Shaun Tan designs…
Merry-go-round reusable cards have x2 new designs available, both featuring beautiful artwork from Shaun Tan.
One of the most enjoyable things about Merrygoround has been the opportunity to contact some of our favourite Australian illustrators and have their work appear on the cards. It’s lovely to think that each image will go on to brighten the day of a new person as they receive it in the mail :)
The year kicked off with images from Sydney artist Catherine Nolan and Melbourne based GhostPatrol. We’ve had great feedback on both these cards with lots of people sending and receiving Catherine’s ‘Bird of Paradise’ and a couple of Ghostpatrol fans thrilled to hear that they can pick up a Merrygoround card featuring one of his images.
We’re always keen to hear about your favourite image makers especially if you think they would look good on the front of a Merrygoround card. Just drop us a line and let us know your suggestions.
How do they work?
It’s one of those “now-that-I’ve-seen-it-that-makes-total-sense” things.

Our reusable greeting cards simply have slits cut inside the card allowing it to hold your message on a separate slip of paper.
The person who you send the card to then has the option of replacing this slip of paper with their own and sending the card on with a new message.
Users can fill in a little heart-tree on the back to record how many greetings the card has carried : )
