Stampin’ Up! has been trying to think outside the box—well, the rectangle that is. And they’ve found a great alternative to the plain postcard—shaped postcards! They are happy to introduce you to some new 5″ x 7″ and 7″ x 5″ professional print options: the Scallop and Artisan Postcards*.
Gorgeous, right? Just update your software, and you’ll have access to these new shape options—perfect for wedding invitations, birth announcements, holiday cards, or every day greetings.
After you update the software, you can open up a 5″ x 7″ or 7″ x 5″ postcard, then go to View > Bleed Areas and choose either of the new options: Artisan Shaped Postcard or Scallop Shaped Postcard. Once you are ready to order your shaped postcard, just go to Project > Order > Card. The bleed area that you selected while designing your card will be the default option in the ordering process. Want to check out the other shape? No problem, just use the drop down and change it.
Don’t forget, the postcards are double-sided, so they’ll print on the back for you too. You’ll also notice a new bleed area in your menu so that you can design your card with the end result in mind. Then, when you’re ready to order, just select the shape you want in the ordering options.
Cards start at $2.25 US and regular bulk discounts apply. Click here (US) for more information.
So go on, shape up those postcards.
I think I need to plan a party just so I can use these options soon! Diana
