“Our customers are mature so these two ranges suit. They’re not too close to the knuckle with good one-liners and quality jokes.”
Velvet from Jonny Javelin
“One of our best-selling card ranges. The words and artwork are very good, but most importantly is that they are good value at £1.99.”
General from Words ‘n’ Wishes

A Little… bracelets from Joma Jewellery
