I have produced some simple designs of Christmas cards, using woodblocks that I designed and carved myself. All cards are hand printed by myself in small quantities, quietly made, no machines or electronic printing.

All are printed on 100% recycled Kraft card, and posted in Plastic Free packaging. Cards are placed in clear compostable bags - not plastic ones - so are environmentally friendly.

They are available from my Etsy shop, priced from £2 each, and in some cases available in packs of 5 of the same design. During the latter part of Nov & during Dec I am running a promotion of 10% if you buy 2 or more items.

I also have my clocks too, listed on this site, some of which are available via Etsy, others you may enquire about.

See my Etsy store for all current items for sale: www.etsy.com

Woodblocks and Printing

The woodblocks were hand carved, using simple woodcarving tools, into flat blocks which can then be printed in my printing press, using relief printing ink, and in this case, printed on to recycled Kraft card.
