Brand picks up Best Cute Range at greeting card industry awards.

It only launched 18 months ago, but Over the Moon's Pip character has topped a successful period at retail with a win at last week's Henries Awards.

The brand picked up the Best Cute Range at the ceremony, which took place at the Lancaster London, on October 7th.

Pip designs can now be purchased in 500 outlets across the UK, including Fenwicks and all branches of John Lewis. Strong sales are also being reported in France, Germany, Finland, Italy, Switzerland, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Australia. Designs are also available online.

"I am absolutely delighted with this award," said Over the Moon's Karen Bendy. "We're really proud of Pip and it's wonderful for him to be honoured by the industry."

Pip is also building up its presence in the licensing sector, with KJG on board.
