GDMK Images Summer 2019 Update

  • Epping and Ongar Diesel Gala
  • KWVR Diesel Gala
  • Severn Valley Railway Spring Diesel Gala
  • East Kirkby Lancs n Tanks
  • Daks Over Duxford

New Products

Our new personalised railway gifts, especially the replica loco panels, have gone down an absolute storm as have our D-Day 75 Commemorative gifts. Thanks for the great feedback on these products!

Bumps in the Road

We have been quiet recently following a health scare for our embroidery partner. All is well now, but it had a knock on effect to orders, so apologies if any of you have been affected. As a result we have decided to invest in a second embroidery machine which will allow us to increase our capacity whilst our partner can take it a bit easier. Our new embroidered railway and aviation designs were well recieved at recent shows but we havent been able to get them online. I am intending to add them this week!

We have had a couple of weeks off the show circuit whilst we get on top of everything, especially getting to grips with the new embroidery software.

Upcoming Shows

We will be out again for the Armed Forces Day in Mansfield on 30th June so if you are in the area drop by and say hi!

The following weeks looks like this

  • Flying Legends
  • DRS Carlisle Open Day
  • Marham Families Day
  • East Kirkby Airshow
  • Military Odyssey

If you are planning to visit any of these shows come and say hello!

Society and Fund Raising

We have been busy with supplying various Societies with merchandise for their fund raising stalls and are delighted to have added several new societies.

We are extremely pleased to have been asked to supply the BBMF, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, with printed and embroidered merchandise. The Western Loco Association, Woodhead Railway Group and 466th Bomb Group at Attlebridge have also kindly ordered various fund raising items. There is also an interesting job involving 50008 in development!

Our regulars including the Network Southeast Society, Southern Electric Group, Class 37 Loco Group, Lincolnshire Lancaster Association, The Spitfire Society and the Class 45/1 Society have been busy filling their stalls with our products so if you see these groups out and about, make sure you drop by and buy something to help them raise much needed funds!

Alamy Editorial Portfolio

Time has been precious this last few months and unfortunately I havent added any new editorial images to my Alamy Portfolio, but nevertheless licences have been good.

If you need editorial pictures for your publication then check out my Alamy portfolio – there is a wide range of image subject matter and styles as can be seen below. These images have recently been generating enquiries and licences.

This brings you pretty much up to date on where we are at the moment. We would like to thank you all very much for your support over the last few months. We are very much looking forward to getting back on the road again, starting with a home town event in the shape of Mansfields Armed Forces Day on 30th June.

If we dont see you there, hopefully we will see you at another event this summer!

Thanks for reading and all the best

Gary, Dawn & Kay
