Another Christmas Card

I've completed another Christmas card template that I hope to offer clients.

I'm kind of a tradionalist, green and red colors with Christmas Trees or snowflakes, a church or snow covered landscape when it comes to the holidays. But I've seen where more and more folks want something a little different. In fact browns and grays have become in vogue. I think black and white photography works really well with these themes and will hopefully be a success at the studio.

So I decided to create a card that is less traditional, and reflects more of these colors. The cool thing is that I can remove certain layers and still have a functioning non-Christmas card that I can offer throughout the year.

Christmas Cards From High Noon Photography

Wow, its been too long since I've been here.

I recently decided to put down the camera and develop new Christmas Card templates.
This time of year can get busy with Christmas Portraits and Family Photography and I wanted some new looks for clients in El Paso and Las Cruces.

I'm no graphic artist, but its fun to stretch yourself, plus save a couple hundred bucks from not buying templates. So far I've only designed one look. It has several combinations of colors or messages to choose from -- hopefully I can knock out a few more in the coming days.

I've decided to also develop a new campaign that can save folks money and still get them beautifully customized cards. I probably will limit this to studio work at High Noon Photography... more details to come.

Anyway, here is a look at the first mock ups. Its easy to change out the text and to even further personalize the look for clients. The pics show the Red, Gold and Green tri-fold cards that are 5x7 and horizontal. I also did the workup for the inside elements and displaying what that looks like in the red card version.
