Fay's Studio expands!

It is with this post that I bring very exciting news for Fay's Studio!

Since Spring Fair International in February, I have had a lot of projects in the pipeline and this week they have come to reality. I have been working closely with a fantastic distributor in New Zealand who have placed their first order for Fay's Studio greeting cards.
It is such an exciting time for me and it's quite unbelievable that my creations will be shipping off to the other side of the world. I feel a bit scared for them.

It will take a few months to hear any sales reports and if my ranges do well there is the possibility of extension of the range and increase of volumes. For now I am going to enjoy the moment and see what comes from this awesome opportunity. I have Spring Fair to thank for making it possible to meet buyers from outside the UK, and to the other exhibitors at the show who all gave their help and advice to launch me into exporting my products.

Please keep your fingers crossed for my cards and I will update you in a few months time.

New Catalogue.

My new catalogue is now ready and so here are a few pictures of what is inside this edition. My catalogue has now gone from an 8 to a 12 page booklet, it just shows how many more products I have these days and I have even had to leave a few cards out where I just couldn't find room. But they are always on the website with their product codes should you need them to place an order. If you would like a copy then please let me know.

Busy times!

It's been an incredibly hectic time really since Spring Fair International in February. With repeat orders after the show and some big orders going out, it has meant a lot of packing and boxing up. However, as the designer (and general dogs body) I have been working away on lots of new designs for release at Harrogate Home & Gift Show, which is fast approaching.

'Picnic' new to Handbags & Gladrags range.

I have added to the existing ranges, and created a new range called 'Elegance' of which you can have a sneeky look below. The range is inspired by gorgeously fashionable women and I hope is a little bit reminiscent of the wonderful Rene Gruau who's illustrations are a huge inspiration.

I have also been busy with a secret project which I will hope to reveal soon. It's been under wraps for a while and as the products don't launch until next Spring I don't want to give too much away.

The new catalogue is also in its final stages, so if you would like a trade copy then please send me your details, and I'll pop you down on the list.

The Fay's Studio website has also been nominated for Website of the Month by Mr Site (my web hosts), so fingers crossed for an achievement there.

I will also be unveiling lots of new Valentine's Day cards at Harrogate, so come along and visit me in Hall F stand F72.
