Spring Trade Fair - our display
Another 5 days spent at the NEC, Birmingham at the International Spring Fair - well, that's 5 days of the show, but another 2 days setting up. We had alot of interest in what we'd planned for our display this year, so the following will reveal all.
This year we are rebranding slightly and will be using a colour palette of autumn/spring colours - yellow, green, orange and brick, all chosen from the Farrow and Ball range of paints.
Blocks of colour were painted onto the wall as a backdrop to the various card designs. We had to carefully work out the size of each block of colour, depending on how many cards were to be displayed - fiddly to mark up, but worth it.
We then stencilled some large scale animals above the blocks - stencilled which we'd cut beforehand - sheep (of course!), hen, dog, cat and hare.
We used string from which to peg the cards - the string was painted in our colours, as were the pegs - it was much admired by many - inexpensive and very eye catching. So much so that we now have to replicate it several times for some of our retailers.
