All About Karenza Paperie
Unbelievably we launched Karenza Paperie in March 2011. After 18 months research we were ready to go! With an old table to work from, one box of stock and our own hand built website. We have come a long way since then and we have over one hundred suppliers and thousands of customers here in the UK and overseas.
In 2016 I took the very hard decision to leave Amazon as a marketplace seller after 5 years as I decided that sadly being part of a large corporation with new rules was not for us. I am far happier now as I can focus on the cards I love the most and the personal service I like to offer all of my wonderful customers. Maybe an email offering assistance, or a handwritten note or a complimentary card enclosed with an order. My customers, stock and business on my terms.
Now... we are still in Kent but have moved four times - we purchased our first home just prior to lockdown so all of the orders are picked and packed by me in our new home office in Ashford, Kent.
A tremendous thank you to all of our customers, if you have been with us from the start or if you are trying us out for the very first time! During lockdown we have had an enormous number of new customers so I hope you will all continue to shop with us, I have followed the trends with the new customer purchases and have lots of new cards available in slightly different styles and price ranges than normal. They have all still been handpicked by me, as always.
And finally..... why Karenza? Well as a homage to my south western roots, Karenza is a Cornish word meaning Love.... what could be more apt!
Love Karenza x
