We are very excited to show off our new addition to the Dipingo team.

This is Poppy who has joined Harvey and Jess in the office/studio.  She is very cute but does snore very loudly!

Our Walled Nursery Collection is now available to all our stockists.  The full range is now viewable on this blog under our Photographic Collection heading, it will be uploaded to our website shortly.  Here is just one of the twelve designs….

Back in April of this year we announced we would be producing a bespoke collection of cards for The Walled Nursery in Hawkhurst.

This beautiful place has stunning victorian glasshouses which are still in use today producing plants and seedlings for sale in the Nursery.  Having spent several lovely hours over the spring and early summer photographing this gorgeous place we are now at the tricky stage of deciding which images should be used in the final 12 designs.  It is a hard decision and can provoke more than a few ‘discussions’ in the Dipingo design studio.  Here are just a few of the photos we took.

We have just dispatched a large order of cards to the fashion capital Milan, sadly we couldn’t squeeze ourselves into the packing crates….

We have committed to placing 12 adverts in the trade bible that is Progressive Greetings over the coming year.

May and June have already been published and just in case you don’t get that publication we thought we would reproduce the ads here.

Huge congratulations to Trevor Gibbons, owner of Mayther stores, for winning the acclaimed Greeting Card Retailer of the Year.  We have been supplying cards to Trevor (known by us as “Mr. Mayther”) for several years now and it is always a pleasure to see him on our stand at trade shows.  This is his favourite card from our collections….CC7  Ruby

We have finally emerged from PG , a big thank you to all the lovely clients who came to see us and placed orders with us at the show.  It is always great to catch up with some familiar faces and spend some time chatting to our agents and customers.  The organisers of the exhibition produced some dresses made out of greetings cards and several of our cards featured prominently, so we thought you would like to see them.
