It all started when a friend received 10 of the same 21st birthday cards....
Hi, I'm Alex and I'm the Director of Creative Popcards. I like to call myself the Director of Happiness as it's my mission to put smiles on the faces of people across the globe through our beautiful pop-up cards.
I'm originally from the Dong Nai province of Vietnam and I moved to New Zealand in 2010 to study at Massey University. I quickly fell in love with the Land of the Long White Cloud and I'm very proud to call New Zealand my home.
I coined the idea of designing and creating a greetings card with a difference in 2012 when my friend received 10 of the same birthday cards for her 21st birthday!! I couldn't believe that there were so few extra special cards on the market in New Zealand and made it my mission to design a range of cards that were unique, offered something really special and would enrich people’s relationships, culture, and bring love to all messages.
For some moments in life there are no words, just... A Beautiful Surprise.
Today we have over 200 pop up card designs available to purchase online or at a variety of locations across the country. We've got cards that are ideal for all occasions from birthdays, graduations, weddings, births, Christmas and more. We also have a whole range of Kiwiana inspired cards that are ideal memories of New Zealand.
Our intricate popup cards are designed by one of our three designers on cutting edge software, laser cut, then hand-crafted using the asian art form of sliceform kirigami to form a beautiful object that can be kept for years to come.
All of our popup cards are put together by hand in Vietnam on our own production line. We are proud to employ 20 people from my hometown to assemble our cards and will continue to strive to create jobs for people in the local area as we grow.
