- 100% Recycled - a bright white finish with the occasional fleck of paper fibre in the finished product (130# Cover/352 GSM)

*Some of the designs offer color or wording customization. More info below and in the order form.

I needed pictures to put in the cards to show you the designs so I started off with my best impression of a little reindeer from a recent photo booth...that soon got old and I started to think my expression looked a weird so I dug out some of our wedding pictures :)

DESIGN #1 - HAPPY NEW YEAR SQUARES
This is a flat 5x7 vertical card - I've shown the front of the card and the back of the card next to each other above. You can show off 5 different pictures and the two color boxes are customizable. You can specify two colors for the color boxes with text or I can pick up a color from one of your pictures (which is what I did here with the warm orangey/gold of the backdrop)

DESIGN #2 - HAPPY NEW YEAR SIMPLE (update - yup - just noticed it's the wrong year ;)






A flat 5x7 card, one landscape image on the front. You can do one landscape image on the back or one landscape and one portrait (as above). The colors can be customized.

DESIGN #3 - HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM AFAR


This flat 5x7 card allows you to show off one favorite image (vertical/portrait orientation) but also to let everyone know where you're living. Great if you've recently moved or if you live away from most of your family and friends. There are two options to customize this card - changing the state and also the message - choose from Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas.

DESIGN #4 - HAPPY EVERYTHING


This design is one of my favorites. You can show off three of your favorite images.

DESIGN #5 - ALMOST LETTERPRESS (SNOWFLAKES OR TREES)





Note that these cards are a little different to the other (I'm thinking the snowflake design might be my card this year - just need to get a new picture with Paul now!) These cards are 5x5 (note that 5x5 cards aren't classed as "standard" by UPSP and there's a 20c non-machinable surcharge imposed per card when you go to buy your stamps!) and they're only printed on ONE SIDE. The graphic elements (the snowflakes or the trees) are pressed into the card so it has a really luxurious feel and look. There are two different designs - snowflakes or trees (as shown above) and there is no printing on the back. Almost letterpress is printed on a beautiful premium cotton paper (no other paper options are available).

DESIGN #6 - POP OUT ORNAMENT CARD (HUGS & KISSES)


I though you might be missing my sad reindeer look so thought I'd bring it back for this one! This card is  pretty awesome. They're flat 5x7 cards but they're die-cut in the shape of a holiday ornament which you can pop out. On the left you'll see how the card looks - and on the right you can see the part which pops out.  One side of the card has the message and the other side shows off a favorite picture.

DESIGN #7 - POP OUT ORNAMENT CARD (LET IT SNOW)



Just like the above pop out card, this 5x7 flat card is also printed on both sides and die-cut to pop out a cute card ornament showing off a favorite image on either side. The picture on the left shows how the card looks and the picture on the right shows how the ornament looks once it's popped out.  Start a new tradition and do a different pop-out ornament card each year!
