Updated Note Cards Page


The look of a website is very important to me - it keeps me there or kicks me out. I recently decided that I wanted to change the images on our note cards section - but wasn't sure about the backdrop. My inclination was to go with white - but then things kind of disappear, especially when our cards have so much white already. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out - especially the patch-like effect and texture of the wooden planks.

But what do you think? Is seeing the whole card better than the thumbnails?

I love the new photos. I actually think it makes your notecards look that much more impressive (if that is possible) since you are able to see it in its entirety. You are able to see the detail in the full shots so for the reasons you would choose to use a thumbnail Linda & Harriett has capture by showing the whole card and this way it shows more of the product. And the planks are a great choice.

Yes! I've been using beat-up wood for my photos forever and I couldn't agree more -- white backgrounds totally prevent a white card from having any pop. Much better.

I love it -- the background really makes the notecards "pop!"

Thanks guys! I'm going to update the whole site now.

I agree too. It's nicer and more visually appealing to see the cards framed by something, especially the pretty dark wood.

Could you show the detail and an action shot with the background on the website?

Mariss- I can definitely show a detail. (I have on some now - need to do more.) But what do you mean by action shot?
