Our Debut Range

8 designs in the debut Christmas Range were launched at Autumn Fair NEC.

Yesterday, I was having a massive office clear out and whilst emptying out some storage boxes, I stumbled across these cards. I designed these christmas cards for our very first trade show in Autumn 2004. As I was fairly new to the industry (and quite naive) I exhibited with just 52 designs and the card ranges did not even have names!
I remember driving up to the NEC in Birmingham for the show thinking to myself that if I get two orders I'd be happy with myself. Little did I know that by the end of the week I'd be driving back home with a big grin on my face and an order book filled with orders not only from around UK, but also from a distributor in America and a posh department store in Japan. So that was the begining of Sabah Designs!!!
Although the company and designs have evolved in so many ways since then (we try to learn something new everyday!!), the ethos has remained the same. We thrive in creating unique and individual greeting cards and offer the friendliest service possible.

The art of henna

As it was the festival of Eid-ul-Adha last Friday, I tried to put my artistic talent to good use and...... this is the result!!
My two daughters Zainab and Aneesa were very pleased the next morning when they washed off their henna and unveiled their brightly coloured patterns to me, which so happen to match their pretty outfits !!
Hope everybody out there celebrating Eid had a good one too.
