Postcards

Last year I printed promotional postcards to share at signings and with bookstores and contacts. I used the online company, Next Day Flyers. One of the folks at the company liked the cards so much, they wanted to do an interview about the book, my work, and why I chose Next Day Flyers! Check it out ā€”>

Next Day Flyers did a great job. I had not had anything printed for a while and settled on them based on rating and price.  Since I had plenty of time, turn-around was not an issue. It was important that the card felt like a traditional postcard to be saved and not like a throwaway advertisement. I did a little research on card weights, sizes, and finishes and found just what I needed in their inventory. I designed my cards in Photoshop and uploaded my art into their template. The template is straight-forward with layers, guidelines and font choices. The cards arrived on schedule.

  Iā€™m glad I did my research and the final product turned out perfect!

Oh, if you want a postcard, just send me an email. Be sure to let me know if you want it with a message or pristine in an envelope. 

The Story of Troubador Press: An Interview with Malcolm Whyte

I have mentioned before how the Larry Evans 3-Dimensional maze books in the 1970's started me drawing mazes when I was a kid. Check out this great 2013 interview with his publisher, Malcom Whyte of Troubador Press. Whyte discusses Evans, the other artists he worked with, and running an indie publishing house back in the day. It is a good read.
