Holiday season is officially upon us. This means with all the hustle and bustle between shops, to-do lists, decorating, and normal everyday stuff—holiday cards need to go out. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with all of the choices out there. Where do you start? How do you know which printers are good? Or if they’ll deliver in a timely fashion? Not to mention the thousands of choices in layout and design. During a time when there’s already enough to be thinking about, choosing to place your holiday card order through your family photographer makes sense. Not only do they already have the beautiful digital files of the photos you wish to use—but they have work closely with printers who do the job right.
I always recommend to my clients to lean on me in helping them choose their holiday cards. It’s not just about simplicity, though that’s a good reason. Here are four more reasons your family photographer will deliver your best holiday cards ever.
Let’s take a look:
When I offer holiday card recommendations for my client, I usually review all their images, and take into account their personal aesthetics. Which is something I learned about through the process of working together. I’ll often put together an idea for them in a viewing session with a small number of amazing layouts I know they’ll love.
As a photographer, I take the printing and design of the photos I take seriously. When I’m in charge of the holiday card order, I can ensure the image as printed, design, and paper quality are topnotch. I work closely with my vendors, so I trust their services and if I have a problem, I can quickly and easily have it resolved. This is very important when time is ticking down.
This might seem obvious, but adding one more thing to your holiday list can be stressful. Add on top when things go wrong—print quality is sub par, or other issues with the card arise. By utilizing your family photographer as your ordering resource, you can dodge a bullet. Why not lay everything in their capable hands?
Photographers know how which designs work best. Not only can I make the choices for your holiday card a breeze, but the whole process from start to finish! I’ll often put together an idea for them at the viewing session and most of the time, my clients go with my suggestions. Once the order is placed with me, I have a super-fast turnaround: Within 2 days I can have their cards ready, Yes, that’s printed AND delivered!
As a family photographer, I can personally tell you we always have your family’s best interest in mind. By going through your family photographer to order your holiday cards, you won’t be disappointed. We take your beautiful family’s images personally. We always want to make sure your cards look their very best.
Happy Holidays from Julie Kubal Photography!
