About The Original Poster Company Franchise
Since 1991, OPC has been producing ranges of greetings cards, wrap, bags and displays, distributing them through a franchise network to a variety of independent retailers and national groups around the World using the sale or return (consignment) method, (the retailer only pays for what he sells).
The greeting cards market is now worth over £1.7 billion per annum in the UK alone with online sites sharing only around 5% of this market, (GCA 2016). The convenience market now represents a year-on-year increase of 5.1% and social and economic changes are still helping to drive this channel (IGD).
It's a simple yet proven business model. Call us today and start working for yourself and not by yourself.
We have several Resale business opportunities available across UK.
At OPC we produce many millions of greeting cards and envelopes per year, so it's important we take an environmentally responsible attitude to the paper we use.
There are many misleading claims made on the back of greeting cards, such as: "from sustainable forests" and "one tree planted for every tree cut down" which are meaningless. FSC accreditation is the only respected international standard in use and in August 2007, after testing several materials, we became one of the first UK publishers to switch all greeting cardboard to FSC accredited stock.
We have also switched all of our envelopes to FSC accredited paper.
About the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)
The FSC is an international, non-governmental organisation promoting responsible management of the world's forests. It was founded in 1993 in response to public concern about deforestation and demand for a trustworthy wood-labelling scheme.
There are now national working groups in 28 countries including the UK. FSC UK is a registered charity supported by WWF, Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth and the Woodland Trust.
FSC Chain of Custody accreditation means the product can be traced all the way back to a well-managed forest.
