Nuts & Bolts: Notes to Reviewer (re-run)

May 18, 2018

Nuts & Bolts – Notes to Reviewer (re-run)
 
The best way to communicate with the review team re: specific card submissions is via the Notes to Reviewer field.

 

Here are some helpful links on the Notes to Reviewer field originally posted October 2012
Comments in this field can only be created at the time of card creation and submission and then again only when the card is returned to you for edits at which time we advise you to append your notes so the original notes are preserved.

 

Returned for Edits cards will contain this reminder:
When you resubmit your card please be sure to append any important notes in the Notes to Reviewer field.  Add your new comments to the end and do NOT remove any prior notes. 

 

Note: if you’ve missed the opportunity to include an important note with your card submission, it is best to reply to the related card review email.  If your communication has to do with a card that you do not have a card review email for, or your topic is general and not card specific then the best route is to email the card review team at cardreview@gcuniverse.com   Be sure to include in your email your artist id number and any relevant product id numbers.

 

The difference is made in the details!

Wanted Cards – Becoming Parents (Gay / Lesbian)

 

Becoming parents is one of the most exciting times in a couple’s life!  Especially in a non-traditional family where the steps to having a child may be somewhat non-traditional.

 

Please consider creating congratulations on becoming parents cards for lesbian and gay couples.

Occasions >> Congratulations >> Becoming Parents >> Gay / Lesbian

 

Please consider creating gender neutral designs as well as designs for a baby girl and baby boy also multiples (twins, triplets, etc.).

 

We’d like you to create at least one card for these categories using the Stock Cards function (Bigstock) or your own graphic designs.

Remember, when you’re submitting your new card, add a little note about the intended category in your Notes to Reviewers. Be inventive,  be clever, be creative. Go for it!

Rainbow Connection: How does Color make you Feel?

May 15, 2018

Thelogocompany.net put together an interesting little chart on the emotions behind color choices (see below, click for larger view). Next time you’re designing cards, think about the emotions you want to convey, not just what color suits you at the moment. Perhaps you’ll give your design some additional punch which results in more attention from shoppers and more sales!

For additional in-depth information, read The Meanings Behind Colors.
