Christmas Skating Bear Greeting Card from Great Arrow Cards
This 4.25" x 5.5" greeting card is silk-screen printed by hand. It comes with a coordinating envelope.
This card features an image by Erik Drohman of Rancho Mirage, California. Printed by Great Arrow Graphics in Buffalo, New York.
Erik graduated from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco with a degree in illustration and a secondary focus on computer art and design. He has since held positions such as a graphic artist for a small newspaper, senior graphic designer for an upscale social expressions company, and creative director of the graphics department for a Bay Area company that designs and imports glassware, ceramics, and giftable items.
One day he noticed he was spending far more time building Excel documents than he was art. When the moment for change presented itself, he jumped on it! He quit the corporate world of upper management and transitioned back into being a full-time artist and designer, this time as a freelancer, on his terms. When not working, he spends his time traveling between Portland, Oregon and his home in California, taking advantage of the best weather wherever it happens to be. His days are now filled with art and playing dad to his two rambunctious labs.

Experience Great Arrow silkscreened cards – the bold hues and velvety feel of ink printed by hand, layered one color at a time. In 1984, Alan Friedman and Donna Massimo began making silkscreened cards for holidays and every day in a small studio in Buffalo, New York. 35 years and 7000 cards later, the tradition continues with the help of a crew of talented local artists working with wonderful designers from around the world.
In a shop, a Great Arrow card is unmistakable… an oasis of brilliant, luscious color. The greetings are simple (sometimes punny) to inspire the sender to say what they feel. We purchase FSC certified papers, use recycled materials wherever possible and print with U.S. made inks. In the end, it's love that makes our cards something worth sending and keeping. A Great Arrow hand silkscreened card is a hug that fits in an envelope.
