“Blueprint is thrilled to be working with Snowtap and Kirsty Guthrie from KJG Ltd.,” says Lisa Shand, managing director, Blueprint Collections. “The illustrations and beautiful designs Snowtap creates complement our portfolio perfectly. We are very excited about this beautiful product and new license launch and already have great orders.”
“We are so excited to launch the Collective of Creatures puzzle to the trade this January,” says Emily Charles, head, product development, Gibsons Games. “The Snowtap artwork is absolutely stunning and the humor of the collective nouns is a wonderful bonus. It has been a real pleasure working with Kirsty Guthrie and Snowtap on the design and I can’t wait to see it on shelves at retail and for consumers to enjoy piecing it together.”
“We are thrilled that so many people have enjoyed Snowtap’s illustrations and even more excited that our work is now attracting high-quality licensing partners across a diverse range of categories,” say Gracie Tapner and Susy Snow, founders, Snowtap.
