Spring Fair and NYC Stationery Fair! Feb 11 2019Licensing Trends
It’s been a super busy week for our Advocate agents - Bhavi has been at the Spring Fair trade show at the NEC Birmingham, and agents Amanda, Sam and Atlanta attended the New York stationery and licensing fairs too, all of which has been a tremendous success! During the course of the fair, our agents were meeting up with existing clients, as well as new ones too, discussing with them new artwork, new trends, and new projects!
It was the perfect time to see them, especially as we had our brand new greeting card portfolios, filled with new available designs, by our talented artists. Whilst walking the fairs, it was great to spot some of our artists’ stunning greeting cards and other licensing designs on the stands, made for all occasions. To name a few from the talented bunch include: Lynn Horrabin, Jo Parry, Mikki Butterley, Lisa Alderson, Sophie Hanton, Nicola Evans, Pope Twins, Charlotte Pepper, Joanne Cave and Sarah Goodreau.
The best part of all was finding out that illustrator, Pimlada Phuapradit’s 12 Days of Christmas advent puzzle calendar commission, which she did for Gibson Games, has won the Gift of the Year Award!
At Advocate, we represent a number of great available artists, whose designs have been perfect for greeting cards, puzzles, stationery, wall art and many more products. Scroll through the images above for a little taster of what we have to offer, and if you’d like to see more, just click through to our artist’s portfolios!

We hope you had a wonderful trade show season, we sure did!
