Posted on 20th October 2009 by admin


To celebrate the launch of the new Alphabet Bags site we have added a few lovely new totes to the collection.

'Bag of Tricks', the perfect tote for your Halloween treats, and a great all round bag for budding magicians!

'The Bee's Knees', created using high resolution scans of wooden letterpress type impressions. The first of many letterpress style totes to come.

'Dance like no one's watching'. Hit the dance floor with this bold bag, throw some shapes, cut a rug, get down, boogie, and live your life to the fullest!

* The ability to create a customer account (if you wish)

* New product viewing methods, Grid view, List view and Window view (our favourite)

* Currency conversions for many international customers

We hope you like the new site! If you have any questions about the changes which we have made please feel free to get in touch. It's been a very busy few months here but we're really pleased to have the new site up and running.

A big thank you to everyone at Blubolt for putting up with us and for their hard work in getting the new site online!

You might have noticed the new 'tea towels' and 'mugs' categories here at Keep Calm Gallery. We have recently merged our old sister site The Manicule with Keep Calm Gallery, so from now on you'll be able to browse and purchase all of our prints, cards, tea towels and mugs in one place. To coincide with the new website launch we have introduced many new lovely printed cotton tea towels to our range. To view the complete line of tea towels click here.


And finally we're pleased to announce the arrival of several new postcard designs! There are four new designs from the two of us, as well ad a bunch of new colours of the 'Keep Calm and Carry On' cards. With the new designs come new multi packs, for those who prefer a real mix and match. To view the complete range of postcards click here. 

That's all for now, but we have plenty of new treats in the pipeline!
