Nuts & Bolts: Holiday Custom Request Design Change.

December 16, 2022

Nuts and Bolts – Holiday Custom Request Design Change

We are nearing the tailend of holiday card orders. Last minute shoppers still want the perfect card.  Please be sure to pay attention to your Manage Custom Requests or you could be missing out on sales.
Here is a wonderful example by GCU artist Trudy Wilkerson:
From the shopper:  
Hi There, GORGEOUS card and just wondering if you have this design in “Happy Holidays From All Of Us” instead of “Season’s Greetings” which is more formal? Thanks and LOVE your designs. I am a long time happy repeat customer of your designs 🙂
Original Card:

Resulting Card: 


See this related piece on Leveraging Designs and specifically the link to Image Use Guidelines on the Forum re: Term Variations specifically.

Big holiday kudos to Trudy for the gift of the perfect card!  

Tip: Remember when submitting a new card that is a variation on a previously approved card to make a note in the Notes to Reviewers the pid# that it is based on.  “Based on approved card PID #12345”.  And remember custom requested cards can be set for FastTrack review.  Just leave the reviewer a little note for that too like “for a shopper’s request #14667 ”.
Additionally, we do see a rise in shopper requests for changing the inside verse which of course they can do themselves.  See this tip on how to handle Custom Requests Inside Text.
Here are some other wonderful Holiday Custom Request Design Change examples.

The difference is made in the details!
