Print Greetings Cards

© Fae Loudoun Photography

Personalised Greetings Cards

In the age of the smartphone photography has never been more popular, with many of us carrying a digital camera, with substantial capabilities, in our pockets.

Turn your photographs into greetings cards, with a personalised message inside, and your name and any other detail on the back.

Whether you’re an amateur or professional photographer, make unique cards to promote your brand, to sell, or simply for the pleasure of your friends and family.

When photographing for a greetings card, bear in mind that your overall image must extend beyond the outside edges of the card. This prevents the risk of a white line appearing along the edge of your card, or losing the effect of your photograph by having to clip the edges.

If you have an idea which isn’t mentioned here that you’d like to see in print, get in touch.

I can advise you of the possibilities, process, and potential costs of making it happen.

Professional PrintingNot all printing is the same

Printing, in all forms, is a specialist process. Not all print companies are the same and a one stop shop is a convenient, but rarely cost-effective solution.

Print/production and the associated prices will depend on the type of product and the quantity you require. Some companies specialise in short print runs, some long print runs – it can be very expensive to choose the wrong company for your needs!

I work with a variety of reliable, experienced printing firms who’re guaranteed to produce top quality results for the best price available.

I can save you time and unnecessary expense by directing your finished design to the appropriate companies to produce the finished result.

Magazines, newsletters, catalogues, booklets, directories, user manuals…

Sometimes a simple leaflet doesn’t say enough.

Whether it’s a company newsletter or magazine, or a leisure related publication there are many options available to help you strike the right balance for both you and your readership. If you have the content, I will provide the stepping stone between your idea and seeing it in print. Or online. Perhaps both? I can help with that, too…

With more than 10 years experience in editing and publishing magazines, I can offer assistance and advice on creating your own publication. Have your content ready and I will create your printed item ready to email as a PDF document, to go for printing. Use your own printing company, or if you are unsure leave me to negotiate a printing contract for you. Your item/s can be virtually any page size (e.g. A5, A4 etc), any volume, and any combination of colour (e.g. greyscale, two tone, three tone, full colour). I can advise you on the options available to you, and help you to work out a cost-effective solution without compromising on quality and effect.

Applying your logo or slogan with embroidery or heat transfer

Logo-Embroider-and-Heat-TransferWearing an item of clothing with your brand or slogan emblazoned across it is a great advertising tool, and can add a touch of professionalism to uniforms, sports wear and work clothes.

Getting your name, logo or slogan onto clothing and other items is usually straightforward if you choose the right company for your needs. Your design will need to be prepared for the process and supplied in an appropriate, high quality format in order to achieve the very best results.

 

I can take care of your embroidery/printing procedure from logo/design preparation through to the finished result.

 

Your prepared image file will be yours to take away and reuse as many times as you wish, with any embroidery/printing company.

Understanding the possibilities

Costs and procedure

Supplying your design

You will need to supply your logo/design to the embroidery company in a format suitable for a quality reproduction. A screen shot or photograph will usually be fine to obtain an initial quotation, but for the application a better quality image must be provided. Your chosen company will advise you on this, and I can produce the necessary file for you if you have nothing suitable already. Get in touch for a no obligation quote.

Set up

Whether your item is to be embroidered or heat transferred there will almost certainly be a one time set up fee to pay for your design to be “digitized” in preparation for the process. Your design will be digitally analysed and graph data added, so every stitch can be planned in order to achieve an accurate reproduction. This one time fee is usually around £25 – £35. Simple text designs may be cheaper to setup, larger or more complex designs may incur a surcharge.

Every variation of your logo/design will require digitization, and will incur another set up fee. For example, if you have a logo/design suitable for the front of a garment, and a variation of it suitable for the reverse, this will require two set up fees.

Some companies need to send your design away to be digitized, and they will be able to advise you on the time this will take, and the associated costs.

Other companies will be able to do this themselves, reducing the time it takes and possibly the set up fee, too.

The cost of the one time set up fee means you need to carefully consider which company you use for your embroidery/heat transfer – you will want to minimise the chance of having to pay the set up fee again by having to use a different company at any point in the future.

Application

There will be a fee per application of your logo/design. This may vary according to it’s size, or complexity – it depends on the company. Some companies will offer price variations according to the size of the application. There may be discounts available for larger orders.

Application may take a few hours, days or even weeks. It depends on the individual company, if items need to be ordered in for you, and if a postal service is required to ship items back and forth.

Have horses or dogs?

Personalise rugs, coats, saddle cloths, containers, bags, restrainers and much more with embroidery and heat transfer.

Things to consider when choosing a company for your embroidery/heat transfer

  • Does the company offer both embroidery AND heat transfer?
  • What is the one time set up fee, and how long does this take?
  • What are the price variations for design sizes?
  • How long does each order/application take? Hours/days/weeks?
  • Does the company apply a minimum order quantity/value to each order?
  • Does the company supply ALL the items you are likely to require now, and may require in the future?
  • Is the company happy to apply your design to items you provide, and do they charge extra for this?
  • How accessible is the embroidery company?
  • Does the company offer a postal service, and if so how much does this cost?

 

Sourcing items suitable for personalisation

Not everything is suitable for embroidery/heat transfer, and a lot of embroidery companies will supply items for you. If they don’t display a range on their website they will provide a catalogue and price list. If you already own an item you know you can apply your design to, you’ll need to check if your chosen company is happy to do this at no additional cost.

Ideas for things to personalise:

  • Jackets
  • Fleeces
  • Hoodies
  • T-shirts/polo shirts
  • Trousers/jogging bottoms
  • Gillets
  • Caps and hats
  • Aprons
  • Overalls
  • Scarves
  • Tabbards
  • Onesies
  • Bags
  • Health/beauty uniforms
  • Sheets and bedspreads
