Looking for a new and exciting business opportunity?

Consider becoming a Franchisee with our established and successful brand!

What we do

Want to run your own greetings cards business but don’t know where to start?

Earn £50,000+ per year from the £1.5 billion greetings card industry.


What do we do?

We carefully plan retailers in-store greetings cards displays so that the right card is available for the right occasion at the right price – whatever the season or special occasion.

That’s why our business is called Plan-it Cards!

Through our Franchise network we visit thousands of retailers monthly up and down the country to remerchandise their displays and replenish stocks with the latest designs and seasonal products and collect the revenue for stock sold from the store.

We work with a number of well-established independent customers e.g., petrol stations, post offices, convenience stores (independent and symbol), chemists, hospital shops, garden centres, newsagents and more.

With Plan-it Cards the retailer only pays for what they sell. For the retailer there is no stock write off, no initial outlay, and an immediate profit with no financial risk.

Following our system our Franchisees are able to open up, establish and grow new business more quickly.

All our products are designed and manufactured in the UK to exacting standards of quality and always represent great value to consumers.

We have a clear vision to provide a personal service through a Franchise network for greater success.

We continue to invest in new products and designs, making continuous improvements to our systems to maintain the highest quality in everything they do.

Everyday is a birthday

Why Greetings Cards?

Sending a Greetings Card is as popular as ever and is expected to remain so. Every day is a Birthday so why not consider being part of the £1.5 billion annual greeting card market?

Over 90% of greetings cards are still bought in physical bricks and mortar shops with a broad selection of retailers adding greeting cards into their stores.

Despite growth in digital forms of communication such as texts, social media or emails, cards remain the preferred choice when it comes to expressing a heartfelt personal message and making someone feel extra special.
