We are back from our Summer Break and finally caught back up from the huge backlog of orders received over that week (which is why this newsletter is little delayed going out to you lol!) Thank you for your patience whilst we had our well deserved break, but we are now back to business as usual… The end of our summer holiday now means we are starting with the very busy run up to December and fulfilling all your lovely orders. Be sure to get any orders in early for Christmas to allow us to get them to you as soon as possible!

Hints and Tips!
In this newsletter we thought we would continue giving you some hints and tips. Hopefully they help both new and experienced customers!
Downloading and accessing your free templates after purchase…
We offer free downloadable blank templates in png format for most of our shapes (except circles, and rectangles). Links will be emailed to you after your purchase, but they can also be accessed from your account page on our website. Sign in, and go to “My Account” – which is along the top – then click “Downloads” from the list on the left. Download the templates you need, and then open them up in your design software and get creative!
What to do if there is a problem with your order…
We hope that all your orders are correct and undamaged when they reach you, however if this is not the case then we apologise. You will have received a “Thank you for your order” card with your order which tells you where to go on our website to find our Shortage/Damage/Incorrect Item Form. Please DON’T EMAIL but fill this in as we can then process your request as soon as possible.
One Item – Three Ways!
We have all the letters of the alphabet – plus an ampersand and numbers – available in XXL A5 and XL A6 sizes! Perfect for putting together words to display for special occasions. We used our A6 size to spell out “Boo” in 3 ways!
Bunting: Bunting is a popular decoration for celebrations and a great way to decorate the outside or inside of party venues! Here we have used twine to string our word together…why not spell other words like TRICK, TREAT, SPOOKY etc. to decorate even further?!
Table Display: Using our mini display clips we were able to create a great display for a table! The letters are perfect to be used as a center piece for displays for all occasions such as: Halloween, Christmas, Birthdays, Anniversary parties, weddings and more!
Wall Art: The letters can also be displayed on the wall, allowing you to position them however you want – and not just in a straight line! A great piece able to be used year after year for parties or special occasions, to add a unique and personal touch!
