Guide for greeting cards – personalising

STU ART CONCEPTS - choices to personalise your greeting cards - size, message, envelope

No two cards sold by STU ART CONCEPTS are the same!

Because of the options available, each card is unique and special for your recipient. The options in each card’s listing makes it easy to personalise them. Firstly, many cards are personalised for free with the recipient’s name on the front. Other ways to make your card unique are by size, inside message and envelope colour.

STU ART CONCEPTS has prepared this guide to answer frequently asked questions about how to personalise a card, the making, packaging and shipping. If you need further help you can contact Stuart.

STEP 1 – THE FRONT

MAKING THE CARD

STU ART CONCEPTS will receive your order with your choices & instructions. Firstly, Stuart will edit the artwork. If required, he’ll send you an email with a screenshot the inside artwork for your approval. Then once approved, he prints your artwork.

Importantly STU ART CONCEPTS uses the highest quality museum grade materials. Firstly, the card is Canson Rag Photographique, 310gsm which is “pure white” with an “ultra smooth” feel. Secondly, the ink is Epson archival quality. Consequently, the greeting cards have vibrant colours and deep blacks. In addition, they can be kept for generations or even framed.

After printing, the card is scored, folded and packaged with the selected envelope.

PACKAGING

Protection of your greeting card in transit is very important. Consequently a cellophane sleeve encloses the card and envelope to protect them from moisture damage. Furthermore a rigid recycled cardboard insert protects the card from physical damage.
