msp_gcguide_blog
Did you know you can show our holiday templates with our non-branded online catalog or Greeting Card Guide?  To help you show and sell Press Cards this holiday season, we have a sales guide designed just for you. Our Greeting Card Guide – a non-branded catalog shows all the card options available for Artistic Edge, Flat and Folded press cards, so that you can show your clients the complete collection when they’re choosing their greeting cards.

For the cover, you can choose either the stock image, or add your own image. The back of the catalog also has an area for you to add your logo or studio information.  This catalog shows the front only of each card.  The Greeting Card Guide can be ordered through ROES Plus.

To show your client the entire card and font choices refer to the greeting card section of our unbranded site.  This non-branded website shows the front and back of each card, as well as the inside of all folded press cards. To integrate this site into your own, you can find instructions here.

With over 1.6 billion holiday cards sold each year you definitely don’t want to miss out on your chance to improve your bottom line!

Custom Metal Prints

We have had many requests for custom print sizes.  As always we are more than happy to accommodate your requests.  In this blog post we will show you how to create a custom file for a custom metal print.  In this scenario, we are going to create a 10×18 horizontal size metal print.  Since a 10×18 is not a Full Color standard print size, the rule of thumb is to extend your canvas in Photoshop and order the next standard size up which would be a 10×20 horizontal metal print. The same rule also applies to custom photo prints!

Full Color Custom Metal Prints
First use the crop tool in Photoshop and set your Width and Height to 18in x 10in.

Now that your image is cropped, next you will need to extend your canvas.  Go to Image > Canvas Size.  Set your Width and Height to 20in x 10in.  You may also choose your Anchor point to your liking. Select OK.

Now our canvas has been extended to a 10×20 horizontal size.  Doing so created a white edge on the right.  In this area add Text that says “Trim Here”.

Once your text is added, check your Image Size. Go to Image > Image Size.  Confirm that the Document Size you see is the print size you will need to order.  In this case, a 10×20 horizontal metal print is what we need.  Save your file as a jpeg or tiff and it is now ready to order!
