Trade Show Preview: Spring Fair 2023
Hall 3, Stand P11, NEC Birmingham, 5th – 8th February 2023
This weekend we'll be attending Spring Fair, the biggest trade show of 2023.Taking place at the NEC in Birmingham from the 5th – 8th September, we’ll be in Hall 3, Stand P11, launching our Everyday and Christmas 2023 collections. If you're coming along to the show, here's a sneak preview of what we're showcasing this year...
Christmas 2023 Collections
We are extremely excited to launch our Christmas 2023 collection at Spring Fair. Our new releases are high quality and design-rich festive celebrations of the most wonderful time of the year. This year we are unveiling countless new Christmas designs, two new Christmas card collections and four new gift-wrapping designs. Christmas 2023 also sees the return of favourite collections and brilliant licensed collections such as Alan Kitching & Kate Heiss Christmas cards.
Sustainability and charity contributions remain a strong focus for us this year. We'll be raising money for RSPCA, MNDA, Dementia UK and Young Lives vs Cancer through our Charity Packs. In recent years, with the support of our brilliant customers, we have raised over £300,000 for charities. In our opinion, that's important and something we will continue to promote every year.
This year all of our cards are offered naked and plastic-free, whilst our gift bags are produced free from laminate and are 100% recyclable once removing the ribbon handles. In addition, all of our Wallet Cards and Luxury Boxes are proudly printed in the UK, reducing our carbon footprint and supporting local businesses.
We're incredible proud that our Luxury Boxes have won 'Best Christmas Box In The Industry' for four years running. Luxury Boxes are beautifully crafted Christmas cards that are perfect for the special people in your life.They contain 8 cards each and are completely recyclable. We're unveiling 6 brand-new designs to this collection this year.
Following requests from customers, we are delighted to announce the launch of our new Large Christmas Cards, beautifully designed for sending to the extra special people in your life. Each card is produced here in the UK on 320 GSM textured board and finished with embossed lines and hot foils. There are 7 designs to this collection.
This year we unveiled New Rock On, and we're excited to introduce 6 new designs especially for Christmas. From poking fun at age to playful animal puns, this reimagined humour range is perfect for customers looking to enjoy a laugh and a joke with their friends and family. All cards in this range are finished with debasing and a flash of gold foil to really stand out.
Everyday 2023: Spring & Summer
This year we're incredible excited to introduce over 180 new designs to our Spring and Summer everyday collection. This includes countless new designs across our collections along with 9 brand-new card ranges. As part of our latest launch, we are thrilled to present ‘Soleil’, a new collection of 12 designs by Art File’s in-house designer Beth Kemp. Then there’s ‘Hey Cutie’, the fun filled die-cut range by Kerry Lister, another one of our talented in-house designers. We also welcome two brilliant new external artists to this launch, Stephen Hanson with his collection ‘Toby the Dog’ and ‘Hope & Glory’ by Toby Holmes. In addition to these, there are all the exciting editions to our existing top performing collections and four beautiful new gift-wrapping stories.
