Abacus Cards: Improve your card sales with BBC household names


Capture greater sales from ‘Fans’ of these three legendary BBC television programs.


These very special greeting cards are supported by a huge UK fan base following the decades of programming by the British Broadcasting Corporation, they are all ‘household’ names and watched weekly by millions of avid fans and followers.


BBC Springwatch a stunning photographic collection capturing nature at its best, featuring stunning shots of British wildlife. BBC Springwatch first hit our TV screens in 2005 and had been a huge hit in Spring, Autumn and Winter ever since! 18 years on our televisions.


BBC Gardeners’ World a striking collection of photographic garden-themed cards inspired by the longstanding TV programme. Presented in a square format, the designs feature

 elevant information, facts, or gardening tips on the reverse of each card. BBC Gardeners’ world first hit our screens in 1968! That’s 55 years of BBC programming and gardening excellence for gardening fans.


BBC Countryfile, a range of stunning, country-themed photographic cards inspired by the BBC TV programme. Each design features interesting information on the reverse of the card, written by the Countryfile team. BBC Countryfile hit our screens in 1988 so that’s 35 years of programming promoting country, farming, produce and more! Creating a huge fan base that the TV show now even has physical country shows across the UK!


The full collection and display stand is only available exclusively from Abacus Cards. We launch fresh new bestsellers every six months to ensure your sales and interest from your customers is high. Our nationwide area manager team offer UK wide full support.


What our customers say;

“Animal cards already sell well for us. However, sales of the BBC Springwatch brand are significantly higher than others in this type of card.”


“One of our best-selling spinners. Customers often pick up four or five designs at a time...great price too!”

  • All our cards are printed in the UK in Nottingham and distributed from Suffolk keeping our carbon footprint low.
