Fairground Card for Mother

Our last touch of vintage glamour comes courtesy of the great British seaside holiday.

“Take a trip to the end of the pier where a Bryl-creemed young buck is getting his first bit of ink. The seagulls screech over the waves outside while inside, the tattooist’s needle hums through a fog of Woodbine smoke and steamy tea.”

Inspired by Graham Greene’s ‘Brighton Rock’  the ‘Fairground’ card collection gives a soft, feminine treatment to old school 1950’s tattoos.

A perfect way to make Mum smile on Mother’s Day this card has rock ‘n’ roll style and glamour without the lasting damage of a real tattoo!

All of the cards featured are printed on a high quality 350gsm heavyweight board that is FSC certified and matched with a crisp envelope.

Another bonus for shopping with Pennychoo? A FREE postcard with every purchase. Keep it as a mini work of art for your good self or send it to you favourite retro design fan.
