4. Work with a friendly, creative, personal designer to make the card exactly what you want. We'll only print after you say "Yes, that's it!"

modifications: 

our philosophy:

We're designers. Let us design. You're the client. Let us serve you. We don't think this should be stressful.

So, we don't ask you to place your photos and crop them or to type out your greetings. We don't ask you to make the card for us.

Once you order we'll be in contact with you and you'll start working with us to make the perfect card. 

Fast.  

modifications: 

Every cards has them, even if it's just changing names. You are welcome to put them in the notes field during checkout or just let us know via email once we start talking to you about your order.  

photos:

Email the photos to photos@mangoink.com with your order number as the subject.   

customizations:  

Color changes, font changes, and text changes are on us. We'll also crop photos and fit them as we see best. You are welcome to put these in the notes field during checkout or, again, just let us know as we start talking.  

If you want a fully custom card (a new design, different than anything we have already) we charge $75/hour with a minimum 1 hour charge.  

the options:

size: 

5 inches by 7 inches. Full bleed. Images takes up the entire card on both sides. 

4 inches by 5.5 inches.  Full bleed. Images takes up the entire card on both sides. 

5 inches by 5 inches.  Full bleed. Images takes up the entire card on both sides. 

type: 

Flat. The standard flat card, printed on front and back.

Folded. A card you "open", printed on the inside/outside, front/back.  Since on most designs there isn't an example, we will of course design it for you and send proofs of inside and outside of the card.

paper: 

130 pound smooth. paper. The 130 refers to the weight of the paper. A heavier weight means the paper is actually heavier, usually thicker. This paper is a smooth (not matte) paper and prints beautifully. It also feels really nice in the hands. See this blog post comparing this paper and how fabulous it is.

110 matte green. As it's a lighter weight, it's not going to be as thick but it is 100% recycled paper and does come with a nice matte finish. 

38 point double thick savoy cotton. Points are another way to measure the thickness of paper and are a little more precise. Trust us, this paper is unbelievable. It's incredibly heavy and thick and feels absolutely beautiful. (Turn around times are a little longer for this paper) Note: round corners are not available on this product. Select square corners before adding to your cart.

corners: 

Square. An actual corner.  

Rounded. The corner is shaved and rounded off for a nice little touch.  

rounded corners vs square corners

Envelopes:

Each card comes with a crisp white, square flap envelope. 

But sometimes you want colored envelopes, and even a fun liner.

And sometimes you still want white, BUT you want a fun "built in" liner that is fully customizable to match your card design (this one requires zero assembly, it's ready to go. We can even use a photo for the liner. They are so much fun!

We have all these options and love them all.
