Speed-dating Leads To Glick Collaborating With Rosie Made a Thing

They met for a few brief minutes at the GCA Speed-dating with Dragons event in April, but the ensuing relationship has resulted in Glick collaborating with Rosie Made a Thing producing a collection of everyday and Christmas wrappings based on the Henries award winning range, Gin & Frolics under licence.

Becky Dobson, director of Glick was was delighted to be introduced to Rosie Harrison, founder of Rosie Made a Thing at the GCA event, having long been a fan of the publisher’s distinct card designs, seeing the quirky humour sitting perfectly with the giftwrap company’s Cloud Nine range that it produces under licence from Redback Cards.

“I have always personally loved Rosie’s style and with our humour range with Redback selling in very well we have confidence in humour on gift wrappings,” Glick’s Becky Dobson told PG Buzz.

For Rosie Harrison, founder of Rosie Made a Thing the tie-up with Glick continues the publisher’s ‘purple patch’. Gine & Frolics won another Henries award at the event in October (for Best Relations and Occasions range), plus she has recently also signed a licensing deal for mugs with McLaggan.

“I’m so happy to be working with Becky and the Glick team. It’s a true collaboration and great to have their knowledge and expertise in this sector – I’ve only just got my head around cards!”
