Happy Birthday You Fabulous Fucker

Happy Birthday You Fabulous Fucker

This is by far one of my favourite birthday cards and is one of my best sellers. I love it when I get to print the messages on the inside because you guys absolutely love this card and I often imagine you’re laughing when you’re ordering!

I decided a while back that I would create cards that would shock but also make you laugh and since then I’ve gone from strength to strength. Of course I’ve had ups and downs and had to adapt to censorship but then I thought ‘fuck it’, people love swearing and those who don’t, well they’re not my customer!’

The etymology of the word ‘Fuck’ is quite interesting as it was often omitted from the early dictionaries when they were being compiled. Even Johnson left out this fruity word! It was even an offence to have it published according to the Obscene language act of 1857! A germanic and Dutch word ‘fikken’ – it means to copulate.

So here we have ‘Happy Birthday Fabulous Fucker’ – I bet you know several fab fuckers who’s birthday it is and who I bet you’d know who you can send this to! You can have any message printed to the inside of your card and I also post cards onto recipients. You can even have your card personalised with your choice of words.

Aye up Chumps! September is almost over and for that I cannot believe how quickly the year has flown. We’re already hurtling into my most favourite time of the year – Autumn! Everything from the crisp cool air, the golden russet leaves, cinnamon and pumpkin spice, harvest goodness from my garden. I really love it all.

I also happen to absolutely love that we have Halloween, Bonfire Night, Mix up Sunday, Advent, Christmas and New Year to start to look to. Of course doing what I do I’m already printing Christmas cards and boxing up sets that are now being ordered daily!

I have toyed with the idea of creating a range of Halloween cards, filthy fun thrown in for good measure but I don’t think they’ll be as well received here in the Uk. Which is a shame because Halloween and Old Mischievous night are British traditions, or at least their roots are based here. I just happen to think the American’s do a fabulous job at making it into such a brilliant occasion!

Things here have been pretty hectic since the kids went back to school; from my previous blog post you can watch where I talked about the business accelerator (Entrepreneurial Spark) that I’m part of has really got underway. I decided to Vlog about my experience of that journey as I try to raise the profile of DYP and access a wider audience and look to scale up what I do.

Ultimately my dream is to make DYP a commercial success, where you can find my cards in shops across the UK, even worldwide. I want to employ people and I want to drive my business to be successful but I want to make you laugh and piss your pants along the way. That is who I am and I believe I can do it because I’ve got laughter and I don’t happen to take myself too seriously!

The hardest part of this journey to date has been the emotional rollercoaster of whether I have a good enough business, whether I can make it super successful, how do I do it? Am I good enough? I think they’re all important questions and a natural part of this amazing process but it’s bloody hard to try to keep positive when your self doubt is gnawing at you.

write that down

It hasn’t helped that I’ve had a pretty bad flu virus on top of a touch of laryngitis which has meant I haven’t recorded a recent vlog. So you’ll have to make do with one I recorded earlier in the month. Which is here:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNTZPcwDvwA

I have regular meetings with my brilliant enabler Melinda, who has made me ask myself some pretty tough questions. One of these has been to understand how to scale DYP, my problem is that I am like a magpie and I am easily distracted to want to try everything new. The hardest bit has been to really ask myself where I see myself in five years, what can I do to really scale up, so that I can have a business that is recognised and products are available nationally and globally. (That bit scares me shitless!)

The most useful thing I’ve done of recent is to properly manage my social media. I’ve got a proper plan, I know my most successful outlets, I know how to find my customers and I know how best to advertise. The problem? Hours in the day! So I’ve become pretty strict at time management, less time fucking about and a clear and precise plan everyday that I’ve been sticking to. In my up coming blogs I’ll post up my social media plan to give you an idea how it’s all working out. Right now though, I feel like I’ve achieved so much already but just simply planning time and how I’m using it. Sounds simple doesn’t it? The best plans always are!

Check out my next post for the fab competition and money off voucher to celebrate the third birthday of DYP.

DYP first Vlog about the Espark Journey

Thank you for being fucking amazing

Back in April I applied to the Entrepreneurial spark in the hope that I would get accepted and be made to look at DYP and how I could move my business forward. Today was my first day of Bootcamp and it has been an amazing experience, trepidation, team work and a firm shove out of my comfort zone.

Whilst speaking to one of the fab enablers, I started to explain that I’m a bit shit at blogging and tbh I am! Though I’m not going to moan or complain, it’s just something I know I should do but other things get in the way. Anyway they suggested I create a podcast or a Vlog, to which I immediately resisted but then realised if I’m going to grow you’ve got to embrace this in order to move forward.

So in this video you will find me (don’t laugh!) rambling over the days events, in my Pj’s late at night talking about the awesome rollercoaster day I’ve had. If you like my video give me a like and subscribe. I’m going to vlog my Espark journey and try to be as candid and open as I can because I think it will be a great insight to understanding my process and journey.

Anyway, enjoy! And don’t worry the filth and debauchery will return!

DYP has a new advert

DYP logo on the contact page

DYP has a new advert to show case the awesomeness of what I do!

For a while I’ve toyed with the idea of creating a small advert that I could place here on the blog and use in my social media to showcase a quick look at what I do.

So here it is, it’s my first attempt at stop motion all done through an iphone 6 plus, I had some rendering issues with the app so it’s not the highest quality it could be but I am quite happy with what I managed to achieve in an evening. I love stop motion and I feel with the way my work is that it fits the medium really well as it’s all photos and text images.

I hope you enjoy it, I love the music, it is exactly what I had in mind when I found it.




Outrageously Rude Fathers Day Cards

Dad bloody fantastic

Outrageously Rude Fathers Day Cards are now available in the shop! For the most you can’t find these cards on the high street because they are in poor taste and vulgar and very rude. Except I think they’re the best cards to send as it makes people properly laugh!  Of course there are tamer cards too, we don’t want your Dad having a heart attack from shock! 😉  (more…)

In poor taste, pornographic and foul language

I love your derriere greetings card

In poor taste, pornographic and foul language were how my range of cards were described recently. Of course they are, they border sexually inappropriate, are full of profanity and are designed to make people with a particular sense of humour, laugh. Are they intended to cause offence, humiliate or belittle people? No, they are purely intended for fun and laughter. If you are offended then you maybe need to go visit a lovely card shop and you know what? That is ok because that is what is brilliant about the world we live in. CHOICE.


The 100 Days Project up to day 29

The 100 Days project up to day 29 The 100 Days Project so far explanation of the camel toe

The 100 Days project up to day 29 has been a really great experience, one where I’ve explored hundreds of rude and vulgar swear words, discovered the etymology of these words and then rewrote them to have a humorous slant. The idea was to create a body of work that would eventually be tweaked then put into production as greetings card, prints and t-shirts.
