I like sending these along as wrapping paper. I like superficially mimicking ukiyo-e, for one, and also the idea of sending customers a part of the process beyond the end result.

The order was for twenty cards, so they were printed as a special numbered edition (I didn't have twenty Wyverns to begin with, so – slam). If you'd like to place your own request you can specify all kinds of things (color, yes envelopes, no envelopes, plate; we can even carve new plates), just so you know.
