Paper Craft

Now the summer holidays are upon us I know there are many parents out there desperate to keep their little ones entertained and out of trouble. I also know how many customers we have that are young at heart and would appreciate a little article on the fine art of paper craft.

Refresh Cartridges Mock Advertisement

Joshua Noble, Martin Fuchs, and Philip Whitfield created this...

As such I decided to have a little look around online for the latest offerings in the increasingly weird world of the pen drive. The most innovative drive of my search was the ‘Flashkus’ by Russian design studio Art. Lebedev. Based on the theory they are soon to...
