Celebrate being northern with some fantastically funny framed prints by The Ink Slinger. Simple yet effective, they are the perfect gift for someone who’s proud of being a northerner – we’re talking classic phrases like “Put the big light on”, “You alright?” and “I love that me”. For music fans, take a look at their lyric prints and take your favourite home.
