– Birth –
Why go for a
When, after months of anticipation your little miracle is born, you obviously want to announce this
to the world in a special way.
And nothing is more unique than a one of a kind work of art that tells
your personal story and visualises your new family.
I create a custom made papercut with an exceptional appearance to be used
in your birth announcements.
How does it work?
The process of creating your unique papercut is the same as with all my papercuts. (You can read more about how this works here) The papercut is made according to your wishes, so it will always tell YOUR story or the story of your little family.
After finishing the handcut papercut, this original piece can be used to make the custom birth announcements. I can help you with making the ready-to-print file or even arrange for the cards to be printed as well, as you’re usually pretty busy with different things in that first week (weeks)…
Many of my clients choose to use either a scan or photograph of the original papercut to edit and make printed cards.
Besides these options, it’s also possible to use the original handcut piece to make lasercut reproductions; this way you’ll get exact cut-out copies to be used as cards. Obviously this technique is a little more costly than the previous one.
With all options, I ship the original papercut to you after finishing, potentially with the printed / lasercut cards, to be used as an extraordinary piece of decoration in the nursery.
What are the cost?
Prices for a handcut papercut depend on the chosen size.
I recommend to have the papercut made 1,5 / 2 times larger than the eventual cards, to create a nice level of detail in the birth announcement card.
If you just need the papercut, not the cards, you can take a look at average prices for custom made papercuts.
To give you an idea of the price for a papercut with printed cards;
For about €450 you will get:
- 100 folded cards (10 x 15 cm, or 13 x 13 cm. if you prefer a square one)
- A custom made papercut design on all sides for a 13 x 13 cm folded card. So 2 papercuts of 17 x 34 cm to make the interior and exterior of the card.
- The papercut will be photographed to create beautiful natural cast shadows
- Professionally designed into a card according to your wishes regarding colour pallette, font etc.
- Printed on a luxury paper of your choice
- High quality envelopes
- And… The original hand cut papercut piece (which will make a beautiful artpiece for your nursery!)
If you would like a papercut design just on the front of the card, this would be about €355.
