Card Factory launches first ever Christmas Campaign with Stacey Solomon & Joe Swash


Taylor Herring has teamed with up leading British card brand, Card Factory, on their first ever Christmas campaign, Festive Family Photocards. The agency was tasked with devising a big impact creative for Card Factory’s most important sales period – the festive season – and identified the rising trend of personalised family Christmas cards.

To allow everyone to join in with the festivities, Card Factory are launching pop-up festive photoshoots in stores up and down the country, offering families the chance to have their very own celebrity inspired family Christmas Card photoshoot. Customers can create their cards online, or by simply popping into the nearest participating store. Whilst in store, they will be able to choose from an array of photo backgrounds and festive props, before having their portrait taken by a professional photographer. Each family Christmas card is finished with a personalised message before being printed and delivered directly to the customer’s home.

Well-loved British TV personalities Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash and family – including new baby Rex – were asked to bring the launch to life. The family were invited to create their own Christmas card with Card Factory and have revealed it today along with behind the scenes video content from the shoot.

Glyn Williams, Customer and Digital Director at Card Factory, said: “Christmas is our most important trading period and we’re delighted that this year we’ve been able to make it the most special yet for our customers. The Festive Family Photocard service was created to give every Card Factory customer the opportunity to take a proper family portrait – we want every customer to #MakeItATradition.”
