The Retropolis Travel Bureau – inviting you to visit the retro future

Filed under Works in Progress

Art of the Retro Future

The second of my new Zazzle stores is called the Retropolis Travel Bureau – yet another agency (like the Retropolis Transit Authority) of the retro future. Give me enough time, and I could probably put together an entire New Deal for the Future That Never Was. 🙂

Retro Robot Name TagLike Ars Celtica, which I mentioned yesterday, I’ve taken advantage of a new product range to make some customizable items like business cards (check out the Airship Captain!), postcards, and greeting cards.

Something unique to the Travel Bureau, though, is a selection of retro-futuristic name tags. They’re also customizable, so their default label (“You can call me…”) can easily be changed to the name of an event – like a party or convention, for example – and even the names can be added, though you probably wouldn’t want that since all six tags on a sheet get the same text. I really enjoyed making these.

And also like Ars Celtica, there are some uber cool coffee mug styles and other items to choose from.

I had a great time customizing this store, including a “Tourist Info” page that’s basically the Travel Bureau’s newspaper. It’s got tourist advisories and the sort of news items you’d be likely to find in a community newsletter of this type. With mad scientists and space pirates thrown into the mix, of course.

You’ve outdone yourself here! The business cards are gorgeous. I will be investing, I think. 🙂

Thanks! I’m sure there are people who’d love to find those, and I wish I knew how to help them do that :).

Though weirdly enough I have seen a bunch of folks – almost all of them in the UK – arrive right at the business cards page today. My tracking there is horrendous so I can’t tell where they’re coming from, though. So I vote for “aliens sent them!”
