2012 Holiday Cards
I know many photographers like to create their own custom holiday cards for their clients, but not me. See, I'm not a designer at all. I've always said that I leave card design to the experts because I want your holiday cards to look incredible. So for almost a decade now I've been referring my clients a handful of really quality holiday card vendors (see below for links to their websites).
But now here we are years later and I'm starting to get overwhelmed by all the options out there. When I stand back and think about it, my own holiday card program from past years confuses me.
So I'm simplifying.
High res JPGs (digital negatives of your photos) are available. You can order all the JPGs from your shoot for $600, or individual JPGs at a rate of $65 for the first JPG and $40 for each additional JPG. Or if you're also ordering prints and/or photobooks, you can order your digital files as part of your order online through my order form by checking the JPG box next to the images you'd like. But to just pay for just a JPG or JPGs, click on this link to use your Mastercard or VISA, and note the image number (or numbers) in the comments field. I will email you a link to download your JPG or JPGs in both color and b&w two business days (and often much sooner) after I receive payment.

If you want to work with Tiny Prints, Minted, Mango Ink, Pretty on Paper, or Chubbybum Cards (my favorite card vendors), the "additional JPG" pricing doesn't apply. That means if you work with one of these companies, you can put as many photos on your card as you'd like and just pay me $65 for the use of all of them. With these vendors I send JPGs directly to them, so in the comments field of the payment page to let me know which photos I should send to whom. Also let me know if you'd like one of the photos sent directly to you in high-res.
Tiny Prints specifics
: They have one page where all their active coupons are posted. Cool, eh? It's here
. If you're using Tiny Prints, you first choose the photos from your photoshoot you might want to use in your card, BEFORE YOU PLACE YOUR ORDER
. You email me the numbers of the images you're thinking of using and I'll upload them into the tinyprints system. Then after you get the email from me that your photos are uploaded, you can design your card using those photos and place your order with them.
: This year (seems like they've taken a page from Tiny Prints' book) they too have a page where all their active coupons are posted. It's here
. To order, choose any design from the site, and customize the colors, fonts, and message. Please make a note that I will be uploading your photo(s) in the [Add special design instructions here] field. Proceed to the checkout and enter your personal and payment information, review the order, and submit the order. Once the order is placed, please email me to ask that I upload specific image numbers and remember to give me your order number. If you have placed an order for a card with multiple photos, please let me know the order of the photos so I can upload them the right way. When the digital proof is ready for review, Minted will notify you via email.
Mango Ink specifics
: Mango Ink offers my clients 15% off their entire order if they use this coupon code: "bostonbaby". Just place your order with them first, and then email me your order number and let me know which image numbers I should send to Ryan and Heidi.
Pretty on Paper specifics
