Funky Pigeon initially began life under the name as Split Ink Studio, a company that specialised in producing greeting cards and gifts for both companies and individuals. In 2009, Brunel Holdings purchased a 50% stake in Split Ink Studio. The same year the company launched a website, now called Funky Pigeon. One year later, the British book selling retailer WHSmith acquired Funky Pigeon.
In May 2010, Funky Pigeon ran its first TV advert and in 2011, Funky Pigeon opened physical stores at Charing Cross, Leeds City, and Liverpool Street train stations. Today, Funky Pigeon is one of the UK’s largest personalised greeting card manufacturers.
Although most people who shop at Funky Pigeon do so using its website at www.funkypigeon.com, the retailer also has several offline presences. Most of them are located in train stations for example in Charing Cross and Leeds City. It’s possible to purchase pre-made cards and products and there’s even a terminal where you can create a personalised greeting card in-store. Many of Funky Pigeon’s cards are also available to purchase in WHSmith stores.
