Quote from Rebecca_140932 on Nov 20th, 2010, 3:40pm:

On your Easter cards, I think since they are so colorful, the blanks should read - (Inside) Hope you have a very colorful Easter.

On your Valentine's Day cards, I think those that say, "Be My Valentine" on the front, should read - (Inside) Happy Valentine's Day!

On this one, http://www.greetingcarduniverse.com/shopping/zoom.asp?pid=340274&w=1&ref =cb_large_view I think it should read - (Inside) You are thought of today, and always.

On this one, http://www.greetingcarduniverse.com/shopping/zoom.asp?pid=464182&w=1&ref =cb_large_view I think it should read - (Inside) Today, you are surrounded with love.

On this one, http://www.greetingcarduniverse.com/shopping/zoom.asp?pid=464044&w=1&ref =cb_large_view I think it should read - (Inside) May you be surrounded with love.

On this one, http://www.greetingcarduniverse.com/shopping/zoom.asp?pid=464042&w=1&ref =cb_large_view I think it should read - (Inside) Hope you have a wonderful day!

On this one, http://www.greetingcarduniverse.com/shopping/zoom.asp?pid=464041&w=1&ref =cb_large_view I think it should read - (Inside) Just thought I would drop you a few lines to let you know that you are thought of on this special day.

On this one, http://www.greetingcarduniverse.com/shopping/zoom.asp?pid=464039&w=1&ref =cb_large_view I think it should read - (Inside) Hope your life is filled with happiness, on this very special day.

Please do not feel like you owe me or anyone else anything. This is just advice and you do not have to take it. You are the one doing all the work. Good luck with your store!  Smiley


 
Hi Rebecca!
 
Thank you very much for taking your time to look at my cards and giving your suggestions. I'll be happy to use them! Thank you again for your help!  
 
I've visited your store "Grant Greetings" and I looked at your beautiful card collecton. I also read that you are a poet like my sister Maja. Both are skillful with words!
 
Best of luck in creating cards and poems!
Eva

I know this doesn't relate to the original post, but several have mentioned the uneven cut-off with borders.  I used to have this problem a couple of years ago, but everything i have ordered and received since has had "right on" cropping and a lot of my cards have borders. . . . a little (microscopic) does go over to the the back, but for the the most part, they've been centered.  I do move my image over "2 clicks" to the right when I'm z"finally" done and always allow 3/8 border.  It's worked pretty well so far . . . but with the inconsistencies with the printer, you just never know . . .I've been pretty lucky I guess.  But I do order a few of my cards every now and the, especially when I hear of possible printer problems, just to check.  As a graphic artist I am very concerned with end product. . . . you do have to just keep checking and bring up the problems when they are noticed.

That is great to know.   I have talked with some artists here who are very worried about the cropping of their cards. Too scared to even use borders in fact. I am sure you have eased many minds. Thanks!

any humorous/off-beat folks have ideas for a caption to this one?  I love the shot, but it needs some great words!

Peggy,  
What a sweet image!  You might even try 'humanizing' it with something like, "Gloria in Excelsis Deo" (as if the dog is singing...)  and then add something like, "On Christmas Day, the Animals Sing."   Cheesy

If it was me, I would write a bubble quote on the front saying, "Fa... La... La... La... La..." like the dog is singing, and inside I would write something like, "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays". If you don't know how to add the bubble on the front, just send it to me in an email as an attatchment and I can do it for you and send it back. Send me a private message and I can send you my email address if you want me to do this for you. If you can do it yourself, that would be great too. But, that is what I would do with this wonderful picture.

Thank you, All!
 
I've graduated to bubbles (but THANK YOU, for your offer - I love the spirit here!).  I agree .. this one really looks like he's singing ... still working on a caption.  Ideally I'd find a caption that would work with *anything* inside (for my SmugMug site too ...).  But for here, I can add my own insides.
 
This image  http://www.greetingcarduniverse.com/shopping/zoom.asp?pid=728253&w=1&ref =details_large_view  looked more like "dinner's on!" so I put what I did on the front.  Hope you like it!
