1) Post the ticket to our .
2) Call our .
3) Order via our customer account .
The account webshop allows direct access to your individual bespoke display and our entire product catalogue.

The plan and service I have received since switching to IC&G’s Stock Control, has resulted in increased sales compared to my old supplier. IC&G have provided me with a bespoke service to my exact requirements. The quick turnaround of reorders, was another major factor in switching to IC&G’s Stock Control.
