  1. Tradeshows Autumn 2020 – What will happen?

    As we all know, the Covid-19 pandemic has shaken the entire world. People and businesses worldwide have had to learn and grow to accommodate the 'new normal'. Because of this, we saw lots of different, exciting events get cancelled, postponed or replaced by virtual events or online marketing. A couple of areas that have been affected greatly by this change are exhibitions and trade fairs.

    As a way around this, most have taken things digital! You no longer need to worry about travel and the use of public transport to arrive at your desired event, you can simply turn on your computer and access the fair from wherever you are.

    Back to School in a Safe and Colourful Mood: Which ranges are the best?

    Schools are planning to reopen again in September after being closed for the majority of kids for a while now, and introducing online lessons as an alternative.  Many of them are probably looking forward to getting back in the classroom and some face to face interactions. But the kids won’t go back to the schools as we know it, instead there will be some changes to adapt to and new ways of doing things. Life is a big learning curve for all of us!

    We want to help you to prepare and stock up your store for when the parents and their kids come hunting for school materials.

    First of all we would like to highlight the fact that schools should be a place of, not just learning, but also fun! And one thing that is fun is themes. They are a big YES for children of all ages. So, what’s important to think about is offering a range of different items but in the same or similar designs.

  4. Coronavirus - How to go through this tough time and how we can help!

    In these uncertain times, we are trying to find ways to help our customers which include a number of special promotions on the websites and which we are monitoring and adjusting to follow government guidelines as well as the needs of our customers. 

    There is a lot of advice online already, but here is some information to make the most out of our special offers and help during this difficult time.

    Sport Relief – It’s Game On

    In 2018 a team from our Head Office and warehouse battled wind, rain and snow to cycle as many miles as we could in one day along the Camel Trail in Cornwall, raising over £1100 for Sport Relief.  When they contacted us about supporting them again in 2020 we jumped at the chance and added it to our 30 for 30 Charity Challenge List.
