The image below depicts a selection of cards created by one of our pet portrait diploma students for her course. Making your own cards, whether they are hand made, professionally printed or produced on your home computer and printer, is a great way to promote yourself and your work. You can provide details and text on the back with your website address to promote commissions or further purchases of your prints/cards / paintings etc. You can either give these as free promotional gifts, sell them at exhibitions, fêtes, fairs or even in your local shops and stores. Creating your own cards is a must for all up and coming artists whatever subjects you are painting or drawing.
