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.

The difference is made in the details!
