Custom tri-fold holiday photo cards with gold foil

We worked with our friends at Union Street Papery to create these darling tri-fold holiday cards for the Spangler family. The tri-fold card features digital printing on both the front and the back, and each panel highlights a different photograph. Gold matte foil was included to make the initial greeting stand out, and we created custom envelope liners featuring the reindeer pattern from our Merry gift wrap to add some extra holiday cheer.

Custom holiday photo cards with red shine foil

We love creating custom holiday cards and seeing all of the festive patterns and motifs come through the shop, but we’re always especially honored to print holiday cards for our Smock dealers. Last year we worked with Sarah Gallante, owner of Pom Paperie in Valencia, California, to create her family’s custom holiday cards. The front of the card featured a group photo of Sarah, her husband, her children, and of course their family dog Chibi in front of the most picturesque mountain scene. The cards also featured a “be merry” message with the year and family name in red shine foil on the front, while the backside of the card showcased individual portraits and an update on each family member. Confetti patterned envelope liners in various shades of red, blue, and gray tied all of the colors from the digitally printed cards together and made for a fun finish!

Holiday photo cards with Santa Claus envelope liners

Our friends at  The Inviting Place helped the Vawter family create these chic custom holiday photo cards using different elements from our design library. A black and white family photograph on the front of the card was accented by red foil stamped design motifs from our Merci Holiday card, while the reverse side of the card pairs a letterpress printed border with a second digitally printed photograph. Our vintage Santa Claus print was used to create a festive envelope liner to finish off the cards.

Cute custom holiday photo cards

How cute are these custom holiday photo cards that we created in collaboration with our friends at Rugg Road Paper Company?! Red shine foil adds a festive, holiday feel and coordinates perfectly with the red hats featured in the family photos throughout this folded card. We love how they shared highlights from their Disney vacation on the backside of the card, and the red foil stamped envelope liners made for a gorgeous finish!

Custom Photo New Year’s Cards

We worked with The Write Touch on these heartwarming New Year’s cards. The cards featured two components: a digitally printed photo card with tawny matte foil stamping and navy letterpress back patterning, and a letterpress and foil stamped die-cut tag. The two pieces were held together with a shiny gold grommet and dark indigo ribbon. Navy pearl patterned envelopes added a nice finishing touch to the set, which paid tribute to a beloved pet.

Check this one out — the envelope liner (geneva pattern) + backing (seneca pattern), both in red, just made us swoon. What a cool combination.
