Top Drawer London Show Preview

11 January 2018

The Art File are absolutely delighted to once again be exhibiting at Top Drawer Spring in London, from Sunday the 14th January for three days. This year, we’ll be situated at stand U47 in the Greetings section of the show. 

We’ve been incredibly busy over the past few months, collaborating with a number of hugely talented designers and illustrators in house and on a licensing basis. And we’re immensely proud to announce the launch of over 300 brand new everyday designs, across 13 new greeting card collections on our stand at the Show.
Alongside our brand-new collections, a number of range extensions are being launched from the gorgeous Sara Miller London collection, the recent ‘Best Male Range’ winning Geronimo collection, new designs from talented Illustrator Ben Rothery’ s Natural History collection, and much, much more.

The Art File would also like to take this opportunity to formally introduce two brand new Greeting Card licenses; firstly- the popular and successful ‘I Like Birds’ collection from Stuart Cox. Stuarts desire to combine his love of nature with a love for design is reflected perfectly in this collection of 20 bestselling cards from his portfolio. The simple yet beautiful bold graphics and strong colour palette give these cards a real presence in the market place. I Like Birds captures the mannerisms of the birds effortlessly, resulting in a clever collection full of personality and fun. Stuarts collection will proudly be on show on our stand at the upcoming exhibition.

Secondly, introducing the immensely talented illustrator, Josie Shenoy. Kaleidoscope, the first of two beautiful new collections from the London based illustrator. This collection brings together exquisitely drawn animals and foliage, which are then cleverly positioned to create stunning kaleidoscopic patterns. The colour palette and the illustration combine to form 12 cards in this charming and unique collection.
The Second collection we are launching by Josie is called Animal Kingdom. We absolutely love the approach Josie has taken here, covering the animals with patterns which sit beautifully within a foiled framework. The use of hot foils, including some holographic foils really make these designs stand out from the crowd. We can’t wait for you to see both collections at the show.

Moving onto our home-grown band of lovely, unique and diverse in-house designers, who themselves have continued to build our growing brand for 2018, with a number of exquisite new greeting card collections and range extensions. Retro Pop, a letterpress inspired collection, brand new Sassy Pants designs, and a host of brand new Pocket Typewriter designs from our very own Jack Carter- the chap with the nicest hair in the industry! (if we say so ourselves).
Alongside cards, we’re delighted to be launching brand new gift bag, flat wrap, roll wrap, and for the first time, tissue and newly improved gift tags. Having this expanded gift packing selection will allow our customers to continue to strengthen their displays in store with over 3 brand new looks available. 

We very much look forward to saying hello to you at the show. As always, if you have any questions about our upcoming shows, new product , or anything else - please do send an email to And we'll be happy to help.
