Even though stationery buyers like to see samples a good few months in advance, we're pretty crap at designing out-of-season; it's so much easier drawing Christmas cards when you're knee-deep in Christmas.
Baubles aside, we've made a few other styles this last month, like this small series of woodcut cards (though, more honestly, they're collages). Not sure whether to print four-colours or just black'n'white like The Patterned Pals range they'll be replacing.
Though I'll sure be sorry to loose The Patterned Pals (alongside the other styles we've had printed elsewhere over the years), I'm convinced that they made a better economic model than an ecological one; hand-printing to order is simply too efficient!
Whatever the colour, I like the electrified 80s hedgehog best.
