Another Nifty x Gummie Walk!


Our first Nifty x Gummie Insta-walk in February (read all about it here) was super successful and we had so many people asking us to make it a regular thing, that of course we had to oblige. The first walk was around our hood, Woodstock, discovering some incredible street art. The Insta-walk this month is a guided urban design tour, don’t want to give too much away, and tell you all the places we’ll be going, but we promise you don’t want to miss this one!

Meet the Nifty and Gummie teams at Truth Prestwich Memorial this Saturday, 21 March at 3pm, the walk is about 2 hours long and there is a really cool Instagram exhibition happening in town afterwards, but we’ll save that info for another blog post. Bring your iPhone/smartphone or SLR camera, some snacks and supplies, oh and don’t forget to tag your Instagrams with #NiftyxGummieInstawalk so we can track them all. Can’t wait to meet y’all, hope to see you there :)

A Nifty Valentines

Processed with VSCOcam with 4 preset

Valentines Day is just around the corner, it’s kinda crazy because it feels like Christmas was like 2 days ago.. Photographs are a super special gift – yes we’re totes biased, but honestly who disagrees with that? If you would like to give your valentine a batch of Nifty memories and still want to use them to create a cool DIY – think photo album or getting them framed, then we suggest you get your order in now to give yourself enough time to get creative..

To ensure you get your delivery of prints by Friday the 13th of February – 1 day before the big day here are the dates you need to know:

  • For deliveries going to Durban & Johannesburg you need to place your order by the 6th of February
  • For Cape Town deliveries you need to place your order by the 9th of February
  • If you’re in Cape Town and would like to do a local collection from our studio in Woodstock, read how to do that here – you need to get your order in by the 11th and you’ll be able to pick them up on the 12th & 13th once we’ve processed the order!

PS if you love our Nifty alphabet as shown above, we’ve made the letters ‘open source’ – read this blog post here, on how you can order & use them yourself :)

Local Collection!

Introducing local collection! This is only applicable for Capetonians, we get tons of emails about this, and whilst this option isn’t live on the website (yet) this is how it works – if you would like to collect your order from our studio in Buchanan Square, Woodstock & save the R35 delivery fee as well as courier waiting time, just email before placing your order. We will then email you a Nifty voucher for R35 which you can then use to cancel the delivery fee when checking out with your order. Once we’ve got your order you’ll get an email as soon as your batch of prints is ready for pickup, normally the next day – between 9am – 5pm on weekdays. It’s as simple as that, we look forward to meeting you at the studio, espressos on tap & table tennis if you’re game!

Street Art – Nifty Weekly Project Recap

Ahmazing street art as spotted by @rowaneva, in our hood, Woodstock!

Last week’s #NiftyWeeklyProject theme was street art and your submissions made it one of our favourite weeks ever! Street art has the power to transform a city, or space – it definitely has in Woodstock, the hood that we work in. It takes a mundane, often run down wall and turns it into a beautiful piece of art, and sometimes even more than that, a talking point. We got submissions of places and spaces from Woodstock, all the way to street art in Berlin, Paris and Melbourne – so thank you so much for your participation, it really does make our week going through all of your photographs.

This week’s theme is: it smells like summer. We want you to share your favourite summer moments with us, from lying on Clifton 2nd, seeing the waves crash, hearing ‘ice-cream, cold driiiiinks, granadilla lollieeees’ – show us the best summer has to offer. Rules are the same as always, no tagging of old photos, only new uploads please. If we love your photo and regram it on our Instagram you’ll win a voucher for x16 Nifty Strips, delivery not included. Okay now get snapping! Also if you have cool ideas for different weekly themes, leave us a comment below :)
