The minimum order is just one card. So the best way to find out how your image might look is to create a card design using your photo and order just one card as a proof. Remember that we archive every card we print, so if you are happy with the result you can just go to our re-order page and order more cards.
Every greeting card order and proof we produce is archived. This means that you are able to re-order more cards in the future without having to submit a new card order again.
Start by Click the Add Image button and uploading your image file. You can, if you wish, use an alternative image or logo for the thumbnail image on the reverse of the card.
Click on Add Text to add a line of text to either the front or the back of the card. You can format your text with a range of fonts (two serif and two sans serif plus one handwritten font), a range of text colours, bold or italic formatting and a text outline colour if required.

Facebook says it now has over 1 billion people using the site each month, with over 665 million active users each day. This makes it one of the most powerful marketing tools any self publishing artist or photographer can use. When you have a strong presence on Facebook, your business is part of these conversations and has access to the most powerful kind of word-of-mouth marketing — recommendations between friends.
Email marketing is a simple and affordable marketing option for anyone with little time and limited resources. But of course you need to collect a list of interested subscribers who want to know more about your work before you can begin communicating with them, letting them know about new artwork or forthcoming exhibitions and events.
What's the best way to market my greeting cards? Many self publishers use traditional means like art shows, craft exhibitions, local art galleries, independent shops, markets and street stalls.
Your first step might be to pound the pavements and approach independent shops or galleries with your line of card products. Starting out can be hard work and could result in little interest at first, but be determined if you believe your work will sell.
