Your Custom Photo Announcement Order
Would you like your design printed on Photo Paper or thicker Coverstock? (Click for pricing pop-up window) Other than price, the difference between the two is paper thickness and method of printing. Your design will look beautiful printed on either paper choice. We proof each order to ensure the color and printing quality you expect from us is excellent. If you have any question about which paper to have your design printed on, and would like to see samples of each, we recommend ordering a sample pack before you place your order.
