Kids' Custom Cards - Info




LIMITED-TIME OFFER

Turn your child's unique artwork into one-of-a-kind card sets!

In addition to giving your kiddo the thrill of seeing their artwork turned into beautiful cards, these sets would make memorable holiday cards, great stocking stuffers, or provide an engaging introduction to the gesture of card giving. 



HOW IT WORKS

10 openings for Custom Card projects are available for purchase.

Book your spot by purchasing this listing on Saturday, November 13th.

After you purchase to book your spot, we'll reach out via email to walk you through the design process from start to finish. 


You'll provide:
1. Your child's original artwork
You can mail us the actual artwork and we'll do a high-quality scan and mail the artwork back to you. You can also take a high-res photo and email that to us.

2. A photo of your child (optional)
If you choose, the back of the card can feature a "This card was created by" blurb, with a photo and short description celebrating your budding artist!


We'll provide:
1. Design guidance and suggestions, as needed

2. A digital mockup of the custom card designs, emailed to you, so you'll know exactly what the final product will look like 

3. Any changes to the digital mockup that you'd like to see before the project is sent to print

4. Clear, timely, and helpful communication throughout the process


Once the digital mockup has your "Looks great! Print it!", we'll invoice you for the number of cards you'd like to print. (Minimum order is 24 cards.)
When your invoice has been paid, we'll print your order, quality check each piece, and ship you your one-of-a-kind cards!




THIS IS FOR YOU IF:

... you think it would be a blast to send out unique and personalized cards. Cards featuring your kiddo's creativity will stand out and be a joy for others to receive in the mail!

... you know a parent or grandparent who would love to discover a set of custom cards in their stocking on Christmas morning!

... you want to introduce your child to the beautiful gesture of card giving in a fun way. Imagine how much pride they'll feel sending a message to a loved one in a card with their artwork on it!

FAQ

Q: What dimensions should my child's artwork be?

A: To ensure that we can move the design process along smoothly, we recommend using artwork that your child has already created.

A: No rush! You can use artwork that your child has already created or they can create something new.
