Christmas Cards 2012

After many conversations with others about Christmas Cards especially with my friend who is in the business as well, we wanted to inform you all about Shutterfly! We all know how much you all love it! However, why not help support a local business, a friend and family member....Beware what you are about to read may surprise you!!!!

Expressions By Em Christmas Cards... Beware this may surprise you!

Many people find that ordering their Christmas cards through a site like Shutterfly is more economical. I decided to do a little price comparison on Shutterfly’s product that is most similar to the product I offer. Below is what I found out…Beware! This will surprise you!

Shutterfly 5x7 Design with 3 Photos  - Matte White with White Envelopes
On Sale Price - $1.51/card (50-74 cards)
                         $1.67/card (25-49 cards)

70 Cards - $105.70 (subtotal)
Address Printing - $0.39/card - $27.30

Expressions by Em 5x7 Design with 3 Photos – Pearlized Paper with Envelope Color Choices (pearlized metallic) in Red, Green, Silver, Pearlized White

Now some of you may be thinking things like “well I have free shipping codes and they are offering me 20% off, etc.” If you are a returning client you automatically receive 10% off plus any specials that we are offering. Expressions by Em then offers you the 10% off returning client deal plus 10 free cards if ordered by a specific date! How’s that for deals?!

Here’s the beauty of using Expressions by Em than an online site. Although convenience is huge, Expressions by Em makes sure that ordering through her is convenient. You still get an electronic proof and you are now able to customize any design that she has or that you have seen you love. Customization is huge with Expressions by Em because she wants your Christmas card to reflect you and your family’s personalities which includes custom greetings, fonts, colors, etc! All the customizations and changes are FREE! You can make as many changes as you want once we start the proofing process!!! You really do nothing when it comes to your cards except send us your list of contacts, pick your designs, decide what changes you want and send us your photos! We do the rest!!!!

Still think it makes more sense to go through Shutterfly?

New Products

We're getting ready for the 2013 year and we've decided to start offering new products! A complete line will be listed soon but we thought we'd get the ball rolling and start pinning some of our new stuff! Our goal is try to post a new photo of a new item every day however we are probably being too optimistic with a 7 month old baby moving around the house! So look for new stuff on our blog and on Pinterest every week!

For mother's day for my Mom, I decided to give her a digital camera case (which she uses for her cash and change) with some photos of her new grandbaby Mia. It turns out that this simple project is something everyone loves! It has so many different uses than just a camera case or "wallet". So we're giving you all the opportunity to order these as well!

Please inquire for pricing at but we can create a collage of photos for you, single photos on each side, etc. The sky's the limit! We can take your snap shots from your own camera or phone too! We think you'll be amazed at our low prices!!! These will make great gifts for those stocking stuffers!!!!

** The photos used in these samples were taken by Photography by Becca

More products coming soon. and Happy Pinning! :)

Maternity Leave

Just a friendly reminder that my husband and I are expecting our first baby March 22. Now we obviously aren't sure if our new little bundle of joy will be early or late, however whenever I do go into labor to deliver, I will let you all know. At that time, once I go into labor I plan to take about 2 full weeks off of not replying to emails, etc of actual maternity leave. However I do have a Blackberry so I will still be seeing all emails that come through. I do plan to begin working after that 2 week mark and begin replying to emails after I re-acclamate my life with this new baby. Should there be anything urgent or pressing in that two week mark please don't hesitate to call.

Any questions let me know. I will be sure to let you know once I am out of the office as well as when I plan to return but again I plan to return working and replying to emails after the first two weeks. Please know that I plan to continue working up until I have this baby so please don't hesitate to contact me for projects, etc! This note is just a reminder of what is to come towards the end of March.

Please note that I will do everything I can do to make sure all loose ends are tied up for any projects we have to meet all deadlines for you.

Thanks again! I appreciate your business more than you know!
