F.A.Q.'s Q: Can I print my own holiday cards? A: Yes, you may purchase a digital file specifically for Christmas card reproduction. Each digital file is $75.00 and includes a print release allowing the images to be reprinted for Christmas cards soley, and will have basic touch ups on the file. Additional artwork can be quoted on a per case basis. Please allow 48-72 hours for delivery of the files via email, once payment is received.
