Papercuts for sale

I’ve decided to start selling papercuts to help fund a redesign of Philly Love Notes. The website needs to be more functional as a Philly resource, and to put it bluntly, it needs to look nicer. I don’t feel comfortable putting advertisements or sponsored posts on the blog, and I’m still not completely sold on Kickstarter. If you’ve been following me on Instagram, Twitter or the blog, you’ve seen the evolution of my papercuts, which I’ve decided to start selling.

Below are some examples of custom pieces. They are all hand cut, and therefore take many hours each (and have been priced accordingly). The maps and home portraits are completely customizable in relation to size, paper color, and location, but don’t come framed. I’ll be taking limited commissions at a time, so if you’re interested, send me an email at

I’m also working with NextFab to learn how to lasercut. Once I’ve gotten a hang of that, I’ll be making copies of the large Philly map made earlier this summer and some more detailed neighborhood maps. Having access to all the machines brings up tons of possibilities for Philly-centric things to make, so if you have suggestions of what you’d like to see, please let me know.
