How to design for no envelopes!

How magazine has some great little promos by Strathmore in the December issue (between pages 32 and 33). BUT, aside from being a great ad for S., it is also a great idea for reducing waste in your illustration business stationery by removing the need for an envelope! Next time you design a thank-you note or stationery, try designing to not need an envelope, it’s as easy as:

  • create a template in Adobe Illustrator
  • place your illustration / design on it
  • print it out on a piece of 8.5 x 11 card paper
  • trim it down

And voila, you’re ready to write on your custom designed notecard. You’ve also reduced the waste of using an envelope…just be aware of using as much of the space as you can on each page!
