Wanted Cards – Retirement K9 Unit / Police Dog
 
Police dogs risk their lives to help and protect law enforcement personnel. Their varied duties include locating criminals, searching for explosives and drugs, search and rescue, and sniffing out crime scene evidence.  

 

When their years of active service come to an end, just like people, it’s time for retirement. It’s a day that can be quite sentimental for the dog’s coworkers, department and handler.  There is often a public retirement ceremony for the community.
Please consider creating cards for this new category:
NOTE: consider photo cards, custom front text cards and as not all police dogs are German Shepherds, choices of other breeds.

Nuts and Bolts: Music Themed Cards.

Nuts & Bolts – Music Themed Cards

 

Shopping on the internet is so convenient, but it can be tricky.  You have to rely on product photos, item descriptions, measurements, and reviews to make sure you know exactly what to expect. And sometimes what you see, or think you see, is not what you get.

 

It may seem that GCU goes overboard describing elements of a card’s design, but there is good cause for it. Here is another example. Quite often a music themed greeting card has been assumed by the shopper to be a musical card that actually plays music. Musical cards are a thing so it’s not so far fetched but they are not offered on GCU.

 

So if you have a music themed card (song lyrics or characters that look like or are described to be “singing”) please be very clear in your Artist’s Notes with a statement like this: “This is NOT a musical card, it does NOT play music”.  This is especially important if you use musical notes in your design as shown below.
Please see this related helpful post on Don’t Mean to Deceive.

 

 

The difference is made in the details!

Wanted New Cards: Birthday Photo Cards for My Twin.

Wanted Cards – Birthday Photo Cards for My Twin

 

These categories could use some non-age specific photo card designs.
My Twin Sister or My Twin Brother photo cards (not age specific) as well as for general birthday photo cards for My Twin.

 

 

The second fitting catch-all category for these cards would be:
Collections » Photo Cards / Your Picture Here » Birthday
Remember twins come in different combinations that can be addressed in the design or verse – fraternal or identical, twin sisters, twin brothers, twin brother & sister.
