Mum’s the word

SORRY dad, it looks like kids do have a favourite parent – daughters spend £7,100 on gifts for their mothers over a lifetime, more than double what they spend on their fathers. A new infographic commissioned by Quidco reveals the spending habits for children towards their parents and the results show that, as well as Mother’s Day being a significantly bigger celebration than Father’s Day, both sons and daughters favour mum over dad with gifts. The full Mother’s Day & Feminine-Themed Cards article is in the October issue of Greetings Today which can be read online. Here we expand on the publishers featured, covering Abacus, Allihopa, Bonnie Blackbird, Brainbox Candy, Cherry Orchard, Hallmark, Happy Nut, Hotchpotch Publishing, I Love Nice Cards, Laura Sherratt Designs, Ling Designs, Lorraine Stylianou, Miss Magpie Fashion Spy, Nigel Quiney, Peartree Heybridge, Talking Pictures and Sweet Design Studio. The full feature starts on page 24 of the print issue and includes Always Sparkle, Berni Parker, Blue Eyed Sun, Cinnamon Aitch, Jelly N Bean, Jonny Javelin, Mint, Pippi & Me, Pocket Typewriter, Portfolio Cards, Real & Exciting Designs, Redback Cards, Saffron, Wendy Jones-Blackett, and Word ’n’ Wishes.

Handy advice

FABRIC, flitter, buttons and bows, eyelets, pencil shavings, string, tags and tip-ons – these are just some of the many bits and pieces added to greetings cards to give that handmade or hand-finished look. Along with the intricate hand-folding required for origami-style 3D cards, hand-finished products have always been around and seem to be becoming increasingly popular as consumers look to reflect their rediscovered love for crafts with interesting and different designs. The full Handmade & Hand-Finished Cards article is in the October issue of Greetings Today which can be read online. Here we expand on the publishers featured, covering Embroidered Originals, Hallmark, and James Ellis. The full feature starts on page 33 of the print issue and includes Berni Parker, Blue Eyed Sun, Card Connection, Cinnamon Aitch, Cockadoodle Designs, Fay’s Studio, Handcrafted Card Co, Hotchpotch Publishing, Love From Lemonade, Pearl & Black, Soul UK, Talking Pictures, UK Greetings and Waterloo House Porcelain.
