Holiday Card Design FAQs

For Holiday Card Sessions

A. For the card, there will be three steps before the final design is shipped off to the printers. Know that when I’m culling and editing the best images from our session, I’m keeping an intelligent and creative eye out for the images that will best translate with my holiday card templates. (Oh, and don’t worry about ending up with the same card as the Jones! I’m working with lots of templates so leave the overwhelmed-by-choices feelings to me!)

Step 1.

I will mock up three different card designs (scroll down to see example below) and present them to you. At the same time I’ll give you viewing access to the full gallery of images from our session.

Step 2.

Within 3-5 days from receiving the three “mock-ups” you’ll indicate your favorite which we’ll fine-tune after a meet up, call or detailed email you may send me listing any changes or additions you’d like to make. The mockups will indicate a range of design factors which we can tweak— be it the card shape, paper stock, the color, the message and the number of images. This is also when you’ll want to dictate a specific message that is printed on the card. Feel free to leave the copy writing to me if it’s not your thing. I can work up something short and sweet for you to approve in the final round. Meantime, start thinking about whether you want to do anything with the images you’re not using in your holiday card. Prints? Canvases? Framed prints for holiday gifts? Custom photo box with easel and mounted prints inside (my fave). You get a free digital file if you order more than 50 additional cards so start counting the names on your mailing list.

Step 3.

I will present you with an updated proof of your holiday card. You’ll have one final opportunity to approve or suggest changes before we ship to the printer. I will need to know whether you would like to order more than 50 cards at this time. Additional cards are $40 for a set of 25 and if you order more than 100 total (that’s including the first 50 that come with this session), you will receive one full resolution Digital file (with print release). Additional digital files may be purchased for $20 each.

Q. How will we choose holiday card designs?

Here’s an example of a card proof I did for a bride-to-be…

Q. Will I be able to purchase digital files from our Let’s Do Holiday Cards session?

A. Let’s Do Holiday Cards is a special package that includes a photo session and 50 premium custom designed cards. No digital files are included in the base package, however, if you order an additional 50 cards (@$40 per set of 25), you’ll receive one hi-resolution digital image from your gallery.
