The johnson banks post office, 2007

empty_pig

This year’s johnson banks post office at the V&A fete featured specially produced airmail letters, our special twist on those self-sealing aerogramme letters you’d send to granny in Australia when you were a kid.

We designed eight in total, which folded down from die-cut shapes into square letters.

The star of the show was probably the pig (the flying variety)…

…with the bat, balloon and rocket as close runners-up.

These are the rest of the set. Nice Pterodactyl.

The letters come kiss-cut in A3 sheets.

This is how the stand looked for the event, plus a few shots of the stall in action.

We’ll be selling them on our shop pretty soon, but if you can’t wait, email shop@johnsonbanks.co.uk and we can sort something out for you. They come in a sturdy A3 envelope with a folding guide and special stickers. We haven’t quite fixed the price yet, but a set of eight will be less than ten pounds, we hope.
