Design Spotlight: Michael Peychich

November 27, 2013

Our Design Spotlight falls on Michael Peychich of MGP Photography – lovely card, Michael!


“Happy Birthday, Pink Roses” has turned out to be my best selling card that I have designed so far. It is also the first card I had to show how important it was to have specific categories to increase sales. I had only a few cards in my store and was of the belief I needed to first populate my store with general categories. This is the first card I decided to work on a series such as specific age. Wow, sales started coming in on a regular basis and that was an encouragement to me.

Most of my cards are designed with my own photography and worked on in Photoshop for the boarders and backdrops. The Pink rose was shot originally with a white background but I chose to alter it.

Another card that I used Photoshop to take a heart shaped portion of a couple enjoying a sunset, then choosing two shades from the image created a background to highlight the heart.

I have the most difficulties writing the verses to help I usually just try to think about would want to say to my wife or other family member. Family thinks it is funny that I am writing card verse when most of the time I do not have much to say.

    Excellent bits of advice, Michael … first of all, writing the verse from your own heart as if you’re talking to your own loved one, and secondly that you’ve had such great luck with very specific categories. Thanks for the tips!!!! Much appreciated … OH … and both cards are truly beautiful!!!!
