Thanks to everyone’s for their support with our prep for this week’s trading review at Tesco.  Overwhelmingly positive feedback from the buying team, soundbites being:


Emotional Rescue considered amongst Top 5 category partners


We were the ‘Star of the Show’ in this year’s Father’s Day range (In what was a tough season for many)


Loved new Virtual Safari & OTC Captions refresh + Seriously Just Kidding


Chris and Mark will follow up all sales opportunities over the coming days, with Sara & Lauren (The Buyers) planning to come across to ER Towers in August.



From all of us at ER Towers, welcome Chris!

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!"

Royalties Flood In!

Our first royalty statement for book sales has just arrived!

Royalties on sales for the last quarter of last year were £104,000

(combined for first 4 books!)

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!
