How can you order my cards?
- Look them up in my new Etsy Shop GaleDavisonPhoto established November 9, 2020.
- Email me at email@example.com. I offer cards directly from my home in Waterville for $5.00 each or discounted prices for bundles of 5 or 10 cards. I can mail them to you if you aren’t from my area or you can pick them up from my home if you want to avoid shipping charges.
What retail stores carry them?
- I am not planning on offering them at retail outlets for 2020 and early 2021 due to the uncertainty involved with travel during the Covid-19 Crisis.
- They had been offered at Selah Tea on Main Street in Waterville and the Pemaquid Collection had been available from the Framemakers at 46 Main Street in Waterville over summer 2020.
- More retail outlets in the future.
How are my cards created?
- I print them myself using archival ink and paper on my Epson SureColor 800 Printer.
- I use Red River pre-scored papers in matte finishes which makes the cards a pleasure to write on.
How will you find out about new cards being offered for sale?
- Let me know you want to be added to my email list (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be contacted when I produce new cards or prints for sale.
- I promise I won’t be emailing you more than once per month
Why do I want to create cards with my images?
I enjoy the process of printing my images because it forces me to look more closely at the difference between what the camera captured and how my brain saw the image. I see things in my images my conscious mind was unaware of at the time I clicked the shutter. Printing allows me to adjust the final image to emphasize the elements I want to share. I enjoy the tasks involved with choosing framing materials whether its creating custom colored borders, matching pre-ordered colored mats, or finding suitable frames to enhance the look of my images.
Cards are small, affordable and easy to store. I can experiment with many more alternative border, cropping or toning choices and obtain faster feedback than with enlargements.
