98 days! :)

Well, friends... the time is here!!!

As I'm flipping the pages of my planner and filling in dates, I'm realizing that the Holiday season will be here sooner rather than later which means it's time for my FAVORITE part of the year... Christmas Cards!!!  

I absolutely ADORE designing and printing unique, tailored and FUN cards for so many super sweet families and individuals.  What sets me apart from a larger, "choose your design" type of company is that everything I do is custom and tailored to suit your aesthetic.  I take your design style (minimal, bold, quirky) and photos and create something that is uniquely you.

All of my cards are double sided and are professionally printed on the highest quality card stock with either a pearl, linen or flat finish.  They come with gold lined, silver lined or kraft envelopes and are delivered to you directly from my printing service via FedEx overnight.  The first set of 25 cards and envelopes are $45 and additional sets of 25 are $40.  Shipping is a flat $7 rate. 

If you're interested in having me do your cards this year, please send an email to
This is a separate email address I created just for cards to help me stay organized and keep track of everyone's photos and information.

When I receive your email, I'll send you an invoice for $52 ($45 for one set of cards and envelopes and $7 for shipping).  If you are going to want more cards than a set of 25, I'll send you a second invoice after you receive your proof.

Once you pay your invoice, I'll send you an email with details on what I need from you (photos, text preferences, aesthetic input,etc) and once I receive the information back from you my typical turnaround time for a proof is 72 hours.  I'll email you a proof, we'll make adjustments and as soon as the final proof is approved by you (and a second invoice is paid if you're wanting additional sets of cards) I'll place the order and they'll be to you within 2 business days.

If you're interested in a design only (one that you can print on your own and/or share on social media) or any other type of service, please just note that in your email.  I try my best to accomodate any and all requests and have done Christmas letter inserts, recipe card inserts, birth announcement/Christmas card combos, post cards, magnets and Christmas cards for businesses.

I'm starting on cards now and will be accepting clients until I get too crazy busy (hahaha), so send me an email to receive/pay an invoice to reserve your spot on the list.  

I have so much fun creating special cards for y'all and get such a kick thinking about how many Slightly Askew cards are arriving in mailboxes every season.  Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions you have at the above email address as well.

And since we're in a festive mood, let's talk Elf on the Shelf.  I LOVE me some Elf and would LOVE for some "elfspiration" for this Christmas season.

Our elf typically comes the weekend after Thanksgiving and arrives with a North Pole Breakfast.


I love to have fun with our elf and am always looking for new ideas.  If you have a great Elf idea, leave it in the comments and we can all refer back here when we're looking for one.  Here are just a few of our elf, Buddy's, antics from last year.

Thanks so much, girls!  Only 98 days until Christmas!
