Q So what exactly are photo invitations?
A Photo Invitations
are unique invitations and announcements processed just
like a photograph at one of Central Texas's finest processing
centers in Waco.
This is the same photo lab the the professional photographers
use You see, I have combined the printing industry with
photography. I create photo card just like a photograph
but I can add various backgrounds and text with two
different sizes (4x6 and 5x7) for the invitations &
Also available are our business cards which have the
same quality as our invitations.
I will image in your photo and add the text and any
special logos or clipart. You may submit a photograph,
magazine photo, or even color copy.
Please note that you are in complete control on how
you wish to have your invitation designed. If there
is a particular background that you wish to have please
specify and I will create it for you. I will contact
you if there is a problem with your background requested.
Also if you have seen an invitation with a particular
design please send it to me and I will recreate it for
you at no additional charge.
So what is the price and long does it take to
make? Also what type of payment do you accept?
A The prices start
at 95¢ea. on the 4x6 size but I also have specials on
ordering in sets of different items.
Currently you can order 25 4x6 size for $19.95 and 50
4x6 size for $34.95.More specials will be added so please
continue to check for updates.
I can offer a low price because I do all of the designing
and have contracted with a local photo lab here in Central
Texas for a special pricing and pass the savings on

I noticed in your samples that some had more than one
photo. Is this an extra charge and will I get my photos
A You can
add up to 4 photos at no extra charge. You really don't
want to overcrowd your card with photos so we feel that
no more than 4 will give it a nice look without looking
to overcrowded. Also you will receive all of your photos
back unharmed if you mail them directly. If you have
your photos on a disk, digital camera or hard drive
you can upload them from the Online
Order Form. If you decide to mail
them in I ask that you try and send a photo no smaller
than a wallet size and no bigger than an 8x10. I am
also able to do any special cropping or even eliminate
the background of your original photo. Just indicated
any special instructions when sending your order.
I now offer a great new product for people who love
to collect photos of friends and family members but
seem to have to make space for them. I will image up
to 10 photos on an 8x10. You can also add one line of
text under each photo at no additional charge. This
collage is only $7.95. Order
Can I e-mail in my photos that I scanned with my scanner
or took with my digital camera?
A Most photos
that have been taken with a digital camera can be used.
Just make sure your settings are on the best quality
feature. As for scanned photos we asked that you scan
the photo with the highest resolution. Please save as
a jpeg or tiff file uncompressed. I will contact you
if there is a problem with your photo. If you
are paying by check or money order please notify me
after you have uploaded your photo from Online
Order Form and indicate the date you will be mailing
in your payment. If you are paying by credit card you
can use our shopping cart to process your payment or

Since you do announcements and invitations do you offer
any other related services such as napkins, programs,
A I do offer
photo name cards that fit inside a conventional graduation
announcement. I am also able to design digital enlargements

on the enlargement services.

any type of guarantee on your product?

your money and purchase the same item from one of
mycompetitors.I challenge you to ask
any other company to make this claim.. I want you

from so with this challenge I am guaranteed no
I will design a samples free of charge. You are under

What about copyrighted photos?
This question comes up quite often. We have worked closely
with Wal-Mart, Sears, and Olan Mill studios. We currently
have a release from them indicating it is ok to use
their photos for our invitations. I recommend that you
first contact the studio and let them know what you
wish to do. If the studio is no longer in business or
the photo is at least 20 years old, some of the copyright
laws do not apply. If you still have a problem getting
a release let me know and I will do everything in my
power to get the release for you.
Can I send in my own background or clipart?
A Yes you can. We
will be more than happy to use any background or clipart
you have. Just indicate the layout you wish to create
and we will do the rest. Make sure that it is of good
quality and all will be returned unharmed.
Also feel free to use any of our stock backgrounds.
If you do not see anything you like just let us know
and we will try to find it for you at no extra charge.
We only put a limited number of them up on our site
so we won't overwhelm you with choices. Our
