About

Behind Cards Etcetera

The first card I designed was a birth announcement for my niece. I was hooked. The next year, I created the Christmas card for my family. I then decided to create an Etsy shop and list that card. It has snowballed from there!

I truly love the creative aspect of designing cards. Since I love photography, I strive to keep the designs simple so that they compliment the photo, and not distract from it.

I live in Arizona along with my little family. My husband is my biggest supporter. We have a sweet and talkative 9 year old daughter that is growing up way too fast.

-----------------PRINTING NOTE------------------

If you are printing on card stock through me or any other printer, the printer will crop in on all sides of the card. It can vary from 1/8" to 1/4" I design the cards and place photos with this in mind, but be advised that it will be cropped some. It is best to use photos that can allow for this when possible.

Also, please be advised: The press printing process is different than the photo print process. The continuous tones will not necessarily appear on the cards because it is a 4 dot process that makes up the card. The 4 dots of ink try to replicate what is in the file and it may not always bring a continuous tone. The darker, richer tones already in the file can be enhanced a bit. (It is a different look than photos printed on photo paper.) This may cause very dark or low quality photos to appear grainy.

By emailing me a photo/photos to be used in a card, you are stating that you have the legal rights to reproduce that image.

I am not responsible for low resolution, dark, grainy, or blurry photos.

All cards are done in Photoshop and are sent as a jpeg image (300 ppi) in RGB color.

I recommend doing a test print of one card before printing your full order. This way, you can make sure everything is as you want it before printing lots of them.
