We have another new and exciting license to add to our collection at Star Editions Ltd.
We have recently started working with the NMRN, and have a beautiful collection of vintage posters from their archives available to print on all of our usual gift products. The majority of the posters are wartime posters, from the first and second World War and encourage support and for people to be cautious about telling friends and family what they know.
The collection is wonderful, and with the WW1 centenary being this year, it is selling really well already. Click here to see our full range of NMRN wholesale gifts.

Let us go forward together- Winston Churchill WW2 Poster
70 years ago today, British, US and Canadian soldiers stepped bravely onto the beaches of Normandy, Northern France. This was the first stage of ‘Operation Overlord’, the invasion of Nazi occupied Europe, and the start of what was the eventual end of the harrowing Second World War.
Brave soldiers some even younger than 18, as it was common for boys to lie about their age as they wanted to support their fathers, brothers, uncles and cousins and fight for their country, got out of boats and stepped foot onto the beaches. Many knew they may never see home again, but had no choice but to be brave and carry on. As many as 4,413 allied troops died on the day of the invasion. Within 11 months of D-Day, Nazi Germany was defeated.
Today around 650 remaining British veterans, now in their late 80’s and 90’s visit Normandy to remember and take part in the remembrance ceremony.
You may have seen our previous posts about our WW1 posters, but in this collection of Imperial War Museum images we have plenty of WW2 posters, encouraging people to support the war effort. These prints and gift products are selling fantastically well, especially with this year being the centenary of the beginning of the First World War. Have a look through the whole range and stock your shop with these wonderful gifts.
