Jo Drake & Chris Branfi eld “It’s been good, and Paperchase’s head of buying has just approached us – apparently the chief exec saw us and told her to get our details. We’ve covered our costs of the stand and more!”

Steve Day, Little Robot Shop “We have a particular niche and are trying to broaden it out. We’ve been talking to Fenwick because I saw they have no male or boy cards so spoke to them about it and they said they struggle. We’ve had interest in image licensing, some orders and a lot of interest.”

Jonny Spears Jonny Javelin “It’s been very good, very pleasing. We didn’t do this for two years but did it again last year and it’s been a very good show this time, so we’ll be back next year.”

Simon Elvin “It’s been a very good show, Tuesday was the best day and Wednesday has been quieter. It’s not so much how many people, it’s the quality of the people, that that’s been good. It’s a nice show to visit because it’s so compact.”

Chris Bryan Second Nature

“It was absolute madness on Tuesday as we did really hit the spot. We were pretty confi dent that it was good, but we’ve absolutely nailed it. People love the new personalisation range.”

Cath & Rosie Tate with Jacob Cath Tate Cards “It’s not been too bad, I wasn’t sure that we were going to get much from it but we have had some orders which is nice.”

Debbie & Alan Williams Mint Publishing, M&G and Real & Exciting Designs “It’s been really good and exciting! The new knitted range has gone down really well for Mint and they were only delivered to our hotel on Tuesday morning!”

Doug Morrice Grass Roots “We weren’t going to do the show but decided to do it at the last minute because we have a lot of customers who come here and we’ve seen them all. It means we’ve done it every year, all six years.”

Sarah & David Brown Ella & George “We had a great fi rst show. Didn’t know what to expect but learned lots, had lots of positive feedback, had a couple of orders, which made our day, got some potentially exciting leads to follow up and gained fabulous brand exposure.”

Sachin Vasini 7Gems “We’re distributing Bolly Xpress sound cards with Davora, but we really concentrate on the speciliast relations cards and have invented our own relationary, which is a list of who’s who in the different Asian families.”

Merene Taylor Amscan “It hasn’t been at all bad, it’s the fi rst year we have come here as we’ve been targeting a different audience. We’ve had some good leads come through and already aim to do the show again next year.” 41
