Paul Black, Brand Director at Andersen Press, comments: “2022 was a record sales year for Elmer books so it’s great to see Elmer licensing growing too. We’re on a mission to increase Elmer’s visibility and accessibility to all families so it’s especially exciting that Elmer products will be gracing so many new stands at the trade fairs in 2023“.

We’re finding it’s this, alongside his popularity and signature patchwork which is highly motivating to potential partners.
