why are your prices so competitive?

We have created all of our own designs & print all of the cards in our own print shop, we create and manage our own website, we manage all of our own marketing. All of this helps to keep our overheads low, which in turn we pass on to you; the customer.

can I see a completed proof of the card with my photo?
There are a few sites that can show you a preview of your card once you have entered your details, we prefer to do the hard work for you. All photos we receive are routinely checked for quality and physical proofs are output before emailing you a proof to check. We will format the size of the text required and even change the layout to suit your photos if the design allows, we have even set-up new designs at our customer's request. Once set, we will email a professional typeset proof to you to check and approve. All customers are sent an Acrobat proof (you may be more familiar with it's file extension PDF). this is for you to check that you are happy with the layout and fonts you have chosen.The complexity of our designs and the care we take with your photos should mean the final result is upto the high expectations we have.

I do not want all of the picture can you help?
In the 'specific requirements box' please tell us about any specific requirement relating to your order, for instance, ' please crop the picture to the head and shoulders' or 'please do not crop my image' if no instruction is given we will place the picture as we think will benefit the photo and the announcement card.
We can edit, using photoshop your photo, but we will only do this if requested. We will also make a charge for this service depending on the amount of editing required. Please contact us to discuss if you require photo editing.

Absolutely, we are happy to scan your photo. Please post it to us quoting your order reference. After we receive your photo we will proceed to supplying a proof for your approval.

when will I receive my order?
All customers should receive their order on the next working day after confirming their order, this is after giving approval to the proof we have set for you. All deliveries are sent Royal Mail First Class delivery. As sometimes the post can be less efficient than it would like to be please wait until the third working day after you approve your order before chasing.
