Xtra Large

On the noticeboard above my desk, at work, I have a small 'Keep Calm & Carry On' postcard. I look at it on a daily basis and take ten deep breaths. Then there are some days, when I just eat cupcakes...

The original poster was issued in 1939 by the British government to help raise the moral of the public. Little did they know, it would be doing just the same job decades later, as well as becoming a popular phrase and icon. Printed on everything from mugs to baby bibs, and now you can have them emblazoned on the wall of your bedroom, living room or perhaps most needed, your office.

This vinyl wall decal is approximately 40 inches tall by 22 inches wide and is available from DecalHappy's etsy store. Available in a range of colours, there is one for every office.


  1. My son-in-law is British, and we love that saying. He & my daughter Mary live in Switzerland, where he is doing post-doc stuff.
    I love your blogs.

  2. Nice poster, I can imagine it in 1939 Britain.
    The dining room poster is interesting, I mlike it.

  3. Some days those words simply aren't enough, but they sure won't hurt.
