Here at Doxzoo, we love showcasing customer stories.
So when we started printing interesting vintage ads for The Classic Print Shop, we had to strike up a conversation with the owner, Anna Gover.
Read on to find out more about her venture…
What is The Classic Print Shop? What inspired it?
The Classic Print Shop was inspired by the beautiful and artistic advertisements of the past. Talented and brilliant designers and artists created some truly beautiful images, at a time when print had real power.
Who are the team behind it?
The idea for The Classic Print shop was dreamed up by Anna Gover who comes from a graphics / photo restoration and business background. Since starting we have built up a bit of team which is made up of the odd Graphic designer, publisher and basically anyone we can get our hands on to help us out!
What are your favourite prints and ads? Which are the most popular?
Our favourites, and the most popular, are the old cigarette ads. It’s amazing to think that once they were used to illustrate good health – the Kensitas one is a brilliant example.
Our fruit label print – mainly from the sunshine states of America – are bold, gorgeous and often hilarious. Who doesn’t want “Gay Cock” or “Buxom Melons”?
What next for The Classic Print Shop?
We’re branching out into graphic prints too – with some apposite sayings. We love “This Kitchen Is For Dancing”.
We’re going to have some gorgeous Christmas cards and coasters too – look out for them!
