    Origamo’s energetic MD, Furio Ceciliato, and marketeer, Jeremy Corner, met a few years ago when the former began distributing Blue Eyed Sun cards in Italy. Both share a passion for marketing and are looking forward to working together on replicating the massive success of the Italian brand in the Italy here in the UK. Find out more in the video below:

    Furio featured on The Greeting Card Project, a YouTube channel created by Jeremy to promote greeting cards, retailers and innovative greeting card publishers. Jeremy visited Milan to understand the Italian card market and how Blue Eyed Sun and Origamo cards sold so well in a country not renown for card sending. You can watch the episode below:

    The UK debut of Origamo will include a delightful collection of new handmade Disney cards in collaboration with licensing specialists Pronao. These magical cards, which take up to forty minutes each to make, are available in the company's signature PopUp and Quilling ranges.

    You can see all the products first and meet Furio himself at the official launch on Stand 4A01 at the front of Hall 4 at Spring Fair.
