news from the notecard department

painting table with notecards in progress

All of a sudden there’s a real notecard department. It’s taken about 2 years of research, experiments and failures (so much failure) to put together this little collection of 11 notecards. The imagery is from the daily paintings. They’re printed on super deluxe, thick cotton paper. Totally frameworthy.

The cards a re 4.25 by 5.5 and are packaged with a heavy weight craft or natural white envelope. And you get a discount on multiple cards – 20% of 5 or more with code – artcard21

My first (and only card) last year was square. It features an interspecies friendship and I love it but it turns out square cards need extra postage. Such a pain. So lesson learned, the square card is being retired and you can get it a an awesome closeout price.

The response to the new cards has been outstanding and I’d love to add more stationary items next year with daily paintings imagery.  And maybe fabric.  After the holiday busyness I’m going to explore some hand printing methods and maybe try making some repeat patterns.

There is so much involved in choosing paper and learning about printing. I found a ton of help here.  And the paper saga continues. Did you know there is a global  paper shortage?  I bought all I could find and hopefully it will get me to next year when stuff will be available again.

Are you a snail mailer? Is there a design from the daily paintings you’d love to see on a card?  Let me know in the comments.

  1. Hello Ann…I am having such fun selecting and cutting fabrics from my stash (I am a quilter and sewist of all things) to make frogs and cats using your patterns…as I eagerly await the arrival of my (your) wool stuffing. Thank you for your beautiful ideas and patterns…and inspiration…if you could just add a little extra time for us to craft, that would be brilliant and much appreciated! :). Question … the little Siamese cat painting…is that available as a notecard??
