I’m finally caught up on Christmas Card stuff and am announcing packages and pricing for the 2010 customized Christmas cards… and this year I’m stepping up my game.  Prices have increased some but I assure you the products won’t even compare to last year… yeah, they’re that much better. I’m using a pro printing lab, which will provide you with a higher quality, acid free card stock (with multiple finishes to chose from), and an incredibly higher printing quality… plus envelopes will be included!  So although prices have gone up, you’re getting a ridiculously better product all around.  The prices are still very competitive with other customized, “boutique-style” card designers.  Here’s the breakdown:


This year I’ll be offering 5×7 flat cards (full color, 2 sided) in a variety of designs.  I’ve updated 7 of the Vintage LP Cover designs and will be making those available again this year, along with 3 other modern custom designs.  All 10 designs are the same price.


1. “New School” Designs 1-3: Each of the first 3 cards has a unique, modern look – these are not your everyday Christmas card.  Includes one family photo on each side (except for design #2 which has 3 photos on the reverse side), and a space for a handwritten message is included in the layout. Click the images below for a larger view of sample designs.

2. “Vintage LP Cover” Designs 1-7: These cards are designed with the classic look of an old jazz record collection.  These designs allow for one family picture on the front and up to 4 smaller photos on the reverse side.  You’ll also have the option of including autographs on the front design as seen in some of the samples below.  Space for a hand written message (on the reverse side) is also included in this layout. Two different background options are available for these designs.  Click the images below for a larger view of sample designs.


Prices are listed below, please note that FREE SHIPPING is included with all orders placed by midnight of October 15. Click the image below for a full view of pricing information.


Simply email me at and I will reply with an order form.  Since these are custom cards, this will be easiest.  Depending on which design you’re interested in, I’ll have specific questions and suggestions for you to help create the best card possible.  Please include “Xmas Card Order” in the Subject heading.


Need photos?  I’m partnering with 2 incredible photographers.  Receive $20 off any card order when you book a mini-session with Fresh Art Photography (St. Louis, MO) or Amelia J. Moore Photography (Nashville, TN).  You’ll not only save on Christmas cards, but you’ll get the opportunity to book a session with two of the most talented photographers around.  Click the names of each photographer to visit their website and learn more about booking a mini-session.

As you know, last year I did a series of custom Christmas cards designed to look like vintage album covers, which I am making available again this year. See previous posts for examples. In addition, I’ve finally completed 3 other designs to throw into the mix for the 2010 series. Here’s a look at what will be made available shortly (using outdated pics of my beautiful family).  Click on any image for a larger view….

I’ll be posting the final design packages and prices hopefully later this week, so stay tuned.  I know it seems early, but lots of folks are booking photo sessions, etc. done with the holidays in mind and I’m trying to stay ahead of the game and keep you ahead as well.  More to come soon…
