Printing note cards for the upcoming art show, The Colour of Water.

I like to sell note cards at my art show, with pictures on the cards of the art work on display.


Visitors often like to have a memento of an art piece that they liked, and the note cards are an easy inexpensive purchase.

I give half of the proceeds to the Arts Centre, so I break even on the cost of producing the cards. It is good promotion and nice for both visitors and the Arts Centre.

Here are some the images that I reproduced on the cards.











Here are cards ready to go, displayed in one of my handmade baskets.
