Started your Christmas shopping? You might want to include these 1950s Honey, It’s Christmas! cards by Pennychoo on your list. Especially if you can’t visit as many people this year.
That’s the thing this year. Cards haven’t been as much of a big deal in previous years as we have all drifted towards a digital life. But with the personal touch now more important, more of us (myself included) are looking at handmade cards to get the message across.
The only problem is that you need to pick them up at a reasonable time. After all, they need writing and posting, which is never a quick job. So as we sit on in the middle of November, it might be the right time to pick up cards that are both retro and festive, leaving you time to write and post.
Not just retro, this new range from Pennychoo is very much inspired by the 1950s. In fact, 1950s Americana with a touch of kitsch. The follow-up to an earlier Honey I’m Home! card range, the new Honey, It’s Christmas! cards offer similar imagery mixed in with some traditional festive words and symbols.
You can see all the range by browsing this very page, with everything from cocktail bars to radiograms featured. There’s even a nod to George Nelson in there somewhere too.
All the cards are printed on what’s described as a’ warm white, textured board’ for a vintage feel and supplied with a berry red envelope. All the 12 cards available online now, priced at £2.50 each. Alternatively, all 12 cards are £25, which saves you a fiver.
