Christmas Cards....

To some this may be a bit early for a posts about christmas cards, however, in the greetings card industry we start thinking about it late January / early February. We have just received The running sheets of two of our ranges, Snow Folk from the girls at Darling Clementine  and Sukie's Christmas range. The colours and illustrations are really nice, even in May.

New Darling Clementine!!!

Here at 1973 we have just received new artwork from the girls at Darling Clementine. 'The Uniforms' have a very different feel to their previous range 'The Claudettes' however, they are equally as charming.

The girls never disappoint with their very distinctive designs. The full range will be posted very soon. Have a look at the girls website HERE

It's Nice That

We were very pleased to see that our Sanna Annukka range got a write up on design blog It's Nice That. It's one of our favourite blogs so there is a bit of mutual appreciation going on, which is nice. How many times can I say nice? NICE

1973 mascot.

For the last couple of months we have had a part-time office hound (the rest of the time he his being spoilt rotten by Danny) that frequents us. Jet the 18-month-old Whippet is now a firm member of the team who is ridiculously funny and very silly indeed.

Daily Express Clipping.

We are very pleased to have had a very sweet write up in the Daily Express today (May 13th). Claire Brayford who has the Style Secrets section claimed she had ‘fallen in love’ with 1973. Good stuff!
