New Greeting Cards!

So a couple of weeks back I was trying to hand make another batch of greeting cards as I have done now for the last three years, when my printer quality started to throw a wobbly. I did all the cleaning and realigning of the cartridges as I usually do when my printer has an off day but nothing has solved the issue this time. My printer is less than a year old and whilst it still works for printing invoices and paperwork, I can no longer rely on it for greeting cards. In all honesty, I've been waiting for this moment for months now, the moment where I can finally move away from hand making each and every one and moving onto professionally printed cards instead.

This of course costs money to get cards made which is the main reason I have been avoiding it for so long and hand making them. It was more cost effective short term, but long term it's not and it was also extremely time consuming and took me away from creating new designs. So I chose three designs to get the ball rolling and here they are!

I have a brand new design which is the doughnut birthday card, an existing one of the Mad Hatter and then an oldie but goodie has returned, the Moon of My Life design! I'm super pleased with how they turned out and they're on a lovely thick matte card stock with pastel coloured envelopes each. 

I have also taken the #nakedcards pledge and will no longer be popping my greeting cards into cellophane bags. Instead they'll come in candy striped paper bags to help reduce plastic and save the environment. As a small business, we're doing everything we can to reduce waste and switch to cardboard boxes too for parcels.

If you fancy snapping yourself some cards up, they're live now in my online indie store!

Thanks for reading,
