Greeting Cards

What sort of paper types do you have for greeting cards?

Sketch carries a few different paper types for greeting cards. I’m always looking to experiment with new brands, but so far, I really like the Inkpress Duo Matte 80 cards. Sometimes I use Epson Enhanced Matte for cards as well.

Inkpress Duo Matte 80, 5″x7
Moab Lasal 235 gsm Photo Matte 5″x7″
Red River 60lb Polar White, 5″x7″
Red River Aurora Natural 250, 5″x7″ (NOTE: These cost $8.50 each due to paper expense)
Red River 60lb. Pecos River Gloss, 5″x7″

What is the price per card and minimum order? Do they come with envelopes?

For 5″x7″ printed greeting cards, the price is $4.50 per card. A minimum order of 5 cards per design or artwork is needed. Red River Aurora Natural 250 cost $8.50 per card. Yes, cards come with envelopes. Clear bags are an extra $0.50 cents if you need them! Sometimes I can accomodate one-offs for proofing purposes – please contact me first.

Where can I upload my image?

Send me your images via Google Drive or Drop box and I will create the file in Photoshop. If you require text on the backside of the card, please send that to me too. I will proof your card before printing via sending you a JPG or PDF file for viewing. If you want to do the digital work yourself, please send me a 7″x10″ 300dpi PSD, TIFF, PDF or JPG of the card ready for printing.
