Hot Off the Press: Julie Ann Art, The Brush Guard and More

January 15, 2014

“Cute” is a term that makes some business marketers cringe, but in the appropriate situation targeted at the right market, cute design totally works. This week’s collection of PsPrint customers includes a number of cute printing jobs.

  • Julie Ann Art took a crude saying and turned it into a whimsical notepad.
  • The Off-Road Vixens business card may include a cartoon woman, but she looks tough!
  • The Brush Guard’s makeup-brush products fight gross “Ickie” germs, and its Ickie Stickie sticker labels make for adorable print marketing.

Below are more examples of cute printing, including comics-inspired and, of course, babies. For more design inspiration, check out last week’s “Hot Off the Press.”

Hi There,

I was wondering if there was a way to submit some products for a post. I design greeting cards and I have a new range for Valentines Day and Chinese New Year. I am trying to build on sharing my etsy shop and increase my sales, I was wondering if there was a way we could work together.

The greeting cards are all homemade and have a handmade aesthetic about them. Each illustration is designed for some pun! The cards are a way to bring back an element of a personal touch in today's digitally dominated world. All cards are blank inside to encourage people to write as opposed to text or type.

A selection of my cards and notepads are stocked at the WOAW Store, 11 Gough St and Walk On Water, K11 Art Mall, Hong Kong.

Please find below a link to my cards.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Meg, thanks for your comment! I'll see if there is a way we might work together - perhaps an interview? Great work, too - I like the "you were worth the hangover" card.
