£14.00


A funny and honest family poem print in A4 size with funky typographic design.

Our witty and heartfelt family print makes the perfect gift for parents, siblings and friends - whether it's for a birthday, christening, Christmas, Mother's Day, or becoming a new parent. Touchingly, it is also a popular gift for newly adopting families, which makes us very proud!

Written by our award-winning poet Joanna Miller, this 21 line poem captures the fun times, the not so fun times(!) and the unrivalled bond we share with our families.

Whether it's relying, crying or a little white lying, everyone will recognise the experiences described in 'What is a Family?'

The font choice is: Purple, Red, Dark Blue, Light Blue, Taupe or Black On Brown.

We would be happy to frame the print for you using our white wooden custom-made frames. 

For an additional fee, you are welcome to add a short message (max 8 words) at the bottom of the poem.

The poem is printed onto the highest quality GF Smith A4 card (330gsm) using Dura-Bright waterproof ink. There is no mount around the print.

Each print is lovingly produced to order. Unframed prints arrive flat, wrapped in cellophane, in a super stiff envelope.

For an extra fee we can frame the print for you. The lightweight wooden frames are either matt white with a slightly grained effect, smooth white or slim matt black. Frames have a hook for wall hanging. The front is perspex.

Each frame is hand finished in the UK by Fine Art Trade Guild commended framers. The product is dispatched in a purpose-made picture box.

The print is H30 x W21cm (A4) and when framed is H34.5 x W25.7 x D2cm.

What is a Family?

It’s sharing, comparing, bonding & caring

It’s hugging & squeezing, talking & teasing

It’s praising & knowing, belonging & growing

It’s guiding, providing, trusting, confiding

It’s loving & kissing, nurturing, missing

It’s working & playing, treating & paying

It’s arguing, fighting & often delighting

It’s visiting, hosting & Sunday roasting

It’s relaxing & boring, most reassuring

It’s coaxing & charming, appeasing & calming

It’s waiting, debating, fulfilling, elating

It’s needing & feeding & tactful conceding

It’s driving, conniving, learning & thriving

It’s holding & nursing, worrying, cursing

It’s stressing, confessing & making a messing

It’s loaning & moaning, helping & phoning

It’s bickering, laughing, bedding & bathing

It’s listening, coping, planning & hoping

It’s relying, crying, a little white lying

It’s forgiving & mending, liking, depending

That’s what makes a family!
