Postcards and Posters
 Here's a random selection of my postcards, all printed by the excellent Postcard Company ( Graham & Sons Printers) of Omagh, Northern Ireland. Email them for a brochure & free samples.

You too could have an original postcard designed by me, lots cheaper than you think. This is the deal: 1000 postcards cost, to print, £129.25 including VAT & postage. They are top quality 6" x 4" laminated (shiny) cards, with whatever blurb you want on the back. My fee is £200 plus 100 cards. This includes the original of the artwork ( approx A3 size) AND the copyright - so you can do what ever you like with the image, make it into teatowels or beermats or wallpaper. A deal so good it's slightly insane. Please email or phone me to discuss. I can also set photos into interesting backgrounds with stylish lettering etc (for a much smaller fee) and generally make your postcard into one that 's outstanding, so people want to keep it and stick it on the fridge for all to see.

 


The pair to the cider label on the front page. Both are scrumptious.
I enjoy designing this sort of thing, for small-scale agricultural sort of people,
so don't be shy to ask.

 Four new postcards starring The Peasant Evolution Producers' Co-operative based at beautiful Fivepenny Farm, Wootton Fitzpaine, Dorset are now available, pictures below, bottom of page. Persevere!

How can I paint the flavour of their jams? Their sausages? Their ineffable cider? (Not sure what "ineffable" means but try saying that after a pint of Tinker's Bubble Original ... )
