I wanted to answer some of your questions regarding the holiday card kit. Missed what I’m talking about? Look at the post just below this one for pictures of my new holiday card KOTM (kit of the month).
Q: How much is the kit?
A: $29.99 (value over $125 in comparable product)
Q: When is it available to pre-order?
A: RIGHT NOW! Click HERE to go there in a jiffy.
Q: When will the kits begin shipping?
A: The first week of November.
Q: Can you ship internationally?
A: Yes, we will be taking international orders. If you are one of these customers, call 386-597-4387. Orders will be shipped via DHL.
Q: How many cards are in a kit?
A: 30 (plus a bunch of “bonus” cards for mailing cd’s and thank-you notes, etc.)
Q: What are the dimensions of the main cards?
A: Folded, the card measures 4″ x 9″.
Q: Can I put a 4″ x 6″ picture inside the card?
A: Yes. You’ll just need to do a quick trim on one edge of your photo so it fits well inside the card.
Q: Will one postage stamp be enough to mail my cards?
A: Yes. I have even double-checked this myself this week. I mailed some cards with a standard postage stamp and they arrived just fine. Obviously if you decide to include a bunch of extra stuff in your cards, making them bulkier/heavier, that may require extra postage. When I did my test-run, I included the card, the embellished insert, the newsletter, and a photo. What I consider to be the “standard package” with this card design.
Q: What is the cut-out circle on the cards for?
A: It’s just for fun. It peeks through to the inside, where you’ll include an embellished insert from the kit (if you want). It will be an epoxy sticker in that spot. This will make more sense when I post my video clip in the next few days.
Q: Is the year printed on the card, or will I be able to use these next year (or another year)?
A: 2008 is not printed anywhere, but there’s a cute place to include the date, which I’ll share with you in the video. So yes, you can use these cards another year if you don’t send them this year.
Q: Your holiday card kit from last year involved brads & chipboard, which added to the thickness of the cards. Will it be the same with this kit?
A: Nope. I avoided the bulky factor.
Q: Are the envelopes going to require tape or adhesive?
A: Lick & stick, baby! No need to use tape or anything. Tip: As with any envelope, just be sure you lick all the way to the edges. You know how sometimes, if you don’t do that, the corner will rip? Yeah. So just be sure to get full coverage. : )
