Christmas Cards

So, a group of us 3rd year illustration students decided to create some Christmas cards to sell, in order to raise money for a stand at D&AD Newblood next year. There was also a group of students who held a bake sale selling all sorts of lovely baked goods, and managed to raise a good amount of money for D&AD!

We screen printed 5 Christmas card designs, one by each of us involved. 3 of the cards were 2 colour jobs, and 2 were single colour. It was a really fun project to work on as it was probably the first time we had been able to work as a group on something this year, and it also gave us the opportunity to get back into screen printing, which I hadn't done since first year, and others had never done.

I did a couple of quick designs for my card, but we opted to print the Santa one (below), which was a 2 colour print of black over red.


Head over to Kris Sale's blog post here, as he kindly took few snaps of us hard at work prinitng the cards!

  1. Hiya Dominique! These screen printed cards look -fantastic-! How did you get the awesome grainy texture on them?
    Do you have any of these cards left? Would love to have one for my wall :)

    Keep up the good work!
