I started turning my photos into greeting cards about three years ago. I sold the cards at a local art gallery in Abiquiu, New Mexico. I had some modest success but eventually I began to dislike the format I was using. The paper was a simple mat and involved trimming each card to fit an envelope. The gallery eventually closed and I stopped using that format.
After some searching I found Museo Artist cards. They are precut and made of cotton without added distasteful chemicals. After some trial and error I figured out a technique that worked for me. I have been using their blank cards for two years now. They sell well at the local Zen center in Santa Fe.
If you start the slide show the first page is an introduction with detailed descriptions of the cards and paper.
As a Zen practitioner I tend toward putting in quotes that reflect my practice. Since I figured out how to place text inside a card if you see a card you like and want a different text I can do that. The small cards I left blank on the inside.
Not all photos work well on these cards; it's a selective and creative process. The size and composition has to be just right.
Posting these cards this way is something new for me. If you have any feedback or questions please feel free to contact me.
