Each year Matt and I make a solemn vow to one another…..Let’s not make this holiday season seem as crazy as last! For me, that would entail not staying up until 2am each morning designing holiday cards. Sooo….this season I had a grand plan. I would hire a graphic designer to make a bunch of templates that clients could choose from for their cards. Then I would plug and chug. Sounds reasonable, most other photographers I know employ this tactic.
First, I was just too type A and controlling to send out all the work to a graphic designer. So I made many of my own templates. That took weeks. Next, I just could not adhere to them! Clients would choose one, then when it was time to start plugging and chugging, well I just kept on going. And going. The result? What seems like 100’s of custom designed, no 2 are alike, gorgeous holiday cards.
Sleepless or not, I just love them. Now, if I could only come up with a grander idea for our OWN card. (last year, they were back from the printer and in the mail on December 23. Nice!)
NEXT year, we will try that vow again….
