Letterpressed Bollocks Notecards


Exclusive to Holly & Co!

These beautiful letterpress notecards by Marby & Elm were the first product Holly spotted when stepping into their shop on Exmouth Market. The exquisite traditional letterpress craft is contradicted by the cheeky ‘bollocks’ message nestled in the banner.

Reminding Holly of the type of notecards genteel ladies used to send to each other…. but with a brilliant dose of swearing, she stocked up and sends them off to friends who need a cheeky pick me up!

A note from Holly…

“I chose this product for the book as there’s so much ‘bollocks’ spoken in business, don’t listen to it…. Just stick to your instincts and never listen to the acronyms. Usually those people are feeling insecure so need to hide behind a fancy business term!”

This product features in my book, Do What You Love, Love What You Do

Every micro chapter within the book features a unique small business product which creatively captures the key takeaway. I truly believe in the power of small business and wanted to bring the pages of my book to life in a way never done before, and allow you to share in that magic too. Because, believe me, when you do what you love, you’ll want to wear it, have it in your home and shout it from the rooftops too!
