Limited edition 'Masquerades' and 'Maunsell Forts' together with a new payment system — PayPal


A special limited edition print of the National Finals results is now available featuring the Philip Wilby cartoon that appeared in October's Brass Band World — plus all the points and placings. A 'well worth' having memento especially if your band took part in the contest. A similar print is available for this years British Open.

For Maunsell Forts go to:

For Masquerade go to:

In future there will be a souvenir print for most of the main contests featuring cartoons by NEZZY as soon after the results as possible. It is intended to make these very short runs of around 50-100 prints, so you will need to get them quickly or pre-order by e-mailing through the web site.

Brass Band house plaques will be available later this week. There are four raised motif designs — cornet/tuba or euph/trombone/bandsman playing the cornet — each motif is hand painted. You can have your house name/number included within the price of £24.95 (inc.p&p UK).

PAYPAL — a payment service — is now available on www.nezzycartoons.com for those of you who are signed up with this online payment facility. For those who have not experienced PayPal it is an additional method of securely paying for goods on the internet and is recognised in 38 countries worldwide. Should you wish to use this service, sign up today for a reliable and secure service. This is of course in addition to the 'traditional' shopping cart online ordering system we currently offer.
