CardNest is greetings card subscription service, posting three limited edition greetings cards to its worldwide members each month. The CardNest team works with independent artists from across the world to create their bright and unique monthly collections. All the designs have been exclusively created for CardNest, so cannot be found anywhere else. Each month subscribers find a variety of cards for all sorts of occasions land on their doormat. From birthday to congratulations cards, thank you to new home cards, as well as all-purpose cards, as a lovely way of keeping in touch with loved ones the old fashioned way.
Membership is £7.50/month for those in the UK and £10/month for those outside of the UK, with no contracts or commitments. Our first design for CardNest, ‘Hats Off’ is in the post to their subscribers throughout July, with more coming from us later in the year.

It's 2014! Thank you for all your support throughout 2013, it was a fantastic year for us and we hope we can make 2014 just as memorable. Of course our biggest achievement last year was taking part in the Gromit Unleashed exhibition - which was a huge success and made lots of pounds for Bristol Children's Hospital. But it doesn't end there, the Gromit Unleashed shop is still open in The Mall Cribbs Causeway and we're happy to reveal we now have a figurine of Hullaballoon available to buy. Be quick though as they tend to sell like hot cakes! You can see the little chap below in all his glory (and well done to the person who handpainted him - steady hand skills!)

So its all over! Gromit Unleashed went out with a bang when it had its grand finale of a live auction of all 92 Gromits! It all took place in Bristol on the 3rd October, with Bargain Hunt's presenter, Tim Wonnacott acting as celebrity auctioneer. Unfortunately we couldn't make it due to other commitments but we watched the live auction online to see how much each Gromit would go for.
When Hullaballoon was finally up we were biting our nails down to nothing! We were convinced it wouldn't sell and let everyone down. Luckily we were very, very wrong, Hullaballoon went for a stonking £26,000! It was won in the room, so whoever you are thank you for being so generous! We've put the clip up on Youtube for all to see here.
All in all the auction was a terrific success with all 92 Lots raising an incredible £2.3 million! We couldn't be more proud to be part of such a huge project and as we tell a lot of people, we'll never be part of a bigger art exhibition than this - its just got possible! So thank you to everyone for the support and going to see Hullaballoon, it means the world to us.

Carrying on from our Gromit Unleashed hi-jinx, we were asked by Bristol Post to redesign their masthead in the style of our Gromit. It appeared in print and on their website for one day. It was a fun thing to re-style and an honour to be part of Bristol's biggest paper. Click the image to see it in its full glory!
