Breaking News!

Our Morning Mr Magpie range will soon be available from Paperchase
Happy thoughts are fluttering around the butterfly house today as this will be our fifth collection to grace the shelves of the high street favourite. So pleased!

Morning Mr Magpie

125 x 125 mm, blank inside, cello wrapped with a recycled brown fleck envelope.

Always elegant in its appearance, this iconic member of the Corvidae family is believed to be one of the most intelligent and expressive of all birds (and animals). It is known for its cognitive behaviour patterns such as being very strategic and organised, as well as having the ability of self-recognition. It is also known to imitate human sounds.

In British Folklore,  the lone magpie is associated with bad luck, sorrow or grief. As a result of this superstition we are encouraged to salute the bird with the traditional greeting of “Good Morning Mr Magpie” as a mark of respect and to ward of misfortune,

Here at Symetria we like to view this incredible creature with a less somber association; we are celebrating the Magpie as one of the only birds we actually take the time to greet.

In celebrating the greeting of the magpie, and in keeping with the occasions on which people send cards to one another, we feel this version of the well-known poem is an apt choice for a greetings card collection.

One for sorrow
Two for joy
Three for a girl
Four for a boy
Five for silver
Six for gold
Seven for a secret ready to be told
Eight for a wish,
Nine for a kiss,
Ten for a time of joyous bliss.

New cards...

...of the business variety,  fresh off the press for PG Live.

Launching at Progressive Greetings Live next month!

125 x 125 mm, blank inside, cello wrapped with a recycled brown fleck envelope.

Inspired by their quirky titles and wonderful packaging design, our latest greetings card series,
‘Plonk’ is a tribute to our fascination with the wine bottle. With 14 designs in the range this is a
 must for foodies, wine lovers and for any celebratory occassion.

Continuoulsy changing and developing over time, a good bottle can pack a big personality.
It’s particulary deep and meaningful, permeating it’s surroundings with romanticism and charm.
Cultured and refined, it's bold rich charisma effortlessly matures with age, complimenting others with it’s intense aromas and flavour combinations.

An evening shared with the elegant drop can also be quite a messy affair so be prepared for it to unexpectently make it’s mark!

A little less minimal than our usual efforts this range still has the Symetria signature splashed all over it, with some of the designs even spilling over to the back cover.
