PRODUCT INFORMATION

Information about the products I sell

POSTCARDS

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.

 

PRINTS

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.

 

JIGSAW PUZZLES

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.

 

STICKER SHEETS

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.

First time I heard the “ clever sausage” this term was on the radio. I think it was a radio advert about a granny asked her grandson not drinking and driving and in the end of that advert she called him “wee clever sausage”! I just think this term is so cute!

So for this graduation card I use this as my inspiration. Hope you like it. 😊

English is not my first language and a lot of English words or saying always made me giggle and I like it! I still don’t know why Larry is so happy? 😂

I created this sweet floral birthday card for my first commission project from my agent at @advocateart01

Drawing flowers is so much fun but take a lot of patience and some time I really need to think about the composition, colour and style. So it’s a lot of work but I love project like this so I don’t mind the hard work at all.

I always love drawing snails. I think it’s because I used to have a pet snail when I was a child and I usually feed him/her cabbage leaves. I honestly don’t know what happened to that snail as I was really young. I hope he had good life somewhere 😅.

Hope you like my last graduation design this week. I’m going back to drawing map for a few days now. So I will be a bit quieter on Instagram. ☺️❤️

I’m working on some graduation cards at moment. Here is the first one. I rework my whales illustrations for this designs. I just love drawing animals wearing clothes 🤣. It just so much fun to draw things like this. Almost feel like I’m playing dolls and dress them with my graphic tablets.

Note to myself: must draw more cute animals in the future.

I can draw plants everyday. 😌

Apart from food and maps, plants are another things I love to draw. What’s your favorite thing to draw?

Another thank you card design. My agent really like the bee and honey collection so she encouraged me to create more designs around this collection. Be honest I can draw these little bees every day. 🥰
