Sending Cards to the United Kingdom

Sending Cards to the United Kingdom
Cardly helps you send amazing greeting cards to friends and family in the UK without leaving the comfort of home. Our solution combines a selection of incredible designs with some neat technology, allowing you to craft a personal, handwritten message complete with fun doodles. We then print and post your card from our UK operation, helping to ensure it gets to your recipient as quickly as possible.

Stay Connected with the United Kingdom

We're here to help you stay connected with beautiful, unique cards posted locally in the UK - regardless of where you are in the world. Best of all, because your card is posted locally within the UK with a first class stamp, Royal Mail provides next business day delivery in 95% of cases.

Cardly prints and posts from Kent each business day and if you place your order before 10am GMT Mon-Fri we'll make sure your card is produced and in the mail that same day.

One of the great advantages of posting locally is that it completely eliminates sending via airmail to UK recipients. Not only does this mean your card arrives faster and in better condition, it's also much better for the planet! We're passionate about the environment and we strongly believe in leaving things in a better state than when we started. Our Plant-A-Tree program sees us plant 5 trees for everyone 100 cards sent via our site. That equates to planting roughly 50 trees for every tree used in the production of our cards and envelopes!

Amazing Quality & Incredible Designs

Our cards are great value - sending to a card to the UK is just $4.95 USD ($6.95 AUD), inclusive of first class postage. We'll send your card in a beautiful kraft envelope, complete with a real stamp - and the address will use the same handwriting style as your card for maximum authenticity. The final product is a gorgeous card that looks as though you'd written and posted it yourself!

We'll also save you time and money since you don't need to go to the shops to pick from a limited selection of cards, write your message, then go out again to post it (or, even worse - line up at the post office to send it!). Posting locally also means far cheaper postage costs and a much faster and more reliable delivery time. You can be absolutely confident that you’re sending a high quality card through a service that cares about the environment.

Cardly is incredibly proud of having cultivated an amazing and vibrant independent artist community that we've hand-picked to offer their designs on our site. Our artists hail from all over the world, encompassing a wide variety of backgrounds, interests and styles, meaning you're very likely to find the perfect card. Together, they've contributed an incredible selection of over 8,000 cards you can send to the UK for all occasions. With so many different styles and aesthetics you're sure to find the perfect card for a birthday, Christmas, congratulations, new baby, wedding or many other occasions.

It's very easy to create a card and is exceptional value for money! It sure saves postage and "travelling time." Thank you Cardly, for offering an international service!
