Thank you, Stephanie, for the helpful tips. I always have enjoyed seeing "Before and After" pictures of all kinds. Your subtle changes made a big difference. Congratulations on the sales!  
It would be fun to see what other artists have done to improve their existing cards, too.
On a related note, I posted a GCU Support question in the Forum on August 25th concerning one of my updated images that had an immediate sale. I have yet to receive a single reply, although I have had 1,112 people read the post. If you, or anyone in GCU Support, could help me find an answer to my question, it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

After a customer orders a card, how long does it take for the Artist Services notice of a sale to appear in our email? I'm wondering this, because last night at about 10:00pm, I changed an old card by updating the text with a smaller, different font. It was a seascape/painting of mine in which I also changed a seagull to make it sharper and much nicer.  
It was a needed improvement, in my opinion. This morning about 12 hours after I made my changes to the image, I received a notice that 2 of these cards have been sold.  
So now, I'm wondering if what the customer saw on the GCU site is what they will receive. I would not want someone to get something different than what they originally ordered even if it's a much better, updated design.
