Now heading into its seventh year, Pride of Nottingham has long been the main Notts County community on the internet, bringing thousands of fans together to discuss everything black and white.
With Christmas on the horizon, we have decided to go a step further and begin selling exclusive Notts-themed prints, the perfect present for your Magpie-supporting family members and friends (or for yourself if you want!).
Simply click on our store link and you can see all the prints we currently have available, and some of the featured designs include Jimmy Sirrel, Jack Wheeler, Meadow Lane and some very neat Magpie artwork!
So, what inspired PON to begin selling these prints? Chris, the site's owner and manager, explains:
"A friend suggested selling prints and merchandise after he drew a picture for me that I now use as my display picture.
"I though it was a good idea and I have worked with three talented people to create stunning designs.
"The main goal is to support PON financially but I have hopes of improving the site further with custom work, so the sale of prints would help secure the sites future but also make it better."

And why should you, as a Notts fan, consider buying these prints?
Here is what Chris has to say:
"I feel these designs stand out very nicely, I have tried to focus on the current players but also legends.
"I am delighted with the prints and feel Notts fans will love having them hung up in their homes.
"It also helps to support a fan site that costs quite a bit to upkeep and these will take a personal burden off my shoulders.
"In turn they will be supporting an independent Notts fan site which works hard towards promoting the club and providing a pleasant environment for supporters to chat and express their feelings."
These wonderful, unique pieces of football memorabilia make an ideal gift for friends and family.

Caretaker manager Steve Chettle has admitted that Notts County's players were "gutted" after being pegged back late on against Morecambe.
The Magpies took the lead early in the second half when a cross from the right was nodded beyond Mark Halstead's reach by Kristian Dennis on 52 minutes.
However, a late scramble in the box culminated in Kevin Ellison turning the ball home after a goalmouth scramble following a corner and a final result of 1-1.
“The lads are gutted and I told them that I was disappointed for them,” Chettle told the Nottingham Post. “Being that way after only getting a point is good.
“Being disappointed when you know you can do better is not acceptable and we said that after the Cheltenham game. It is a step in the right direction, but it’s still only a point.
“Cheltenham winning means we are still playing catch-up so we need to win game after game. But a point is a small step and I will take small steps until we get to the big step at the end.”

Not great, but much better. Notts County put in a much improved performance against Morecambe at the Globe Arena today, but they relinquished a one-goal lead late on for a 1-1 final score.
The first half was pretty dour and with little to write home about, save for a good Kristian Dennis one-on-one chance which Mark Halstead skilfully kept out.
In the second period, Morecambe stepped up and Ajay Leitch-Smith threatened, while Liam Mandeville having an effort tipped behind inside the first five minutes.
Notts went on to take the lead, however, a cross from the right being nodded beyond Halstead's reach by Kristian Dennis on 52 minutes.
Nathan Thomas almost doubled County's lead when he saw a fierce drive parried to safety by the opposition goalkeeper, while Morecambe stepped up in a bid to salvage something from the game.
And salvage something they did, when a scramble in the box culminated in Kevin Ellison turning the ball home after a goalmouth scramble following a corner.
Five minutes of injury time were played out, during which Jamie Turley was called out by the opposition players for an alleged handball, but nothing was given as the spoils ended up being shared.

Notts County have appointed former AFC Wimbledon boss Neal Ardley as their new manager.
The 46-year-old becomes the Magpies' third manager of the season, following the sackings of Kevin Nolan in August and Harry Kewell earlier this month.
Ardley saved the Dons from relegation to the National League on the final day of the 2012-13 season before taking them into League One via the playoffs three years later.
"Having enjoyed very productive discussions with Neal and following close consultation with the board and key staff, I am very confident we have selected the right man to deliver our short and long-term targets," Hardy told the official website.
"Our biggest priority is preserving our proud status as the world's oldest Football League club and in Neal we have someone who knows what it takes to survive.
"Neither he nor I are under any illusions it's going to be easy but we are both confident of achieving this very important aim.
"Beyond that, Neal has demonstrated an ability to win promotion from League Two and sustain a club at a higher level. I hope, in time, he will be able to deliver the same for us."
Ardley, who left Wimbledon earlier this month and will be assisted by Neil Cox, added: "I would like to say a huge thank you to the chairman for giving me the opportunity to manage such a magnificent club.
"There are few clubs who could have tempted me into such a quick return to management following what was obviously an emotional departure from Wimbledon, a club I love dearly.
"But the chance to manage Notts County is one I couldn't let pass and I will come back from my break fully refreshed and determined to drive us up the table."

