When "a video call just doesn't cut it", trustwordie featured in Independent Weekend Magazine's Hotlist

Delighted our cards made the Hotlist in the Independent's Bank Holiday weekend magazine.  "Sometimes a video call just doesn't cut it, and this is where the joy of receiving written communication in the post comes in. Joy Redmond of quirky greeting-card range Trustwordie says she had mixed feelings about producing greeting cards for the times we're living in.
