Remember the “Keep Calm and Carry On” craze from several years ago?
The original “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster is from the era of World War I. The original design was created by the British government as a morale-boosting poster to be displayed around towns and in shop windows if the Germans invaded the country.
This is what it looked like:
Only a few were made, and because the Germans did not invade, the posters were never used. They were stuck away somewhere and forgotten.
Then years ago one of them was discovered in a used bookshop, and the bookshop owners decided it was a nice thought to “Keep Calm and Carry On,” so they reproduced the poster and started selling it. It sold like crazy & became a popular trend.
I remember seeing “Keep Calm” items for sale at Target, at TJ Maxx, and all over the web. Designers also changed the saying to fit every holiday and theme you can think of…me being one of them, hahaha. 😉
Back when the design was all the rage, I had fun making several versions of the saying & I offered them as prints on my blog. I of course had to make Halloween ones as well…and I’m offering them here in case others might enjoy them, too! 🙂
Each is a .jpg file sized at 3″ x 5″ to fit small frames (and so it doesn’t use up TOO much ink, ha).
Grab them here! 🙂 Free Mini Prints - Halloween Keep Calms