Teenage defender Declan Dunn has signed his first professional contract with Notts County.
The 18-year-old made his senior debut for the Magpies in the 4-0 FA Cup first round defeat away at Barnsley and has been a regular in reserve fixtures this term.
Dunn joined the Notts academy at Under-10s level and spoke proudly of the latest development in his fledgling career.
“I came in after the Barnsley match and Paul asked me to come into the office and told me I was being offered a contract,” Dunn told the club website.
“It’s a massive weight lifted off my shoulders because it’s something I’ve wanted for a long time and I’ve worked hard for it.
“I’m happy that I’ve been showing enough and now I need to keep pushing in reserve games and getting as much first team-action as I can.
“It’s a really good thing for myself and my family.
“I’ve been here for eight or nine years so I’ve seen a lot of coaches come and go but the staff and the players around me have always made me want to push hard to improve.
“I’ve played at Meadow Lane in the FA Youth Cup but not for the first team so that’s my aim for the rest of this season.”

Notts County's season continues to lurch from crisis to crisis with arguably the worst performance of the season - if not in recent years - against Cheltenham Town at Meadow Lane on Saturday.
Following the impressive 4-2 win against Doncaster Rovers in the EFL Trophy, there was some scope for optimism as Steve Chettle took over as interim boss after Harry Kewell's sacking.
But against the struggling Robins, it was anything but, as a dour first-half performance for both sides nevertheless saw the visitors lead at the break from Luke Varney's simple goal.
The Notts defence, time and time again not fit for purpose, was at fault for all of the three goals shipped against Cheltenham, a performance that led to fans literally queuing to leave well before full time.
You've got to feel sorry for ARLukomski, still a teenager and subject to this psychological torture from watching the Magpies perform as they're doing - then again, that seems to be the fate of all us Notts fans.
Here is his latest vlog, as he declares Notts to be at crisis point in a detailed analysis prior to, during and after the game.

Notts County fans have seen a lot of displays over the last few years that can be described as "the worst performance" they've ever seen and on Saturday there was another contender.
The day's opponents, Cheltenham Town, were hardly setting League Two alight prior to kickoff but they ended up securing a 3-0 victory against a Notts side that was frankly diabolical.
Steve Chettle had masterminded a decent 4-2 win over Doncaster Rovers in midweek and the hope was that something similar could have been conjured up against a not-particularly-good opponent.
But with Notts fans having had more false dawns than a picture book of sunrises in recent years, it was no surprise that the Magpies would find themselves trailing at the break.
Prior to the half-time whistle it wasn't a particularly exciting game - frankly it was like watching Sunday league - but as poor as the Robins were, they still ended up taking the lead in a way we've all seen before.
Ryan Broom's cross was met by the unmarked Luke Varney, who headed home the opener on 35 minutes with the Notts defence's one job - defending - clearly not done.
Ross Fitzsimons arguably emerged with credit as Chris Hussey was denied by the stopper after yet another defensive botch job.
County made a tactical switch at half-time as they changed from three at the back to 4-4-2 but things only went worse from then on as Varney claimed a second with a corner that, once again, bamboozled the Notts back line.
Tyrone Barnett eventually wrapped things up late on with a scuffed finish from close range which, not for the first time this season, led to a premature Black & White Army exodus.

