Get Christmas wrapped up with The Big Issue Shop’s exclusive wrapping paper

Not only can you grab a gift with a social echo, but wrap it all up in our exclusive artist designed wrapping paper too!

Wrap your Christmas up in a social echo with The Big Issue Shop’s exclusive wrapping paper, designed by renowned artists Pure Evil, Ben Eine, David Shrigley and Nick White.

Back for a third year, the unique collection is designed in collaboration with Jealous Gallery and Art Republic.

Leading the way is Pure Evil with this bold Neon Bunny’ print in pink and black with a vivid 3D effect. The street artist has already blended street art and social change this year for The Big Issue Shop with two specially-designed t-shirts and hoodies.

Back for another year, street artist and graffiti letterform pioneer Ben Eine has designed some seriously ‘SEXY’ paper, after creating our exclusive CELEBRATE cover back in 2016 to mark the 200 millionth copy of The Big Issue.

Brighton-based visual artist David Shrigley has made sure that you can cover your carefully chosen gifts in good ‘VIBES’. Shrigley, best known for his distinctive drawing style and works that make satirical comments on everyday situations and human interactions, has drawn upon pink and white as his colours of choice to ensure that your gift stands out under the Christmas tree for all the right reasons.

Nick Smith’s distinctive Pantone Christmas tree print blends festive humour with a striking design. Smith is a lecturer on the BA Illustration Animation course at Kingston School of Art and his playful artwork manifests itself through multiple outputs including painting, collage, ceramics, drawing and zines.

You can even get your hands on exclusive signed pieces of each design – perfect for that special someone, or just as good to pop on your own wall instead!

All profit from this wrapping paper goes directly back to helping us continue to give people living on the margins a hand up.
