Klinger Creative will be vending on October 20th at Fremont Park in Midtown Sacramento (corner of 16th+Q streets). I will have my new notepads, holiday cards, and an assortment of greeting cards including designs so new that they aren’t on my website yet. Please come down and stock up! The event runs from 11a-5p. This is a great time to get ahead on your holiday shopping and a really fun, FREE family friendly event open to everyone.
Another brand new greeting card for 2018! Squirrels can be very pesky. They hide nuts in your garden. They dig up seedlings. They chatter loudly while you try to enjoy your patio. But they are kind of cute and very crafty.
As always this card is designed in California and printed in the USA on 100% recycled paper.
Brand new for 2018 is this adorable penguins card. It features a parent and baby penguin and I’m pretty smitten with it. This card is available in singles and sets of 10. There’s no text on it, so it’s perfect for your own holiday message. Heck you could even use it as a thank you card, notecard, new baby welcome card, etc. Printed in the USA on 100% recycled card stock.
For you fellow list-makers out there, I’ve got something just for you. I have two new notepads in the shop. One is blank featuring pansies on a light blue-green background and the other is a to do list with lines and check boxes to help keep you on task. Both are only $7.99 and are shipping now!
WOW! My friend Chris Cacciatore’s NEW game Nebs ‘n Debs is 475% funded on Kickstarter! His campaign ends in 36 hours, so if you’re interested, donate soon. I’m helping him with the design work on this project including the box and manual for the game.
As I kid I grew up with a Super Nintendo that I loved and spent countless hours playing Super Mario World (the music will forever be etched into my brain), Wario Woods, and we even had a Wayne’s World SNES game. Who would have thought that in 2018 I would be designing a box and manual for an NES game?! I love fun projects like this.
For the last week of August I'm offering free shipping in the shop with the code FREESHIP18.
Grab some thank you cards, birthday cards, or even get ahead on your holiday card mailing.
Hurry, ends August 31st!
My longtime friend Chris Cacciatore of Dullahan Software launched his Kickstarter campaign this morning to raise $5,000 to fund his game Nebs 'n Debs that he's been working on for the past several years. He came in 2nd in the 2016 NESDEV competition, and since then has been refining and developing it into a fully playable game. It's available to play digitally with an NES emulator or you can get a real-deal NES cartridge if you still have your original Nintendo.
I've been assisting with the design of the box and other elements, but the original illustration was created by the incredibly talented Kaela Camille Agustin. Check out her wonderful work on her website.
Go support this Kickstarter campaign and/or share with your friends!
One of the most requests I get is for dog greeting cards. Rejoice dog lovers, they are here. Four illustrated dog greeting cards to be exact. Here's the first one featuring two sweet yellow labs. This card is colorful and bold and comes in singles and sets. Available now in the shop.
This was a dream project made extra special with specialty printing. This custom gala invitation for the New Conservatory Theatre Center in San Francisco utilizes red foil to stand out and (literally) shine! The whole set features an invitation, RSVP card, envelopes and web and print graphics.
Printing techniques like foil stamping makes a pieces like this invitation stand out, increases user interaction (how can you pass up the beautiful shine?), and makes it a more effective marketing piece. The foil stamp pairs well with this invitation since it enforces the glamorous aesthetic of the design and professional photograph on the front.
