More ways to save!

I just found that artscow.com is offering 100 free 4x6 prints AND 50 free 5x7 prints when you register a new account.  150 cards for $0.08 each?

I will create your custom designed 5x7 card for $12 (buy now! prices go up to $15 on December 1st!) and for FREE will also make the same card into a 4x6 for you if you'd like to take advantage of artscow.com's offer!

What a deal!

EDIT 11.29.09 - You actually get 1200 free prints through artscow.com!  Wow!  I misunderstood.  Apparently the 11 free 4x6 and 50 free 5x7 is what you are allowed monthly, up to 1200 free prints total.  Click here!

100 holiday cards for $0.12 each!!

The photo sharing website, SeeHere.com, is offering 100 free 4x6 prints when you sign up for an account!  Talk about saving a bundle on holiday cards this year!  You can purchase your custom designed 4x6 digital file from Four Harp Designs for as low as $12 and print them through SeeHere.com for free!  Essentially, all you will pay for is the digital file, and the cost of envelopes and stamps.  Wow!

My standard files are for 5x7 printing, so if you are planning to take advantage of this HUGE savings please let me at the time of purchase that you would like your card to be designed for 4x6 prints.

What a fabuLESS way to kick-off the holiday season!

tricks of the trade

Just wanted to share a little-known secret.
It's an Adobe site that allows you to create, save and download color themes.  I use this site often when trying to match colors for my photo cards.  I can also see themes that others have created - and those color themes often inspire new ideas in me.  I could spend hours on this site!

A few examples of cards I created based on color themes I've found or designed on Kuler:

So for all you designers and graphic artists out there that haven't already discovered Kuler, go have fun!
