THE KGD Christmas Shop FAQ's

How does this work?

I have created premade photo card designs. You choose the design you like and purchase it. Upon purchase, I will email you directions within 24 hours. You provide me with a high resolution photo and the family name you would like on your card design. Once I have received your information, I then customize the design you purchased with your photo and name and email you a proof within 48 hours. Upon proof approval you will receive a high resolution of your customized card design. From there you can have your cards printed, print them yourself, use them in an email newsletter, on your blog or social media channels, etc.

Can I have more than one photo on my card?
Yes, I provide a few card options with more than one photo.

Can I see what my card will look like before you complete it?
Of course. I send you a proof for your approval before the design is completed. I want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. You are allowed up to two edits for your card design. Please keep in mind I do not change the colors, fonts, layouts of these designs. The only customizable parts are your photo(s) and name(s). If you have purchased a back option with text, you also will be able to customize the text as well.

Can you edit my photo?
I do not provide photo editing. Your photographer is responsible for those, and most photographers do not allow outside editing to the photos they provide. If you need your photo edited, please have your photographer do so before submitting your photo.

Do you offer custom card designs? 
We have a few custom card spots available this year. For more information, email us at and we'll get back to you promptly.

How long will you be accepting orders?
The KGD Christmas Shop is open November 1, 2018 – December 14, 2018. It’s best to get your card design completed as soon as possible so you are able to have them printed and mailed in time. The USPS recommends having your holiday cards mailed by the second week in December.

Can I buy a blank card design and add my own photo and text?
I’m sorry but I am not offering design templates. I want to create a card you will be happy with though, so please consider us!

Do you print the cards?
I do not offer printing services for the card designs.

Where do I have my cards printed? 
I personally am a huge fan of I think for the price you pay, you receive excellent quality. I am happy to guide you through the printing process if you choose to go through them. You can also have your cards printed wherever you like – Costco, Walgreens, an online printing company, a local printing company.

What are the card designs with digital paper?
These card designs come with a coordinating digital scrapbook paper that can be used on the back side of your card. It’s an extra option to add design on the back of your card rather than it being blank.

Can I share my card design on social media?
Yes! I created these designs so you can send your holiday wishes to friends and family. Please feel free to share it on your blog, facebook, instagram, etc. The only thing I ask my customers is to remember is all that artwork and designs belong to Katygirl Designs and may not be sold or edited.
