Decorations

Pretty Rock Designs make lovely decorations for special occasions like Christmas, or just to generally brighten the place up at low cost. Christmas can be a busy time of year so get your orders in asap so you can enjoy them as long as possible.

You’ll find Pretty Rock Designs tree/treehouse/lab/office decorations in our Pretty Rock Empire Cafepress shop.

These are some of the most popular, based on the design Marcasite Star:

  • 2.375″ x 3″ snowflake
  • Made out of aluminum
  • Image printed on one-side in full color with a glossy no peel finish

The Pretty Rock Empire shop also stocks a wide range of magnets to brighten up your refrigerator, your filing cabinet, or your personal robot. (Or indeed yourself, if you are a robot reading this. Greetings.)

Many designs are already available in the shop, but not all images in the Pretty Rock Designs portfolio have been applied to these products. If you see something in the portfolio you’d like to put on a decoration, drop us a line at prettyrockdesigns@gmail.com with a request and we’ll see what we can do.

Cards

Nothing says someone cares quite like a physical card in the mail, doubly so if it’s as beautiful as a Pretty Rock Designs card from Redbubble. If you’re planning to be that someone who cares you’ll need to give yourself the most time to receive, write and post your cards before the big day. Pretty Rock cards also make wonderful gifts on the day as gift tags with your own special message, or as a pack of blank cards for your friend to pass on to others.

Every single image in the Pretty Rock portfolio is available for purchase as a 10cm x 15cm postcard, 10cm x 15cm greeting card, or 12.5cm x 19cm greeting card. All cards are blank, and suitable for all occasions. Plastic sleeves are optional.

Tip: The Patterns and Designs collection is particularly festive. Check out Rainbow Snowflake (Plume Agate):

Fabulous Floaty Scarves

Pretty Rock Designs and Redbubble are pleased to present large square fabulous floaty scarves in amazing colours and patterns.

Here are the technical details:

  • Made from a light chiffon fabric
  • Full print front is visible all the way through
  • 100% Microfiber Polyester

Because of the nature of the fabric, the final effect is softer than the original artwork you’ll see on the screen, but Redbubble’s previews of the actual products are adjusted to give you the most realistic representation possible.

Here are just some examples from the whole Pretty Rock Designs scarf collection:

Rainbow Snowflake (Plume Agate)

To make the high standard of image requirements for such a large printed item, you’ll see that most Pretty Rock scarves are repeat patterns. Some more recent Pretty Rock images are offered as a single image with a white border. If you’d like to see how an image would look as a repeat design, drop us a line at prettyrockdesigns@gmail.com.

Duvet (or is it Doona?) Covers

Where I come from they’re called doona covers, but in other parts they’re duvet or continental quilt covers – wonderful coverings for snuggly bedding. A rose by any other name would still be as fantastic as a Duvet Cover from Pretty Rock Designs, brought to you by Redbubble.

The top is sturdy but softened polyester that does a wonderful job of reproducing and hanging on to colours, and the underside is an even softer cotton/polyester blend. Here are the technical details.

  • Available in three sizes: Twin (173cm x 224cm)/(68″ x 88″), Queen (224cm x 224cm)/(88″ x 88″) & King (264cm x 224cm)/(104″ x 88″)
  • Brushed polyester printed topside with a soft cotton/polyester off-white underside
  • Concealed zipper and ties for securing your duvet inside (insert not included)
  • Machine washable on a cold water gentle cycle. Use a mild detergent and tumble dry away, but stay away from the bleach.

Here are just some examples from the whole Pretty Rock Doona Cover collection:

To make the high standard of image requirements for such a large printed item, you’ll see that most Pretty Rock duvet covers are repeat patterns. Some more recent Pretty Rock images are offered as duvet covers, but as a single image with a white border.
