The cards have a generally rough appearance.
The wording, fonts and Logos are all a bit different than the common England Rosebud Card.
The cards are beleived to have been printed by a different printing company.
One theory on these "printed in U.K." cards is that when items were labeled this way, they are normally being made for the other Kingdoms such as Wales, Scottland and Northern Ireland and not for Great Britain.
