Create Professional Art Print Cards @ Del Ray Artisans
Jun 30 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Art Print Cards by Judy LynnDo you want to make greeting cards with prints of your original art? Your art print cards are an excellent way to give people a taste of your work and give them ways to contact you. Gone are the days when we needed to print photos on cardstock. A good photo printer is pricey. Now we can create professional art print cards using online services. These services are affordable and produce high quality products. In this workshop, we will review the process for creating good photos and online print services options. We will try out different ways to professionally package your cards, either for gifts, sale, thank you notes, and more. You’ll leave with sample packaged cards, templates, and how-to notes for future reference.

Optional: Bring your laptop and jpg photo files of your art – please have at least basic skills using the internet. Photo editing skills are a plus. A tech savvy beginning artist would benefit from this workshop.

Class size 4-8 participants.  Price is $55 for DRA members and $65 for non-members, plus $12 supply fee.
