Nuts and Bolts: Beveled / Shadow Text.

July 12, 2019


Nuts & Bolts – Beveled / Shadow Text


You may see the following comment / request from the review team:

Please remove or significantly reduce the shadow and/or beveled effects on the text and/or elements, which are excessive and do not balance with the style of this design.

Beveling and deep shadow effects on text rarely works on a professional greeting card image. These styles are out-dated and lack the professional polish we look for in new submissions and those cards we keep in the public marketplace.See here on the blog for examples:

Please review and reflect on not only new designs but possibly older cards approved in your storefront that could use a font facelift like these done by Doreen Erhardt of Salon of Art.


The difference is made in the details!
