2015 Custom Photo Card Options
Rachelle Anne Photography provides a number of options for custom printed cards, to include portraits from your session. I have three different options from which clients can choose to have their custom cards created. Each option has its advantages, and the best choice really depends on your personal preference. Please let me know if you'd like to see samples, or discuss your options in more detail.
Option 1: Full Service Cards
Rachelle designs and sometimes collaborates with a professional photographic service company to provide a large selection of custom cards, including “photo cards” and “press printed” cards. If you are interested in quality cards at reasonable prices, please review our Card Catalog on our blog here (you will need to click the link on the blog):
You can select any type of card from the on-line catalog or send us an image of a design you have found, and I will incorporate your portrait(s) to create a custom card, including your personal greeting. As you will see in the catalog, cards can have one or many photos included. Just make a note of the catalog number of the card that you would like, and note the image number of the portrait(s) from your session that you want to have included on the card. My charge for the card set-up and ordering is $85. That includes your images. The cost of the cards depends on the style and quantity that you choose (ranging from $2.10 to $4.00 each). Prices include envelopes and shipping. Specialty paper and return address printing are extra. If you'd like a detailed quote, just let me know the catalog number or sample of the card and the quantity you need.
Option 2: "Tiny Prints" Holiday Cards (COMING SOON)
The second option is for those of you who would like to create your own card, through "Tiny Prints". They have a program that allows professional photographers to upload images, for clients to use in any of the "Tiny Prints" cards. They have a great selection of contemporary designs, that are press printed on heavy (110lb) card stock.
With this option, I would upload the desired image(s) to "Tiny Prints", and create an account for you to access your image(s). My charge for this service is $85 (add $10 for each additional image). Then you would incorporate your image(s) into the card of your choice, and place the order yourself. The prices for these cards are listed on the "Tiny Prints" website.
Option 3: Quantity 4x6 Prints
Whether they are printed on photo paper, or press printed on card stock, all of the cards in Option 1 and Option 2, incorporate the image(s) into the card itself. If you prefer to insert a photo into a card that you find elsewhere, I can provide quantity 4x6 prints (of the same image) for $1.25 each.
I can also create a 4x6 image to include a border (solid color of your choice), with your personal message. This option provides a unique card when you mount it on 5x7 card stock. My charge for creating the image with custom text and border is $85 (single image only). These quantity 4x6 prints would also be provided at $1.25 each.
