My bespoke greeting card service is a unique way to connect with your clients. I will design and manufacture luxury greeting cards that reflect the best of your business, reinforce your brand and strengthen your relationship with clients.
This is a premium service that makes the most of my skills as a designer. As part of the design package I will collaborate with you closely, from producing multiple design sketches to completing, revising and refining the final design.
Note that I produce animal artwork, and any designs I create will feature animals. Any bespoke greeting cards I create may not be sold commercially without my prior agreement.
I’ve developed a design process that produces work of the highest quality. Here are the stages involved in creating your bespoke greeting card:
We’ll kick off with a chat, over zoom or email, about what you’re looking for and what I think will work best. We’ll agree a direction for your design to take, and I’ll send over a quote.
Next, after looking through your brand guidelines and any other relevant branding documentation, I’ll research and develop possible ideas and run them by you for approval.
I’ll then produce three sketches for possible designs.
When you’ve reviewed the sketches, I’ll revise one of them to incorporate any feedback you might have. This will finalise the basic design.
After you’ve approved the final sketch, I’ll draw it with pen and ink. Depending on their complexity, the drawings for my greeting cards can take up to 15-20 hours. As they’re drawn with permanent ink, they can’t be altered once they’re completed.
I’ll then scan the ink drawing and add colour to it digitally, as well as adding any text, logos and layout features.
If you’d like any alterations to the digital elements of the design, I’ll make those before arriving at the final, print-ready design.
With the design finalised, I’ll have physical samples of it printed to ensure that the colours, scale and design all translate effectively to the physical product.
Finally, I’ll manufacture the cards, package them according to your specifications and have them delivered to an address of your choosing. I’m able to deliver cards internationally – note that customs and import fees may apply at the border.
