Avoiding rush charges and stressing over deadlines and rush charges starts right now! Here’s a timeline for getting organized while the leaves are still falling and saving time for watching snowflakes drift down and enjoying the holidays with your family.
October 10-24 If you have had a session with us this year this step couldn’t be simpler! Give the studio a call at 201.610.1199, speak with Jennifer or Mario and come in to design your card from your images. Then head to next step!
If you haven’t had your session yet, this is prime time! Call the studio and set your appointment for a session with Mac- Pier A, Willowwood Arboretum or Court Street are all fantastic backdrops for your family image. You will likely be scheduling your session and presentation with Jennifer at the same time to insure that your images are ready in time for cards- this is also a great time to order holiday gifts- prints and albums are wonderful gifts for family and friends.
October 24- November 5th Card orders will need to be sent to our printer to allow for design and proofs. The last day to return proof approvals is November 9th. It can take up to 15 business days to get your proof and another 5 business days to receive your cards. The foreshortened Thanksgiving week takes a bite out of production time so you want to get your orders in as soon as possible!
When ordering holiday cards please be aware that the last day for proof approval is November 9th.
Flat-printed cards require 10 business days for production and 5 business days for delivery. (As an example- proofs approved on November 9th will arrive between December 4th and 6th)
Letterpress or foil printed cards require 15 business days for production and 5 business days for delivery (As an example- proofs approved on November 9th will arrive between December 6th and 10th)
While expedited service is available, we recommend strongly that you use these next weeks of October to work with us to create a beautiful holiday image and card that you will treasure. Please give us a call today at 201.610.1199 to schedule your session.
