Vote! In this election

Vote for the Dr screenprint by Barry D Bulsara












Today is the day to vote in the British General Election, polling stations nationwide have been open since early morning.   If you have the option of voting, we hope you are heading to the polling stations today, or perhaps you have already cast your vote, you organised creatures you!


Inspired by living across the road from his local polling station, Barry D Bulsara thought as an alternative to putting up the usual political party posters in his window, he’d do something that was more his style, it would seem he’d like to have voted for the Doctor!

Say Cheers to your Dad! 🍻🐶

Cheers Fathers Day Blog feat Gemma Correll and Ohh DeerWith the help of Ohh Deer and one of our all time favourite illustrators Gemma Correll. We’re giving a great big Cheers to all the awesome Dad’s out there. With Father’s Day on the 18th of June, you’ve still got plenty time to make sure you get just the right gift for the big man in your life.


As you might have guessed, Red is our favourite Colour and we think Gemma might be a fan too. We can’t get enough of her humour and we always love to hear the chuckle 😂 from the card section as people emerge with a handful of her cards with their distinctive red and white stripey envelopes.


Cheers Dad by Gemma Correll


Her teaming up with Ohh Deer has meant that her collection has grown over the years making her illustration accessible to all, from cards to mugs and everything in between.


gemma correll, humour, cards, illustration,mugs


Dogs and Coffee. Two of most dad’s favourite things. We’re sure he’d love a CaPUGccino made in this cool mug.


battersea power station


This print of the works at Battersea Power Station by Georgia Boston x Cecily Vessey is a match made in heaven with our Red window. Cecily couldn’t help but be fascinated by the building works going on at the site of Battersea Power Station. This reminds us a lot of our Dad’s too and their obsession of cranes and big machinery.


bikes, cycling, raleigh, rebecca kaye


If your Dad loves anything on Two Wheels and cycling  then he’ll love this print inspired by the Raleigh Bike Builders by Rebecca Kaye.


The Big Lebowski by Crispin Finn


Friday night was often movie night 🍿in our house. If your Dad is a big movie buff then we’re sure The Big Lebowski is in his collection. In these fab movie prints by Crispin Finn, they have painstakingly recreated each item from the movie in graphic form.  It is these often overlooked objects and details that give classic films their edge and help draw you into the make believe world. Use the key included with the prints to spot each item as you watch the movie together. 🙂


We hope this has given you some great ideas for Father’s Day or any day where you’re looking for some fab Red and White themed Goodies for your nearest and dearest.


 



Say Cheers to your Dad! 🍻🐶

Gone Fishing!🎣

Gone Fishing Blog


Things are getting a little fishy round here………… We’ve got lots of Fish and Sea inspired prints in the gallery this week. They’d all make perfect gift for good old Dad this coming Father’s Day. It’s the 18th of June for those that aren’t quite sure when they should be celebrating your lovely Dad, after all every day is a celebration if they’re particularly awesome! 🙂


Gone Fishing Blog


First up, who’s Dad doesn’t love some new socks???? If your dad is anything like mine, they can be particularly difficult to buy for, but always have the need for some new socks. If he sees himself as quite the fisherman then we’re sure he’ll wear these guys with pride.


Fish socks by DOIYAvailable in 3 colours Navy, Burgundy and Black


I caught you a delicious bass! If he’s a movie buff then he might recognise this from the awesome Napoleon Dynamite. Or it will remind him of the rather kitsch plastic dancing fish wall plaque.

A Smooth Sea Never Made a Skilful Sailor by Maria Rikteryte. Maybe your Dad was a sailor in his time and will appreciate this positive quote.

Celebrate Father’s Day with a special Bash full of his favourite fishy treats. This bunting by East End Press would be the perfect back drop for a party.

These images really don’t do these beautiful prints justice. A labour intensive process, all printed here in Edinburgh. Investments for the future.


Iceberg by Catherine Hiley


Who could resist this cute little goldfish? This little guy would be a great reminder of all the little ‘Goldies’ you’ve had over the years.  Enamel Pins are still having their moment and this Woah There Pickle pin would be the perfect little guy for your lapel.

Embroidery is having its moment and we couldn’t think of a more enjoyable afternoon.

This cute Puffin by Hawthorn Handmade is definitely a favourite.
