We are back from Atlanta and finally caught up on composing e-mails, making phone calls and writing new deals! It has been a really busy two weeks… thankfully our office is stocked up with lots of delicious Green Mountain Coffee :)
We saw so many fabulous products at the gift show this year! If you want to take a look at the products with our art on them, check out our Facebook photo album by clicking here.
We arrived to the show bright and early Thursday and Friday morning. We started looking for art before the show officially opened and continued until after the show closed. We were beyond excited because we had art on products in all 3 buildings on all sorts of products; including, but not limited to: wall décor, flags, floor mats, puzzles, pillows, cards and tabletop/dinnerware.
We had lots of meetings during those 2 days and showed over 100,000 images! We were prepared with our iPads full of new (and old) art. Every single artist that we represent is available on our iPads. We also had themes pulled to make meetings go smoothly for our customers.
This year the market was buzzing about new trends. The most discussed trends were line art (coloring book art) and GOLD. Line art was everywhere from post cards to pillows and pretty much everything in between. Gold as an accent or typography is also seen on various products, especially on wall décor. If you are interested in seeing some of our line art or gold images, please contact us today!
The Pantone colors of the year (Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue) were also found throughout the show on multiple product categories. Patterns and typography are still very trendy this year. Mixing patterns and typography is even more popular!
The Atlanta Gift show is always a great show for us and this year did not disappoint us. After 2 very busy days of walking/talking/and taking photos we were ready to come home to the quiet state of Vermont. We are already looking forward to the gift show in 2017.
