Licensing News: Teapot Art bound for Greeting Cards

Soon you'll be able to get a pot of tea at your favorite card and gift shop!

My playful illustration of Asian-inspired Teapots is making its way to greeting cards available in the new year.

I'm thrilled to be partnering with Design Design Inc., a trend-setting manufacturer and distributor of gift and stationery goods.

Teapots will be part of their popular 'green' line; They've got quite a commitment to making their products as environmentally friendly as possible.

I'm planning to give away some of these cards once they are in stores, so please stay tuned.

Holiday Ornaments and Other Greeting Cards On the Way

Wrapping up a busy month in the studio for greeting cards, with four designs to appear on upcoming cards for two different companies.

At this point I can't spill the beans on much else, but I can give a glimpse of one of the card illustrations, "Hanging Around the Holidays".

As soon as these and the other greeting cards are available, I'll be posting more info on where they can be found.

(Now back to colorful autumn things and we'll set aside the Christmas/Holiday stuff for a couple more months...)

Sneak Peek at Holiday Greeting Cards

Lots of excitement in the studio with the arrival of a big box of samples of the three holiday greeting cards I did with Groupe Pierre Belvédère (previously mentioned here). It's like Christmas in April around here!

Nice treat having silver foil and embossing on the front of the cards and having the design continue to the back side. Seen here is the "Skating" card.

The best part by far is that a portion of proceeds from cards sold in Canada go to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation!

They'll begin popping up in stores across North American and European in October, in boxes of 12 and as single cards, blank inside for adding personalized holiday greetings.

Thanks again to Pierre Belvédère for their vision and willingness to team up on this project.

Holiday Greeting Cards to Benefit Breast Cancer Foundation

I'm honored and pleased to mention that a trio of greeting cards featuring my playful winter designs and the familiar pink breast cancer awareness ribbon will be produced for next year's Christmas and winter holidays. 

Best of all, in the spirit of the season, ten percent of the proceeds from the card's sales will be contributed to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Montreal-based fine stationery distributor Groupe Pierre Belvédère is behind this effort.

Holiday Horns, featuring a tuba-playing snowman, and Winter Warm Up, pictured here, along with my Skating artwork (also seen on chocolate tins) were licensed for the cards, which are being handsomely produced with metallic foil and embossing and include the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation logo on the back. 

The cards will be available at card shops and larger retailers in North America and Europe and in Essence du Papier stores beginning in late 2010. I will mention specific outlets and links for purchasing the cards as they become known. 

It's always exciting to be part of the holiday gift-giving tradition and even more satisfying knowing the efforts of the Breast Cancer Foundation will benefit, even in a small way, from my designs! 

Thanks to Pierre Belvédère for their vision and willingness to team up on this project.
