Spreading the beauty of Mother Nature one card at a time

A year after my first trip to Costa Rica, I moved to Tamarindo and quickly discovered the magical sunset skies in contrast to the rainy season grey gloom during my first trip. Before long, I was chasing and photographing Costa Rican sunsets. My images inspired me to do something about the existing lackluster stock-image Costa Rican postcards. Thirty-something designs later, I now make my own line of postcards, notecards & mini cards printed on 100% recycled paper, called Samba to the Sea Designs.

I hand select the best shots from my photographs and then add whimsical quotes to create beautiful and unique postcards and notecards. These gems are printed on 100% recycled paper; even the envelopes for the notecards and mini cards are made out of recycled kraft paper/atlas pages. The notecard also doubles as a postcard as the inside cover of the card is printed with my postcard design. Just cut the card at the fold and re-send the photograph to someone special.
