The Great British Postcard - Pack of 11 Designs

For over 150 years, Britain has cherished the postcard in all its many forms. From saucy seaside scenes to architectural icons, the postcard is the staple souvenir of any Brit’s holiday.

With that in mind, we thought what better way to express public opinion and flaunt the nation’s creative talent than through the wonderful medium of a postcard. Up and down the UK, we invited creatives to submit their artistic interpretation of Britain in 2017 for the chance to win £5,000. We received hundreds of entries with topics ranging from social and political issues to tea and scones, and of course, the weather!

All entries were showcased on 25 September 2017 at a star-studded event featuring punk legend John Lydon (Sex Pistols, PiL) and The Big Issue’s founder Lord John Bird.

This limited edition pack contains the very best entries for you to share with your nearest and dearest or cherish all to yourself.

All profits generated from the sale of this pack go to The Big Issue Foundation to help people who are homeless take control of their lives and earn a legitimate income.


Saxoprint initiated The Great British Postcard Competition as an opportunity to highlight creative talent in the UK including young artists and designers, as well as those on the fringes of society. Using the humble postcard as a platform to highlight design talent, and shine a light on the experiences that inspire people to create a design. By joining forces with The Big Issue, University of Arts London, and cultural icons like John Lydon and John Bird, illustrated how a collaboration between business, non-profit and the worlds of art and design can create positive outcomes for society.
