Currently getting ready to show at Brand Licensing next month. Have lots of new things happening, with a new property release for children, starting with a book written and illustrated by us. There are some great characters and its a fun concept which will appeal to most children. We have also put together a fantastic portfolio of visuals showing just how great this concept works on many product levels. We are also presenting our newly published range of greeting cards. In total over 80 so there is lots to see at the show, the cards range from vintage nostalgia through to novelty. Very excited about all our new products and we are working very hard getting it all ready to unveil in just three weeks time.
Aspace. They are boxed canvasses, I also have another image with them which is a floral union jack
