Glad Tags, for Glad Rags


We’re working on an exciting installation and branding project for Glad Rags Thrift, a brilliant new social enterprise shop in Glasgow’s South Side.

As a part of the Glad family, the shop is all about community, and we thought it’d be great if we could give an opportunity to have a little input into this project!

With that in mind, we’re looking for your favourite song lyrics, and fashion quotes!
The best ones will be immortalised forever on laser etched timber panels as part of an installation we are working on with The Maklab!

Either submit them via the form below, or tweet / instagram them using hashtag #gladtags and we’ll pick the best ones to include in our graphic installation!

*** It’s important you submit this way to ensure they are seen. ***
