Bon voyage is the greeting used to express good wishes to someone about to set off on a journey. This journey does not only have to be a physical journey, but it could also be a different path in life.
Our bon voyage – farewell – retirement cards are a unisex design – a boat. The sailing boat is a great metaphor for sailing off into the sunset. These bon voyage – retirement cards are suitable to use as the obvious bon voyage or farewell card. You could even use them as a good luck or retirement greeting card.
Hand Printed Bon voyage – farewell -retirement Cards
Each bon voyage – farewell – retirement card has been individually printed by hand using the technique called Lino Block Printing. This technique of hand making cards ensures that every card has its own unique application of ink, unlike commercially printed cards. Each card has a slightly different pattern of ink, which you can see on the cards. You can see and feel the ink on the papers’ surface and this makes them feel luxurious and special.
Australian made (or milled) cards
Whenever possible we select Australian milled paper products. We do this to support our own Australian economy and businesses before supporting those offshore. We have done a lot of research to find and use greeting card products that are either fully recycled or have a large percentage of their paper content that is recycled. Our greeting cards come in a range of paper colors or types and different printed colors. The ink that we use in our Lino printing process is proudly Australian made. Furthermore, the ink is also non-toxic, so you can pop your cards into the compost when you are finished admiring them.
You are not limited to the boat design greeting card. Our dove greeting card can also symbolise flying off to new horizons.
