Have a Big British Holiday with Big Jon

My anglophile tendencies have been in high gear this week as the U.S. has hosted Prince William and Kate Middleton, currently the reigning queen of side eye — but British stationery design is always so intriguing, and Big Jon is part of the reason why!

Check out their ultra-mod Cracking Jokes, Based off traditional U.K. Christmas crackers, those bursting backgrounds are really fun!


These Splendid Balls are just that — these bright, bold graphic ornaments have a definite Scandinavian vibe.


And Mirror Mirror Christmas, a pretty patterned collection, lives up to its website description and is indeed richer than a Russian oligarch’s Christmas pudding.


Big Jon is having a big ‘ol sale, it’s totes ridic in fact: 50% off of five cards or more with the code BIGJONSALE. Shipping to the US via The Royal Mail is £3.50 (about $5.50) per every four cards. The 50% off discount wipes that shipping charge out and still takes some more off the top, so it’s equivalent to free shipping + a little discount. 

These make great gifts, or you can stock up for next year — although the Royal Mail is pretty fast. Big Jon’s Portland contact told me that every time he’s sent something to her, she’s gotten it in 2-3 days. To be on the safe side however, allow 7-10 days for delivery. There’s a lot of everyday great design packed into Big Jon’s site as well — it’s definitely worth taking a look around!
