Card Ordering

Our Birth Announcements and Custom Cards are available in a variety of options and fully customizable. In addition, you may choose flat cards (similar to a two-sided postcard) or traditional folded cards. We hope this page offers some helpful tips on ordering your custom premium cards. In our online store, you may browse our individual card templates and see a preview of the front and back designs of most cards.

Flat Cards

Our Two-Sided Flat cards are available in standard and boutique shapes. Most of our templates can be customized, and we will be happy to work with you to choose the best template to suit the boutique shape of your choice.

We also offer premium folded cards. Our store templates show the front and back of most of our card designs, and we can customize a coordinating inside design for you. Folded cards are only available in rectangular or square shapes.

Customization

All of our card templates are customizable on all sides. You may choose the wording for your card, how your names appear, and even other special elements like adding a quotation, the date or year, your children’s ages, and so on. The font styles on our cards are also changeable.

Sizes and Formats

Our premium cards are available in the following sizes and formats:

Flat Cards
Rectangular, Notched, Ornate, Scalloped, Oval – each approximately 5×7 in size
Square, Circle, Scalloped Circle, Scalloped Square – each approximately 5×5 in size*

Folded Cards
Rectangular – 5×7 inches when folded
Square – 5×5 inches when folded*

*Please note that per US Postal Regulations, any square card will require additional postage if mailed in a square envelope. You may request a standard 5×7 envelope with your 5×5 cards if you would like to avoid the additional postage.

Paper Styles

We have 5 paper styles available.

Smooth Matte – A thick, non-textured paper stock.

Linen – An elegant matte-finish paper with a subtly embossed crossweave texture like traditional linen cloth.

Watercolor – A matte-finish paper with a rippled texture.

Premium Glossy – A thicker paper stock with a high gloss coating added on both sides.

Pearl – An iridescent, semi-gloss cardstock. The luminous base color of this card stock is ivory instead of white, so your card design and images will have a warmer tone when printed. This is our heaviest cardstock.

*We generally recommend the Linen paper for more elegant cards, and the Gloss for more contemporary designs. Shannon will be happy to make a recommendation based on the card design you choose. If you would like to personally sign or write on your cards, we recommend a matte-finish paper. The Glossy and Pearl papers are nearly impossible to write on.

Envelope Choices

All cards include envelopes in your choice of pure white or parchment. Shannon will be happy to make a recommendation based on the card design you choose.

Creative Additions

Bookmarks
Include some fun keepsakes in your holiday cards or announcements this year! Each year, I print some custom bookmarks which compliment the design of my holiday card, and send them along to friends and family. They love the little keepsake to tuck in their book or Bible during the year. My kids even use the bookmarks in their own books! Bookmarks come in sets of 25 and are 2×8 inches in size. I recommend a Glossy or Pearl paper for durability and fingerprint resistance.

Calendars
Available in boxes of 25 with all the same paper options as our custom cards, your family will love keeping these on their fridge or bulletin board year round. Calendars may be printed in 5×5 or 5×7 sizes on cardstock. Calendars may also be ordered as individual 8×8 mounted prints.

Matching Thank You Cards
Perfect for Birth Announcements and Holiday Cards alike. You may choose a traditional 5×7 flat announcement and a coordinated folded Thank You note in a coordinated design. Leave the inside of the Thank You Note blank for your personal note, or include another image and message.
