The Mountain Artwear

The Mountain T-shirts are well known for their soft “suede like” finish & feel and their eye catching designs. Working with well known artists and their own team of designers they produce many wonderful designs ranging from fantasy to animal kingdom and from native American to Humor each and every year.

The Mountain t-shirts are made from 100% cotton, all the garments are pre-shrunk and hand dyed, the designs are printed with environmentally friendly water based inks. This means you can simply iron across our prints. Try it on a T-Shirt that is printed with plastic inks and see what happens (At your own risk)! The Mountain prides itself in obtaining the Oeko-Tex 100 certification issued by The Institute of Research and Testing in Textile Ecology. Over 100 individual tests were carried out to ensure the production process and the garments are manufactured free from any harmful substances.

You can actually feel the quality ! The cotton is top grade and the printing becomes part of the fabric. As a result from a patented printing process, buying a Mountain T-shirt means being able to enjoy it for years to come without cracking or loss of the image.

As the quality of the shirts and the detail of the designs are unique the shirts actually sell themselves. Sales will be best when products are displayed in the best possible way. We are very pleased to offer you a wide range of services and display stands as well as free advice on setting up a t shirt display in your shop. For more detail on those please see the chapter Services & Merchandising in the products menu. Have special look at the space saving, time saving and sales increasing T shirt in a Giftbox.

The Mountain makes selling T-shirts so much easier. Don't leave this site before you have browsed the t shirts in the products menu.

Tree-Free Greetings

Tree-Free cards are not like just any card you can find in a card shop.
The strong designs and the beautiful colors will stand out in any display. The true value of the card shows when you look at the inside of the card, which is a softly colored mirrored image of the card. Even the envelop is full color and will complement the card.

The majority of Tree-Free cards are without text inside which makes them extremely popular as they can be used any time during the year for any reason or occasion. New to the range are some collections that incorporate greetings. This is detailed next to each individual item in our Tree-Free catalogue as well as on this website.

Tree-Free produce their unique range of greeting cards from an environmentally friendly paper made from a plant called Kenaf. This plant grows a lot quicker than trees do. Using Kenaf instead of trees helps save valuable animal habitats and helps save the planet as a whole.

Tree-Free Notelets

Tree-Free does more than producing unique greeting cards. In 2003 they introduced a whole new, now very popular, concept of greeting cards in a memory tin. They are the same special cards as you can buy as a greeting card, just smaller. They make ideal notelets. To be used with a present or attached to a lovely bouquet of flowers or even to use as a gift voucher card. The ideas of how to use these notelets are absolutely endless. 12 cards and matching envelops are presented in a tin box that is a present in itself. The tin box is highly decorated with the same quality print as the cards. The lid of the tin actually contains one of the cards. As it can be removed it then creates the opportunity to replace it with any other photo or piece of art. We have had feedback from customers informing us the tin box is now in use in many different ways. Lunch, jewellery, stamp or coin box are just a few of them.

Tree-Free Noteables � Product Information
Each memory box is sold individually, containing 12 cards and 12 envelopes. Some memory boxes contain 4 designs, 3 cards of each design. Others may contain 12 cards of one design; this is detailed next to each item. A Memory Box measures 190mm x 135mm. Note cards measure 152mm x 100mm, envelope measures 160mm x x109mm. Total weight per memory box including cards is 297 grams.


Angel Star Inspired Products

Angels have been with us for a long time. Now they seem to attract more and more attention all over Europe. Because of their serene appearance the Angel Star range of angelic gifts and figurines has seen a dramatic increase in sales over the past years. More than with any other product range our sales have been boosted by increased ordering from our existing customers, in addition to new customers that find their way to this calming and inspiring angelic product.

Angel Gifts
Angel Star produces a beautiful range of angelic gifts and figurines. All the products are designed by Angel Star USA.

We highly recommend to browse through the on line catalog as words simply can not describe what you are about to see.

Memorial Gifts
Late 2005 we were able to introduce a complete new range of products from the Angel Star family : SERENITY HEART. Many Angel Star retailers were told by their customers that they used their Angel Star gift to put on a grave or to use as a keepsake. This inspired Angel Star to create a range especially for that purpose.
We are now in a position to supply to the funeral industry (which will include specialist florists and comfort retailers) a comprehensive range of urns and keepsakes. In addition to the serene Angel urns we also offer pewter and marble effect urns. New for 2007 are urns for your beloved pets.
