One of our favorite sponsors is Black River Imaging.  We fell in LOVE with their shaped business cards last year and now we’ve fallen in love with their Christmas Cards…actually I am drooling over all of their customizable photo books and gifts too!  We are not only impressed with the premium quality they offer, but for their amazing customer service.  We have loved working with this company…great people!  If you are a photographer…or if you just love photos…you will want to browse through their site and see all they have to offer.


Their LOFT line of cards is amazing, offering 5 different shapes to choose from.  You can also find adorable and customizable greeting cards.  I love these folded ones below.

 A few of us went with the LOFT shapes.  Below are the Christmas cards we chose from Black River Imaging.

We just downloaded their Photoshop card file and then added our designs in the shape.  Their site explains how to do this and how to proceed with your order.

Nikkala chose shape 2.  I love her quote “naughty is the new nice,”  especially with her Lincoln dangling upside down!  I love that she added her message onto her photo…it’s the perfect photo for that.

Becky used shape number 3 to make a photo collage on one side and her family’s “year in review” on the back.  I love how she listed special “highlights” from the year.

I kept mine pretty simple but I think the shape makes it!  I LOVE the shape (LOFT shape 1).  Seriously in love with the shape.  (and yellow!)


Brooke used Loft Shape 2 for her card, and to simplify things this year she used a free template from She made some adjustments to the template in Photoshop to customize it a little bit more, placed it into the Shape 2 template and she was ready to go! Her favorite print finish at Black River Imaging is the Pearl finish.

Kirsten used Loft shape 2 as well.  She absolutely LOVES the pearl finish that Black River Imaging does and cannot wait to send out Christmas cards this year (and have them done ;).

And last…I had to share their adorable metal photo ornaments!  I need these!!  Would LOVE these on my tree.  How cute would these be as a gift for Grandma?!  and there is plenty of time to have them printed and shipped for Christmas gifts.

Now for some fun news!  Black River Imaging wants to offer our readers 25% off all orders (everything!) until December 18th, 2012!
