A Closer Look at our Hot Card of the Week

This week's Hot Card comes from the lovely ladies of Paper Caper, California located in Burlingame. The inspiration for the 40th birthday party was Studio 54 which is still pretty swanky in itself.  We can imagine people showing up and presenting this invitation at the door to gain entrance!



The invitation is a 5.25 x 5.25 with Gold Metallic paper plied to Night paper with the text printed in silver lithography. The numbers were hand drawn and die-cut from the Night layer. We're pretty sure "Disco Sally" would approve!

LV 101 – Registrar’s Office

Why we’re so insistent about order forms.

At Luscious Verde, our top priority is to provide you with an incredible product in a timeframe that puts the industry standard to shame. And our commitment to exceptional speed and quality doesn’t only apply to finished product. We strive to make the proofing process quick and painless as well. 

But with over 300 retailers nationwide, it would be impossible to keep up our speed and accuracy without some sort of uniform process. For this reason we must insist that all orders be placed using a Luscious Verde order form. It helps our designers find the information they need quickly and helps you make sure you’ve covered all relevant details, like liners, paper images, eyelets or any of our other fabulous embellishments. It also helps us get you your proofs as quickly as possible.

The complexity of our product and volume of orders we receive are also the reasons why we must have all reproof and pricing requests submitted in writing. There are simply too many variables that can get lost, forgotten or misunderstood over the phone. With a written request we--and you--have documentation of exactly what was requested so that everyone is on the same page.

We know filling out an order form can occasionally take a little extra time, but by following these guidelines, you can help us expedite the proofing process for everyone and prevent costly reproofs due to miscommunication. The time and money you save will be well worth the effort!

If you don’t have an order form on hand, they are always available to download at www.lusciousverde.com/retailers

The super cute main invitation is a 6.25 two layer with a custom cut horseshoe party card attached to the back with a silver grommet. The party card swings up revealing all of the party information. Included in the set was a fuchsia envelope and fuchsia response postcard. Super fun all the way around!

LV 101: Photography

Adding a photograph to your cards is one of the simplest ways to truly customize your Luscious Verde stationery. Generally, the best way to do this is to order professionally printed photos and send them to us to mount. You can also order loose sheets of phototape and adhere your picture yourself. But when you want to do something really unique, like print a full-bleed photo with knocked-out text or a photo on a custom shaped card, you can rely on Luscious Verde to print stunning digital photos from a file you send us. When LV prints your photos you have two options:

Photo White printing is done with our multi-color digital press on our Photo White paper. It’s a relatively inexpensive way to print gorgeous digital photos directly onto your cards. There is no additional charge for this process (however bleed fees or second-run printing charges may apply, depending on your design).

Gallery printing is a relatively new printing process at Luscious Verde that offers premium print quality on premium Gallery White paper. A special high-definition photo printer produces photos with superior detail and vibrant colors. Due to the cost of the special Gallery White paper and the time consuming nature of the process, there is an upcharge for gallery printing, but the results are well worth the cost!

For any photos submitted to Luscious Verde, the file should be at least 300 dpi at the size you intend to print and should not exceed 6MB.


Now you’re up to speed on our photo printing processes! Let’s see those smiling faces!

Cuteness Overload

It's Hot Card of the Week time!

Today's Hot Card comes from the gorgeous store, Papel New York located in Brooklyn. The highly custom birth announcement focuses on of course, boxing. We designed the special boxing bag and boxing glove printed liner. The boxing bag is created from four pieces of paper and uses thermography ink for the text and art.  The photo with the tiny boxing gloves is so cute we can't get enough of it!
