I received the nicest emails yesterday. This is why I love my job! These email excerpts made me smile...and keep me putting everything I have into each photo announcement I create for you:

I am so excited to get them in process. I didn't want to get announcements that looked like everyone else's and when I came across your site it was exactly what I was looking for.
With my best regards, Annie's mom


My mother is an OB/GYN. She sees so many birth announcements all the time and she says yours always stand out so well from the others because they are just excellent. She and her partners highly recommend your services.

Thank you so much, Lisa. You were a dream to work with. I will recommend you highly when people ask where we got our announcements, as I'm sure they will! :)

Thanks Lisa, I can't wait to get them. I so enjoy doing business with you and so have all of my friends who I have referred to you. Best wishes.

photo announcement - we're moving


Realizing I am not posting nearly enough, since I am lucky to get one post a month looking at my post history...I thought I'd start the day posting a few photo announcement designs I've been working on.
This design announces a move to Gijon, Spain. I decided to incorporate a map into the background since I figured the first thought people would have when they received the postcard would be "where is Gijon, Spain?" (Well, that's what I thought...didn't you?!)
I was inspired by a shadow box I created when I was managing an art gallery years ago. Wanting to celebrate the time we spent in Amsterdam during our honeymoon, I decided to design and create a permanent memory of our trip, one we could see every day hanging in our home. I gathered some of our favorite photos from the trip, and mounted them with white mats so each picture looked like a little framed photo. I added spacers of varying heights to give more visual interest and attached them over a map of the city, numbering the photos. Then I placed a matching number on the map, right where we took the corresponding photo. The next time we go back to Amsterdam, we will remember exactly where we visited!
Now we just need to find time to get back...
