Father's Day Ideas + a teaser of upcoming New Shapes! ūüĒ®

It’s full steam ahead in this issue as we have some brilliant Father’s Day ideas, and also many more brand new product releases with a small teaser for further fantastic products being added to our range throughout this year!

We have an awesome project for this issue – all about Board Games, Game Accessories, and Keepsakes aimed at adult gamers – a niche but growing market!

A quick disclaimer: the Board Game designs and ideas in our project are not targeted at creating children’s toys. There are regulations surrounding the testing of products for children to ensure safety (and it can be a bit of a minefield!), so it is solely up to you if you wish to pursue an avenue of marketing towards a younger audience and getting your items tested. We’ve had many ideas aimed at adults in various themes from our Design Teams – some featured in this project – more listed in the Luxury Gift Set category on the site, so please check them all out!

Finally, Father’s Day is coming up quick – on Sunday 18th June – so get your orders for this occasion in sooner rather than later…

Important Dates:

  • Father’s Day – Sunday 18th June
  • Summer Shutdown – 28th August to¬†1st September (We re-open Monday 4th September!)

May/June Free Gift

May and June’s Free Gift is… 3-fold!¬†Firstly, following our bumper pack of pieces in the last 2 months orders, we are returning to the smaller packs of test pieces in each order as before, but in May/June we will be including a few pieces of thicker 0.7 mm in each, for you to sample/trial…

Secondly, in May we will be giving you a taster set of board game items – a Coaster sized plaque and 10 discs for you to create your take on a Noughts and Crosses board!

New Products

Customer ‘Share To Win’ Photos

In this issue’s Share To Win we have a brilliant Guitar Clock by Gary Perkins using our Giant A4 Classic Electric Guitar Shape! A fantastic clock for any music fans, but it would also make a great Father’s Day gift…

We also have Mark Pierce’s awesome Bar Sign using our A5 Ricoh size in Mirror Silver! The mirror silver finish works perfectly with the minimalistic design! This is another great gift idea, especially for those with their own Bar space at home…

New Shape Showcase!

We have plans for some fun product releases this year! We launched our Cat, Plane, and Triceratops Shapes recently in our April update email, and we have much more yet to come.

Now we have a brand new Meeple Shape to show to you – perfect for Board Games! The first of our token shapes, available in 8 sizes and can be used for game counters, scoreboards, or even game related accessories! Pawn/Chess Piece shapes will follow…

We also have a few new jewellery pendants with inserts being added to our website that slot nicely into our existing pendant collection.

As per 2 requests on our Wish List, we are developing some fantastic Gym Themed shapes. Look out for a dumbbell, kettlebell, and boxing glove punching their way onto our website very soon…

This is a great time to remind you about what our Wish List is all about! It is a way to suggest new shapes to us that you think would be a good addition to our website. We investigate all suggestions to see whether the shape is viable to be added, however we cannot guarantee a time frame in which we will complete the request as things can be very unpredictable within our design schedule!

Furthermore, we have future plans for two variations of Bicycle shapes, another Dinosaur shape, a Lego Style Figure shape, plus a whole collection of Fantasy (incl. Alice in Wonderland inspired!), Forest, Garden, and Steampunk related shapes! And that’s only just a small teaser of what to keep an eye out for this year…


Happy Sublimating, and have a fab Coronation Weekend – see you after the Bank Holiday!
