied projects, I have gained an insight into the whole greetings card industry. Creating the characters of ‘Elliot and Buttons’ and ‘Lots of Woof’ for UKG proved to be very successful, and I felt that the time was right to take the next exciting step into publishing my own work... and 'Ginger Betty' was born.

All of my designs are hand-painted and are inspired by my love of fashion, nature and all things quirky. I’m hoping to capture a sentiment and a personal touch to engage directly with the purchaser with my designs.

A family affair...

The company is a joint venture between myself and my husband Pete - who's great on the mac! and makes the 'mac-magic' happen - formatting and setting the designs up for print, and dropping on those important finishing touches... we are a great team, and just love working together!

Where did the name come from? you may ask...

Well it's simple really... when our daughter was just two years old she was given a small rag doll with woolly ginger hair, which she hugged and loved, and took absolutely everywhere with her - she called this liitle doll 'Ginger Betty'. Our daughter had the habit of throwing Betty out of her pram whenever we weren't looking, losing her on numerous occassions - we were forever looking for Betty... so when we were thinking of a name for our new card company, it coincided with our daughter planning to leave home for university - 'Ginger Betty' just seemed to be the perfect choice for our publishing venture!
