  • Postcard/poster shop selling retro prints featuring Sri Lanka (because it’s retro it refers to Ceylon). Can make for cool artwork presents and home decor. Prints are good quality and huge choice. Thoughtfully they provide free hard tube to protect your poster for those who buy posters.
  • Great posters and post cards. Not too expensive either! Makes nice souvenir for example.
  • A must visit if you are at Galle Fort. Beautiful retro prints of Sri Lanka, both in postcards and in posters (packed in a tube). Good stuff!
  • Really great and they are doing everything to make their customers happy! If you are there, visit their little shop or check out the great designs online :) Thank you again for saving my christmas! All the best :)
  • Meg and the team are so helpful at Stick No Bills and have an amazing array of posters on offer. Thanks for all your help!
