Tatty Teddy’s coming to town

Lovable Carte Blanche character set to star at PG Live, with chance to win XXL version


Tatty Teddy is all set to be a star of the show at PG Live next week, with the lovable character ready to meet fans on the Carte Blanche Greetings’ stand, as well as enjoying a wander around.

And the publisher has even more Tatty Teddy fun for retailers visiting the show, which runs over next Tuesday and Wednesday, 7-8 June, at London’s Business Design Centre.

Carte Blanche is running some fabulous promotions with special show-only discounts and offers, and anyone placing an order on its Stand 222 across the two days will be put into a draw with a chance to win an XXL Tatty Teddy bear worth £200 to put in their window display.

“The PG Live show is huge for us,” Carte Blanche’s marketing manager Grace Elphinstone told PG Buzz. “We’ll be showcasing all of our brands, Me To You, Wishing Well, Hotchpotch, Violent Veg, Blue Mountain Arts and some ace new humour – in fact PG Live is the only card show we’re attending this year, we place that much importance on it.”

In addition to CBG’s latest specialist ranges and its Spring Seasons collection, the publisher will also be showcasing its latest everyday refreshes across Me To You, Wishing Well and Hotchpotch.

Grace added: “Our new everyday female, baby and christening, and love and friendship refreshes account for one of the biggest refreshes in several years with circa 70% of the range being new, ensuring that our most important and popular captions are given a fantastic new refresh.

“All Me To You and Wishing Well female designs follow the new Specialist looks that have been so popular. The look used for Specialist is wonderfully versatile and allows us to give each look its own identity with heart motifs for love and friendship, starburst for baby, and flowers and starbursts for female sends. Wishing Well designs are stunning with beautiful new hand-drawn illustrations.”
