A New Range for 2018 from Carousel Calendars
For 2017-dated products, Carousel Calendars saw a number of increases in key areas, and distribution reached a record high for the company. Over 1,300 calendar, diary and gift-wrap titles were distributed by the Exeter-based publishers, the highest total to date, and over one hundred of these were to the North American market. This growth into the US market also meant that the number of titles published has increased compared to 2016. Other successes for the company include further growth in the volume to key distributors, as well as to the independent market and to garden centres.
A Look at What’s to Come
Looking ahead to the 2018 range, there are a number of strong titles included as they continue to perform well, along with some new products, licenses and even formats.
The Mum’s Fabric range has been so consistently popular that the collection has grown to now include a Family Organiser, A4 calendar, Easel and an A5 diary. The Fashion Diary collection has always sported beautiful and colourful covers and 2018’s array is especially on trend, with a sloth design and a vintage floral design available, among others.
A new format that has been introduced for 2018 is the 2-Year Pocket Planner. Shaped like a slim pocket diary, but with insides designed like a small month-to-view calendar grid that covers 24 months, this new product is both practical and good value for money.
Exciting New Products for 201
Carousel Calendars is pleased to be once again working with some of the top licenses and brands, and there are some delightful new additions for 2018. This includes two calendars, a Slim and a Wall, that feature beautiful vintage art of popular British locations by Tabitha Mary. Also new to Carousel’s range is the well known and instantly recognisable Eddie Stobart brand, with a new Wall calendar available that uses this iconic look and will appeal to all Stobart fans.
Carousel Calendars combine self-designed and published products with a choice pick distribution of those they consider the best from UK and US markets to create a one-stop shop for all customer needs.
