About Us

We live in a world where we want to share emotions, give thanks, show we care and tell someone how much we love them – and so, Cardies was born in 1977. Starting off as a small shop, selling greeting cards, we empowered people to show their love by giving a special message in the form of a card or a gift. The demand for beautiful words and verses grew and overnight Cardies exploded into South Africa, providing means to express love, gratitude and appreciation towards the ones you love and care about.
We are in the relationship business and we stand for improved human interaction and loving relationships. We promote family values, love relationships and interaction with friends and acquaintances. In 2015 we took our caring to the next level. We partnered up with the National Council of SPCA’s to assist them in improving the relationships between animals and people. We are now their formal retail partners and together we’re not only striving to make the world a better place for people, but for all life forms on the planet.
