THE JAFFAS

Some years ago I mentioned the Jaffa posters here on this blog; soda advertisements from the late fifties and early sixties that made the billboards again in a retro campaign a few years back. I've always wanted these posters and for some reason I kept on wondering how to get them until it last summer struck me - what the hell is wrong with me? Few things are ever further than a google away!
(Yes, really, sometime I am so old school I actually forget about the internet and think I have to find stuff in real life.)

A few minutes later two of the Jaffas where on their way home to me.

The posters are made by Erik Bruun, one of my favorite Finnish graphic designers (I really love this one too for example :). They can be ordered from his shop.

I love all those Jaffa posters too! A couple of years ago I also wondered how I could get my hands on them. It didn't take long after that they started to sell them in bookstores. I had to buy one. So the one with the bottles can be found on our kitchen wall too. :)

I LOVE those posters, I think you can actually get them in Stockmanns but whenever I am there (live in London so only in Helsinki occasionally) they are sold out of the Jaffa ones, which I particularly want. So happy to learn you can get them online, I am asking for them for my birthday.

Brilliant designs, I have seen them before but it is great to see them full sized and framed. They look great :)

SOS!

I'm trying desperately to make these mine. Sadly, I'm struggling with Finnish. I think Google translate is telling me that these prints might currently be out of stock. I've tried contact the seller, but I haven't heard back. Finnish speaking friends, are these in or out of stock?

In nautical need,
Michelle

Michelle : they are saying they will be closed from Feb 11-25! So they will probably answer you after that I hope? The posters seem to be in stock otherwise :)

Keeping my fingers crossed until the 25th will challenging, but I must try!
