Personalized Stationery Pictures Your Place
"We wanted personalized stationery for our farm that was different and distinctive. We couldn't be more pleased," says Arthur Burbrink, Edinburgh, Ind., who commissioned a local artist skilled in a specialized art form to do the job.
Artist Jonell Folsom, Colombus, Ind. specializes in drawing farm scenes and animals using an unusual procedure called pointillism - drawing with small strokes or dots in black ink to form a picture. She works from photographs sent in by farmers and ranchers to produce a flattering view of the farmstead.
"The advantage with the type of drawing she does is that you not only get a unique, personalized artform to hang in your home, but you can have it reproduced on stationery, business cards, or whatever papers you use in your farm business," says Burbrink.
Artist Folsom will help you select the one or two photos of your farm or ranch to use in making the drawing. "A drawing is more personal than a photograph and looks better because you can leave out any objects that detract from your farm or ranch," she explains.
Cost to get a 22 x 28 in. "pointillism" hand drawing of your farm or ranch, and a layout incorporating the drawing with your logo for use on stationery, is about $225. Folsom stresses that to get the job done right, she needs good communication with
the customer so send along your phone number. Here's what else you should do:
Send several photos of your farmstead, either from the exact view you want pictured, or from several angles, asking her to combine them into the most attractive portrait. She'll make the drawing, plus a layout, which you can take tq a local printer to have letterheads and business cards printed up.
