About

Doodle Graphic Designs is a unique line of greeting cards designed to make you smile. Hilarious anecdotes are combined with vector based drawings to create beautifully designed, one-of-a-kind cards that stand out from the crowd.

Making someone smile is the best feeling in the world and these cards do just that. Drawing on my experience of being in a long distance relationship and realising how important the ‘little things’ are, inspired the ‘I love you more than’ and ‘I love even if you always’ collections, as a reminder of how amazing the people in my life are, regardless of where they are in the world. I think this is a message that will resonate with so many other people.

Scotland is an endless source of inspiration, and helps support my creativity. Whether I’m exploring the country by train, car or on foot, there is always something that sparks an idea, which I can then take back to my Edinburgh studio.

From the initial sketches to illustrating the vector graphics, I see the creative process right the way through. And of course, a big thank you has to go to Mr T (my better half) who’s always giving me ideas.

A little bit about me as the designer…

I spent four years studying a Fashion Degree, which helped me to realise that my passion really lies in designing, playing with colours, images and layouts. I not only enjoy it, but it’s great fun and so I want to take this a step further by designing my own line of greeting cards, and putting my spin on the messages, which will be largely humorous, with the odd touch of sentimentality.

Card 

  • Size: 140x140mm Square Folded Card 
  • Print: Matt 
  • Stock: 300gsm Bright White Recycled Card and Recycled Kraft 
  • Envelope: Recycled Kraft Envelope  

Packaging

  • Cellophane Bag

Develop the range to include wedding invitations and other bespoke stationery collections.

To give the whole project an overall more professional feel and give my poor laser printer a rest. Using a professional printer will allow me to upscale my current production to meet my ever increasing demand, while increasing quality control.

Helping me to vastly expand my current offering. My cards are in high-demand and I would like to build upon this and get my products out to as many different locations as possible. Your support will allow me to achieve the following:

  • Print off the first batch of cards - 50 designs - to produce a total of 2500 cards.
  • Have stock and resource to be able to set up my ecommerce website.
  • Sell to local gift shops across the UK.
  • Fulfill rewards to all of my supporters for your support. 

Thanks for your support, if you don't fancy being a backer please help me by spreading the word about my project. Word of mouth still does wonders.

Also a special thanks to Chiara Pannozzo, creative and talented writer who helped me with copy editing my campaign. Chiara runs a successful blog www.wineandolives.co.uk – for the foodies amongst you it’s worth checking out!

Risks and challenges

Project involves third party printer to delivery final printed cards and other materials are supplied by various companies. I see minimum risk as long as materials are delivered on-time and the quality of the printed cards are up to standard.

Currently I have designed over 25 cards, so I'm half way there. I am hoping to complete all designing by mid June in order to create a pick list for my backers. If I run behind I will notify you if this if this impacts on when rewards are due to be shipped.

Thanks for your continued support.
