Our Story

Welcome to rdShopBox             which has been

created as an offshoot from our main company,

 Thumbnail Media where we share, celebrate and

 sell the work of our talented Member Artists. Thumbnail was founded in 2005 and is a Cottage Industry, husband and wife Partnership, set up originally as an Art Services company to provide printing for Artists.  We now have two further websites, one for our Trade customers and the other for general Private Sales.

What is

CardShopBox        allows anyone with an interest in Art, or even just somebody who is simply trying to raise funds, either for their own purposes or for charitable causes, to purchase their own beautiful Micro Shop and sell Art Cards to make a profit.  

We offer a Starter Pack which includes a flat pack

 4 tier display rack with labels which can be personalised for a small additional cost.

We run regular Pop-Up Shops at UK

Art outlets, events, markets and Craft Fairs.

Our stand features the work of our Talented

Member Artists, printed as beautiful Art Cards

and Prints. Profits from all sales are shared with

 the Creators of the work. We now offer their

work here at CardShopBox as a way for more

people to have access to their creations and by selling it in this way we are all helping to raise the profile of Independent Art in the UK.

Please note, you will need to ask permission

if you wish to reproduce a Charity or

Business Logo onto your CardShopBox,

so please ensure this has been approved

officially before asking us for personalised labelling.

Once your CardShopBox        begins to make sales,

you may wish to re-stock it with fresh card designs and this can be done either by purchasing a Refill Pack of the same 100 cards, or by ordering in

sixes from our Trade Shop to top your shop up

more gradually.
