Established in 2004, The Card Gallery is based in the lovely historic market town of Bridgnorth, Shropshire. The company is based in a stunning Grade II Listed building right next to the river Severn.

All of our products are designed and ‘Made in Britain’.
Lisa Forde, the company director, employs a small team of full-and-part-time staff, all of whom are passionate about what they do. The team are highly trained across all areas of the business, but each specialise in one department.
