New Cards ~ New Printer

I tried out a new printer for cards that Shawna recommended, and I’m totally delighted with the quality of the cards. Not only the quality, but the great help I received just to make sure my order came out right. Thank you Shawna for all your advice. 🙂

For a trial I selected two of my paintings…

I used photo shop to make the back and the front, in order to send them in to be printed. This is what they looked like…

Cat Print is the name of the company.  I was able to get a custom size for my cards, and this really appealed to me as I wanted them to be square 5″ x 5″.

These two cards are available for sale in my Etsy shop, and there will be more cards coming soon, as I’ve been getting ready for an Art Walk I’m participating in next month. More on that later, though…

I’m also working on my 2015 Calendar…  I’ll be sharing that here later, too. 🙂

Has anyone ever ordered clear protective sleeves for note cards?

  1. I also think the square would be nice – and distinctive. What stock did you choose? I looked at the site and can’t wrap my head around the felt one.


    1. I used the Heavy Card Stock – Gloss. It has a beautiful finish, not glossy, but like a satin. I love it!. I didn’t notice the felt one… interesting. Maybe it is matte, but with a texture to it???


    1. Yes, you are. 🙂 Thank you so much! And thanks for the info on the protective sleeves. I’m curious about the card stock you chose. It’s hard to know what to get. I just followed their recommendations. Did you go with a matte or a gloss?

      Another novice artist question??? Do you sign your cards?


      1. No I don’t sign them. I just put my logo and name and contact info on the back. I learned with the new cards that I have to sign my paintings a little higher and out from the edge so that the signature will show up on the cards. I think I used ultra heavy card stock but I was told they can’t fold that paper in the states but they can in canada!
