Pretty Postal Kitchen Table Mail


It's that time again... time for a new Pretty Postal mail swap. This time round, we're challenging our fellow mail lovers to exchange thoughtful mail based around the theme of food and memory. It's the perfect time of year to get cozy and create some beautiful mail. And if you've been here long, you know I think blank envelopes and cards are a wonderful canvas for creativity!

This particular swap is only open to previous Pretty Postal swappers... so if you've completed one of our previous swaps, we do hope you'll sign up for this one too. Sign-ups are open until Friday, November 22nd. You can find all the details over on the Pretty Postal site.

Pretty Postal Monochromatic Mail Swap


It's been a long, grey winter and I don't know about you, but I could use a boost of spirit lifting colour. Luckily, it's the perfect time for another Pretty Postal mail swap ...

The Monochromatic Mail Swap invites you to create pretty mail using a single colour family of your choice. I'm feeling rather partial towards pinks and reds, but sunny yellows or even classic black and white would be fun too.

Pretty Postal swaps connect you with 2 to 4 other creatives across the country and around the world to exchange well-crafted mail on a chosen theme. Since 2016, we've brightened mailboxes with nearly 2000 pieces of mail!

Basil & Ford - Screenprinted Wit


I have been smitten with Basil & Ford's lucky dip screenprints for quite some time.


What do you get when you combine vintage illustrations with a bit of screenprinted English wit?

These one of a kind prints which are such a clever combination of old and new. They're really striking, aren't they?


I had the hardest time picking just a handful to share, so do pop over to their website to ogle them all!

Basil & Ford are Lucy and Matt, a married pair of British designers. You can also follow Basil & Ford on Instagram. I do!
