'There aren’t enough hours in the day' after the snap General Election generated an influx of orders.

We have produced more than 25,000 rosettes since Prime Minister Theresa May announced Britain would be heading to the polls on June 8.

We would normally has three months to prepare for a political scramble such as this, but the timing of the latest battle announcement left us with a three week deadline.

Mr Wallace, the company's director, said: "When we heard the news it was a mixture of OMG how are we going to do this and elation at the same time.

“It's a case of no pain, no gain.

"Everybody has risen to the challenge and we are getting through the orders on time.

"We like to think we’re the come to company when there is an election and we have produced in excess of 25,000 rosettes across all the political parties.

"We are traditionally busy during this time of the year, so to have the extra challenge to produce more stock is exciting."

The 49 year-old said: "Some days there just aren’t enough hours in the day, as each rosette is individually made.

"It’s down to humans to make the rosettes, pack them and ship them.

"We have had an enquiry from an independent candidate wanting rosettes in bright pink, which proves to us that people are out there campaigning with all colours of the rainbow."

On top of the political demand the company we still meeting deadlines for clients ordering rosettes for flowers, horse and agricultural shows.

During this spell we have welcomed BBC Breakfast, The Lancashire Telegraph and BBC Radio Lancashire for them to do pieces on this busy time.
