Increasingly, things that once only existed in the physical world are shifting onto our screens. We’ve gone from DVDs to streaming services, CDs to iTunes and paperbacks to Kindles.

Patrick Gaskin and Tom Clift were on the show to pitch their business, Cardly, and, after some very hard bargaining, managed to walk away with a deal… well, almost.
As the boys explained, Cardly is an online card-sending service and there’s really nothing else like it out there.
