As the nation remains uncertain over whether lockdown rules will be relaxed this Christmas, UK online print company, Where the Trade Buys has come up with a cracker of an idea for this festive season.
Where the Trade Buys has created a two-metre long Christmas cracker, following a request from a customer who wanted a large-scale version of the seasonal favourite.
And, now the company believes these could become a surprise hit, allowing buyers to personalise them and fill them with their own choice of gifts.
Where the Trade Buys offers a whole range of seasonal items, which can be personalised – from advent calendars to wrapping paper to photobooks – which are traditionally best sellers in the run up to Christmas.
The company believe this year they will be more popular than ever before, given the prospect that families and friends may not be able to get together in the usual way.
The personalised items are also in demand from companies that want their customers and clients who can’t be seen in person to remain brand aware – along with offering some seasonal cheer.
“The cracker was a specific request from a customer that were more than happy to create,” said Gary Peeling, CEO of Where the Trade Buys. “It’s also nice to be able to put a cheerful spin on two metres which for once is not referring to social distancing.
“We have come up with a fantastic range of items that can easily be personalised via our website for Christmas which we believe will be more important than ever this year.”
Amongst the fun items the company has created are its range of life-size “sitees” – full size cut-outs that can be created from uploaded photography to have a fun reminder of a friend or family member.
