It may have been a different century but our philosophy back in 1998 is the same as it is today. All we have ever wanted to do is create refreshingly distinctive stuff. Unique and beautiful designs for stationery and greeting cards. Above all we have always wanted to be different. Life would be very boring if we all followed like sheep.

Each Five Dollar Shake design is uniquely made in it's entirety in the UK. We are immensely proud of our mini 'army' of trained Sussex based staff. Many of whom painstakingly make up each card by hand with extreme dexterity and skill. Sausage fingers need not apply!
Each crystal stone, sequin, bow, trinket ~ in fact, all our wonderful components that go to make up each design are carefully sourced from around the world. Every product on these pages are made from card from sustainable and renewable forests and each envelope is F.S.C (www.fsc.org) approved.Hopefully this little slice of cyberspace will give you some idea of what we are trying to do! Our aim is to excite you, in the hope that your customers will come back for more award winning Five Dollar Shake stationery, again and again.

Please remember the majority of our designs are 3D therefore the images on this site have been taken from the cards themselves ~ and are even more beautiful up close.
