Hello everyone! Taking a small breather from my colour series and other art to update on my card line that I mentioned in this post here. (The designs in that particular post were not chosen after all, and may do something else with them later. See more relevant designs below..)
So, since the winter I’ve been planning and editing my cards from 2018, picking out the good ones and organizing a little. I was contemplating for a while of what to do with them and where to put them. If anyone’s been following my Instagram, you’d know already that I picked Redbubble, at least for now. Maybe in the future I’ll make them available to other sites. But Redbubble was the most basic and simple site for me, plus an on-demand printer makes it hassle-free and one click shopping for customers.
Without further ado, here’s the gathering of designs I chose to edit into greeting cards:
In total, there’s six designs. However, only three actually made it so far on my Redbubble, with different messages on the front (and blank inside) to choose from:
The three messages are broken down into three ‘categories’ of sayings on the front of the cards:
– Best Wishes
– Thank You
The reason I picked these variant of sayings was because of the simplicity and basic yet variety of ways to display them. If you’ve noticed, they work with all three of those designs, and they are open for whatever emotion or occasion that is necessary. Graduation? Wedding? Birthday? A Celebration? Gratitude? Hope? Wishing Well? etcetc
I even have a ‘ … ‘ after them so that the buyer can continue to write their message inside the card.
Now, look at the very top left with all six designs from 2018. There are in fact three designs still not on Redbubble, but they will be soon as of this week. These ones are only going to be basic ‘Thank You’ cards. I did this because, even though I want a variety, I also don’t want to overwhelm myself or people looking. I like balance, and simple things. For my 2019 line of cards, I’ll do something similar, in which I’ll have a certain variant of sayings and messages for certain designs that work, and more than just those ones above. Some designs are more versatile than others. Aaaand in 2020 I hope to go even further into invitations!
Later this week I’ll have another post featuring my purple floral design (seen above) and comparing my own printed cards vs. Redbubble’s card. This post is getting lengthy!
