Why Postcards...?

Join the Postcard Club as a reminder to yourself to reach out to your loved ones throughout the year, no matter how far away they are!

Is there anything more wonderful than coming home from a long day at work, picking up your post and finding that is does not just contain bills and bad news, but also thoughtful regards from friends and family!

When was the last time you sent a postcard just for the pure hell of it? Not because you are on holiday, or a business trip, but because you genuinely want to reach out to someone! 

As an avid letter writer, I know the joys of receiving handwritten notes from far-off but close to the heart friends and family. Sometimes penning a long letter back can be a consuming task, but there's something refreshing about unleashing a few fond words on to the back of a postcard. So perhaps make it a regular habit to remind the friends who have moved away from you that you still think of them daily!

Why my art..?

After creating postcards in my last Kickstarter I found them to be the most enjoyable part of the process, and they were very popular with my supporters! Therefore I would love to continue translating my art into patterns and postcards, and decided to create the Postcard Club!

The whole idea is that not only will you support me to be able to keep illustrating through the year as well as getting my art flying across the world! But also you can bring some nonsensical, colourful joy to friends and family, and the workers of the international postal service!
Finally, my heart lies in comic creation, so I also want to try and get funded enough to start creating quarterly comics too, and hopefully by mid next year I should be able to launch a quarterly comic club too!

How it works...

If you sign up to become a Postcard Club Member you will receive three postcards with hand illustrated designs wing their way to you every quarter! The designs feature: one illustrated character card, one pattern design, and one quote with pattern. In your initial pack you will also receive a membership postcard and card!

Keep them as prints, send them onward to friends and family, or perhaps even send one along with a message to a hospice, or a children's hospital and reach out to your local community!

The packs will be sent out in January 2019, April 2019, July 2019, October 2019!

Sneak Peeks

If you're one of those people who hates surprises then, don't worry! If you support me anyway, I will be releasing sneak peeks of the year's postcard designs at intervals during the Kickstarter campaign!

January's Theme - Feel the Love

Send your friends and family letters of endearment, write to the love of your life, or play a little practical joke on a colleague or friend with a secret admirer postcard! But don't forget to send yourself some love too! 

March's Theme - Spring Had Better Sprung

A very natural, and blooming set of cards, jump into spring and send your elderly family members some joyous messages! Let them know they are still alive and hopping and the sun is coming back around!

July's Theme - Dinosaurs Are For Everyone!  

Dinosaurs. What else could you ask for?! Dinosaurs for the young, old and any gender! Appreciate them in all their shocking pink glory and send your thoughts, birthday messages or laments to all the age ranges.

October's Theme - Autumnal Magic

Commemorating my favourite season, with a sly joke for the adults among us, I have created an ode to autumn with all the colours of the season. Celebrate all the colours of this magical time of year with friends and family.

Unlock Bonuses

I also have two extra ideas I would love to include in your quarterly packs, but can only afford to add them if I meet specific targets. If we meet these targets these will be added to every Postcard Club Membership!

BONUS ONE - Unlocked at €600 funding

A free mini colouring in book, in line with that quarter's theme, this little book will be perfect to sneak into office meetings, pop in your bag to distract your kids with on long journeys, a lovely addition to birthday cards... the list is endless! Here's a little sample of January's book!

Get to €550 to unlock a sneak peek of the next bonus add on!

Risks and challenges

Hopefully I should be able to source all my postcards at the start of the year, so production is not an issue.

Obviously the postal systems in question may sometimes be unreliable so quarterly time frames may be extended.
