Post Harrogate

It's been a week now since I got back from Harrogate home & gift show, and the enquiries have just been non stop. We managed to get away for a much needed weekend break (which I will report back on later), but right now the reality of the sheer work ahead of me has hit home and hit the office!!
Lots to report post Harrogate, including new agents, some commision work (which I can't say much about yet) and we also have a new member of staff joining the team next week. Horaay!!
On day three of the Harrogate show, I realised that our 'Golden Orchid' range of greeting cards was featured in the Harrogate preview magazine....Coool!

Home & Gift Harrogate

Arrived back home safely this evening after a very tiring yet enjoyable few days exhibiting at the Home & Gift Fair in Harrogate.
Lots of new customers, potential new agents and a couple of very exciting business ventures have come our way in the last few days.
A big thank you to all our customers for placing orders with us and to all our publishing friends for all their support and advice.

Pure Love

'Pure Love' was launched at Top Drawer earlier on this year and became an instant bestseller due to its specific anniversary captions such as Ruby and Golden Anniversary.
As we were getting constant requests by customers to add Happy Birthday captions to these very pretty beaded cards, we decided to add 6 new cards to the collection.These now include baby boy, baby girl and 4 Happy Birthday captions which we will be launching at the Harrogate show next week.

Golden Orchid Age Cards

Golden Orchid - The Age Collection

Hurray!! New summer catalogue has finally arrived!

We needed some more brochures printed (500 to be precise) to take to our next trade show in Harrogate and to send out to existing customers, so off I went with the decorating ladder to do a quick photo shoot of our new age range.

These cards are from the newly launched Golden Orchids age range, covering all major age milestones. The detailed black and gold free hand machine embroiderey is effortlessly finished off with an intricately hand drawn gold lace. All cards are sized 155 mm square and are complimented with a gold pearlescent enveloope.
