Vote on Notecard Images - Get a Shop Discount & Enter into the Giveaway!

Hi Everyone!

I am in the process of launching my next business venture: the creation of greeting cards using my artwork. I've compiled a bunch of possibilities, but I need your help in deciding which make the cut. Here are 48 images to choose from. I know that's a lot to look at, but I wanted to include a diverse array of images. I will ultimately choose from 20 - 30 designs. Please let me know which images YOU would choose if you were picking out a notecard. Keep in mind who you might be shopping for and for what occasion. Some occasions might be very specific, such as holiday cards or for graduation, birthday, etc. Some might just be to say hello to a friend, or maybe you would buy the card for yourself just because you like it! Please write your choices in the comments section, 10 - 30 images would be helpful. You may write just the number of the image and/or the title I've given each image.

As a Thank-You, for anyone who leaves a comment I'm offering 15% off your total purchase in my Etsy shop, Sprout Head. Please leave your e-mail address if you're interested, or you can e-mail me directly with your e-mail address: good_old_fashioned_smell@hotmail.com so that I can send you the 15% Coupon Code. If you don't leave your e-mail, I'll assume you're just being helpful and don't want to take advantage of this offer. Also, everyone who leaves their e-mail address will automatically be entered into a Giveaway for a set of 12 of their favorite notecards. This won't happen until I get the notecards printed, which hopefully will be by the end of October. I'll probably make my decisions on notecard designs once I get at least 20 comments.

Thanks so much for your input!

  5. I love all your work, but I have a small print of your okra and really love that one, partly because my dad absolutely loved fried okra so much that he would grow way more that he could possibly eat each year and then freeze it so he could have it in the off season. The details in your work is amazing. You will do well with all. I look forward to seeing what you create next!

    on a quick glance...
    but it is hard to tell about all of the wonderful details with such tiny images.
    It is smart to have occasion cards included. As a shopper, I seem to send more sympathy-for-loss-of-pet-cards than anything...
    Whatever you do will be terrific.

  17. I wish I could zoom in on the images. Personally, I hate cards that are pre-printed with the occasion, or really with pretty much any words at all.

    My favorites, In the order in which they appear:
    2. Eggplant
    3. Cupcake
    4. Squash
    7. Radish
    10. Lemon
    14. Zoom
    15. Koi
    37. Rain Vine
    39. Train Bridge

    1. hey Jesse! how are you? i saw your brother recently on a visit to rochester. he has kids - WOW!
      sorry about the tiny images. you can see more in the Printmaking, Drawing & Painting, and Return Show sections of my website: http://aijungkim.com/section/119853.html
      I just didn't want to make this blog post too huge. i won't be adding any words to these cards, besides some info on the back of the card with my name, the title and medium of the artwork, and maybe a little comment on the artwork - not so sure if i should tell people what i was thinking about when i made the art or not. what do you think?
