Scots Sayings Calendar

Over the last couple of decades an increasing number of gifts and products have appeared that take the Scots language as a theme, from greeting cards to posters, and books to clothes and mugs. Now a Scots calendar had been produced by Edinburgh-based company Indy Prints. Established by graphic designer and illustrator Stewart Bremner, the company produces locally made prints with a Scottish theme.

The Scots language has a long and colourful history whose origins stretches back well over a thousand years. Part of its colour isn't just the glorious words, but also the unique sayings. Indy Prints has collected and illustrated twelve of our favourite sayings, so that we can all have a bit of Scots colour on our walls! The Scots Calendar contains ranges from old favourites, such as We’re aw Jock Tamson’s Bairns, and Mony a mickle maks a muckle, to more modern expressions such as Haud yer wheesht, or Yer bum’s oot the windae.

You can purchase your 12 page, full colour Scots Calendar from Indy Prints at the price of £9. Just follow this link to find out more:
