We all bulk-buy most of our Christmas cards - but there are usually a few people for whom we like to find something different. That’s what you’ll find here. There’s nothing glittery, cliched, crude, over-sentimental (or over-priced !) on … just good British wit from Splimple’s current card ranges, as well as our back-catalogue and from other publishers who we really like.

Hey – we’re British and we all like a good moan, particular at Christmas. And face it – there’s plenty to moan about!
