Cute

Nutmeg from UKG

“We are not really a cute product kind of shop, but this range is doing extremely well in all the captions. Proper traditional cute.”

Humour

Funny Farm from Paperlink and Etched from Pigment

“Humour is massive for me, and I have so many strong ranges, but these two are probably the strongest due to the fact they appeal to a very broad demographic.”

Humour

Holyflaps from Redback

“A mention has to go to this range; the (ruder) cards are the top sellers in the naughty box. Eye-wateringly funny and rude with a contemporary look.”

Art

Designers Guild from Paper Rose

“Beautiful!… and the range is selling so well in both blanks and captions.”

Art

Sara Miller London from The Art File

“This range continues to sell so well, and again in both blanks and captions. Both ranges ooze class.”

Contemporary

Wot A Mug from Cherry Orchard and Anna from Lucilla Lavender

“It’s still all about words on cards so these ranges are both flying out. The simple format and bold font make them stand out on the shelf.”

Children’s

Hopscotch from Paperlink

“They may be a higher price point than the average children’s card, but they are the top pick at the moment.”

Giftwrap

Stephanie Dyment from Glick

“Still by far the strongest selling wrap we do and if it has Stephanie Dyment written on it then it’s a top seller here. Stunningly beautiful artwork.”

“Jambo’s silver earrings are amazing! And there’s a huge range at very good prices.”
