Father’s Day should be everyday, but since it comes once a year, give him something personal and heartfelt – send a Father’s Day greeting card.

Father’s Day is held on the third Sunday of June in the UK.  It is a day to honour
fathers and celebrate fatherhood.  This year it falls on Sunday 15th June.

For 2015 our Father’s Day range consists of 27 designs in total.  We have a great
reputation amongst our retailers for good solid male ranges.  Our top performers
include a number of humorous, photographic designs, along with bright text based and strong traditional scenes.

Exclusively for our newsroom readers, please find below an image from our
Father’s Day 2015 range.

The success of the London 2012 Games has spurred on a huge growth in cycling across the country.

Cycling is increasingly popular around Nigel Quiney’s head office in Saffron Walden due to the appearance on Monday 7th July of the Tour de France through the town centre.  The whole area is feeling the excitement of the event.

The third stage in the three week race starts in Cambridge and then moves into Essex and travelling down Saffron Walden’s High Street before heading to London to finish on The Mall in front of Buckingham Palace.

The resurgence in cycling is also being shown in greeting card sales. The second most popular design behind football in our Man’s World range illustrates a bike racing scene.
