A sympathy greeting card is sometimes the hardest one to choose. I prefer to keep the card design simple and let my words speak for me.
Hand Printed sympathy greeting Cards
Each sympathy greeting 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. I feel that it is fitting that the final card you will send to remember someone has been hand crafted.
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.
