  3. Free Printable Birthday Calendar – Modern design A4 size printable PDF & JPG

    September 5, 2017 by Faffy Tea

    Wow it’s been a while since we posted! Apologies – we’ve moved to Bristol recently and had a lot of things to do.

    Today Jodi was updating her calendar of birthdays that she has on the wall in the Faffy Tea office, and realised that it no longer suits the decor. So she designed a new one! And we’re sharing it with you all.

    Printable Birthday Calendar

    It’s a funky modern design, but is still mostly white in colour so it won’t use up too much precious ink. Enjoy!

  4. Announcement: We’re Moving! Saying goodbye to the seaside…

    August 1, 2017 by Faffy Tea

    bristol-suspension-bridge-1206993

    On the 19th of August, Faffy Tea will be upping sticks and moving from Bournemouth to our new location in Bristol!

    Of course this will make no difference to the day-to-day business, but we will be very sad to say goodbye to the seaside – and to our supporters and customers in Bournemouth and around Dorset.

    We might be a little slow at responding to enquiries over the weekend of the 19th-20th August but otherwise there will be no disruptions.

  6. Free Eurovision 2017 Scorecard – Quirky categories for rating the countries! Eurovision Song Contest Scoresheets

    May 12, 2017 by Faffy Tea

    Every year we create a Eurovision Scorecard for our own Eurovision party and share it with you lovely people! If you’re having a Eurovision Party too, why not download our free printable Scorecard for the 2017 show and rate the countries’ performances.

    We use five fun and easy categories:

    – Song “Catchiness” – can you sing along by the third chorus?
    – Entertainment Factor – did the performance grab you, or did you get bored halfway through?
    – Sets, Staging & Props – video, interactivity, pyrotechnics, musical instruments?
    – Hotness of Performers – does the singer catch your eye? What about the dancers?
    – The “Element of Surprise” – is there a costume reveal halfway through? Unexpected drum solo? Rap?

    Free Eurovision Scoresheet 2017

    The scorecard lists the countries, performers and songs in order – as confirmed at last night’s Eurovision Song Contest 2017 semi-final!

    The scorecard / scoresheet is available as a JPEG file or PDF file in A4 size, so you can easily print it out at home on regular printer paper. There are two colour options – purple (colourful!) and white (uses less ink!).

  10. Free Galentine’s Day Printable Postcards – Alternative Valentines for girl best friends!

    January 17, 2017 by Faffy Tea

    Have you watched the Parks and Recreation TV show? The main character Leslie Knope celebrates ‘Galentine’s Day’ instead of Valentine’s Day – spending the day appreciating her gal best friend Ann Perkins and showering her with love.

    We really like this alternative to Valentine’s Day idea! Not everyone has a partner, but most ladies have good female friends who would appreciate some love on February 14th.

    We have 8 free postcards / notes that you can print out and give to your best friends this Galentine’s Day! These include two of Lesley Knopes famous phrases “Ovaries before Brovaries” & “Uteruses before Duderuses”.

    Free Galentines Day

    There are two A4 size PDFs in the zip file, each with 4 postcard designs. Open each PDF file and print on to card or paper, then cut along the dotted lines.

  11. Quirky & Alternative Non-Traditional Christmas Cards

    December 12, 2016 by Faffy Tea

    Looking for Christmas cards that are a little *ahem* different this year?

    On Pinterest we’ve been searching for alternative Christmas Cards – the funny, rude, clever, sweary, geeky and unique! How about sending your friends a card with Shane McGowan on the front instead of Santa this year? We will be adding to the board up until Christmas so why not give us a follow? Some of these are of course not safe for work / kids / family.
