Custom Design Process

What is involved in creating a custom designed pop-up card, and how does the process work? We have been specializing in Custom Pop-Ups for years, and we think we have the pop-up process as streamlined as it gets. Here’s how it goes…

STEP 1: WE CONSULT

First, let’s brainstorm your ideas. Tell us what sort of Custom Design you have in mind. How do you envision its use? What items do you want to feature and what else should be incorporated as background material? What feeling do you want to create? What colors do you think would work best?

Which card in our Gallery is closest to what you want?

We will listen carefully and make recommendations to capture your vision as closely as possible in your custom card. You decide whether you want an illustrated card, or a card made up of a montage of your photos. Together, we’ll decide what reference materials we will need in order to build your cards. Also, we’ll give you an email to confirm that we say YES or NO before doing next steps.

STEP 2: YOU COLLECT

Next step—you collect your reference materials including logos, text, photos you want us to use etc.  These materials may include photos, your logo, PDF’s of other work you have done… whatever you like! You can also include the text you want on the front and back cover of your cards. The more information we have on your company, the better we can match you and your Custom Designs. Most clients use email/ Dropbox to send those files  to us.

At this stage we will also ask you to mail your deposit check (we require a 100% deposit for all custom projects). This fee will be refunded base on your final quantity per order as our policy. Pls get in touch with us to get the promotions every month.

STEP 3: WE CONFIRM AND CREATE

When we receive your files, we will send an email to you to review the preliminary layout and composition for your cards.

Next, we’ll assign a designer to your project and, a week or so after we receive your materials, we’ll provide you with our artist’s mock-up design.

Here is your chance to critique! Pass it around, get feedback, and let us know what you love, and what could be better, so that we can fine-tune the design.

STEP 4: WE CORRECT

Our designers will incorporate your feedback into their final design, and then we’ll supply you with a final proof by photos/ original cards if you want.

STEP 5: POP-UP PRODUCTION

Once you are happy with the design for your pop-up card, we will handle all the production issues and then ship to you as other shipments.
Easy, right? Maybe even lots of fun! Tell us about your project so that we can give you a Quick Note. Or let us send you some samples of our own Pop-Up Cards!
