Saints_Aplenty: Designs and Collections is an online store powered by Zazzle that showcases the religious art of a bygone era on tasteful, modern Christian gifts featuring saints for you, your family, and friends for use in your church, school, home, and office. During the late 19th-early 20th century, color printing replaced hand coloring in the production of sacred images. The new techniques of chromolithography and chromoxylography--printing from multiple limestone slabs and wood blocks respectively--were used to mass produce vivid devotional prints (or, in everyday language, holy cards) and lavish illustrations for books chronicling the lives of the saints. All images on our products are derived from such antique or vintage items in the designer's private collection of religious ephemera or from public domain resources.
On Zazzle, our products are arranged in collections by Saint. Each collection numbers between 15 and 150 products. See the picture galleries below for "Our Latest Collections" and "Saints of the Month" for sample items. Note Well: Not all saints are available on all products! (Regular visitors will notice some changes. We're in the the process of reorganizing and expanding the website. We will be keeping "Our Latest Collections" showcase on this the home page. But, we are phasing out the presence of monthly showcases here. Instead, monthly showcases for the entire year are now to be found on two dedicated pages: "Saints of the Month (January-June)" and "Saints of the Month (July-December)". The showcase of the current month still auto scrolls. The showcases for other months can be navigated by using the thumbnails beneath. Happy browsing!)
Spring abounds with significant religious events: First Communions, Confirmations, and Ordinations! See our "Spring Religious Events Showcase" below for keepsake gift ideas! For First Communions... St Tarcisius gifts and items featuring Jesus Instituting or Holding the Eucharist. For Confirmations, the Descending Holy Sprit whether or not in a Pentecost scene. For Ordinations to the priesthood, our Jesus with the Eucharist again but differently customized. For ordinations to the transitional or permanent diaconate, items featuring St. Stephen the ProtoMartyr or St. Lawrence of Rome. And, for any religious event at all, our birthstone crosses items! Happy browsing!
Delayed because of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the British Museum’s long-awaited exhibition commemorating the 850th Anniversary of the murder of St. Thomas Becket on 29 December 1170 opened on 20 May 2021. It is scheduled to run through 22 August 2021. The exhibit has sparked renewed interest in this saint. Visit our Becket page for info on the exhibit, our Saints_Aplenty Becket COLLECTIONS, and our new Pinterest Board all about Becket.
Speaking of Spring... Spring has sprung! Those April showers (in the Northern Hemisphere, at least) are bringing forth May flowers! Did you add a spiritual dimension this year to your gardening by planting a Mary Garden, Rosary Garden, Prayer Garden, or Saint Garden? (Have no idea what we mean? We’ve compiled a handy reading list available as a board on Pinterest.) Here we are introducing just our Mary Garden and Rosary Garden Flags in a new scrolling showcase below. Other types to follow shortly. Too late for this year? Add a Prayer Garden, Mary Garden, or Saint Garden to your To-Do List for 2022! Whether you plant roses, herbs, vegetables, or pollinator-friendly flowers and plants, we’ll have a religious garden flag for you to add that perfect finishing touch!
(We know; we know: Garden Flags are TEMPORARILY out of stock. We've been assured they will return shortly. We have lots more to post!
Gift your Grill Master this Father's Day with one of our tongue-in-cheek "Grilling with St. Lawrence" products. St. Lawrence is patron saint of cooks and--wait for it--comedians. He famously said to his executioners who were roasting him on a gridiron: "Turn me over. I’m done on this side!” We like to think he would approve! Also available as "Cooking with..." item
This is "The Year of St. Joseph". We have now rolled out a number of new COLLECTIONS devoted to this Saint. See "Our Latest Collections" showcase!
Visit us on Pinterest for additional pictures!
Come back often! More saints, different styles, and additional products will be forthcoming. We're just getting started...
