I was hoping to use cartoons I have on file from the last few years but have no idea how to present them properly .
I tend to use Procreate mostly these days having used Photoshop in the past (very basic knowledge of same)
If any of you could steer me in the right direction that would be fantastic. Maybe you know of some other cartoonist that might be able to help ?
Ages ago I wrote some tips for the Jester about getting in to the Greeting Card industry. I've trawled my archives and found it and have uploaded a screen shot to my Dropbox. You can download it via this link:

It should be quite readable (if not, give me a shout and I'll send you a hi-res pdf) I'll leave it up on my Dropbox for a week.
The advice in the article is based on my own experience of many years working in the Greeting Card business. Hope you find it useful!
I remember reading that article which is a great article .I have looked through my Jesters and couldn't find it .
Thanks for uploading it again .
I have saved a copy and it is perfectly readable.
I have the rough ideas for a range and will work at putting them together .
Is there a greeting card template that could be used with Procreate?
Again genuine thanks as you have helped me move forward in my quest to submit to greeting card companies .
Some companies will tell you what they want, often supplying the wording for the cards, leaving you to just provide an appropriate cartoon, but a lot of others like the complete idea done by the artist. (You can usually charge more for that) It's all very fluid really, which is one of the things I liked about Greeting card work, you often had the opportunity to just think random stuff up and sell it
I am unsure how best to submit my ideas but the article and advice from Rich is very helpful.
Thanks to both of ye for responding.
