KA Graphic Design (As Part of the #ShopSmall Blog Series)

This post is part of my #ShopSmall Blog Series

The Story Behind KA Graphic Design

I graduated in Graphic Comms in 2013 and have been doing mini projects on the side of my full time job in the Arts ever since; ranging from re-branding projects to gifts for weddings and birthdays. Now a selection of prints, greeting cards and personalised projects are available to order via Etsy: how exciting is that?!

Simply choose the design you like, choose your envelope colour and I’ll be posting out your order to you within the week!

If you would like the card altered in any way or personalised, just drop me a message as it may be possible to do a design to order meaning no one else will have the same design! Some of my Christmas or Birthday cards are currently available in Welsh or English, but if you provide the translation I’m happy to open this up to alternative languages.

Tour Round the Store

Before I start, let’s all just congratulate Kirsty, the owner of KA Design. Why? Because she is an #SBS WINNER! Obviously now you’re wondering what that is all about? Theo Paphitis hosts #SBS (Small Business Sunday) every week and 6 lucky winners are chosen each week and retweeted to his half a million followers! What a great boost that is. All winners are invited to an event to meet celeb guests, network and get their advice. Not only that but the privilege to associate their small business with #SBS is amazing! A HUGE well done Kirsty!

Now, on to the Etsy Shop

This is a very well stocked Etsy Shop with a huge amount of choice! So many brilliant cards and prints to choose from. There is literally something for any occasion that you would need a print or card for. Kirsty has clearly got a great imagination as there’s some fab things to buy that you wouldn’t even think about! I mean, the fact there’s a ‘Happy Hump Day‘ card is just awesome!

There are cards from only £1.95 which is just so affordable it’s untrue! You can also grab a print from only £8 which is super good value for such a high quality print. They look perfect in a bold coloured frame.

My Picks

Kirsty very kindly sent me a couple of great greetings cards and best of all, the Prosecco Print!! Yes, that’s right one that says ‘But First, Prosecco’. I think it would go perfectly next to a home made bar or in a kitchen. My package was delivered very quickly and I’m so pleased with the items. Really high quality, as you get with all small businesses, and this reflects the hard work that goes into each item.

I also love that there is a range of ‘Quote Cards‘ so if you are a fan of something in particular have a look and see if your card is here. Harry Potter fans, I can assure you that you won’t be let down!

Best of all, your personality and the person that you are is bought out by one of the items here!

The Little Touches

  • I loved the black and silver sparkly tissue paper Kirsty used to wrap the gift cards and print in. Always a nice touch when things are wrapped well.
  • Also included was a snazzy double sided KA Graphic Design Business Card and a double sided thank you business-sized card! I loved the quote on this one; ‘Fact Of The Day – You Are Bloody Lush’. See, this is how much a sale means to a small business!
  • Kirsty is very accommodating if you’d like a custom piece such as wedding invites, custom prints, branding or anything you might need… just drop her an email on kagraphicdesign@hotmail.com

Coming Soon

Kirsty is currently working on some wedding invites at the moment (bet these look so glam!) and will be working on new welsh language cards and Christmas cards soon!
