Shy Bairns Get Nowt New Geordie Mug and other newness

New stuff on our website including our fantabulous new Shy Bairns Get Nowt Mug which means Shy children get nothing. Meaning if you don’t go for it you’ll end up with nothing Its kind of a Geordie Mantra and something that helped when me and Jane were setting up the Geordie Biz.  It looks better in real life (a bit like myself hehe!)

New Design

Just revised a design as the old design wasn't selling too well - it was dark in colour. Love this one fits in well with the rest of the range too.  Ramped up production now.  Printing is now taking place in Geordieland so  been getting that all sorted this week.  Didn't get through to the finals of the Entrepeneurs challenge but did get a full page feature in a newspaper from it which has led to a new customer.  We are currently selling around 4500 cards per month now which is mad isn't it?  More still to follow.....

More Geordie card designs

Another busy week - really great one for design - firstly me and Jane got our first massive order through for Waterstones the book shops so are supplying them in the NE now!  YIPPEE  More new designs are being requested all the time so heres the latest ones (Cleva and Gannin) can't believe we've now got 34 cards in the range (not including the seasonal cards) - only started with four designs originally!  Had to squeeze in a couple of stationery designs for my lovely agent Rory for Surtex next weekend in New  York.  Phew! Totally love it - closing date for IWCYC (Entrepeneurs challenge) is today so fingers xd we'll be shortlisted! ITS ALL GOOD!

My Space Designs!

How fab - just noticed that a piece of work I did last year for RJB Stone is now out as a big cushion and a little alien cushion. RJB Stone are the lovely people who brought the owl cushion which has sold loads all over the world and been copied over and over.  Hope my stuff does as well!
