About Us

Who we are:

The boss - Helen

With three children under five, Helen’s life wasn’t hectic enough, so she set up CocoCards in September 2008.

Before motherhood took over her life, Helen was a project manager for a major multi national. Deciding to side-step long hours away from home, she is now dedicated to her children (and to CocoCards of course).

The idea for CocoCards came about when Helen wanted to buy original, stylish, high-quality invitations for her childrens' parties. There was just nothing on the high street that met her needs.


The talented one - Allie

Allie is a watercolour artist based in Cheshire, who works with CocoCards to create wonderful and unique designs. She has two young children and is a govenor at her children's school, in addition to being one of those mothers who always has a freshly cooked batch of biscuits waiting for the kids when they get home.

The printers - Spiral Colour

Our team at Spiral Colour go to great lengths to ensure that all my cards are perfect, Spiral Colour are based in Macclesfield Cheshire.

Why Cococards is so different

We are different because we offer a truly personalised service, as well as a personalised product. To us, ‘personalised’ means much more than simply creating space for you to add your personal details to a standard design. It means:

·       You can ask us to change colours, fonts and other small details – or even to create a new design especially for you.

·       Where the design includes wording, you can choose to keep this as it is, or change the message completely.

·       Designs can be adapted for different occasions – we can create, for example, baby announcement cards, thank you cards and christening cards all based on the same theme.

·       There’s no automated production line – your order will be processed and perfected by one of the designers in our small team.

·       We crop and resize photos – and if we feel a different photo would be more suitable, we’ll get back to you to suggest an alternative design.

·       You get as many email proofs as it takes. We don’t print until you’re completely happy with what you see. Record number of proofs so far? 17.

·       Cards are carefully-printed by professional printers, here in Macclesfield, using good-quality paper and card from FSC-approved sustainable sources.

·       Every order is individually checked, before being beautifully-wrapped and posted out to you – usually within just a few days of you contacting us.

If you have any queries at any time, simply email us and we will be happy to help.
