What do I need to supply?
The Classic Publishing Studio create the layout and greeting card artwork for you if you wish, with no extra charge, so you only need to supply the image(s) for the front of the greeting cards. You can supply a drawing or painting (up to A4), a photograph, a digital file - anything. We have even made greeting cards from a piece of embroidery. Our studio take your image(s), add any wording to the front and the back of the card, add your website or contact details, the title of the image and any other wording that you may require. We can add your logo, a thumbnail copy of the front image - anything. Our studio then email a PDF proof to you for your approval - before we print. If you are not happy then we will reproof until you are! We want you to be delighted.

Multiple Greeting Card versions
Our prices assume that all the cards are printed to ONE design. If you require extra versions (i.e. 250 off each of two designs, making 500 in total or 50 off each of four designs, making 200 in total) we only charge an extra £10 (plus VAT) for each extra design. For example, 500 cards off two designs (250 off each) would only cost an extra £10 (plus VAT). This option is available on the order form after you have uploaded your images.
Printing on the outside back is included
Single-sided printing means that your design will feature on the front AND on the outside back of your greeting card. Double-sided means that your design or wording will also will feature on the inside of your greeting card, when folded, as well as the front and reverse. Most people order single sided greeting cards. These will then have your image on the front and can also carry your information on the outside back, together with your logo, your contact details and even a thumbnail of the front image if you wish - all at NO EXTRA CHARGE

Optional "Cello" bags for packing your printed greeting cards
"Cello" bags are commonly used throughout the greeting card trade to keep the greeting cards clean, while awaiting sale. They are no longer made from cellophane though. They are made from "glass-clear" superior polycarbonate, rather that cellophane. The "cello" bags have a peel off self-adhesive strip for sealing. Many shops insist upon the cards being packed in cello bags to avoid the stock quickly becoming unsaleable. As they are so inexpensive it makes sense to use them if you are retailing your greeting cards.
All cello bags take one folded greeting card and one envelope. Most people put the envelope inside the folded card so that the front and back of the greeting card can be seen. All greeting cards are supplied flat and creased to fold accurately.
