I've had a few technical issues in the last few days, but P&P is back just in time to showcase some flyers for the latest Blue Print show which opens today. Blue Print 8 is an online Christmas event that runs from November 30th to December 2nd. Art buyers and directors can get on board with the show here. Scroll down to see just some of the beautiful designs that will be available. We start with a selection from the brilliant Brenda Manley Designs.

Next up flyers from Peppyink who'll be showing Christmas, Halloween and everyday print and patterns suitable for all surfaces.
