Cute: Hello Geronimo (general)
“Really sweet, simple ink drawings – ie of a teepee, cake, baby feet – with a little bit of felt attached. They’re just a little bit different.”

Humour: Dean Morris (all ranges)
“Hysterical designs about the classic themes of gossip and alcohol.”

Humour: Hunky Dory Cards (general)
“A company created by women, they know what topics will appeal to the female market – funny designs that are rude but not too much.”

Photographic: ArtPress (Norman Parkinson and Magnum Photos)
“Stunning shots from English fashion photographer Norman Parkinson, and vintage black and white images from gifted, world-renown photographers; the publisher’s whole collection is so varied.”

Art: The Art File (all ranges)
“Such a great broad collection of different ranges that are always updated with fresh designs from new artists.”

Contemporary: Noi Publishing (Noi Florals(ba))
“Bright and gorgeous contemporary florals on good quality board.”

Children’s: Hype (Pingu, Mr Benn, Thomas the Tank Engine)
“Classic children’s characters that adults know very well and send to the next generation.”

Children’s: Noi Publishing (Noi Monsters (ac))
“Really lovely, quirky illustrations that are simple but unusual.”
