HUMOURCARDS Yet more Frank-ness


TEN new designs have recently been added to the Abacus photographic range Frank By Name which is still feeding the strong appetite for this type of humour.


The new additions, which feature the usual spot-coloured, black and white photographic imagery humorously captioned, mainly cover ageing topics! The Wait Until The Grandchildren card has gone straight into the top spot of Abacus’ best- sellers’ list. These 5x7 birthday cards are all greeted on page three and are accompanied by white cartridge envelopes. Offered cello-wrapped, the cards carry a range-branded label.

Image says it all


FINDING an image that makes people laugh is like gold dust for Alternative Image. As they don’t use captions and the cards are blank, they rely solely on the visual impact of an image to attract customers – and nothing attracts them more than a funny card. The wonderful thing about publishing retro images is that nostalgic humour works for so many different occasions. The card featured here, for example, could be given for birthdays, retirement, congratulations or Mother’s Day. Alternative Image’s current range, and their new range due out


in July, is packed with funny imagery because humour, as they’ve discovered through their UK and international customers, is a universal language.
