Cute: Roger la Borde (Petit Sauvage)
“Really quirky, beautifully illustrated designs on quality board.”

Humour: Brainbox Candy (general)
“The bright and contemporary collections are new to us but are going down very well and appeal to younger customers. We are a family orientated shop so we choose the designs that are cheeky but not rude.”

Humour: Pigment (Etched)
“Small, etched drawings with a funny punchline that’s a play on words; favourites with older people.”

Photographic: U Studio (1000 Words)
“Very minimal and unusual modern images; their simplicity is the appeal.”

Art: Amy Singer Art (general)
“My own pen and ink illustrations made locally that can be personalised. I’ve recently drawn four characters from the film Labyrinth which are going well, and the Bennachie design, a local hill range, is really popular.”

Contemporary: Hammond Gower (all ranges)
“Just amazing! So many different designs and always something new.”

Giftwrapping: Lagom (all ranges)
“Beautiful designs with punchy fresh colours on high quality paper.”
