Ghost Academy makes the sweetest goods with relatable messages.
Ghost Academy cards are printed using the centuries old technique of block printing. Each of their cards begins life as an original illustration painstakingly carved into a hard block of linoleum. The carvings are then hand inked and relief printed one by one in a sunny California studio. Block printed cards have saturated colors and a fun texture since the ink sits right on top of the card. each print is unique, so yours will have slight variations from the picture.
Each card is blank on the inside, and measures 4.25"x5.5".
Meet the Makers:
Megan is the illustrator behind most of the cards. She grew up thinking she wanting to be an illustrator of children's books and never lost her love for the childlike wonder of simple, silly, and lovely illustrations. She loves strong minimal lines and daydreaming about how funny the little creatures she draws would look if they actually tried to move through a three dimensional world. Her influences include sanrio, hugh lofting, gfunk, etc.
Matthew started out as ghost academy's biggest fan and supporter back when we were a one-Megan operation, and he eventually left his day job to join Ghost Academy's production department. He's a lean mean block printing machine but easily distracted by the internet, the cats, and what record he's going to put on next in the studio.
Maria is a powerhouse printer and puts up with all of the Ghost Academy shenanigans. There are few cards the company puts out that don't pass through her hands. Ghost Academy had a 1000% increase in crazy bear cards after she joined because they're her favorites and Megan and Matthew like to make her happy.
