With September comes more trade fairs and we see the welcome return of Autumn Fair and Top Drawer, along with the London Stationery show later in October. We have previews on all of these events and a sneak peek at some of the new launches from greeting card publishers, gift suppliers and stationery brands.
Of course, with the change in season plenty of brands are launching new products too. Check out Spotlight on page 8 to see some of what’s new. We also have a Feminine ranges feature on page 30 with plenty of designs suited to the many important and special women in our lives.
We chat to Mabel Forsyth, the illustrator and designer behind the Pink Pig brand as she reveals the story behind her greeting card business on page 20. Plus, Museums & Galleries share some of the environmental initiatives the company is adopting on page 15. While Kali Stileman celebrates her 100th gift wrap design and Emma Ball marks 20 years in the industry.
