Greeting card groupies and gift givers, your time to rejoice has come! Not only has The Royal Exchange card shop reopened, but it also has a fabulously friendly new management team, an incredible range of collections in stock, and a brand new name; Paper Kisses of Manchester.

The card shop in The Royal Exchange has become something of a Manchester institution over the years, and has been the favourite go-to place for many of us in need of a gorgeous greeting card or perfect present. So, naturally, a ripple of panic ran across the city when lockdown lifted but the doors to the card shop in The Royal Exchange remained shut.

Fortunately, good things come to those who wait,  and the delayed opening was due to the preparation of a whole host of shoppers delights.  The card store windows were blanked out to stop the surprise being spoiled but, finally, the shop is open so we’re able to spill the beans!

First things first, the Paper Kisses of Manchester shop floor has undergone a mega makeover and it looks phenomenal. The card store has had a total refit and has been completely opened up, creating much more space for customers to leisurely – and safely – browse.

Paper Kisses of Manchester still sells all the greeting card and gift ranges that you know and love; plus lots of beautiful new collections of, as its sign says, ‘wonderful things’.

Whatever the occasion, Paper Kisses of Manchester caters for it.  The incredibly knowledgeable new management are always on hand to help you in any way they can, be that by giving gift advice, answering questions about card collections, or even sourcing specific stock requests.

We’re also very excited to announce that Paper Kisses of Manchester are a stockist of Santoro!  (If you know, you know.  And if you don’t know, you need to visit Paper Kisses of Manchester!).

Paper Kisses of Manchester sells stunning gifts from premium collections and design-led brands including Disney Traditions, Peter Rabbit, and Beatrix Potter.  The store also has a huge selection of the fabulous Jellycat range. Other favourites stocked by the relaunched Royal Exchange Arcade card shop include Top Model, Amelia Art Glass items, East of India word plaques, The Wild Things Swarovski crystals, and Gracee Jewellery.

So next time you’re looking for that perfect card or gift, take a meander along the Arcade and pop inside Paper Kisses of Manchester.  We promise that you’ll get a very warm welcome . . .and will be spoilt for choice!
