Cute: Pippi & Me (Little Creatures)
“A range of photographic designs using felt animals, they appeal to both children and adults, and they sell very quickly!”

Humour: Rosie Made A Thing (general)
“Quirky humour that makes customers laugh out loud. The age cards are particularly popular. The Christmas and Spring seasons were a big hit too.”

Art: Dry Red Press (general)
“Designs which cover virtually every subject – animals, flowers, boats, sports – they are popular with everyone and are often used as occasion cards.”

Contemporary: Five Dollar Shake (Gold Dust, Moonbeams And Butterflies)
“Always popular, especially the larger cards, and one of the publishers that customers request by name. We sell more wedding cards from Five Dollar Shake than from any other publisher.”

Contemporary: The Art File (Ink and Bloom, Bright New Things)
“Lots of contemporary, blank cards, but the publisher also offer a great choice of cards for occasions and relations. New ranges have been added every time I see the agent.”

Handmade/Hand-Finished: Belly Button Designs (all ranges)
“Just beautiful. Enough said!”

Handmade/Hand-Finished: Bexy Boo (The Inky Alphabets)
“A Henries award winning local company whose designs fly off the shelves. The designs, using hand-stamped wooden tiles, cover birthdays, occasions, ages and relations. There’s a children’s range too which always sells well.”

Giftwrappings: ArteBene (general)
“A vibrant display of matching wrap, bags, boxes and ribbon which follows up to the minute trends. It always takes pride of place in our giftwrap section.”

Ancillary: HuncaMunka (handmade luxury soaps)
“Handmade cocoa butter soap that is beautifully wrapped in pretty fabrics:  A great counter-top gift display.”
