Illuminate

Express your affection to those around you by sending an illustrated card each month!

A new illustration every month

When you subscribe, you will receive a card with the new illustration of the month every month, as well as an enveloppe and the illustration as a phone wallpaper.

Make someone's day!

Is your mailbox full of bills and advertisements too? Take the challenge and make someone’s day by surprising them with a card! The encouraging words written can be appreciated for years.  Writing letters can even make you happier. You can send them to a friend, a co-worker, Aunt Bertie, or whoever the illustration reminds you of!

How it works

Subscription

You can subscribe at any time and you will receive a card from the following month. For example, you have to subscribe before January 1st to get the card with the illustration of January. After two months of subscription, you can cancel it at any time on your account page.

Payment

When ordering, you will be asked to make the first month’s payment directly (credit cards only). Subsequent payments will be automatic, every month on that date. You can update the payment information on your account at any time after you have ordered the subscription.

Package

The package with the card and envelope will be sent between the first and third week of the month.

The cards are printed in Switzerland at printcesse.ch on 330g/m2 paper, the classic thickness of a postcard. Glossy on the outside, writable on the inside. Folded format: A5 (148,5 x 210 mm), opened: A5 (297 x 210 mm).

The printing of the cards is environmentally friendly. You can recycle (or reuse) all the packaging, which is also recyclable! To avoid plastic, I assume the risk of not fully protecting the package from the weather. If your order is damaged, please write to me and I will send you a new package immediately.

Why «Illuminate»?

The purpose of this project is to spread light, both through the illustrations and through the words that people receive each month thanks to the subscribers. I am convinced that a card can make a difference in someone’s life.

Faith & illustration

I believe that God speaks to us and that he can do so through creativity… I like to try to find what images are on his heart and share them. It is through this process that I create the illustrations on the cards. However, anyone of any religion or belief can of course participate in this project!

The name is inspired by the following Bible verses in Matthew 5:15-16:

… Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

FAQ

Just order the subscription as usual and enter the name and address of the person concerned in the “Ship to a different address?” part of the billing details. The person will then receive the content of the subscription every month that you will pay for.

If you want to offer a subscription to several people, you will have to place several orders in order to be able to enter the right delivery address each time.

After two months of subscription, you can choose at any time to cancel it on your account page in the “subscription” tab.

During the validation of the order, you will be invited to create an account. This will allow you to update your payment information, cancel a subscription or access your download files. To log in, you need to enter your username and password on the my account page.

Unfortunately, I am not able to offer a single payment for 6 months, because of the shipping calculations that are not done properly. If it’s the lack of simplicity that bothers you, you should know that once the subscription order is placed, the following payments will be made automatically. So you won’t have to log in every month to pay.
