Entering this website is like floating into a colourful sea of brilliant and beautiful paper products.
I always keep a little stash of delightful stationery in my drawer and now my daughter’s caught the bug and has her own stash (well, more like mountain). I do always make sure that any paper products we purchase are made from recycled material. That’s what got me ultra-excited about the UK-based Nineteen Seventy Three (1973) website as almost all their products are made from 100 per cent recycled board, uncoated board or post consumer waste.
1973 boasts an astonishing amount of sublime paper things for the little people in our lives: such as groovy metallic birthday cards and party invites; recycled wrapping paper awash with retro prints of matroushka dolls, robots and funky flowers; to-die-for vintage inspired screen prints for walls of happy lions and elephants; and even colour-in wallpaper for the brave.
Prices and shipping are incredibly well priced for such coveted goods: the cards and wrapping paper are £2, invitations are £4.99 and screen prints are £70. 1973 offers flat rate shipping of £8 to Australia so make a quick dash to scoop up your child’s favourites.
