Information about the products I sell
All of my postcards, with the exception of a couple Christmas cards, are printed on really heavyweight 310-gsm bright white cotton rag paper. This is a really expensive fine art printing paper with a lovely texture and most importantly amazing colour reproduction. Earlier in my product selling career I outsourced my postcards but these didn’t have the quality (weight, texture, colour reproduction) I demanded so I make everything myself.
In the case of die-cut (shaped cut out) cards, these are cut out by myself using a die-cut cutting machine.
Notes about sizes. All of my rectangle cards are A6 in size. Please note there will be slight size discrepancies between postcard series as everything is designed individually. For example Belgium map postcards will dimensionally be slightly different to Edinburgh.
Everything is completely hand made, there’s no factory process anywhere, so please don’t expect everything to be 100% the same size. There may be 1-3mm difference in sizes.
There are two ways I provide prints. Prints bought for delivery in the UK are printed by myself using 260gsm lustre (semi-gloss) photo paper. This is a beautiful weighty paper to use with fantastic colour reproduction.
For prints bought outside of the UK, I have print partners in most regions around the world. They offer a similar paper with also great colour reproduction, but using a print paper ultimately saves a lot of money for you, the consumer. If I send prints from the UK, postage will be expensive, but by using print papers I’m able to offer free shipping on most prints.
These are printed and produced by myself. My jigsaw puzzles are printed on thick card and come with a satin finish. I print these myself using a sublimation printer and then they are heat pressed to product the final product. All jigsaw puzzles are then bagged up and posted in a metal tin. As of 2021 I’m able to print jigsaw puzzles up to 300-pieces (30×42.5cm) in size although from 2022, if demand requires, I hope to print 500-1000 piece jigsaw puzzles.
I produce two different kinds of sticker sheets, one is a regular sticker sheet and the other planner sticker sheets. The regular stick sheets are printed on a glossy sticker paper and I cut these myself. The planner stickers are printed on a heavyweight matte paper which is perfect for writing on. All sticker sheets are 6×9″ in size.
