Aspin’s monthly client roundup – that was March 2016 (and Easter!)
As many of you enjoyed the Easter break (but not the weather) and your chocolate eggs we looked back at the client news this month. Aspin have spent a lot of time on the road this month, following up many trade show enquiries with existing and prospective clients.
Caroline Gardener’s sales manager Katie Finegan has highlighted that the trends coming through for 2016 as ‘quirky and floral’ in bright jolly colours with big influences coming from vintage fabrics and interiors. Caroline Gardner are continually innovative with their bold prints to catch the eye. Caroline Gardener’s range sees inspiration from popular past ranges that they have launched, loved and were a success.
Nikki Farrar, Creative Director of UK Greetings is also pleased to talk about their new product range. UK Greetings will launch their gift wrap range that takes inspiration from around the world, “the jungle of the tropics, with their vibrant colours and abundant fruits; South America with its symbolic cacti and llamas; and London with its unmistakable icons!” UKG describe this as a new and very exciting approach. They have also released a new wedding and annivarsary range. It’s a busy time in the greeting card sector, as Abacus cards have just launched their 2016 wedding range – 40 cards, 9 new designs and 31 bestsellers. Expect to find beautifully handcrafted products that are more than ‘just a card’. Here at Aspin we work with some fantastic companies in the greeting card sector and are always delighted to report on their success.
Over in the Optical and Stationery sectors, Norville Eyewear and Maped Helix are gearing up for two of the biggest shows in their calendar and we wish them the best of luck.
Have a great April, everyone!
