Arrival times vary based on the items you order. Expect off-the-shelf items, such as boxed sets, in 3-5 business days, or in 48 hours if picking up.
Due to their tailored-to-you nature, personalized collection items, such as baby announcements, holiday cards, stationery and wedding invitations, require a more involved multistep process:
- Depending on the complexity of the design, you will receive a digital proof within 2-7 business days of placing your order. If you request a revision to your proof, each round of revisions takes an additional 1-2 business days.
- Production only begins once you have given us your final approval. Depending on the predetermined or chosen printing method, production takes 10-20 business days.
- We ship your order via the option you select at checkout. If picking up, you will receive an email notification when your order is ready.

Custom art is exactly what it sounds like; an illustration or detail that is customized to you! In our collection, you can find options that include a custom illustration of your home or family, or smaller touches like custom icons that represent your momentous year. Still confused? Visit our blog on the anatomy of a holiday card for more details!
If you’re interested in an illustration style that you don’t see offered in our collection or want even more options for customization, you can create a completely custom card with us! Please fill out <this form> and a member of our account management team will be in touch within 1-2 business days.
Pricing for a custom holiday card starts at $5000 for 100 cards.
A card greeting acts like the headline of your card. This can be a classic seasonal greeting or a more whimsical message! Not all cards have the option to change the greeting. If you see a card you love, but you want a different greeting, please reach out to inquire about a custom holiday card.
A card sign-off is a secondary greeting, separate from the main greeting of your card and different from your family names. Not all cards include a sign-off. If your card includes sign-off text, you will have the option to choose your sign-off while choosing your card options.
Foil stamping is a printing method that uses a heated plate to adhere a very thin layer of foil to a surface. It's extremely versatile and can be used on a wide range of materials.
In our holiday collection, we only offer gold foil, but foil is available in an almost infinite range of colors and finishes! Some of our favorite foil-stamped cards in our holiday collection are Handwritten Wishes and Time to Shine.
To inquire about custom foil stamping that's as unique as you, visit our contact page and fill out the form to start a discussion on custom holiday cards!
Letterpress printing is a traditional method of printing that results in an impression into the paper. The ink color is mixed by hand and each card is fed through the machine one-by-one, resulting in a beautiful, textured finish.
Our in-house copy team is experienced with clever wordplay and seasonal sentiments! For some cards that ask for custom captions, we will proofread your messages for grammar and spelling errors and lightly edit for clarity. If you prefer to keep your messaging on the card the exact same as typed, please note it in the same field as your message.
If you'd like to convey a specific tone, please give direction in the Additional Notes field while placing your order.
Please note that our copywriter will not give options for different messages, and subsequent revisions cost $50 each round.
Our typical holiday card etiquette recommendation is to list family members in an opposite-gender relationship with woman first, then man, then children in order of age (oldest to youngest), and pets last if you would like them included.
Please list in the additional notes section of your order if you would like us to include small paw prints next to pet names!
While this is generally our recommendation around listing names, feel free to order however you like!
If you choose to order a colored envelope, the artwork on your envelope will be modified to print in one color at CBP's discretion, depending on the design.
If you order a scalloped envelope, only the return address and recipient address will be printed. We are not able to print artwork for collection cards on scalloped envelopes at this time.
After doing some R&D, we found that white printing for the recipient’s address makes it more difficult for the machine to read and results in slower delivery. We understand that the holiday season is limited and don’t want your orders to be delayed, so we’ve decided not to offer white ink printing for any of our holiday collection. If you’re ordering early and absolutely want white ink, please note that in the Additional Notes field of your card order.
Changes to your proof cost $50 for each round of revisions. These could include changes in color theme, changes in messaging/greeting and anything else that is a choice by you and not necessitated.
You will be notified via email from our project manager for each additional revision cost.
If you'd like to learn more about our bespoke holiday card experience, please fill out our contact form to get started.
Our collection cards require 2-4 days for design and 8-10 business days for printing and production. We recommend ordering your holiday cards by December 5th so that you can receive them by December 20. You should allow about a week for your holiday cards to travel through the USPS before reaching mailboxes.
If ordering after December 1st, we recommend choosing expedited shipping at checkout to ensure your card arrives in time for you to stuff and stamp all of your envelopes.
Holiday Card Photos
This year, we’ve decided to require a photo at the time of checkout. This allows us to offer a smoother post-checkout experience for all of our customers!
In order to get the best results when printing your photo, please submit a high-resolution, uncropped photo. Nowadays, most smartphones are able to take photos at a high enough resolution for good print quality.
You'll see the best results if you choose a card orientation that matches your original photo orientation. For example, if you'd like to find a card that works for a photo that's wider than it is tall, look for a card that offers a landscape orientation.
If you'd like your photo cropped, please note it in the Additional Notes field and our designers will take care of it at no extra charge. We do offer some light Photoshop work for an additional fee.
If your card design allows for multiple photos, you can upload all of your secondary photos in the upload field titled "Secondary Photos." The Primary Photo is the main photo of your card, and placement can differ depending on the design.
If you'd like specific photos to appear in specific places on your card, please name your files clearly and/or give our designers direction in the Additional Notes field. Otherwise, our experienced in-house team will use their judgement to decide which photos to use in each spot!
When you choose to upgrade to an attached photo, your card and front photo are printed separately. The photo is professionally printed on photo paper, then attached to the card by hand by our production team. This adds an extra special tactile touch to your keepsake card!
Please note that the photo will be permanently attached and is not removable. If your card also has a photo on the back, only your front photo will be attached.
Depending on the orientation of your photo and the card design you choose, our experienced in-house designers will use their best judgement to decide what looks best for your card! If you have any specific requests, please note them in the Additional Notes field and we will do our best to meet them.
Please note, we do not allow more than one photo on the back of your card.
