Pocket-sized art with more uses than you can wave a Bic at. Birthdays, thanks yous, Valentines or even Wednesdays, there’s always an occasion for a stunning card. From promotional weapon to distant friend-contactor, our cards are more versatile than Optimus Prime.
Cards are designed to suit the most common image ratio of 3:2, but any image size can be printed—we just leave a white border.
Inspired by the Beatles’ song “Octopus’s Garden,” written by Ringo Starr and included in the Beatles’ 1969 album “Abbey Road.”

I am a professional Japanese-to-English translator and an Etegami artist. Etegami is a traditional Japanese folk art that combines thoughtful words with simple images painted on washi paper.
as always, a beautifully handled image!
Thank you for your encouraging comments!

Yes, the octopus is a very smart animal. And fun to draw.
Love this! The color is great. Is the text done by hand or computer?
I’m glad you like it. Everything on this Etegami is done by hand, including the text.
