The Client: Vallarta Eats is a food tour company in Puerto Vallarta Mexico that shines because of its owner and tour guides and the amazing food available in Puerto Vallarta.
The Project: The owner wanted a Deluxe Box Collection to reward return guests. The collection features six designs and includes a preview sheet for the back of the box along with 12 cards & envelopes. The front of each card highlights a Vallarta Eats tour stop or a scenic spot in Puerto Vallarta. The back of each card features the the company logo.
The Process: The first step was taking the taco tour the owner wanted highlighted. Yum. I returned home and emailed card drafts until the balance between food tour stops and iconic images of Puerto Vallarta satisfied the owner. A tricky part of this assignment was to highlight parts of the tour without advertising specific venders.
The Highlight: The food tour was incredible and I’ve returned and taken the tour (and several others) over and over again.

In creating Starkey Cards, I learned about business plans, business models, and mission statements. But the truth is I focused on the paper. Rich, thick paper makes my images look like the woodcut prints I once designed.
I wanted our notecards to be American made and renewable and unique in shape and acid free.
- 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.
- The protective sheaths are biodegradable.
- SQUARE notecards are 5 & 1/4 x 5 & 1/4 inches.
- RECTANGLE notecards are 5 & 7/8 x 4 & 9/16 inches.
- 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.
