Website Improvements

October 28th, 2014

You should be finding our website even easier to use then every before!

 

We have made a few changes to our website to make it easier for you to find what you’re looking for, as we know we have lots and lots of wholesale gifts to search through which can often be very time consuming.

 

You can now down your search by searching through a particular ‘collection‘ (see below). This enables you to search through any of our licenses or own designed collections.

 

new menu 1 star editions

 

You will also see a section to search by ‘Product Type’ (see below). This enables you to search by any of our wholesale products. This is likely to come in very useful, as not every product is available in every collection. You may just be looking for mugs, so by using this tool you are now able to search for the product you are interested in (and to narrow it down even further, search the collection you are interested in at the same time).

 

new menu 2 star editions

 

You are still able to enter your own search term, however, you can search within particular collections or product types. For example, below we have searched for ‘Yorkshire’ in ‘Greetings Cards’ and have been given 86 results.

 

new menu 3 star editions

We hope you like these new changes, and you find the ordering process quick and easy!

Beautiful new collections

October 3rd, 2014

We are very lucky to have the pleasure of working with some of the most talented illustrators around the UK. We have just added two brand new collections to our website, and updated another.

Dave Thompson

First is Dave Thompson’s new collection. Thompson is based in Southsea, Portsmouth. His artwork fits in perfectly with our already extremely successful licensed ranges. Our biggest selling range of wholesale products is the National Railway Museum vintage rail posters, which Thompson’s work is heavily inspired by. Thompson revisits the classic era of poster design, recreated in the vibrant tones of 1950s travel art.



                      BRIGHTONPIERhearstcastlealbertroadtopshampool



Thompson has many designs of the Portsmouth area, but also of the rest of the UK, and abroad. Each of his designs is available on all of our wholesale gift products, including prints, canvases, tea towels, magnets, postcards and greeting cards. As with all of our collections, our minimums are small so trying out these new collections is risk free, although we know you’ll be back for more! Browse through all of Thomson’s designs here.



Robert Antell

Next we have a very special collection indeed, from pastel artist, Robert Antell. Robert Antell is a full time artist,  based in the South West of England. These absolutely stunning images depict calming beach scenes from the British coast. The marvellous thing about this collection is that the text underneath the images is completely customisable, giving you the freedom to make sure the products fit in with your customers lifestyles.



            Vintage Paper Background Vintage Paper Background Vintage Paper Background Vintage Paper Background



This customisable range of images is also available on our entire collection of British wholesale gift products (produced here in our factory in Needham Market). This range has been are fastest growing range, and has proven to be extremely popular in coastal towns. Have a look though all of the designs here.



Peter Spells

The Peter Spells collection has also had a revamp, as Peter sends us more fabulous artwork. Like Dave Thompson, Spells’ artwork is very much inspired by the vintage travel posters, but with a modern twist, full of interesting shapes and lines, with bold, vibrant colours making the artwork come alive. The latest additions to the collection are designs of Lewes, East Sussex, and Cornwall.



SPELLS042 SPELLS035 SPELLS036 SPELLS043



Again, all of Peter Spells designs are available on every product you could hope to stock, including phone socks, iPad sleeves, T-Shirts and mugs! Just visit the Peter Spells section here and select what products you would like, for fast delivery in time for the Christmas shopping season.

August 15th, 2014

We have another new and exciting license to add to our collection at Star Editions Ltd.

We have recently started working with the NMRN, and have a beautiful collection of vintage posters from their archives available to print on all of our usual gift products. The majority of the posters are wartime posters, from the first and second World War and encourage support and for people to be cautious about telling friends and family what they know.

World War One Centenary Products

August 5th, 2014

At 11pm, On August 4th 1914, Britain declared war on Germany.

You will have seen a great deal of coverage on the First World War already this year, and this will continue throughout the next four years, as we remember all that happened from 1914 – 1918

 

Star Editions Ltd launched a wonderful Imperial War Museums collection of gift products earlier this year, to coincide with the centenary. We have a beautiful selection of old war posters from both WW1 and WW2. The posters were originally used in the war to encourage men to sign up, and to encourage people to support the war effort. These propaganda posters are becoming hugely popular this year, and their popularity will continue to grow as the centenary gains more media coverage.

