“Keep Calm and Carry On” Canvas Gallery Wrap
At the start of World War II, the British government ordered the Ministry of Information to prepare morale-boosting propaganda to post around the country. Among the dignified designs was a last-resort model, to be brought out only in the event of a German invasion. The simple message, "Keep Calm and Carry On," was printed in crisp capital letters beneath the reassuringly strong lines of King George VI’s crown. Fortunately, the MOI never needed to dispatch the posters, and most were destroyed following the war.
Nearly 60 years later, the owners of a bookshop unearthed a surviving copy hidden among dusty books and boxes, presumably waiting out the Cold War. Today, the iconic poster appears in design magazines and blogs around the world. This crisp, 24”x36” reproduction print retains the original message against a choice of eight bold background colors. The art is ready to hang without a frame due to its gallery-wrapped construction, which drapes the image over the edge of the canvas.
- Iconic phrase from WWII-era England
- White lettering and crown against a choice from eight background colors
- Gallery-wrapped design wraps image around the canvas's edge
- Ready to hang over mantels or embarrassing family photos
- Dimensions: 24”x36”

Everyone should have access to fine art. That's the sentiment that led Joseph Garcia and Nick Nichols to found Gallery Direct. Home to more than 6,000 images, which Nick has carefully curated for more than a decade, the site specializes in transforming dynamic images into ready-to-hang works of art. Customers can opt to cherish one of the site's artist-created images or one of their own photographs of a favorite vacation destination, their family, or the neighbors' more attractive family. The staff then prints them in-house on aluminum, paper, birchwood, canvas, mirror, acrylic glass, or canvas, and lovingly finishes pieces with wooden frames and puttied seams.
