We Publish Beautiful Australian Art Cards
From an idyllic rural setting in the historic Central Victorian Goldfields, we distribute an unique and colourful range of beautiful, finest quality Original Australian Art Cards, 'Little Gems' Square Note Cards, 'Jewels' Gift Cards, glossy Art Bookmarks and Fine Art Prints.
Our creative and passionate production team design and print products featuring a wide variety of original Australian art, generously offered to us by many talented artists and regional art galleries.
Products are designed and ethically manufactured to the highest standards, and showcase a wide variety of themes and artistic styles. Which over many years have become well known – and are sought after for their quality, variety and affordability.
Most importantly, sales of our uniquely Australian products directly benefit the many generous artists and galleries involved in our innovative co-operative art publishing venture.
Australian Art & Images was started in 1991 by Jenifer Simmonds, with the specific aim of publishing and distributing an unique range of finest quality Australian Art Cards to showcase the original work of many leading contemporary Australian artists.
With the launch of Art Publishing in 2000, this concept was expanded to enable us to work in close collaboration with Australian artists and major regional art galleries. To assist them self-publish their work as finest quality Art Cards, Art Prints, Bookmarks and other art-related products.
We are proud to be a longtime member of our peak industry body, the Australian Gift & Homewares Association.
Since we commenced publishing original Australian art in 1991, the business has outgrown six warehouses. Until at the end of 2007 we finally moved into our own purpose-built warehouse on the Wesley Hill Business Park in Castlemaine.
The warehouse includes a white-walled, light-filled packing room Art Gallery, which is decorated with a colourful collection of paintings – including original artwork for some of our most popular cards.
We welcome trade buyers to visit the warehouse by appointment.
Self-Publish Your Own Artwork as Art Cards
We also design and publish similar art-related products for artists, regional galleries, and for other card distributors.
And would be delighted to show you how easily and cost-effectively we can turn your original artwork into beautiful Art Cards for your sole and exclusive distribution.
