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!
