A look at PG Live 2015

We had a fantastic show at Progressive Greetings LIVE 2015 and couldn't believe the great response we had with our new HUB - inspiring experimental creations on pop-up releases! Look out for them on the high street or in your local boutique greeting card shop.

Our fashionably fresh collection for 2015 - Darling Denim. Influenced by the fondness we have for the amazingly versatile fabric ‘denim’, ever present on the catwalks of Paris, London, New York and our collection features on their very own catwalk at PG Live! Photographic shades of blue provide the garment backdrop to our loose, fine black line fashion drawings to create a feminine range that celebrates friendship with our forever friend DENIM….

Our NEW 2015 Everyday collection, featuring new modern stationery and giftware offerings from our creative collection Quill.

Some of the lucky 21 who received a gift from us to celebrate 21 years of Belly Button Designs!

Keep a look out for NEW range of male sends in our award winning collection Platinum!

Running for the "Hills"

He may put this down to mid-life insanity but one of our fabulous agents - Robin Hill, is running the Lakeland 50 for the Great North Air Ambulance Service

The Great North Air Ambulance Service provide emergency medical cover to a vast area of the North of England - appoximately 5500 square miles with a population of 3.5 million. Time and time again there has been a need established for the Air Ambulance who have an aim to provide the best quality care for the people of the region - "our region!"

“A back injury 15 years ago stopped me running so I am mindful that one of us may need the Air Ambulance to finish the run” jokes Robin who is now a born again runner and will be taking part on July 25th -26th with team members Sean Read and Peta Romand.

The Lakeland 50 is no small feat but one of the greatest ultra running challenges in Europe. As the name suggests competitors complete 50 miles of fell running through the Lake District - double the distance of a marathon. These trainers may not look so shiny and new after!

Robin we say you are one fantastic guy who is doing something really magnificent and we admire you for your efforts!!!

To help Robin support the Great North Ambulance Service you can donate simply, fast and totally secure through Robin's JustGiving page - click here.

We won't be the only ones cheering you on, GOOD LUCK - love the Belly Buttons x
