Play Time cards by Sean Sims
We showed you the Sean Sims limited edition alphabet print last year. Now the letters are available individually, as the Play Time card range.
Executed in an early 70s-style, each card is based around a different letter: from the brightly patterned 'K' for 'Kettle' to the monster towering over the metropolis for 'M', or the old-fashioned gent clutching an umbrella for 'U'.
Ideal as birthday cards for kids or for adults who haven't quite grown-up yet, the cards cost £2 each.

Charlatans by Darling Clementine for nineteenseventythree
Charlatans is a new range of cards from two of our favourites, Darling Clementine designing for nineteenseventythree.
The card range includes 16 new designs that are packed full of retro charm. Each card focuses on a different dubious character, that you could imagine seeing loitering around in prohibition-era America. Pictured is the diva, while there is also the likes of the poet, the cabaret girl, the gypsy and the sailor. There's even a card called Minelli. The illustrations enhance the 1920s/30s feel of the characters.
Perfect for the loveable rogues in your life, each card costs £2.

Paul Thurlby alphabet prints now available as cards
Cast your mind back towards the end of last year and you may remember Paul Thurlby's great alphabet prints. If you liked those, you'll be pleased to learn they've become even more accessible as they've been made into greetings cards.
As a quick recap, each letter of the alphabet has its own devoted illustration, all depicted in a great retro style. And the price means that for just over £50 you could purchase an entire alphabet – a great idea for a kids room.
Each card costs £2. As it says here, awesome!

Sanna Annukka at nineteenseventythree
We've featured many of the designs of Sanna Annukka previously on this site, both her products for Marimekko and things she's put out under her own name. Here's a new, affordable way to buy her work with the nineteenseventythree range.
Greetings cards are the first products from the range to be released but it'll eventually include wrapping paper and postcards too. As evident from the cards shown, the designs all display Annukka's trade mark retro folk style, using the bird motifs we know so well. The cards are all made from 100% recycled consumer waste and use gold foil to add an extra bit of glitz to the otherwise restrained colour palette of the designs.
The cards cost £2 each.
