2017: a look back at the year

photo cutout boards 2017

2017 was a great year for face in hole boards!

In 2017 our photo cutout board sales have more than tripled as businesses, charities, wedding planners and corporate event planners have embraced the fun factor and engagement value that’s built into every one of our boards. We’ve made some important quality and safety improvements, added new boards to our standard and seasonal ranges, and improved our logistics to get the boards out to customers’ venues ever more quickly and efficiently.

We can honestly say that we’re here to stay, as we have carved out our niche in the event planning space and watched our boards grow in popularity more than we’d ever thought possible. So a huge thank you to all our customers – it’s been an outstanding 2017!

Some of the best boards of 2017

Mrs Brown’s Boys

Mrs Brown's Boys board for the BBC

Feckin’ brilliant! Agnes Brown from the hit BBC TV show featured on this board we made for the BBC’s EdFest. At their request, we contoured the top to fit into the location it was used. This is something we can do for you if you prefer, rather than a standard rectangular shape.

Cussons Carex

2017 photo cutouts face in hole boards

This was a great example of a brand running a promotion using a photo cutouts board. With special competition packaging for their hand soap, combined with social media hashtags promoted on our boards and a promotional partnership with Alton Towers, Cussons did it right.

Seabroook Crisps

Photo cutout board marketing

Another competition board, this time from Seabrook Crisps. They are very active on social media and their #seabrookselfie hashtag has generated a lot of posts and shares as people try to win boxes of tasty crisps!

Nuts Over The Atlantic

Nuts over the Atlantic

These brave lads are rowing across the Atlantic right now for the Movember Foundation to raise funds to help with testicular and prostate cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. We seriously hope they don’t encounter too many sharks and make it across safely!

The National Trust

2017 face in hole board for national trust

The NT have used us on several occasions for their properties around the country. This board was for Wordsworth House and Garden. We gave it a period flavour that worked perfectly for their event.

Peter James

Peter James 2017 photo cutout board

Bestselling novelist Peter James’ Roy Grace novel Need You Dead was launched in Brighton in May. His publicist commissioned this board from us for fans to photograph themselves in as they waited for his autograph.

Oinkfest

Mead Farm Oinkfest

Mead Farm came to us in 2017 wanting a face in hole board for their pig-based event, Oinkfest. This one led to some very funny photos!
