Merry Christmas Newsletter & Vegware’s 2012 in numbers :)
Cooee…just a quick note to say….
Merry Christmas! We would like to wish everyone a very very Happy Christmas and thank everyone for their support in 2012. It’s been a big year for us (see our 2012 in numbers below), and we’re really enjoying the ride. So here’s a BIG thank you to all our friends, well-wishers and customers. We’ll look forward to speaking again in 2013!
Last orders before Christmas & opening hours
The Vegware office closes on Friday 21st December, re-opening on Wednesday 2nd January. For delivery before Christmas, please order by 3pm on Wednesday 19th December. Or forever hold your peas. If you need a delivery between Christmas and New Year, please contact us this week and we will happily arrange a delivery on Friday 28th December.
And now, Vegware’s 2012 in numbers!

So that was the last newsletter of 2012. Don’t be shy – feel free to send us chocolates, flowers, or any sort of artisan foodstuffs to our Edinburgh address. Or simply say hello on facebook or follow us on twitter at @vegware. Or if you actually want to talk about compostable packaging, we like that too. We’re on firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 0845 643 0406.
All the best for a restful break filled with lashings of Stilton and hundreds of clementines,
Lucy and the Vegware team