Steve Chettle has called on Notts County's players to carry their momentum from their 4-2 win over Doncaster Rovers into the weekend League Two encounter against Cheltenham Town.
Wednesday night saw the Magpies produce somewhat of a shock result in the EFL Trophy as they surged into a 3-0 half-time lead against Rovers and, despite shipping two goals, they added one more for the solid win.
Chettle was pleased to see Notts get through into the second round after finishing second in Group G behind Newcastle United's reserve/youth side but was equally eager to claim a much-needed win in terms of going into league action.
“I was very pleased to get through,” he told the Nottingham Post.
“We need to win football matches, we need to get momentum and need to get into good habits and break the habit of losing games.
“Winning will hopefully kickstart us when we get to the Cheltenham game at the weekend.”

Notts County have confirmed the departure of Harry Kewell after just 14 matches in charge.
The Australia legend signed a three-year contract to replace Kevin Nolan at Meadow Lane in early September.
Despite a bright run early on in his tenure, performances and results have since slumped, and the Magpies sit 22nd in the table.
“Results have not been good enough and performance levels are a continuing concern,” chairman Alan Hardy told the club website.
“We see no reason to continue with something we don’t think can work.”
Steve Chettle will take temporary control of County’s first team, with the club hoping to announce a permanent replacement ahead of Saturday’s game with Cheltenham.
Kewell, who left Crawley to join the Magpies, departs alongside assistant manager Warren Feeney and first-team analyst Paul Murphy.

Notts County boss Harry Kewell has claimed that Kristian Dennis is "100 percent capable" of reaching double figures and most likely just needs to up his match fitness.
The Magpies forward has been drafted into the starting XI following injuries to Jon Stead and Kane Hemmings, but has found the going tough against Port Vale and Oldham Athletic.
“I do have sympathy with him,” Kewell told the Nottingham Post. “But he is a fantastic player and he knows the role.
“He’s come up against three centre-backs or two, but he knows what he’s got to do.
“He’s probably just missing that little bit of match fitness. If he can get that, then fantastic. We’ve just got to keep going, keep giving him confidence and keep giving him chances.
“He’s a great player and a great lad. He wants to score goals so let’s see if we can deliver that to him.
“He is 100 percent capable of [reaching double figures], but I suppose we are all shy of a little bit of confidence.”

Notts County's season continues to lurch from one crisis to another as the Magpies were humbled in a 4-0 loss at Barnsley in the first round of the FA Cup.
Harry Kewell's side wasn't bad in the first half, hanging on to their clean sheet until the break.
In the second minute they even got the ball into the back of the net, only for Rob Milsom's free kick to be chalked off for offside.
However, it all went pear-shaped after the restart as Cauley Woodrow opened the scoring for the Tykes.
Further second-half goals from Zeki Fryers, Brad Potts and Kieffer Moore ended up making light work of Notts, who must once again go back to the drawing board.
ARLukomski, Pride of Nottingham vlogger and long-suffering Notts fan, has given his thoughts on the latest debacle involving the Magpies.

Another weekend, another completely dispiriting Notts County performance that leaves you feeling deflated.
Although the Magpies were not expected to win against Barnsley - a team currently sitting fourth in the League One table - in the FA Cup, they were at least expected to put up a fight.
And to a degree they did, as they hung on to their clean sheet until the break, and in the second minute they even got the ball into the back of the net, only for Rob Milsom's free kick to be chalked off for offside.
But the Tykes did begin getting into their stride during the first half and, shortly after the restart, they managed to break the deadlock.
On 48 minutes, Fulham loanee Cauley Woodrow latched onto Cameron McGeehan's through ball - Elliott Ward effectively helped the ball on its way - and volleyed home after getting beyond Jamie Turley.
It was 2-0 five minutes later in the 53rd minute when the hosts efficiently switched the ball from left to right and a low cross from Brad Potts was slotted home from inside the area by full-back Zeki Fryers.
Brad Potts went close to converting Kieffer Moore's low cross in a let-off for Notts before the pair combined again and this time the former tapped home from inside the six-yard area for game, set and match.
By this point the Black and White Army had all but given up hope of even forcing a replay and the final nail in the coffin came on 81 minutes as Moore added a fourth, nodding home a left-wing cross from two yards out.
But hey, at least we can concentrate on the league, right?!
