Afternoon all, sorry for the lack of posts on the blog of late. Lots of stuff been going on: University / Car / House / Hospital - not neccessarily in that order! And no I haven't sold the house and car to study medicine at Uni! Now that would be a mid-life crisis!
Anyway, enough waffle, here's the main reason for this post... a new range! The "You without Me" print range is a slight departure from me ramming Film & TV shows down your throat (okay, they're still in there but not so obvious!). It's a print to celebrate someone who you just can't do without and shows the one you love, a friend for life or maybe a work buddy that there's a special bond between you. So what better way to say it than with words!
There's Morecambe Without Wise, Holmes Without Watson and Fred Without Ginger to choose from, but if these iconic double acts aren't your bag, you can always personalise it. Maybe you're more Bert without Ernie, Gin without Tonic, Wallace without Grommit, Bacon without Eggs.... basically whatever floats you and yours boat! That reminds me, I better start doing one for Mrs Tyaprint!

All the usual suspects are there for a new year - 18th, 21st, 30th, 40th, and 50th years for all those milestone birthdays. Everything has moved on a year, so if you're looking for a 1973 41st birthday present, they're still available.
So if 1964 is the year for you, then Top of the Pops made its poptastic debut and a spoonful of sugar helped the medicine go down in Mary Poppins!
Or if you know someone who was born in the year that saw Ronnie Barker holed up in HM Slade in Porridge and (my personal favourite) - the camp fire bean scene from the movie Blazzing Saddles, then 1974's your year.
1984 was the year we first saw the satirical rubber puppets of Spitting Image on the box and too many to mention blockbusters at the movies - Ghostbusters, Terminator, Gremlins, Beverley Hills Cop!
If you were born in 1993, then the highlights were Vic & Bob's Shooting Stars and the CGI fest of dinosaurs marauding their way across the screen in Jurassic Park!
And finally if the young pup was born 1996, it saw Silent Witness make forensic patholgy look cool on the telly whilst a plethora of spotty dogs ran amuck in 101 Dalmatians!
You can view all of the new Decage prints here.
That's it for now - Happy New Year!
