Cath Tate Cards and Covid-19
UPDATE: March 25th, 2020: temporary closure
Unfortunately, we are now at the point where our warehouse has to close. We will no longer be sending out orders as of today. We’re aware that you too have also had to close the doors to your business. We face some challenging months ahead but we hope that when this is all over we can all come back fighting!
We’ll be back as soon as it’s safe to do so, and as we’re now going to have a bit more time on our hands, we can focus on what we do best - producing hilarious, witty and wise greetings cards – so we’ll be back with a lot to show you!
If you have any concerns about existing orders, please email us.
If you're running an online store which is still trading, see our Resources for Retailers page for information on getting images or product information for your online store.
UPDATE: March 19th, 2020
Due to the office currently being largely unmanned we are moving to having personal web orders being dispatched by the warehouse. Unfortunately, during this transition there may be a slight delay in delivery or some items may not be able to be supplied. We ask that you please allow a few days extra for delivery of your package. Should you place an order and not receive notice via email that your order has been shipped with 2-3 days, please do contact us with your order number and we will look into it. Should any items not be able to be supplied, we will, of course, refund you the relevant amount via the payment method used at checkout. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Trade orders remain unaffected by this change.
March 17th, 2020
As with everyone during these uncertain times, Cath Tate Cards is carrying on but still taking it day by day.
Currently, we are trading as usual and we hope this remains the case. Both trade and direct web orders are still being dispatched daily.
We will update this page regularly should the situation change.
Extended payment terms for independent customers
In light of the uncertainty the caronavirus is creating — especially for independent businesses — we at Cath Tate Cards think this is a time to stick together ... even while we're staying apart.
For this reason, we would like to support our independent customers by extending our payment terms to 60 days for any orders placed during the next three months (beginning March 17th, 2020).
We hope this helps and look forward to seeing you and your businesses happy and healthy on the other side.
