Bappida To Honuman Tupi: You'll Love The Very Bong Humour Of These Notebooks
Tell Me More
If you like a dose of humour with your stationery, then we suggest you hit up Kolkata-based Nukkad Printer.
Nukkad started off in the year 2014, with bags full of brilliant, fresh ideas by directors Pawas Shah, Sanjay Joshi and Mayur Tibrewal. They call themselves Kolkata’s friendly neighbourhood printer – quirky, adaptive, creative and committed.
What’s unusual about Nukkad is that the prints showcase sentiments that are quintessentially Kolkata: Memorable icons of the city splashed in pink and yellow, a familiar song remixed with a bold font, an old superstition revived, turning favourite objects of the city into characters. They showcase what Kolkata celebrates over the canvas of a coffee mug, a tote bag, a mouse pad and more.
Need quirky business cards made? Check. Need personalised invitation cards? Check. Looking for unusual ID cards? Check. Funky notepads? Double check. It is indeed, a one stop for all your printing solutions.
We fell in love with these notebooks which poke some gentle fun at the Bongness of Bengalis. For instance, a clay pot full of roshogollas says “Aar Ekta Hobe Ki?” (“How about one more?”), a close-up of a guy’s torso with trademark golden chains and double chins says “Shona Baby” (referring to musician Bappida or Bappi Lahiri) and a monkey cap that says “Khoob Thanda”.
You can find these notebooks at Artsy Cafe (230/B, Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose Rd).
You can choose the prints suited to your personality each of which will add an element of spunk to the things you use every day.
You can visit their office and get your designs from their readymade collection (some customisations can be done free of cost) or just ask for some help from their team of designers to get a brand new design.
