We stopped taking commissioned orders for Raya cards this year because we thought this would be more fun to do!
Those of you born in the 80’s sure remember this cool little thing called Kalkitos, where they give you sheet of sticky material containing the elements, and they give you another sheet with the background for you to creatively ‘gores’ the elements on.
Well, our FREE D.I.Y kad raya works something like that! Only digitally, of course.
(This is the D.I.Y. kad raya that we want to give you. It has the moon, some stars, some kids, some ketupats and a lemang)
Included in the pack is an EPS file and a hi-res JPG file.
Okay, JPG you’re familiar with, but what is an EPS file?
EPS format is a vector format, which you can open in vector programs such as Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw. The beauty of vector format is that you can blow it up to any size, and the quality will not suffer. You can even print this on a billboard!
So included in the EPS file are all the elements you need to make your own Raya card. You can resize them, change their colors, rearrange them, the possibilities are only limited by your creativity.
Here are some samples of how you can play around with the elements provided in the set:
More fun than a standard Raya card, right? And what’s more fun is that we’re giving it to you for FREE! Offer lasts until end of Ramadhan. After that it won’t be free anymore, haha.

Go crazy, guys! You can send it to friends over email, or you can even send it to a printer for an old-school raya card, or print it yourself at home. Make sure you upload your creations to our Facebook page when you’re done and share the fun!

If you’re interested in more of the Stoodlerist’s vector stuff, you can purchase them at her iStockPhoto portfolio. She’ll be adding more stuff in time, to cover a broad range of topics. If you’re looking for an illustration for a particular subject and not find it there, drop us an email with your suggestion.
It’s a lot cheaper and faster than ordering a commissioned artwork!
