Special and promotioal print  


We have worked with many clients to design, lay out and print a range of postcards, Graphic Words took this etching and hand coloured it ro create a historic postcard
for various applications.

We were commissioned by a client who wished to produce postcards and notelets of a
historic building on the edge of Tavistock. Our client had a copy of a nineteenth century black
and white bill of sale, and hoped we could transform the image to look more like a tinted
illustration of the building and estate.

Graphic Words transformed the image by adding carefully-selected semi-transparent colour
washes over the black and white original, to create the picture below, which was used on
postcards and notelets which we printed for our client.

Another commission involved the production of a set of four postcards, sold to raise funds for Tavistock town museum. We edited the images and helped to source alternatives where required, to create the four cards showing: Tavistock's Railway Viaducts; Historic Tavistock; Tavistock's Abbey Remains and scenes Around Tavistock.

Postcards can also be used promotionally at trade shows and exhibitions. The cards shown below were produced for Dartmoor Farmers
to promote their meatbox scheme.
