On the great bus ride of life what were your favourite stops?
Having already bought two of our Personalised Destination Prints, one of our customers asked us to create something a bit different for her parents 25th wedding anniversary in a landscape format. This is what we designed for her.
These fabulous bespoke reproduction bus blind prints are totally unique to you. Tell the story of your life though your own destinations spread over 4 lines. List your names, favourite holidays, places with special meaning, children's names, private jokes, where you fell in love, where you have lived - anything is possible. A fantastic piece of statement art and an amazing conversation starter.
Each print is individually created and emailed as a proof to you for your approval before printing. A giclee print is then created on archival enhanced matte paper and custom framed in a black wooden frame, teamed with black mount board, by local framers using FSC approved wood. This will add 5-10 days to the estimated delivery and we will require your approval before printing.
Or if you'd prefer, you can have it shipped to you unframed in a protective cardboard tube!
A unique gift for loved ones, parents, grandparents and those big wedding anniversaries too!
Dimensions: 26x51cm approx. as a framed print, or 21x47cm approx. as an unframed print.
Please note, unframed prints will be printed with a white border around them. This allows for easier and cleaner handling when unwrapping and when framing, which we highly recommend to preserve the quality of your print.
A quick history lesson!
AEC Limited, the company that made the iconic Routemaster buses, was born in Walthamstow - just like me! Before WWI, Frank Pick, the Chairman of London Underground, commissioned Edward Johnston to create a typeface that could be legibly read by all at some distance, to be used on the front of trains and throughout the underground. When London Transport was created, merging all buses, tubes and trains the Johnston font became synonymous with London.
So the original British designers of the bus blind were Pick and Johnston, nearly a century ago! The first folk to bring us personalised bus blinds were the utterly fabulous Print Dolls in Australia and we are proud (actually pleased as punch) to be the only ones to have their blessing to offer the same here in the UK. We hold true to their high standards.
