I went to the Top Drawer trade show at Earls Court in London last Monday. I always find going to giftware fairs inspiring and love having a look at what all of the designers are up to and seeing what new products they have. Some of the companies that stood out for me were Lollipop designs, Alice Palace and NineteenSeventyThree. Lollipop have some adorable card sets which come with a little bird stamp, so that you can print the bird onto the cards wherever you want. I love Alice Palace’s cards – they are really cute and creative. I especially like the way they are prints which have originated from textured pieces of artwork. Ninteenseventythree produce stationary by licensed artists which include some of my personal favourite illustrators / designers – Jon Burgerman, Tado and Sukie.
