Nukkad Printer, a Kolkata-based team of designers and printers are churning out products with a dose of bong humour. If you like a dose of humour with your stationery, then we suggest you hit 'em up. 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.

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, AJC Bose Rd).
