Dundee Delights a new illustrated greeting cards collection launched on Friday 13th October by designer Louise Kirby giving a fresh and positive image of the city. Louise will place free cards around the city hoping that the finders will send them to friends and family locally and to the far corners of the globe. Louise would love to hear of where they end up be it an Aunty in Australia who loved days at the ferry beach as a child, an old school or university friend in another city that you want to hello to, or invite your granny in Lochee for a coffee and cake.
To share where they end up either email Louise Kirby on firstname.lastname@example.org or #DundeeDelights on Facebook, twitter or Instagram.

Louise Kirby, discussing her collection, said: “I want to create mementos of Dundee for people to share, spread the love and make others smile! I love snail mail and believe it’s important to say ‘hello’ and keep in touch rather than just texting or emailing. I love getting something nice in the post rather than the bills and junk mail.”
