To save you some time, here are the answers to some of the most common questions:
We always send a low-res email proof for your inspection before we print your cards. If you're going to be on vacation, let us know that you want to save time by having us check your card for you.
Service times are in full business days. So on the Two-Day service you can normally expect to see your proof after two full business days.
Unless otherwise requested your order will be shipped Priority mail with a confirmation receipt. Priority mail will ship to PO boxes as well as street addresses. Most shipments within the U.S. arrive in 2-3 days. Expect significant delays during the three weeks before Christmas.
For faster delivery within the United States, U.S.P.S. Express mail delivers in 1-2 days. (Add an extra day right before Christmas).
Usually U.S.P.S. Global Priority Express is the best value for international shipments. Email us for details for your country.
Regular shipping and handling charges within the US are:
25- 35 cards $ 7.95
40- 80 cards $ 8.95
85-100 cards $ 9.95
105-150 cards $11.35
155-195 cards $13.15
200-240 cards $13.95
We are happy to quote the S&H charge for other amounts if we know how many cards you would like and your zip code.
When mailing your cards to your friends and family in the U.S. you'll only need one first-class stamp even if you include a note or short letter. The post office issues new Christmas designs each October.
We always include the total with all costs including S&H when we email you your proof. Your card is not charged until your cards are approved, printed and ready for shipment.
Although most customers include their credit card number with the order, It's OK if you're uncomfortable sending your credit card number over the Internet. Just give us a call at (701) 258-9225 between 10am-9pm CST weekdays after you see your proof. A staff member will be here Saturday and Sunday afternoons as well
If you are taking a
digital photo for your greeting card, the .jpg file format is just fine.
Set your camera to its highest resolution setting. If your camera offers
quality options, use the highest quality/largest file size/lowest compression
Your picture will be
cropped to standard 4x6 proportions (5x7 proportions for Premium cards).
In other words, the longest size will be 1.5 times as long as the shorter
If you enjoy
manipulating images with programs like PhotoShop, you're welcome to play with
your image before sending it. However, unless you have a color-calibrated
monitor, it's better if we touch up the color and density here at The Photo
Some may want to know that we print at 400 ppi in sRGB color space on a Noritsu 2901. If this paragraph makes no sense to you, thatís fine. We have the digital photo experts so you can worry about other stuff, like having a life.
If you cannot recall the name of the design you wanted, here are links to the designs.

Most customers like the save themselves from finger cramps by adding personalized text, only $9 for the entire order. If you have too much to say for the space, we just make the text smaller. We'll send a proof so you can see how it looks before we print your cards.
Let me know if
there's anything else I can do to help.
