Christmas Cards

I know I’m not the only one who pulls out my collection of cards from years past, every year when we decorate for the holidays. It’s such a beautiful way to remember all the special people in your life, past and present!

When I create a custom Christmas card, I want to capture not only your pretty faces, but your personality and your heart, so that you can share it with the people you love. Any of my designs from years past are available (with a discounted design fee), but creating custom cards for you is my passion!

Please allow a turnaround time of 2-4 weeks for the finished product. The last day for guaranteed Christmas delivery is Monday, December 7, 2011. If you are running behind, please contact me. I will do my very best to work with you.

Christmas Card Rewind, part 3

This ornate shaped card is by far one of our most popular luxe shapes, and it’s one of my favorites! (You can still see some of the guidelines, but you get the idea as to how it turns out)! Kate Gavos of Kate Gavos Photography took these photos as well.

 

    

 

This is by far not all of the Christmas cards we did this past season, but I think it’s time to move on! I try to keep the facebook page pretty current, as far as galleries go, but remember, all of these cards were custom! So the client sent in their pictures along with any ideas (if they had any), and we went from there!

Look at these sweet faces! Something fun to remember for those of you who have new babies near Christmas and don’t want to have the expense of Birth Announcements and Christmas cards, is that you can combine your announcement, like we did in the next to last card. We also did a combination of a moving announcement with the scalloped card!

The scalloped shaped card is a favorite of mine, and always turns out so sweet! It is one of the luxe shape options!

 

    

    

    

    

The photos in the last two cards were taken by my friend Kate of Kate Gavos Photography.

 

Christmas Card Season Rewind, part 1

Wow. What an amazing card season we had this (past) year! It is always such a whirlwind and gets pretty hectic around here, but the outcome is SO worth it! I refrain from posting and/or blogging (well, let’s be honest, I didn’t blog much in all of 2011) about the Christmas cards we are designing until after Christmas, because I certainly don’t want to spoil any surprises! So let’s get down to it! I am going to try to play catch up, by posting some of the designs we did this season! I wish I could take the time to tell you all about these sweet families, who are beyond good to me, but I think that would take much, much, too long.

So let’s get down to it! Here are a few to start with! Let’s spread a little JOY…

    

    

    

    

 

 

 

 

Holiday Special with Kate Gavos Photography

 

 

holidays are coming, holidays are coming

I’m not gonna lie, I am thrilled that Halloween is over. It’s kind of a stressful holiday, minus the plus of lots of good food + family. Well, there are the smarties, but other than that, it’s kind of a hassle. I will say though, that my 17 month-old made a darn cute Chris Farley.

Okay, onto the purpose of this post – Christmas cards! Since Halloween is over, that means Thanksgiving is just around the corner! If you like to send out fall or Thanksgiving cards, there’s still time, but this post is all about Christmas cards.

My goal is to come up with a few templates. I would love to have a lot however, my busy little boy only leaves me so much time to work, and we already are getting lots of custom orders! I love doing custom orders. My hope is that when you get your final print you will have exactly what you pictured in your head, or better.

How does it work? 
*send me your pictures – if you have a favorite color combination, style, phrasing, etc that you’d like to use, include that – all of this put together will by my inspiration
*paper options at no additional cost (smooth, linen, pearl and watercolor)
*white envelopes included
*you will receive an email proof, and we can then make changes if you’d like – no limits here – I want you to love your final product

What does it cost?
*there is a $40 custom design fee for all cards to cover expense + time it takes to make it perfect
*cost of printing will vary on the size of your card (5×5, 5×7, 4×8, 5.5×8.5), the design (flat, folded, or accordion), and whether or not you choose some of our unique specialty options (circle, ornament card, scalloped edges, rounded corners, etc) – please feel free to email and ask for a quote!

What is the quality?
Excellent. I outsource my printing to a professional company that does an amazing job.

…now, hurry-hurry…
…there’s an early bird sale…
