Claire ‘The Power’ Cheng takes £500 darts prize!

PG Live is renowned as a show where ‘business meets pleasure’,
something Emotional Rescue took to the next level by turning its stand
into a pub – called the Stoat & Scrotum.
We will always remember the moment we saw Claire ‘The Power’ Cheng take the oche. We hope she has a wonderful time away.
Two runner-up prizes of £50 retail vouchers went to Cards Galore buyer Trish Corner and UKG’s Gary Head

WOW! Doors are open at The Stoat & Scrotum

Check the Ye Oldie watering hole of ER at PG LIVE 2018.From all accounts, the stand has been busy and the darts comp has already began! 180!!!

Male Gift QC Sample Land!

The 'production samples' of Xpressions male gift lines have started to arrive.  First were fridge magnets and now Pint Glasses and Tankards!

WOW! New PHOTO fridge magnets!

Get your laughing gear around these PHOTO FRIDGE MAGNETS. Side-splitting gags about getting older, drinking and birthdays in general, mean this fresh, funky and rather pokey little addition is guaranteed to give everyone a good giggle!


The new supplement of Focus On Progressive Humour will be landing shortly. This is our opportunity to shine and also plug our theme for PG LIVE, 'The Classic and Traditional English Pub'.


We have put out an advert on social media this week as we seek new creative juice, or as the advert puts it, "We quite often cream ourselves over a good joke!"

Seriously Just Kidding - Sales Update

Following on from Toni and Mark's visit to UKG's head office yesterday, news reached us that WHSmith had decided to add Seriously Just Kidding to their main 2018 Christmas plan. Traditionally ranges need to be established in Everyday before introducing to seasons.

The everyday range has also been moved up the test schedule to April, so all the noises are very positive.

Thanks to everyone involved in the concepts, range launch, boards and presentation material.  (Special thanks also to efforts in turning around Seriously Test POS this week)

Dare I say it's been a very 'Serious' week.....


THE BIG SCREEN IS A GO-GO..... and just in time for the GOLD CUP!! We had better get the sweepstake ready! 

Daily Mail - 'With us' or 'Against us'?

Daily Mail - 'With us' or 'Against us'? Either way they have once again enhanced the public profile of our Wit & Wisdom books. In this particular case, 'With & Wisdom of Mum' just in time for Mother's Day!

Snow alert

Hi Guys


 The office tomorrow and all do some work from home.


We will also close today at 3.00pm as the traffic will become heavy into the evening rush hour and roads somewhat snarled.





If you can’t make it into the office please let your line manager or another manager know as soon as possible ….. if it’s that bad and we do have to take the decision to close the office completely we will of course contact you as soon as possible to let you know.
