Where it all began...
In May 2016, Nicholas and Ross took the plunge and exhibited at Progressive Greetings Live, the biggest trade show dedicated just to greetings cards.
They had done their research, booked the smallest stand possible and had their cards ready to be displayed to the world.
This was to be their first trade show they had ever done, and their most defining.
On the first day, the boys met Hazel and the buying team from Paperchase.
This was their life-changing opportunity to tell Hazel and the girls all about the brand, how it started, what they stood for and to show them their designs.
Within 2 months, Paperchase had placed the biggest order TG&C had to date, with an additional order for their much loved Wizard Bear Valentines card to be sold in every Paperchase.
This was a truly magical moment for the boys and a lifelong dream for Nicholas to have his designs being sold in the design-led brand.
Today, our original cards can still be bought with the addition of new designs to keep the collection fresh and are available at Paperchase's throughout the UK.
