With a characterful hot dog, sweet-smelling doughnuts and birthday cake, this month’s CardNest pack features three new artists. I’m personally excited to reveal something that I’ve not seen done before in greetings – scratch and sniff cards! Yep, really! These have been designed and developed by Pompadour Press (more below) and they’re so novel and unique. It was absolutely not a chore pairing the cards with real doughnuts for the photos. Take a peek to what’s in the post this month and scroll down to subscribe.
We’ve long been admirers of Hello!Lucky. This three-person strong team in San Franciso has been producing letterpress cards and stationery for over a decade and they continue to delight with their pun-filled designs. When we came across their ‘What’s Up Dog’ design, we were taken with the simple and vintage illustration, and two-tone colour palette – we knew we had to feature it.
We knew we’d found something special when we came across Pompadour Press. It was finding one of their designs on of our regular stationery hauls, that led us to discover these sweet-smelling designs. We’re big fans of doughnuts here at CardNest, so we opted for a pink frosted doughnut, as well as chocolate sprinkles, letting subscribers pick which one they’d like in your August pack. Amazing, right? Once subscribed, you can let us know which design takes your fancy here.
Wrap Magazine X Elliot Kruszynski
Wrap Magazine‘s line of greetings cards and their collaborations with their pool of tip-top artists spell some pretty amazing designs. This month we’re featuring Elliot Kruszynski‘s ‘Yey’ birthday cake card, a firm favourite here at the studio. It’ll be sure to raise a smile on the recipient’s face when they find this little guy.
August’s cards will be in the post at the end of the month, and the cut-off is midnight 31st August (GMT). Subscribe from £7.50/month here, and be sure to use the coupon code ‘NEWSLETTER’ for 50% off your first delivery.
