Greeting Cards and Postcards printing

Putting the art into printing

Mockingbird was founded by artists, with an aim to provide a trustworthy and high-level service for artists. We understand that the process of reproducing artwork into greetings cards can be daunting, and potentially stressful, so we offer a very specialist service to ensure great results every time.

Every artist is in a different place when they decide to use us for card printing. Some have ready-to-print files that require minimal effort on our part; others have a masterpiece on canvas, but limited computer skills. We are in a position to ensure that everyone, regardless of situation, receives greetings cards of immense quality for a reasonable price. 

 Don’t hesitate to email/call if you have any other queries or require further clarification.

We look forward to working with you! 

For Customers with Printable Card Files

If you can provide print-ready PDFs, your only costs will be the numbers that are next to the card sizes in the above grid. We will review the files at no extra charge, and notify you if any changes need to be made. We also offer an editing service at a rate of £20 per hour, if there are issues that need resolving.

Have digital images, but no print file?

To create a bespoke template for your designs, we charge a one-off fee of £10 per card size. Using your ideas and suggestions, this includes picking a font for the backs, arranging the relevant image boxes, and making sure the print-files are mistake-proof. After this is done, further art-working will simply be a case of changing the images and, if necessary, the wording on the back. This is charged at a rate of £20 per hour. To give you an idea as to what this could end up costing, we can typically artwork around 20 different cards, from an existing template, in one hour.

Don’t have digital files to send us?

If you require scanning/photography to create the images for your cards, there will be an additional charge that you can check in our section Artwork Reproduction
