Typography Gifts Ensure Your Home Stays Stylish … Even With Kids.
Typography gifts aren’t just for grown ups you know.
If you’re eager to ensure your new bundle of joy doesn’t compromise your design style. Even keen to get an early start introducing your little one to some stylish design; today’s feature is for you.
Meet ‘The Jam Tart’, a forward-thinking children’s brand bringing typography to the nursery.
Understanding that a keen eye for design doesn’t disappear when kids arrive, graphic designer and new Mum, Emma Jameson launched The Jam Tart along with her best friend and fellow designer, Tom Moore.
Speaking of The Jam Tart’s Origins Emma said:
“We want to create colourful, engaging spaces for children to play, grow and thrive in. I wanted to create something that would engage my daughter, Orla and help to provide a sensory link throughout our family spaces. We like to think that our designs would feel equally at home in a nursery, living room or family snug.”
Typography Gifts for Design Conscious Buyers
The Jam Tart is a design-led company with a passion for typographical details. Their collection includes a range of typography gifts from Flash Cards and Colouring Books to Alphabet Prints and Name Prints. Each design features animal letters that burst with character and charm.
Let’s take a closer look at a few items from the range.
The Jam Tart’s Animal Flash Cards feature 26 double-sided flash cards with a durable finish and rounded corners, making them perfect for little hands. The packs are available in 2 versions; choose from coloured or black and white. The black and white Flash Cards provide high-contrast alphabet letters, which are particularly good for engaging children from a young age. Each of the Flash Card Sets come in a Kraft box, perfect for gifting.
The bright and bold Initial Print sees one of The Jam Tart’s animal characters illustrating a child’s name. A fun personalised gift, ideal for type fans young and old. Buyers can choose between two alphabets and four colour ways to create their perfect print.
The Initial Print shown here (and the Name Print below) can be displayed easily with the use of a magnetic frame. Designed by THABTO, the frame is a simple way to hang The Jam Tart’s prints. Each frame uses hidden magnets that cleverly hold your print in place; ensuring it stays in tip top condition.
The sweet Alphabet Print features stylised animal designs; making each letter from A for Alligator to Z for Zebra. Ideal for a bedroom or play room, little ones will love exploring the colourful design to find each animal character “hidden” in the picture.
Name Prints allow you to create a custom, design-led artwork using The Jam Tart’s fun animal letters. Perfect for adding colour to a child’s bedroom or nursery. The Name Print also makes a stylish new baby gift or Christening / Baptism present.
The Animal Alphabet Colouring Book features 26 animal characters waiting to be coloured. Kids will be entertained for hours as they spot the “hidden” creatures and colour in.
