Trade & Wholesale

Cardtoons Publications is a publishing company based near Kirkby Lonsdale on the edge of Cumbria, Lancashire and the Yorkshire Dales. We have been in business since 1985, supplying hundreds of retailers across the North of England with postcards, greetings cards and other gift items. Our best known ranges include Lap Maps, Country Comicals and Northern Views. We are also one of the few postcard publishers left in the country!

If you're looking to stock gift ranges in your shop or retail offering then please take a look at our large (over 1,500 items) product range and see if there's something for you. You can always give us a call or send us a message to discuss your needs. We are very happy to advise on what we feel may be the right products for you. If the website is a bit daunting then download our trade catalogues; we can post one out to you free of charge if you prefer.

We offer point of sale, display stands, flexible terms, high quality customer service as well as honest advice on the right products for you.
