Why Your Photographer Should Design Your Announcements and Cards
Many potential clients tell themselves they will buy their favorite photos and make their own announcements or cards. I discourage this for many reasons. Let me explain.
The first reason is that photos do not always work with the design you like. Say the design calls for a circle photo. Well, your landscape family photo won't fit in a circle. Heads will get cut off. But if you love the design, your photographer can make the photo work. We have ways of editing the photo to change the proportions to fit any shape.
Second - Quality. Quality announcements make a statement. 4x6 glossy prints are inexpensive, but they look it. Press printed boutique style cards and announcements have the look and feel of quality.
Third - Options!!! Your Photographer (aka: Chantel Hunt Photography) can order your cards in a variety of shapes and sizes. The card stock options are numerous, and even the envelopes you choose will make an impact. From formal paper options, to pre-printed return addresses. The options are enormous.
Forth - Professional service and advice. When trying to design and print your own cards, the final outcome is hard to predict. When you order your cards through Chantel Hunt Photography, I am there with samples, and advice to help you with the numerous choices.
Lastly - Time Savings. Your time is invaluable, and having Chantel Hunt Photography design your cards, and assisting with all the choices saves you time and energy. You get the professional look you want in just a short consultation. Your proof(s) will be in your inbox to review at your convenience.

The foil accents on the card below, really accents the boutique feel of this card. It was printed in a soft touch paper complete with an art style paper envelope. Talk about a classy announcement!
