Isle of Social is my personal project, coming from the Isle of Man and knowing all its special quirks I realised there was nothing bespoke in terms of greetings cards on the market.
I created a range of 12 cards that were immediately picked up but retailers all over the island and so I set up an online Etsy shop to be able to sell to Manx people who lives all over the world. To date I have sold cards as far as Australia and Vancouver.
Isle of Social currently has 12 Isle of Man Stockists who stock the whole range and a further two who stock seasonal cards.
Last year the artwork was picked up and shown on BBC news for an article on colloquial words making it into the Dictionary. Below that is an article written on Isle of Social by local new site ‘Get the Mongoose’ and its success on the Island.
