Caroline Gardner is an admired indie greeting card and stationery designers in the United Kingdom. Ms Gardener was trained at Chelsea College of Art and started her working career as a painter, started designing cards almost two decades ago after receiving a commission for a small range from a Tokyo based art gallery, through a friend of hers, Yvonna Demczynska. The cards were a hit making Caroline an international success straight away. Her eponymous Company was formed soon after.
Caroline's uses little used traditional printing techniques to make her cute yet detailed designs, such as letter press and die stamping. That doesn't mean that her designs are at all retro, they are interpreted in a very modern way. The cards have become extremely loyal and are not only instantly recognisable but also highly sought after internationally.
