Christmas is coming!August 23 2015
Don't panic, to normal folk Christmas still feels like a summer away, and so it should - get those cocktails and BBQ's in before the cold nights draw in and you have to start thinking about what to buy your loved ones.
We, on the other hand have to start thinking about Christmas a little earlier. For the past couple of weeks we've been in full Christmas mode, photographing, editing, packing and posting. The full range of Christmas cards will be online ready to buy in November.
Here's a little glimpse into the behind the scenes chaos of a Greetings Card photoshoot!
Top Drawer SpringJanuary 23 2015
We've been super busy at Strawberry HQ, time seems to be flying by and the 'to do' list seems to grow daily but its all good! We're just getting back to normal after a great show exhibiting at Top Drawer Spring at Olympia, London. The show was massive this year with the introduction of Craft and Home - overall it had a great atmosphere, its brilliant to see such a collection of great designers and creative businesses under one roof.
Trade shows are a huge amount of work and also a lot of fun. Its a great chance to catch up with our stockists, hopefully meet new ones and also catch up with our friends and fellow card co's, it's a brilliantly friendly industry to be involved in. Here are a few pictures from the show.
After a 7am start setting off from Bristol we arrived at Olympia to our blank canvas. After lugging our boxes of tools, shelves, stock and props from the car it was time to start setting up. There was a lot of measuring, drilling and lining up to do. The shelves went up without a hitch, and all pretty straight! Next up... the vinyls...
We had big plans to do a time-lapse of the full set up but sadly battery life and lack of cables got the better of us, next year for sure. Finally around 7pm we were finished, here's the final stand complete with two smiling faces!
Thanks to everyone who visited - see you next year!Continue reading...
