CoVID19 – How to keep on celebrating

Saving people’s lives during the CoVID19 crisis means that we all need to socially isolate. No more birthday parties, wedding receptions or other celebratory gatherings for the duration of the crisis.

It is however important for us to maintain our social connections with family and friends. One way to do that is to send them a card. Not just any card. One that is special for them. stuartconcepts can help you as every card is unique by editing the name on the front, adding a personalised message inside and choosing your envelope colour. They are available in A6, large A5 or very large A4 sizes.

In these difficult times, someone may have done something for you and you’d like to show your appreciation. Thank you cards are a great way to express your feelings. You can get a blank card and write your message yourself or I can add your personalised message. The range of thank you cards is here.

Postal services are considered an essential service and most countries are endeavouring to ensure they operate during this period. Australia Post is confident they can maintain service throughout Australia with little disruption – thus 2 to 6 working days delivery still applies. Many overseas countries postal services are still operating, though there may be a delay in some. I’d recommend allowing at least 20 working days. At this time the United States and the United Kingdom are operating normally so allow at least 10 to 12 working days. You can check what the current situation for your country is here.

Visit the shop to find the right card for your occasion, type in the search box in the top left your key words. Alternatively browse using the icons for each section or the drop down tab. It is easy to personalise the card by writing the words in the personalisation boxes for me to edit and selecting the options for size and envelope colour.

Synthwave range of birthday cards

[masterslider id=”12″]

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.

Prints – physical print or digital file?

[masterslider id=”11″]

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

[masterslider id=”10″]

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.

Rainbow flowers

[masterslider id=”8″]

Rainbow flowers


Marriage is about love and commitment and it should be available to everyone. These rainbow flowers represent respect, dignity and love for all. Inspiration – Experiments with rotating and scaling shapes lead this beautiful radial pattern. This is a very popular design as a gay or lesbian wedding card. LGBT weddings are now widely accepted and legal in many countries and hopefully Australia will grant same sex marriage equality soon. What better way to celebrate this love than with beautiful flowers – Blooming married! They also look great on t-shirts and other apparel.

Bee

[masterslider id=”4″]

Ain’t I cute – Bee


An amorous bee poses and invites you to look how cute it is. When looking for bee pictures I found a similar bee pose by Barry from “Bee Movie.” It was the spark that generated this design. Invite your boyfriend or girlfriend to be your Valentine with a valentine card. A very romantic card for a lover, wife, husband to give to the special person in their life. Make the card personal by adding a romantic message inside.

Have fun with what you wear. The bee is available on t-shirts, dresses, hoodies and more.
