feed Personalised Christmas and Greetings Cards


INFORMATION AND PRICES

There’s something special about receiving a Christmas card from family or friends, printed from a photograph they have chosen, with a personal message. It’s easy to do and much less expensive than you may think. Our high quality personalised Christmas cards, printed on 300gsm white card, come in a choice of three finishes and three sizes. They are digitally printed using the latest technology, which produces a consistently high quality image. You can order as few as 25 and as many as you want. All we need is a favourite photograph or illustration (or more if you want a selection printed) and the wording you would like inside. Hopefully this leaflet gives you all the information you need to create your perfect Christmas card, but if you have any questions or special requests please get in touch.

CHOICE OF CARD 

There are three types of finishes available: gloss, silk and matt. If you are using a photograph then silk and gloss are recommended and the latter is better if there are large blocks of dark colour because they tend to mark more easily. If using an original small watercolour, line drawing or similar then silk or matt are the popular choices. The matt finish is very lightly textured, whereas both silk and gloss are smooth. 

SENDING YOUR IMAGE

Please send either the original photograph/illustration, which we can scan and send back to you, or send the image on a CD or memory stick. Alternatively you can upload your image into the Wilton65 Dropbox: just send an email requesting this option and we will respond with a link to the Dropbox and instructions. For an extra £15 per additional image, your order can be made up of more than one design. Just specify how many you want printed of each design. We can scan images up to A4 in size. Larger images will incur an additional cost.

WORDING INSIDE THE CARD

Cards are printed in black on the inside. Colour printing inside is an extra 15p per card. You can either pick one of our standard greetings or choose your own. You may want to include an address and contact details, which can be put in a block on the left or centralised at the bottom, underneath the greeting, plus a caption to the picture on the inside left. 

Here is an example:

COLOUR MATCHING

We colour match as close to your original image as possible. Please be aware that if you are viewing your image on a screen it could look slightly different when printed. This is because digital cameras and computers use the RGB colour scheme. Red, green and blue are mixed together on a screen to create the colours that you see. In printing, however, CMYK is the colour scheme that is used, made up of cyan (blue), magenta (pink), yellow and black. This is why we always send you a hardcopy proof of the card to ensure that you are happy with the image. 

CARD PROOF AND DELIVERY OF YOUR ORDER

Once your order has been placed and your photograph/illustration has been received, either by post or electronically, the card will be set and a proof printed for approval. You can expect to receive this within 6 working days. Once we receive your approval your cards will be printed and we aim to deliver them to you within a week, although during the busiest times it could take up to 10 days. Any amendments required will be done straight away and another proof sent, if necessary. 

In order to allow plenty of time for delivery by the beginning of December please place your order by 1st November.
