170gsm Cards.

I have recently began a project that involves me designing and making cards. My design plays on the weighting of different papers and cards and was partly inspired my the "Self descriptive" nature of a painting by John Balderssari. When I began designing the card I intended to use no ink and only a single piece of card. I experiemented with this idea and I am still developing it and hope that It will soon be a reality. I also experimented with ink to label the card which I feel creates a very contrasting image that is easily viewed. I designed the card in a very minimalist fasion to emphasise the card as the most important aspect of the design (rather than any decorative aspect that a traditional card would have). I have also created Christmas and Valentines Day cards that I will soon show on my blog. If you are interested in purchasing any of my cards then simply email me at to arrage it. They are £1 each with a hand made envelope but I will discount larger orders.

Above is my first edition of my hand made birthay cards

Above are my inital experiments using the lead letters and the 170gsm card
Above you can see the way the card has been indented by the hammering of the letters.
