We’ll be celebrating St George’s Day this year at The Fox & Hounds in Coxbench, Little Eaton.

We’ve been given the chance to exhibit our wall prints, including our limited edition St George’s bird print. You will also be able to see the launch of one of our new collections, the Heritage Range. You can buy any of our prints on the night, so come and join us for some good food and drink, see you there! from 6.30pm onwards!


We are officially in National Stationery Week, and to celebrate we’re giving all our customers 30% OFF all notebooks on our website. National Stationery Week is dedicated to encouraging people to use their pen and notebooks to write more, something that many of us could do a lot more.

At SBO we don’t want to just encourage writing but drawing too, so grab yourself one of our birdy themed notebooks and get writing, doodling, scribbling, note making or whatever you want to do! All you have to do is type the discount code NSW30 at the checkout, offer ends sunday 6th April.

In February we ran a competition over on Facebook to coincide with RSPB’s Garden Birdwatch.

We asked for you to send in your own photos of birds you’ve seen in your back garden and we were stunned at how great your photos were! We had a few contenders for the winning spot, but in the end we chose Emma Seward’s photo of a Great Tit, hiding away from the camera. Well done to Emma, who has chosen our A4 Classic Goldfinch print as her prize, we hope you enjoy it!
