Beginning with a pencil sketch before moving to pen, a method called crosshatching is used to create the depth and the tone you see in the final birthday or Christmas gift tag design. This fine line art is then scanned into a computer and coloured digitally. All our ethically made gift tags are sustainably printed on high quality recycled paper in Melbourne, Australia.

The Nonsense Maker’s unique gift tag designs are imagined from a fun and whimsical world where dreaming meets reality. Sometimes silly and sometimes sad, and inspired by etching techniques used by old time illustrators. While The Nonsense Maker’s art prints often have finer details, the gift tags and quirky greeting cards are an easy cheerful expression designed to bring a smile to your face.
