In the early 2000’s the music and art style, synthwave, was inspired by many 1980s films, video games, and cartoons. The art features neon colours, night views of cities and landscapes, cars and chrome.

The synthwave range of birthday cards was designed by stuARTconcepts based on these ideas. The birthday cards are suitable for boys but many girls will also like them. Give it to your son, brother, grandson, nephew or friend.

Make your birthday card unique by editing the name on the front, adding a personalised message inside and choosing your envelope colour. Available in A6, large A5 or very large A4 sizes. To purchase any of these cards or see all the details click on the links below.

My unframed artwork can be purchased in 2 forms so which should you buy – a physical print or a digital file?

Physical prints are printed to museum grade on Canson 270gsm premium satin photographic paper. The ink used is Epson archival quality which gives exceptional vibrant colours and dense blacks. My printer is an Epson SureColour P800 which allows me to print up to metric A2 size or Imperial 16″ x 20″. For larger sizes, buy a digital file and print locally.

To protect your print from damage during shipping prints are enclosed in a clear cellophane sleeve. Smaller sizes are sandwiched flat between 2 layers of recycled cardboard. The larger prints are rolled into a cardboard postage tube.

The selection of physical prints is here.

Digital files allow you to print at home or at a local print shop to your own size. The purchase includes 5 digital files which can be scaled down to allow for different proportions, both in metric and imperial sizes.

Printable download files are an easy affordable cost way to personalise your home or office with my unique original designs. You are sent high resolution PDF files. I recommend printing on high quality paper or card. Matt or satin finished papers or card give the best results for my art.

The selection of digital prints are available here.

New printer = better cards

Printing of my greeting cards has developed a lot since I first began making them in 2014.

My first printer was a Canon multifunction colour laser printer. This had severe limitations on the card thickness as it rolled the card when printing. It also often jammed which meant a lot of waste and frustration. To get the best results I had to print on photo paper and glue that to a 250gsm base card.

Next I upgraded to an Epson Artisan 1430 inkjet printer. I chose this printer for the A3 size capability along with archival quality printing. I still had to print the card image on photographic paper and glue it to the base card which could be 300gsm thickness.

Now I have upgraded again to an Epson Surecolor P800 inkjet printer. I chose this printer so I can print on very thick card and up to A2 size. NO MORE GLUING! I can now print on both sides of thick card with high quality images. After testing many papers, I’ve chosen Canson Rag Photographique as the media for my cards. This ultra smooth, pure white card is 310gsm 100% rag. This media exceeds museum standards reproducing exceptional vibrant colours which feature in many of my greeting card designs.

I’m extremely happy with the look and feel of the cards from this new printer. I hope you are too. Visit the shop to select and personalise your card. There are options to edit the name on the front, add a message inside, and choose your envelope colour. You can also select the card size up to A4! That makes every card I make unique.

Bold red white and blue typography is the feature of this range of happy birthday cards. A combination of lines circles and solid colours combine to create the numbers. The strong colour in red, white and blue, makes this collection of happy birthday cards suitable for someone very patriotic living in Australia, USA, UK, France, Russia, Thailand, and many more. Do they support a team whose colours are red, white and blue? The greeting card can be for man woman male female mum, dad, any relation such as aunt and uncle, grandma, grandpa, or friend.
