Monkey Nuts Designs is a graduate business which was set up in the beginning of 2009 after we decided that we wanted to take our passion for designing greeting cards and create a business that we could be proud of.
We have certainly achieved this and one of the key elements of our business that we get the most enjoyment from, is that we are able to be part of such a magnificent exchange between people. Sending a card to a friend or loved one is such a wonderful example of love and we are delighted to be part this positive act.
Our cards are handmade in every sense of the word. We even measure and cut the card that is used on your card front by hand! Our cards have been truly handmade for you, with love, care and consideration. This makes them such a wonderful gift for someone that you care about.
At Monkey Nuts Designs, we want you to have the most fantastic shopping experience possible, where all of your expectations are exceeded. Our aim is to provide you with high class, stylish greeting cards that the recipient(s) will want to treasure forever.
Focus on us...
We share our lives with our adorable cat 'Danny' who we adopted on Christmas Eve 2009 from the RSPCA Sheffield Animal Centre, and our cat 'Ben' who adopted us in spring 2010.
There is a large family of collared doves, finches, wood pigeons, and squirrels that feed in our beautiful garden and they are such a pleasure to watch.
We are both passionate vegetarians and ensure that the materials used on our cards do not include materials such as bird feathers, natural pearls or shells.
Greeting card experience...
We have been designing greeting cards since 2000 so we have many years of experience and expertise.
Interesting fact about Monkey Nuts Designs...
'Monkey Nuts' is an amazing little chap (one of our squirrels), who lives in the trees at the end of our garden. He goes through a huge amount of nuts each day and to us he is part of the family. He is the inspiration for the name of our business!
What makes our business the success that it is?
Customer service is the most important aspect of any business. We pride ourselves on responding to emails as soon as possible and that throughout the entire process of a customer's transaction, our aim is to keep things as upbeat and friendly as possible. To put it simply, we value our customers. Our dedication to perfection across the board means that your experience will make you want to come back to us again and again.
One of the most common theme in terms of feedback from customers has been that people find our designs even more beautiful when they receive them that they did when ordering on the website. This is wonderful and it shows that we are doing something right. Greeting cards of a high standard really are worth paying for, that goes for most things in life too.
