Card Info

What's the difference between Premium/A/B price Categories?

You will see cards have codes such as A51, B35 & P16 where the P, A & B represent the different price categories (P: Premium Cards are our newest designs). For the A coded (mid-range) and B coded (budget), price differences are purely down to stock levels, not quality - all our cards are A5 in size and use high quality card. The Premium & A ranges are charity affiliate, whereas B range are not.

What size are the cards?

All our cards are at least A5 size when folded, and fit in the 'standard letter' postage stamp category. Aftering viewing cards, click the image of each card for more info.

Will envelopes be included?

Yes, premium quality self-seal envelopes are included and free of charge with all orders - you also have the option of 120gsm red self-seal envelopes for 10p each.

Proofing & Printing

How long will proofs take?

Can I include our business logo or image?

Yes, of course - in the card gallery click the card you like, enter your quantity, then choose if you want your logo on the front or inside of the card. The order system's personalisation proofer allows you upload a logo image file (bigger/high resolution is better).

Can I get 2 logos or more?

Yes, we can print as many logos as you like (included in your colour or frontpage print charge) but unfortunately the online system can only cope with 1 logo. Email Us to arrange your multi-logo order.

Can you print my signature?

Yes, there's a small charge of £10 for up to 5 signatures (£15 for 6-10, £20 for 11+) - simply get everyone to sign 1 piece of paper and scan/email it to us.

We now have a Guide to Scanning Signatures.
Alternatively you can mail it to us unfolded (address details here) with a brief note of your order.

When ordering online we will request the signatures after the order is submitted, then email back a new proof with them added for you to check.

How much is it for a personalised / custom greeting?

You can have any greeting / details you want free of charge!

What example greetings can you suggest?

When browsing the Christmas Cards, click the small image, update quantity, then you will be shown the online proofer which has a number of greetings you can choose from - but also feel completely free to make up your own!

You can also view the Fonts and Greetings Page or Personalised Print pages for inspiration.

Can I choose the typeface?

The order system shows a range of commonly selected typefaces but if you would like something different you can choose 'Other' and suggest one!

Is there a limit on greetings/text?

No, you can have any number of lines/characters you like and you can print on both sides (inside) of the card.

Where the online proof system can't accomdate your request, simply Email Us and we'll make the proof manually for you.

Is printing direct to card or on paper inserts?

By default we print direct to the card, as it is generally believed to be a more professional finish. We can, however, print to paper inserts on request - you must ensure this request is noted on your invoice. There is no additional charge for black & white inserts.

What cards can I print on the front of?

You can print on the front of just about any card where there is available white space!
We have examples shown in the Frontpage Gallery, but you can also try proofing the front yourself after selecting a Christmas Card.
