NEW DESIGNS AND PRICES

We have recently revamped our website, making it super customer-friendly! We aim to continually provide you with designs that we think your friends and family will love! In order to assure quality, stay competitive, and realize our vision, we now offer 50% discounts to retailers and other groups buying wholesale (1oo cards or more), and even greater discounts for orders of 1000 cards or more. Furthermore, we have started offering % commission to Sales Reps for successful sales made. If you would like to sell our cards and earn money from doing so, whilst at the same time directly creating employment for orphaned youth, please contact us at info@cardsfromafrica.com! REMEMBER : Custom cards are always an option too! All shipping orders over US$10/£5 is free, to anywhere in the world!
Ordering from CfA is hassle free!

 

 

 

FAIR TRADE
We are delighted to have recently received accreditation from the Fair Trade Federation in the United States, and also to become a member of the IFAT. We are currently applying for the fair trade mark to put on the back of all our cards and other products.

 

 

 

NEW YORK STATIONERY SHOWa.jpg
Just last week we made our first appearance at the Stationery Show in New York City, exhibit our cards among some of the best in the industry. We enjoyed meeting all those who stopped by our booth and saw our handcrafted cards firsthand. Over 4000 exhibitors were there, with at least 13,000 visitors from all over the world. Over 100,000 shops retail greeting cards in the U.S., and now, because of the show, 14 are about to start selling ours! This is great news, only another 99,986 to go! Our special thanks go to three friends of CfA, Ken Feeley, Jimmy Quach and Jacob Bryant for their input into the show!

 

 

 

 

CfA PROMOTIONAL VIDEO
As we write this, the final editing touches are being made on two short (5min) marketing videos that we’ve produced for Cards cfa waving largefrom Africa. Aimed at two different markets - the high-street retail shops and the church - we highlight who we are, how we make the hand-made paper, which we incorporate into our cards, and the difference that Cards from Africa makes in the lives of the orphaned youth we employ. Copies will be available for purchase soon! Please email us at info@cardsfromafrica.com if you would like to reserve a copy. We will let you know when the videos are available for purchase. $10
