Send a little love this holiday season.
We are approaching the most wonderful time of year. And Doodling Pandas is thrilled to be offering custom Holiday Cards once again for end of year holidays 2023 and New Years 2024.
Why choose custom cards instead of a template alternative found many other places online?
Personalize the message. Did you welcome a new family member this year? Did you move? Did you lose a loved one that you want to memorialize? All of these events and more can be custom designed into your card.
Customize the design. How many times have you found a card you love, but the colors don't match your favorite family photo? Or the photo allocation doesn't match the number or orientation of what you want to show? Let us customize the card around your pictures, your message, and your vibe.
Stand out. Maybe you're the type of person who wants something different than a standard 5x7 card. Maybe you want a foldable card with a short update for each family member. Maybe you want a more intimate version of your card, and a second option for more distant friends or colleagues. Maybe you want a card from your business. Or maybe you want to send a card celebrating a non-traditional holiday or milestone. We've got you covered.
Save time! Building your own cards, even when using a template, takes time, our most precious resource. We get it. Outsource it to us and we'll make sure you have a perfect card for your friends and family while you take care of the million other things on your to-do list.
This year, all of our cards include:
One custom front and back design
Full-color, double-sided printing
Plus, complimentary white envelopes with:
Mail-merged addresses, if provided
A custom design element on the envelope to tie in with the card design
What is the turnaround time?
Custom card design takes approximately 3-5 business days from the receipt of the complete request. Complete requests include all photos, messaging, design requests, inspiration samples, and recipient address spreadsheet.
When design is completed, a digital proof will be sent for client approval. Proofs will go to print within 1-2 business days of approval. Printing is usually complete within 3 days.
Shipping: All cards are sent with 2 day priority shipping through USPS. But please be aware that shipping times cannot be guaranteed by Doodling Pandas Creative as they are out of our control.