Each image we have is available in all our products, from a poster, mug or magnet, to a mounted and framed giclee art print or stretched canvas. We have a product to fit every type of shop and every budget.

Moomin Summer Madness!

July 23rd, 2014

 

Moomin Summer Madness!


There’s a lot to look forward to over the next few weeks for Moomin fans, as Tove Jansson’s 100th birthday is approaching Fast. The Moomin author and illustrator was born in Helskini on August 9th 1914.
 


 

MOOMIN-FSDU

The Moomins first came into existence in 1945, when Tove published the first Moomin book, ‘The Moomins and the Great Flood’. The books have since been translated into 40 different languages and have been adapted for TV, Film, Opera and Radio.

 

The Moomin comic strip ran for 20 years in 120 different newspapers, reaching approximately 20 million readers a day!

 

The Moomins are still hugely popular, with Moomin merchandise being snapped by consumers up and down the UK every day.

 

Many of our customers have already started buying in our Moomin products, with fantastic results! It is now one of our top three product ranges!

 

If you haven’t tried the products out in your shop yet, now is the time to, as Moomin will be receiving a huge amount of publicity over the next few weeks, especially with the ‘Moomin Summer Madness‘ event taking place in Covent Garden on August 9th and 10th, and many other events taking place world-wide throughout the year! Why not join in with the Moomin madness and hold your own event?

 

In our Moomin collection we have 11 x 14 prints, postcards, tea towels, magnets, canvases and postcard packs. We also offer a range of Moomin merchandising solutions!

Miffy Turns 59…

June 20th, 2014

Miffy was created by Dick Bruna in 1955, when telling his young son a story about a little rabbit they had seen on a rainy holiday, playing in the dunes…

 

MIFFY002

She has since lived a very exciting 59 years! Miffy has visited the zoo, learnt how to ride a bike, made friends at school, and more recently- turned her hand to art in ‘Miffy the Artist’!

 
This year we have seen the release of some new ‘Thoroughly Modern Miffy’ books. Award-winning poet, Tony Mitton, has been revamping some Miffy classics to appeal more to a modern British audience. So far ‘Miffy at the Gallery’ and ‘Miffy at the Zoo’ have been released, with more titles to come throughout the year.

 
The Miffy books have sold over 85 million copies worldwide, and the brand is said to be worth £150 million! A lot of this revenue comes from merchandise, which is where we come in!

 
We are extremely pleased to be a licensed manufacturer and wholesaler of Miffy merchandise! We recently launched a whole range of ridiculously cute Miffy products! We have mini posters, postcards, postcard packs, A6 magnetic notepads, magnets, tote bags and tea towels!

D-Day 70 year anniversary

June 6th, 2014
Let us go forward- Winston Churchill WW2 Poster

Let us go forward together- Winston Churchill WW2 Poster

70 years ago today, British, US and Canadian soldiers stepped bravely onto the beaches of Normandy, Northern France. This was the first stage of ‘Operation Overlord’, the invasion of Nazi occupied Europe, and the start of what was the eventual end of the harrowing Second World War.

 

Brave soldiers some even younger than 18, as it was common for boys to lie about their age as they wanted to support their fathers, brothers, uncles and cousins and fight for their country, got out of  boats and stepped foot onto the beaches. Many knew they may never see home again, but had no choice but to be brave and carry on. As many as 4,413 allied troops died on the day of the invasion. Within 11 months of D-Day, Nazi Germany was defeated.

 

Today around 650 remaining British veterans, now in their late 80’s and 90’s visit Normandy to remember and take part in the remembrance ceremony.

 

You may have seen our previous posts about our WW1 posters, but in this collection of Imperial War Museum images we have plenty of WW2 posters, encouraging people to support the war effort. These prints and gift products are selling fantastically well, especially with this year being the centenary of the beginning of the First World War. Have a look through the whole range and stock your shop with these wonderful gifts.
