Making cards helps you get into the Christmas spirit!
Receiving a handmade card makes Christmas even more special! It is a fun activity for the holidays and creating something especially for family and friends makes it that much more meaningful. If you’d like to use printmaking to make a series of cards we have tools and materials for making linocut prints and silkscreen prints. Or you can of course draw or paint your cards as individual works of art or scan one of your paintings and use our quality inkjet papers to make digital cards using your own artwork.
Create cards using Lino Print
Linocut is a simple, inexpensive and fun way of making your own cards that can also double up as beautiful limited edition artworks! Lino-printing is a wonderfully effective and easy way to try printmaking in your home or studio.
If you haven’t tried it before you might be surprised at the quality of the outcome.
We have a great linocut printmaking tutorial here in this earlier blog article.
Don’t forget that if you use text it will need to be drawn on your lino block backwards, to print right-reading!

The Brilliant Image at the Top
We had a competition on Twitter last month asking printmakers to help us with an image that would encourage readers to linoprint their own Christmas cards this year. The winner with a great image and great cards shown above was Lizzie Mabley. Read more about the winner and runners-up in this earlier blog post.
