New York City

We love New York City.  The food, the theater, the opera, Central Park, and the architecture. I once ran into a pole walking on 5th Avenue because I was so enraptured by a building. These images are buildings worth falling down on the streets of NYC–at least for me.

I want to credit a good friend for help here. Joe is a life-long New Yorker and the best photographer I’ve ever known in real life. I start many of my drawings by isolating parts of my photographs and I don’t have many from NYC. Joe fed me some of his remarkable photos so I could finish this project. I hate to admit it, but only the Guggenheim card originated with one of my photos. Thanks Joe–I couldn’t have done the NYC collections without you.

In creating Starkey Cards, we  learned about business plans, business models, and mission statements. But the truth is that we focused on the paper. The images would not look like woodcut prints without rich and thick paper. 

In addition to the rich quality of the paper, we wanted our notecards to be American made and renewable and unique in shape and acid free. We found it.

  • The card stock, envelopes, and business cards are all American made and hail from California, the Carolinas, and Rhode Island.
  • The card stock is heavy.  It weighs 220 grams per square meter. That’s a lot.
  • All the paper is 100% renewable cotton. The business cards are made from old t-Shirts and that tickles me.
  • The notecards are square and not the usual rectangles. Each card is a 5.25 inch square.
  • The card stock is archival and acid free.  The notecards are done on museum quality paper that will last.  The images will endure. You could frame them.
