New range of Windsor gifts launched during lockdown

Windsor Landmarks A2 Prints

Introducing our new Windsor Landmarks Greetings Cards, Postcards, and Black & White Prints, the latest products in our stylish Silhouette Range. We were aiming to stock these at Huttons gift shop in Windsor and have also been in talks with the merchandising team at Windsor Castle itself. Without knowing how long the current situation will last, and with a need to carry on, we’ve decided to launch them in the meantime. 

Additionally, we are now offering a new service where you can write your greeting card remotely, and we’ll insert the message for you. Read more here…

Range of Lazystuff gifts all together

Updated Saturday 6 June 2020

Stock levels good

We have limited supply of framed prints and mugs, as these require us to visit local courier firms. We are still able to deliver all unframed prints, greeting cards, postcards and coasters, which are sent via Royal Mail.

Buy British – where we source items

All of our products are designed and manufactured by people living in the UK. This includes packaging, frames, coasters etc. You can help support a range of small businesses by purchasing our products. This helps our economy and hopefully our products will cheer you up. However, tracing the source of some raw materials is quite hard. The coaster wood and ink are believed to originate from the US. Some A2 frames are from Slovakia, others from China. Cards are made in Belfast from English suppliers, who stock from European paper mills. Cello bags are made in England. Poster inks are from and English supplier, and poster coated paper is from Europe.

New St.Albans Pub Crawl Print on Sale in Cositas

Cositas and Pub Crawl Poster

We’re exceptionally pleased to present our new pub crawl print featuring some of the historic local pubs in St Albans. It’s a fascinating city with a rich history and a stunning cathedral. We think the rich purple on the print provides the perfect ecclesiastical feel.

Personally I chose this area as I still have family  living here. Infact we’ve traced our family history back nearly 400 years – some of my long lost relatives can be found in the churchyard opposite the King Harry pub at the start of the route. 

This pub crawl has intriguing buildings on it. Ye Olde Fighting Cocks is in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the UK’s oldest pub. The Farriers Arms was once the most popular haunt of Camra when their headquarters were based nearby.

If you’ve got any stories or memories we’d love to hear them. You can comment on this post,  below or share with us on Facebook and Twitter.

Please support our local High Street shops by popping in to Cositas to purchase a print and take a look around. We’ll have a picture of the poster in the shop soon!

Addicted to tea, coffee and cake!

Tea Coffee and Cake posters

It’s important to keep trying new ideas. Some of them are commercially successful and other’s unfortunately not so much! However, rather than sit on new ideas we like to launch them as soon as we can. It’s the best way to get feedback, and also to simply move on to the next new idea.

Here’s our new range of tea, coffee & cake inspired prints. We think they’re very simple and graphic and would look great in the kitchen next to a gleaming new coffee machine for example.

The posters use the classic typeface, Cooper Black. A font that’s wonderfully chunky and rounded.
