Check out this amazing Sheffield stuff!


Recommended Posts

Those of you here that know me will know that last year was tough as lockdown hit and my usual work dried up. So I essentially needed to change my business to try and survive. 😮

After a few tough months I decided to do something that I could be passionate about and throw myself into, so I have taken my hobby stuff based around Sheffield and have tried to form it into a business. Many of you might have seen my Sheffield Guide videos in the past... but lockdown meant I had to shield and couldn't get out to film stuff so I decided to create an online platform called The Sheffield Guide for Sheffield-type stuff that I could add various content to as-and-when. To help fund it and hopefully make some money to pay some bills I also added a Sheffield Shop, to sell high-quality stuff I create that celebrates Sheffield, it's culture and history. It was also an outlet for some of my art (which was a big thing as I'd never really shown that off anywhere).

So, I wanted to just showcase some of my stuff to you in the hopes you see something you like, or something that would make a great gift for someone you know. The Sheffield Guide is quickly getting known as one of the best go-to places for great Sheffield Gifts and for high-quality original locally-themed stuff.

First off, here is a small selection of some of my Sheffield Art and prints:

👉 See the full collection here: https://www.sheffieldguide.blog/product-category/art/ 

Most of the art is available as both standalone prints or framed prints and available in A4, A3 and A2 sizing. These aren't your home inkjet prints either; they are incredible quality prints (to museum standard).

I also do a range of high-quality Sheffield Clothing, many of which features my art or other locally-themed designs on T-Shirts, Hoodies, Sweatshirts and more:

Early on I decided to try and do things the right way from the start. Everything is as high-quality as possible, and where possible I source all my products and services from within the Sheffield City Region to keep things in the local economy. I also decided it all has to be sustainable, ethical and organic (i.e. all my T-Shirts are vegan-friendly 100% organic cotton and PETA/GOTS certified, etc). All items are also made-to-order, so there's no wastage from holding large amounts of stock (a huge problem in the "fast fashion" industry).

Also, I have a large range of Sheffield-themed accessories, from Face Masks through to Mugs and Bags and Hats and more!

One of the most popular collections have been the Legendary Sheffield Pubs & Clubs collection, which features many of your favourite gone-but-not-forgotten venues (again most are available as T-Shirts, Hoodies, Mugs and more) — a great hit of nostalgia and always a talking point when worn!

And I've even had a hand in creating a new Sheffield-based and themed Fashion Brand — utilising the same local focus, morals, quality and ethics — called [SHF]:

Things have gone amazingly so far — the site and collection had a lot of attention over Christmas and even got featured in a book (The Little Book of Sheffield) which focussed on all the brilliant Sheffield Independents! A number of local celebrities, including members of at least three of the very top Sheffield bands have bought some items from me, and reviews have all been great (I have a policy of total satisfaction and give people the kind of service they deserve and should get from every company but sadly don't).

"I have just received my ‘Mardy Bum’ T.shirt but also have the ‘Limit’ one too, brilliant T.Shirts, fantastic quality and service second to none, highly recommend 10/10." - Vicky

"I ordered a personalised Tee-shirt which arrived as described and on time. The size of the shirt is generous. Feels really good to support local independent businesses."- Andy

"Ordered a short sleeve t shirt for my husband which has just arrived. It’s true to size and great quality. Will be ordering more items - thank you!" - Sue

(You can see more reviews at FacebookTrustpilot, on the product pages on the website and all the other usual places)

Of course Christmas was brilliant, but things have slowed down a lot in recent weeks so I thought I would shout about it a little more here for those who didn't know in the hope of a little support in terms of perhaps you seeing something you'd like to buy or even just helping to spread the word for more people to find out about these amazing Sheffield-themed items to celebrate our culture and heritage. Essentially I'm trying to make this my full-time job and a viable small business so I really appreciate any help. 

 

👉 More designs and items are being added all the time too! Take a look at the Sheffield Shop here:

https://www.sheffieldguide.blog/shop/ 

Payment is secure, you can pay via PayPal if you wish and there's free standard delivery on qualifying orders over £45!

 

I'm also in the process of setting up a curated set of products on Etsy as a lot of people requested that, so if you prefer to shop there, the link is: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/SheffieldGuide (be aware though that Etsy's fees are high, so some items are a little more expensive on there! )

 

Sorry for the long post! Thanks in advance for any support you can give. I truly appreciate every purchase, mention or just good vibes. 🙌

Thank you! 🙌

I can certainly ship to the states (have a good few ex-pat customers over there already!) and indeed worldwide!

Shipping cost depends on destination and the size/weight of the total order... if you add your items to the basket and enter the destination address when prompted the website will calculate the shipping for you. 👍

Just a suggestion, there are 14 Sheffield’s in the USA, why don’t you investigate this avenue?
 

Good luck for the future.

Very nice stuff but it sent me dizzy trying to look at all those flashing and changing images and I had to leave it before I had looked properly.

Thanks for the idea! I've researched some of the other Sheffield's in the past but never thought of doing anything like that with all this stuff.
