I've had some questions asked recently so I thought I'd do a "Frequently Asked Questions" goes..

1. Can you use any picture that I give you in your designs?
Yes and No. You can use any picture as long as you email me the original file size and when I open it the quality is good. If the picture is just so-so, I can attempt some Photoshop editing on it. In some cases, photo quality cannot be adjusted and you may need to choose another photo.

2. When is the latest I can place my holiday card order?
Once the final product has been approved by you and ordered, it will take 2-3 days for me to receive it from the lab. If you are local, we can work something out so you have your product as soon as I receive it. If additional shipping is required, more time is needed. Orders can be drop-shipped directly to you, but I like to see them myself first to make sure they are "just right". With that in mind, December 1st seems like an appropriate date to have all necessary information received on my end (your design choice, wording, photo file). December 5th is the last date I will place orders, unless other arrangements with me are made.

3. Is volume pricing available on Mommy Playdate Cards and Gift Tags?
Mommy Playdate Cards pricing is as follows:
50 cards= $20
100 cards= $35
150 cards= $45

custom design: add $5.00

Gift tag pricing is as follows:
Set of 50= $20
Set of 100= $40
Set of 150= $60
(Sorry, the lab doesn't give volume discounts on these!)

Please note that these prices are my holiday "sale" prices. Regular prices will go into effect January 1st.

4. Do you have to use a photo on the Mommy Playdate cards?
No! I am in the process of creating some designs without photos. Expect these in the next couple of days.

5. Where are your baby announcement prices?
The pricing for announcements can be found under the "Pricing" post dated October 15th...or click on the link "Pricing" under the Labels heading on the right hand side of the blog. Prices are listed for 5x5 and 5x7 prints, lustre/glossy finish or metallic finish. If you need pricing for another size, please leave a comment or email me.

In setting up my business plan, I acknowledge that there are many, many options for holiday cards and birth announcements out there. I feel my prices are competitive with many online photo sites, and you have the added bonus of a design created just for you.

6. Do you offer photography services?
I was going to wait a little bit longer to add this service, but I have had some interest so I am open to inquiries. I am currently working on building my portfolio. Email me for a price list and more details.

Any more questions? Let me know!
