The boxes are made from a sturdy cardboard, covered in lovely textured stucco white paper and embellished with machine embroidered applique, matching ribbon and personalised.
Size of the boxes are 22 x 22 cm square and come with a top lid and base.

This year we introduced a personalised and corporate Christmas card design service which has proved to be over whelming to say the least. So far, we've taken orders from the likes of solicitors, garden centres, letting agents and hairdressers! Its been a bit of a learning curve trying to adjust companies logos and signatures to our cards, but we got there in the end. A big selection of personalised Christmas cards are on our NOTHS shop which is hotting up by the day. Above are some of the images that we have created and personalised for our lovely customers.

I thought i'd give you all a quick update as to whats been happening in the studio this month. Other than finishing off a couple of wedding orders, i've been super busy organising and booking my next trade show (which I've finally done....horaaaay!), sourcing different boards and printers for our new spring season ranges, also working on some bespoke Eid Cards designs for one of our very good wholesale customers (pictured above).
The range is very much based on Morrocon tiles (some of which I've been collecting since my first trip to Marrakech), others I've photographed whilst I was out there last spring. Overall I designed a range of 8 cards and I'll be adding more to this collection later on next year when it will be available to all.

A few months ago, I was approached by a lovely couple to design their wedding day staionary. Their brief was short and simple. 'luxurious & sophisticated' is what they asked for. So after showing them a few design options, this is what I came up with.
Smooth electric blue velvet fabric bound on a thick board with heavily embossed silver glitter accross the centre.

We're getting ready for the spring already in the studio and here is a sneaky peak of one of our designs for spring 2012. There are 18 designs in total, (still haven't decided on a name for the range) but plenty of time for that! All cards are printed on a beautiful soft textured linen board and embellished with the highest quality crystal gems.

Today's eid card is a personal favourite of mine, taken from the 'Glitzy Felt' range of eid greetings.
This range, which was launched last summer has become our fastest selling eid card range. For those of you who have been reading my posts regularly will know that due to last years success,this year we added new fonts and colours to this glittery range and the response has been absolutely phenomenal.
I've already got tons of new ideas in my head, and most definitely we'll be adding new designs to this range next year. Watch this space!!

Today's eid card caption reads; 'to my husband on Eid, which is part of our new relations eid card collection. It is extremely difficult to find specific relation eid cards in the market. and as a greeting card publisher, we are constantly reminded of the lack of them. With this in mind we have recently designed and created a range of gorgeous eid cards with captions for mother, father, parents, sister, brother, husband, wife and dear friend.

Arab font - contemporary eid cards by Sabah Designs
This year we have tweaked and modified our bestselling 'festive glitz' collection of Eid Cards by changing some of the fonts aswell as the back cover. After many comments and constructive customer feedback, we decided that white backing board would be the best option in terms of finish and definitely enhances the overall eid card design. Here are a few photos of the collection I took last week in the New Forest. Hope you like them!

A couple of months ago we were asked by a very lovely retailer to design and produce a complete range of 'pink' milstone cards, photo albums and keepsake boxes for their new 'just pink' online gift shop.
Apparently they were so well recieved that they completely sold out of there 21', 30' and 40' age cards in the first week of stocking them! They have are now placed their second order and we have also agreed to design a printed version of the sequin designs.

I hope everyone had a relaxing bank holiday weekend. Well as you may well know, I have been away for the past 5 weeks and although I've been back nearly 2 weeks now, I still had not quite got into 'work mode' until the bank holiday weekend hit me with an astounding amount of orders that I was not expecting!
Most of them are personnalised orders which I shall be working on over the two next weeks, however I managed to pick and pack the above orders which are now ready for the post office.
N.B: More regular blogs posts will follow......... I promise!
