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 design. This fine line art is then scanned into a computer and coloured digitally. All our birthday cards are ethically printed on high quality recycled paper, and our envelopes are 100% recycled.

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