Based in Keyhaven on the south coast of England (between the New Forest and the Solent) Tessa van Hasselt has been painting local scenes for many years. Inspired by her grandchildren, who are the subjects of many of her paintings, Tessa has published a charming series of images which are now available as greeting cards.
Nick Beresford-Davies paints a multitude of subjects in oil and acrylic. Living and working as a Graphic Designer in Lymington, painting for Nick is very much a pleasurable escape – so any cards sold on our website are a bonus!
The greeting cards are litho printed onto Trucard stock, a high quality card (made by Tallis Russell papermakers) which has a gloss coated outer surface and an uncoated inner surface, making it possible to write without smudging. The cards are all plain inside, ready for your own personal message.
All the cards are created from original acrylic or oil paintings, painted onto watercolour paper (for acrylics), stretched canvas or canvas board, textures which reproduce beautifully in print. The finished size of the greeting cards are either A6 (148mm x 105mm) or A5 (148mm x 210mm). They are supplied individually wrapped in a plastic sleeve with an envelope.
These unique greeting cards can be used as birthday cards, thankyou cards, mothers day cards, ‘sorry’ cards or just for you to say ‘hello’.
The Tessa van Hasselt greeting card range has been published by Hampshire based Tinstar Design Ltd.
