how to order a christmas card ?

1. ordering

when to order?

if you want to send your christmas cards before december 25, order before december 1, this way there is enough time to design, print and send your cards.
you can order at any time off course (i.e. when you just send happy new year or any other wishes), but keep in mind we need about 2 weeks to print the cards after your approval.
if you want them faster, you can use our 'rush service', which incurre extra costs.


choose a card/design

choose a card from our collection christmas cards. the colors and text are always customized to your taste!
in fact, what you choose is only the font type :-)


fill out the order form and upload your picture(s)

click on the orange button 'order this card' on the detail page of the chosen card and fill out the order form.

after completing the order form, you can immediately upload the pictures you want to use.

checklist pictures:

  • is the picture big enough? (high resolution, i.e. 5 MegaPixel)
  • is the picture sharp? (faces must be as sharp as possible)
  • is the picture well exposed? (no pictures taken in the dark)
  • do you like the picture? (except for some contrast and cropping, we do not edit your pictures)
  • did you make you own selection? (you can send us a maximum of 2 pictures)

all christmas cards are printed on 400gr offset paper and finished with a matt lamination.

please read carefully through the conditions before you place the order. it contains information about copyright, right of withdrawal and cancellation


2. design

online proofing

after receipt of the order we'll start designing asap, and within 3 days we'll send you a link to your personal customer area by email
where you can see and review the first online proof of your card.
if you want to change something after reviewing the online proof, just let us know! any adjustment is made within 3 to 5 working days.


customer area

in your personal customer area you can follow up on your order at any time.

  • you'll see all the designs and modifications
  • you'll be able to view all details of your order and change yourself: delivery method, amount...
  • you can give your approval on a design, so everything is ready to print.


ready to print

once you're completely satisfied with the design of the card, we'll ask to approve the final design (= ready to print).

first, check all information about your order (delivery mode, amount, etc.)
then read all text on the card very carefully, so there are no typos (phone numbers, names, accounts, addresses ...)

once the card is approved for print and payed for, it is no longer possible to change anything (as we send it to the printer immediately).

when you approve the card, you will get a confirmation by e-mail. this e-mail also gives an overview of your order.


payment

after the approval, you will be invited to pay the total amount by wire transfer (only EU) or credit card.
please note that we can only start printing after payement has been processed!

christmas cards take about two weeks to produce and ship (unless in rush procedure).
