Comments from a USA Customer
Dear Maureen and Lew,
 
I wanted to let you know that I have received the beautiful "Flower Theme Calendar" that I ordered on 27 April 2012. It is even lovelier than I'd expected! Thanks for shipping it quickly and packaging it so carefully. It arrived in excellent condition.
 
Many thanks, too, for the complimentary greeting card that you enclosed with my calendar. It is frameable art! I will send it to my daughter who spent a summer in Australia when she was in college years ago. She will love it.
 
Thanks again and I'll be doing more shopping on The Short Collection web site soon.
 
Warm regards,

“Hello Maureen & Lew,
I wanted to let you know that I have received the beautiful cards and the added gifts as well. Thank you so much for the nine extra cards and the perpetual birthday calendar. You were very generous with the free gifts and it's very much appreciated.
The cards are lovely. I am an American married to an Aussie and living in Australia for eight and a half years now. I have friends and family in American, of course. I love sending them cards that are 'Aussie themed' and they love receiving them as well. So, I was very happy to have found your website.
Just prior to finding your website, I ordered cards from ????????? website. I got a receipt for the three boxes of cards that I ordered and nothing since. 
I tell you the above because I ordered the cards from you on the same day and I have them already. Your communication is excellent and the prompt delivery commendable. In my opinion, it shouldn't take over three working days to fill and order for three boxed sets of cards. Essentially that is only three items they need to pick, pack and send. You have put them to shame.  
Thank you for doing an excellent job!
Cheers,
Linda from Sydney”

Dear Maureen and Lewis

 

Thank you very much for the cards, they arrived safely yesterday.

 

The quality is as expected, the best that they could be, just the same as the service that you have provided from start to finish.

 

We will be proud to give one to the Bride & Groom at each Wedding that we decorate and know that they will keep it as a reminder of Bubbles for years to come.

 

Thank you again.

Dear Maureen

 

As you know we started stocking your calendars and cards last year. I just wanted to let you know that they have proved extremely popular – not only for their quality, but also their originality.

 

It’s been amazing the number of people who have been delighted to find Perpetual Calendars for sale – for their own use and especially as gifts. The retail price affords good value to the customer and a good profit margin for the Licensed Post Office.

 

Many thanks for a good quality product, and excellent, speedy service.

 

Best wishes,

 

Bathurst West Licensed Post Office

Comments from a Customer in Sydney, NSW

I discovered Maureen Short’s outstanding cards in a local Book Shop so many years ago. 

I was instantly taken by Maureen’s remarkable photography depicting every aspect of life in Australia, not to mention the layout, size and individual packaging of each card.

 

From native animals, sea creatures and wildflowers to fabulous harbour views and landscape vistas, these cards are really quite exceptional.

 

My American and Japanese friends look forward  to receiving my special Christmas gift each year of  a  dozen of Maureen’s cards which I mix, wrap and post off  early enough for them to use for their own Christmas Greetings.

 

Keep them coming Maureen.

Comments from a customer in Wagga Wagga, NSW

Dear Maureen,

 

I’m from Wagga Wagga, well The Rock (35 Km south of Wagga to be precise). Anyway, I’m in Sydney for a couple of weeks because I had to spend some time in a city hospital. I decided to find a newsagency to get some post cards to send off to my wife and kids and a couple of other friends around the place. If I’m away from home for any period of time I like to send a post card or two off because my kids and some of my friends love getting a photo combined with a few words from the old man/mate.

 

I went into a newsagency at St Leonards Plaza expecting the usual garden variety posties, which there was, but then I discovered you’re handmade posties. Well. I reckon they’re brilliant, so much so that I blew the budget and bought half a dozen to send off. Now I’m thinking of buying some more of them to put in small picture frames to brighten up my desk at work.

 

I’m also going to pass you’re web address onto my mother-in-law and one of my daughters who says that she wants to be a professional photographer. I’m in no doubt that you’re work will give them some ideas/inspiration.

 

Anyway keep at it Maureen, its really good stuff.

 

Yours Faithfully

Peter

Comments from a Customer in Brisbane, Qld

It is my pleasure to have found your site, and the free greeting card that you popped in with my frog, was absolutely beautiful. I will revisit again soon, as another birthday is coming up. And just to deal with wonderful welcoming people is just what consumers are really after, as there seems to be not a lot of this about.

All the best, Becky

Comments from a Customer in Brisbane, Qld

Hi There,

Just to let you know that I have been looking for anything to do with green frogs, and I googled, green frog items, and found your beautiful site and greeting cards. I purchased a card from you for a friend, but I will be revisiting for myself. Thank you kindly for the personal email, beautiful site. The green tree frogs images are magic as are all your other photos.

All the best,

Maree

Comments from a Customer in NSW

Hi Maureen,

I have just received the cards I ordered on Wednesday evening, they look fantastic. I  Have family in England so it will be great to be able to send them an Aussie card for Birthdays or just to say hi. None of the shops I looked in had cards with Australian images on them, so I came home and did a search on the Internet. That’s how I found your cards. Dad worked out that the average cost of each card I bought was about $3.60, which given that the cost of postage was included and I bought 6 Multi packs works out to be good value, as the cost of the cards on average would be slightly less when postage costs are removed. The prompt arrival of the cards is also pleasing as I had left it to the last minute to send a couple overseas for Birthdays, Hopefully they will only be a day or two late getting there.

I would be happy to recommend your products to others as they are of a high quality and the service is excellent and the price very reasonable.

I hope you have a good day,

Ann, NSW

Comments from a Customer in Brisbane

Hello Maureen and Lewis,
My Perpetual Calendar arrived safely in the mail this morning.  Thank you.  A couple of weeks ago I asked my local Newsagent if she had any of these calendars or was she able to get any in for me.  She tried and got in one HUGE calendar which wasn't suitable at all.  Then she tried again when she had a more accurate idea of what I was wanting and came back to me and said she wasn't able to find me one.
I also walked North Lakes Shopping Centre (here in Brisbane) a couple of weeks ago, which is quite a large shopping centre.  I had no luck there either.  I thought this was very strange.
So - over the next couple of days I plan to take my calendar down to our local Newsagent with your complimentary card (which was lovely thank you) and also a copy of the letter that you sent me.  I just thought she might like to see what you guys are all about and may be able to use your business in the future.  You never know.
Regards,
Judy, Brisbane

Comments from a Customer in Melbourne

Thank you very much - It's for my mother-in-law - I'm sure she will get great value out of it.  I bought one years ago from the metropolitan art museum (New York) and she has been eyeing it off for some time.  I just couldn't find a nice one in Australia - until I found yours on the internet! Cheers, Priya, from Melbourne
