How can I personalize my greeting cards on your site?
Our cards are easy to personalize online with any greeting and message you want. Simply start by selecting your preferred design. Then, you can easily choose one of our greetings or create your own personalized message. Choose from a wide variety of font styles, colors and sizes. Give your customized cards the finishing touches by adding your firmís logo. Choose from any of our gorgeous 12 pt. cardstock - white glossy, matte or natural. Then, select your envelopes-choose from white, red, natural or white with holiday foil (red, silver and gold).
Where does the artwork come from?
Much of the artwork on our cards comes from our owner, Sal Ventura, a renowned architectural painter. We also commission artists and photographers to supply us with a wide variety of artwork and images for our greeting cards. All cards measure 5" x 7" and are suitable for framing.
Can I customize greeting cards using my own artwork?
Absolutely! We will print any design on your cards (and envelopes, if you choose), including specialty fonts, signatures and other formatting not available on our website. We can also print your own card design or edit existing designs on the front of the cards. While we do not charge extra for logos, ink color selection and font customization, there is a nominal one-time setup fee of $50 per card and per envelope for customer-provided artwork or for editing the front of the cards.
If I create a customized greeting card one year, do I have to pay the customization fee again if I
reorder them in the future?
No! We keep all of your custom artwork on file. There is never a setup fee for using art that has been filed from a previous order.
How does my custom artwork need to be formatted before I upload it to your site?
Custom Artwork must fit within a 5x7" area with 1/2" margins. Place the return address as you would like for it to be positioned on a 7 1/4" x 5 1/4" envelope. We can match most CYMK and PMS colors. You can send camera-ready art or any graphic file (PDF files preferred). Convert text to curves and make sure images are at least 300 DPI.
