Luxe Cards Marry ‘Rich’ Design and Stock

Michael Osborne was asked to create heart imagery for’s Luxe Card product promotion. The results reflect his signature style—bright, cheerful, fun and inventive. Fifty unique designs for card backs were printed in CMYK digitally on stock that is as rich and unique as the designs—triple the thickness and weight of most ordinary cards with a rich seam of color within the layers of paper.
