Any 3d pop up card must have a designing concept. Which is subject of card, for which season or occasion, which symbol can be used and which message
All will be reflected by the destination market. Each market will define the last design, so we must understand about age, culture, country, sex, and trend of each market.
After all, we can start to chose which type of pop up card. 90 degree? 180 degree? or Just cutout design?
In VietNam, we are not a professional designer in pop up greeting cards or handmade craft, so we must try to study day by day, and we get home help from our partners around the world
Maybe in the future , we can teach the next generation about this art craft
Most of times, some stencil on internet can be suggest for degning
Most of time, we think that symbols of Christmas for greeting cards are snow man, santa, gift box, shoes, bells....
Infact, there are many other story which we can talk about Christmas. Some funny story about baby boy and baby girl in christmas season, some story about jesu, or just few simple message to your friend, your family.... can become good christmas symbols.
Now day, christmas season is not only for western people, but also for asian and african. Maybe some symbol will change from Santa, snowman to dragon, tiger as asian christmas symbol.... maybe in the future... I hope so...
Some times our designs can not sell because designs are not beauty, or designs are not good with market
I don't know exaclty answer. Infact, about 50% designs are not good in selling, so we must try to design more and more , and hope about good result
Eggs can become decoration items in some markets
Normaly, pop-up card only have one object inside. Now, after few years, we can make 4 buildings (and more) on one card.
By this success, we will designs some cards with lively scene to talk about some legend story
From 2004, pop-up card appeared in Viet Nam as a simple style of Origamic and Kirigami art. At that time, our company - SBcraft tried to distribute in only Viet Nam.
Normaly, biggest greeting card season is Christmas (around the world). But in fact, chirstmas is not biggest occation for greeting card. In France, new year occation is more important, same in Asia. In these few years, some countries in asia have bigger christmas, for young people.

When you open a greeting card, some simbol like "happy birthday" text or flowers will appear in 3D view. Pop up greeting cards will make you surprise.
Last year, I visited some craft manufactures in North of Viet Nam. Some of them are good, they follow request of some big brand like Ikea and try to do the best, but most of them are not good quality.
Normaly, we use good quality paper from Japan and France for cards because the quality is good.
