GETTING PERSONAL WITH PRINTS

Getting Personal With Prints is a Nottingham based organisation who specialise in the different and unique. We were established earlier this year, and inspired by a one off frame that we put together depicting a rare Lego Joker mini figure, which was a gift for a friend. The frame was posted on Facebook and just took off, and we started producing a range of themed and personalised frames from then on. The Joker has remained our icon and inspiration and joins us at all our events, as well as being the face of our enterprise.

Our speciality and best selling products are our bespoke mini figure frames, many of which we personalise for specific events or to individual customer requirements. Our ranges cover Marvel, DC, Disney and Star Wars along with well known celebrities, sports teams and TV programmes - we can even turn you and your friends into mini figures!! We have been successfully selling these at a range of craft fair events and comic conventions in the East Midlands, as well as in our concession at The Yards outlet in Kettering, Northants and via our Facebook page, where our following continues to grow!! Our most recent fan, who received his own personalised frame, was the great Sugar Ray Leonard, who loved it so much, he whacked it on his Instagram account straight away!!

We thrive on being different, being unique, putting something out there that you won't see in any shop or on any high street. Our presence at local craft fair events has been felt massively, with our off the wall displays, large iconic joker figure and our co-founder, who is a thick set guy with a beard and a load of tattoos - not the average craft fair type!! We love that we cause a bit of a stir, and that we make people look again!!

We look forward to putting a smile on your face when we see you on the 29th April at the Birmingham Comic Convention.
