WELCOME to the UKCBD Christian wholesalers, distributors and trade suppliers index: a growing A-Z guide to the UK Christian trade supply chain. Although this section of the site was launched in May 2012 it remains very much a work in progress: if there's a wholesaler or distributor you'd like to see included here, please ask them to get in touch with the details they'd like to see listed. For a detailed list of who supplies whom — A-Z by Publisher & Imprint — see the Publishers and Suppliers file in the Christian Authors, Booksellers and Publishers facebook group (members only).

Just Cards Direct Just Cards Direct was started in 2007, with 2 purposes: firstly to support card makers working in Christian development projects in Rwanda, Kenya and South Africa; and secondly to financially support charities in the developing world.

Our Greeting Cards
We sell a wide range of handmade cards, as well as printed cards, including Christmas cards - all available on our website. We also sell to shops, businesses, traders and churches.

We work with six different card projects in Africa. Each one provides fair employment to orphans, widows or those who would otherwise not have work. In some small way we are able to help provide justice, dignity and hope for those living in poverty.
