Everyday

Across The Board from Jonny Javelin

“Without doubt Jonny Javelin cards are my top sellers. They are beautiful designs at an amazing price. I have a number of customers who only ever buy them and are not interested in the many other publishers I stock.”

Everyday

Across The Board from IC&G

“IC&G come in at a close second on the best selling front. The cards are incredible value for money and its, often simple, contemporary designs are such winners. Plus,  I can place an order with my rep and the cards are delivered the next day – fabulous service!”

Humour

General from Paperlink

“By far my best selling humour ranges are from this publisher, featuring mainly cartoons, with non-offensive jokes. Customers can be heard chuckling in the ‘humour corner’ and they regularly like to ‘re-arrange’ the cards away from their envelopes.”

Contemporary

Pizazz from Nigel Quiney

Handmade/ Hand-Finished

General from Noel Tatt

“The designs continue to be popular and is another publisher who manages to deliver within 24/48 hours from placing the order. Its Decoupage range ‘stands out’ (forgive the pun) – a handmade card, which is priced at £1.99 retail, has to be a winner.”

Handmade/Hand-Finished

Champagne from Second Nature

“There’s a beautiful collection of handmade designs in this range. A little higher price point, but beautiful designs.”

Ancillary

Equilibrium from Joe Davies

“My main gift supplier has to be Joe Davies. I can place a ‘little and often order’ as its minimum order is only £100. Its selection of Equilibrium jewellery is fairly priced and beautifully boxed.”
