Cutture debuts at Home and Gift 2012
Cutture debuts at Home and Gift 2012 :: Stand H124
Cutture launched greetings cards for retail towards the end of 2011, having been selected for Spotted at Top Drawer where the first official launch of our cards were, we were then invited back to Top Drawer in January as part of Spotted Plus.
Since then, quite a lot has happened, even without us realising until now, so having just taken a step back and realised, would you be so kind to let me hog the limelight on our own blog, a little run down to keep you posted….
The first excitement on our retail journey was when we were selected as finalists for the very prestigious Henries Award for our 2011 Christmas card range, (for cards that were actually produced in 2010, prior to the knowledge we have now, so very pleased with that!) then since Top Drawer, we are overwhelmed to have already gained well over 50 stockists in the UK, some rather fabulous boutiques and art galleries to boot, and earlier this month the first order for Selfridges arrived, wow. These were shipped this week so we hope to see them in store very soon. There has also been interest from an American distributer, who we met with at the National Stationery Show in New York back in May, a lot to do, but do watch this space…
So we felt it was time to fly alone and this weekend sees Cutture’s debut at the Harrogate Home and Gift show, where we will be exhibiting amongst the UK’s top retail suppliers and indeed top artists and designers. For the show we will be exhibiting our laser cut ranges launched last year, but with some colour changes and tweaks, and we are happy to launch 2 new collections. All will be revealed once the show has opened, but expect something a little different from Cutture this time, Christmas 2012 has just arrived back from the screen printers today and they are looking fabulous, just need to add a little touch of Cutture magic to finish them off…..the other range is also big news in that is a licensed range, a concept that will help new designers put their feet on the map. Once the show has opened there will be a press release with information on both these ranges along with a brand new trade website for our current and new retail customers and stockists to make ordering that much easier.
For now a sneaky peek at what arrived back from the printers today….if you’re coming to the show do say hello, Stand H124, see you there!
