Custom Print Your Own Greeting Cards for the Holiday Season

    As sure as the Halloween stuff comes down from the shelves to be replaced with cornucopias and Santas, it’s time to think about custom Christmas cards and other holiday-themed greeting cards. Earlier this year we talked to pro photographer Clay Blackmore, who said the calls start rolling in on Dec. 1. This year, says Blackmore, the calls for cards are already starting and the first order has been made.

    Blackmore prints his “high-end, top shelf” cards on LexJet Sunset Etching Greeting Cards and plans to do it again this season. “We have about a dozen customers who want us to do something special, and it’s not about price. So we come up with all kinds of high-end, top-shelf cards,” he said.

    The cards are available in two different finished sizes – a 5.813 in. x 9 in. scored card folded to 5.813 in. x 4.5 in., or a 7.375 in. x 11 in. card folded to 7.375 in. x 5.5 in. – and can be printed on both sides. It’s recommended that you use a sheet-fed desktop-sized inkjet printer with a manual feed option, like the Canon iPF5100 and the Epson Stylus Pro 3880.

    Photo and fine art inkjet papers

    Made to the same high-quality fine art standards as LexJet’s line of Sunset Fine Art Papers, LexJet Sunset Etching Greeting Cards have a warm etching-like finish compatible with the latest inkjet printer models from Epson, Canon and HP. The cards can be purchased in bulk or as a kit. The kit includes Type 6 envelopes with a Baronial Style Flap.

    The cards are perfect for any special occasion or holiday, including invitations and other announcements. For more information about Sunset Etching Greeting Cards, call a LexJet account specialist at 800-453-9538.
