Caroline Gardner trained at Chelsea College of Art and initially worked as a painter. She started designing greetings cards in the 1990s after receiving a commission for a small range from a Tokyo-based art gallery. The cards were an instant success and Caroline's eponymous company was formed shortly afterwards.
Now based in offices overlooking the river Thames in West London, Caroline Gardner Publishing supplies not only birthday and christmas cards but also greetings cards for every special moment in life, from christening cards to sympathy cards, and also stunning wrapping papers, stationery and gifts. Caroline's quirky yet sophisticated designs are brought to life by employing little-used traditional printing techniques, such as letter press and die stamping, interpreted in a very modern way.
