New Themes for Father’s Day 2018

F Day themes blog

Here at thortful HQ we’ve been brainstorming some particularly Dad-related topics to inspire your Father’s Day designs! From classic ‘Dad’ TV shows, to current trends to adapt for the occasion, read our hotlist to get inspired:

 

Sports and Hobbies:

Football – think specific teams rather than football in general: Dads can be very loyal to their particular team and often pass this onto their kids!

Other Sports: rugby, cricket and golf.

Fishing (this is supposedly the most popular hobby in the UK!).

Hobbies you participated in with Dad when growing up: Airfix, Scalextric, Trains, Lego.

Pets:

From the dog

From the cat

Cat/dog themed

TV and Film:

Think about characters and quotes or catchphrases which might tie in well!

Blackadder

Fawlty Towers

Only Fools and Horses

Dad’s Army

Alan Partridge (I’m Alan Partridge)

Top Gear

Bottom

Victor Meldrew (One Foot in the Grave)

James Bond

Peter Kay

Current trending topics:

Politics (or political figures) – think Trump, Corbyn etc.

Peaky Blinders

Game of Thrones

Memes

We want our Father’s Day 2018 collection to stand out from the crowd, and for you guys to make lots of sales on your designs, so we hope these ideas help you to feel inspired!

Remember to search the site before designing and uploading, in order to make sure your design is offering something unique and is unlike anything we already have on thortful.

Get your Father’s Day designs uploaded to the site by Monday 7th May to ensure they get considered for this year’s collection!

COMING SOON: Sock Cards!

Test sock card asset 2

We’ve been looking at ways we can give customers an extra reason to buy your thortful cards, and we’ve come up with a quirky little addition: Sock cards! And what better time to launch than Father’s Day?

This will be available as an add-on for all of our cards, giving Father’s Day customers the option to add a lovely Dad-style pair of socks to their card, and send their dad some love with something a little bit different!

Your designs will still be featured on the front of the card, but it will take on a box-shape format to hold the socks safely inside. Your name will be printed on the spine of the card instead of on the back, and any message that the customer chooses to add will be printed on the inside left of the card box.

We’re really looking forward to setting ourselves apart from the competition this Father’s Day, and with your unique designs, and a clever add-on such as our sock cards, we’ll be giving customers all the more reason to shop with us. And of course, more customers for thortful means more royalties for you guys  🙂
