News from Lensflair Group http://lensflairgroup.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/6/news-from-lensflair-group Cup cakes blogCup cakes blog

We've been a bit quiet on the blog front this year, but now we have two news items to report.

Firstly, Castleton Visitor Centre (Buxton Road, Castleton, S33 8WP) reopens on Monday 3 July after a major remodelling, and they'll now be selling not only our greetings cards but also a selection of our framed and mounted Peak Collection prints. The new retail area at the centre is a huge improvement, and they now have a cafe too. So if you're in the area do check it out.

Secondly, we've added around 30 new images to our website and made some changes to the homepage, so please do have a look around and, if you feel moved to, tell us what you think via the Guestbook or comments on individual images.

Major update for our website http://lensflairgroup.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/10/major-update-for-our-website Stormclouds on White EdgeStormclouds on White Edge We’ve given our website its biggest ever facelift this month.
 
There are two brand new galleries: Weather, images in which the elements are the stars of the show; and Portrait format images, photographs of assorted subjects that are taller than they are wide. These images hadn’t found a home on our site until now, so it’s a real pleasure to at last be able to showcase some of our best portrait format work.
 
We’ve also added a number of images to existing galleries and revamped the site’s homepage slideshow, so we hope you’ll enjoy revisiting the site and have a good look round. As always, your comments on galleries and individual images are very welcome.

New Lensflair greetings cards launched http://lensflairgroup.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/2/new-lensflair-greetings-cards-launched Cards blog headerCards blog headerOver Owler Tor, Curbar Edge, Wyming Brook

In December last year we published our first set of limited edition art cards. The've turned out to be popular, so now we've launched a second set of 25 new designs, focusing on the Peak District – Lensflair: The Peak Collection.

You can't buy them in the shops but they're on sale at Totley Library, 205 Baslow Rd, Sheffield S17 4DT. As you may know, the library is now run by volunteers, and profits from sales of our cards go towards its running costs.

Throughout April they'll also be on sale at our exhibition of framed and mounted Peak District prints at Castleton Visitor Centre, Buxton Rd, Hope Valley S33 8WP.

If you know one of our group you can buy the cards direct via them.

We don't sell online, but we'll make our cards available from other local community outlets in future if we have the opportunity.

The cards are 7"x5", blank inside for your own message, and come packed with matching envelopes. They're printed for us to a high standard by a specialist art printer, on high quality eco-friendly card from sustainable sources.

The price is considerably less than you might expect to pay for equivalent quality commercially-produced cards – £2.20 per card or three for £6.

To view all the designs, please visit our greetings cards webpage.
