Screen printing is the process of pressing ink through a stenciled mesh screen, leaving behind a beautiful design or pattern. Although it seems simple, the process is quite detailed and requires expertise. A popular example of screen printing includes the work of Andy Warhol who popularized the technique back in the 1960s by mass-producing graphic style prints in bright colors.

Meet Barbara Raidl, a trained painter who fell in love with the art of screen printing and founder of Kinaloon. Barbara started Kinaloon in 2009 with the idea that greeting cards would become art: every image on every card is hand-drawn, inked on mylar, and then silk-screened by herself.

Just like her art, Barbara’s stationery designs come from her own life. Every flower design is inspired by the flowers in her backyard. Some of the other designs come from her friends’ love of birds. Or being impressed by the thousand origami cranes a friend and his wife made for their wedding.  

What makes Barbara’s silk-screened cards different from other cards is the visual training she received by studying painting. In fact, with more than a decade of formal training as a painter, Barbara even prints like a painter!
 
“The effects of this visual training are seen in the way I draw the images; the color combinations I choose; the desire to push my silk-screen medium to do more than silk-screen is expected to do; and the way I relate form and content, image and message, even if that message is the beauty of an object. An object is so beautiful that one would rather frame the card than send the card!” – Barbara.
