Hello Tina & dear friends!
Have you ever recreated your artwork into a card or print? I have always enjoyed creating one of a kind cards for the special people in my life and feel warm & giddy inside when I pop one in the mail, wondering how the person will react when they open their mailbox. This is one of the reasons I delight in our postcard project. I started thinking about printing my artwork onto cards and have been selling them at The Artists’ Cooperative Gallery of Westerly, at Artisans as well as open studio events. I am overjoyed and grateful for every one that sells and want to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have helped support my creative dream. It means THE WORLD to me!
The images above are my latest cards, hot off the presses! They are from some of my new work and I wondered if you could take a moment to share which ones are your favorite? The print quality is great and they have a lovely glossy sheen. I was even able to put my website on the back! It made me feel so “official” ~Ha! I added the “be happy” stamp for extra fun! What do you think?
It has been on my mind to have some of my work printed larger on nice, archival paper which could then be framed. This is an area I don’t know much about and have been researching. I wondered what you thought of prints versus original artwork? Would you buy a print if you couldn’t afford the original? Do you own any prints? Have you printed your own artwork? If so, do you have any considerations or thoughts as to where to I could get them printed in a cost effective way? I TRULY value your thoughts and ideas and would GREATLY appreciate any feedback you have in the comments. YOU ARE THE BEST!!! Thank YOU!
