Card to Art is the only greeting card that flips to become a matted work of fine art.
This print was limited to an edition of 250 and printed on one of the world’s finest printmaking papers – Somerset Velvet. Someset is made out of 100% cotton which is a completely renewable resource. Series 2 was hand printed on a 90-year-old press by Bennett Holzworth. Each card is individually numbered 1 through 250.
Card to Art is truly simple and truly original. The card appears to be a fairly normal, albeit beautiful, letterpress greeting card. Then, you notice that the back of the card has a rectangle die-cut into it. When the back is flipped to be the front of the card, it then becomes a mat for the art on the front of the card.There are two removable inserts where the giver of the card can pen their message. The cards are also created so they easily fit into most standard 5x7 frames.
