About

Gee, Thanks is a self-led project for the University of Illinois at Chicago's EPD course. It is a series of 6 limited edition thank you cards with hilariously, sarcastic notes written inside that contradict the initial "thank you". For all those times you received help from someone that was anything but, these cards express those feelings. 

Lewis Paper Company Warehouse

After interning at the Shedd Aquarium this past summer, I learned the importance of printing and paper choice - something that isn't stressed as much in a digital age. I chose to make thank you cards to experiment with choosing my own paper from a warehouse and using the paper as a color important to the design rather than just a background. This will help me further my own exploration in my final year of study. I am hoping that this experience will help me decide on the medium (print or digital) for my thesis project based on my findings.

Test prints and initial designs

Using my typographic skills, and some free art, I created an elegant set of thank you cards in Adobe Illustrator. I plan on using a Canon laser printer provided in the school's print shop to make them. I will feed my own paper into the printer, and after careful test prints, I will chose the best thickness to compliment the designs. 



All Artwork

My project provides various reward levels. You can receive a personalized email of my thanks for showing your support, a PDF of the cover art so you can print your own sarcastic words at home, or the full limited edition 6-set of thank you cards designed by myself including envelopes. 

Thank you. 

Risks and challenges

I will be using a laser printer to print the cards. The laser printer is in a shared lab, so there is a possibility that I will have to wait my turn to print depending on demand and availability. I also have to go to a warehouse to pick up the paper supply. There is only one paper warehouse close enough, and the stock varies. In the case that the paper needed is out of supply, I will request for the warehouse to order more which takes around 3 days for arrival. If it is absolutely impossible for the warehouse to order a specific paper, I will order directly from the paper brand's website (Neenahpaper.com).
