New to our shop: a range of 21 great greetings cards (yours to win!)

By john joyce on 25 Mar 2011

Our Licensing Manager has been, over the last year, trawling through our vast and eclectic image collection to produce a fresh and varied range of greeting card images to be licensed and distributed through a partnership with Camden Graphics which is part of the UK Greetings family of companies.

The licensing deal will generate income for the Museum through royalties paid on the sale of each card.

This partnership will enable the Museum’s brand and collections to reach audiences all over the country, as the cards will be on sale in around 1,000 shops nationwide by the end of the year (and on sale in our Museum Shops and online from April 1st).

There are 21 cards in the collection, including textiles, ceramics, toys and a beautiful collection of nine black and white photographs by Henry Grant.

These images have been chosen to reflect the diversity of the Museum’s collections and we are now working on designs for Father’s Day and Christmas 2012.

Here is a small sample of four designs (front and back) from the collection:

For your chance to win a complete set of all 21 cards (worth over £50) post a comment below or tweet us with suggestions of a key Londoner from history you would send one of these cards to and why and the best suggestion as judged by our Retail Team will win!

    I will send a card to Charles Chaplin (born 1889) – he lived in his childhood in Lambeth, which is my current borough. I would send the Teddy bear card, as it makes me think of Charles Chaplin, the posture, the melancholy, there’s something really in this postcard that touches me.

    Sir Robert ‘Bobby’ Peel would be a great edition to the set.

    I am looking forward to our next visit to the museum.

    I would send the teapot card to Samuel Pepys ….

    In June 28th 1667 he wrote in his diary: ‘find my wife making of tea, a drink which Mr. Pelling, the Potticary, tells her is good for her …’

    Couldn’t agree more!
