Carte Blanche Greetings was founded by Stephen Haines on October 1st 1987 on a dream and a collection of just 12 greeting cards. Thirty years on, Carte Blanche Group is now an international creator, distributor and licensor of character-branded products, including greeting cards, toys, gifts, apparel and homeware.
Design and innovation is the very core of our business and as well as growing and nurturing the Me to You brand and its cute signature character, Tatty Teddy, Carte Blanche now boasts award winning humour brand, Violent Veg, Sentiment brand, Wishing Well Studios and a fast-paced trend, led offering from Hotchpotch Publishing.
A creative spark flows through everything we do, from the way we create our wonderful products and designs to the way we manage our supply chain using inventive new solutions.
