The Enlightened Hound

The Bark Side of Life

A collection of humorous cards for dog lovers

These amusing cards for people who love dogs are reproduced from original collage artwork. Using bold retro colours, the collages were created from vintage papers, recycled magazines and lettering cut from old rubber stamp catalogues - in the style of ransom notes!

As our loyal companions, dogs are masters at integrating themselves into our human world. These tongue-in-cheek cards let dogs take centre stage, where from a dog's eye view, they poke a little fun at some of the quirks and habits of 21st century life.

If you'd like to find out more about how these cards were designed, you can read more on my blog.

The cards are printed in the UK on a thick 300gsm matt card, using archival inks, with a recycled manila envelope. They are blank inside for your own personal message. Each one measures 128 x 179mm and is individually sealed in its own cellophane bag.

The cards arrived safely and are gorgeous as usual. I just want to say how much I love all your cards. Your website is always the first place that I look whenever I need a card
