HOW ITS MADE
All of our designs start life as original concepts by our head designer Michelle. All designs and images on this site are copyright of Ta Muchly. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to feature our work.
Our papercut designs are all handdrawn and then edited using Procreate and Adobe Illustrator until we’re 100% happy with them. It usually takes many hours and many revisions until the design is perfect and we’re happy for them to be turned into a papercut. All of our papercuts are delicately cut from a single sheet of 100lbs/270gsm acid-free paper, one mistake or false cut can ruin the design, so we have to make sure there are no snags or areas of concern. Once we’re happy, the designs are then programmed into the machine and sent to cut. For some of our more intricate designs, certain elements are cut by hand to avoid tearing the paper. We then have to carefully pick each tiny cut out from the mat to reveal the finished design. It’s not a quick process, but it is completely worth it!
MAP ART PRINTS
All of our prints are original designs. We draw these by hand using an iPad Pro, to give the best quality digital print. We also make sure that these are produced as Limited Editions in batches of no more than 50 of each design. Each print is individually numbered and hand signed.
FOIL MAP PRINTS
Our foil maps are designed in a very similar way to the papercut city maps. Once we're happy with the design, they're then printed with a special ink, before having a layer of beautiful rose gold roil applied with heat. Our foil prints are limited edition, so they're also numbered and signed by hand to complete the process.
