Florida Bride + PosePrints

We at PosePrints have been featured in Florida Bride Magazine! We are so thrilled to have this shout-out from such a great, fun, and helpful magazine, and we hope our Florida Bride readers who haven’t heard of us before stop by and have some fun on our site!

{Florida Bride Magazine}

The great part of being an internet-based company is that we are able to share our custom invitations, stationery, save-the-dates and all our unique caricature products globally—we may be based in San Francisco, but the good news is that anyone can order one of our products from their home and receive high-quality paper products within 3-5 days. We are so happy that all our Florida Brides can now create customizable, unique stationery and wedding programs that celebrate their special day. Brides all over are busy planning their special day and PosePrints is a way to make that process quick, fun, creative and different than run-of-the-mill invitations, save the dates and more.

The feature goes a little into the background of our company–Jen and her mother Denise used their skills as creative and business-savvy women to create a mother-daughter company that has been thriving since 2007. We are happy to know our company is flourishing and continues to reach creative brides all over–the type of bride who knows that her special day should be one to remember! With all of our products, you get to choose it all: eyebrows, hair color, lipstick, eye shape, hairstyle, accessories and clothing, and an unforgettable, unique and 100% customizable backdrop. We hope any readers from Florida Bride who decide to stop by have a blast trying out all the amazing options on our site and that invitation to play around to find the perfect match when it comes to your wedding extends to all our amazing brides the world over!

PosePrints has new Autumn Designs in time for Fall!

It’s getting chillier, the days are getting shorter, and it’s time to take out your biggest, comfiest sweater! It’s the time of year for hot apple cider, big scarves, pumpkin carving, trick-or-treating, gathering with your family for Thanksgiving and if you’re lucky to be in the right places, watching the leaves turn amazing shades of yellow and red! Fall is such a fun time of year because we all get cozy, snuggle up inside, spend time with family and eat lots of yummy foods (sugar cookies! Cranberry sauce! Turkey dinner! I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!).

In honor of entering into this Fall season, we wanted to share a few of our fun designs that are perfect for this season! Here are a few backdrops to keep in mind when designing invitations, sending free E-Cards or creating thank-you-notes or save-the-dates that hit the right note for autumn-themed planning:

We have our classic pumpkin design–perfect for Halloween and Spooky Parties! It’ll be a party (and invitation) to remember!

For a chic, evocative backdrop, try our Autumn Leaves!

And of course, for those misty fall days, we’ve got our Rain Showers backdrop!

Try putting a caricature version of yourself in front of these fun, Fall designs!

What’s so  unique about our custom stationery is that we make sure our caricature designs fit and reflect you. Having the most individual and creative invitations for your family’s thanksgiving or your Halloween Monster Mash means that you want to be able to show who you are best—by choosing the lip color, hair color, eyebrows, clothes and backdrop that accurately display who you and your family are. We at PosePrints want to keep you looking up-to-date, chic, adorable in our caricatures and to make sure our paper products are printed quickly and with quality you can spot. Happy Autumn!

Notepads and Business Cards–the PosePrints way!

We had a great summer at PosePrints, with celebrating our 7th birthday and the unusually warm weather in the Bay Area! School is fully in swing for those with children (or for teachers!) and people are planning their winter vacations. That search for the perfect back-to-school or birthday present as the holiday season approaches is upon us—and of course treating yourself to something special is so important as it gets colder and busier at home and work.

At PosePrints, we are proud of our unique, high quality customizable products—and that means more than just invitations and save-the-dates! We have a great selection of stationery choices aside from our trademark customizable invitations. Stylish, high quality and affordable products, in fact! PosePrints’ speciality is our unique and fun customizable stationery but luckily we’ve got so many other fun products that give you an extra bit of individual flair wherever you may be.

{A customized card featuring light pink lines}

 The important kids in your life can use one of our customized notepads for class or for writing notes to friends. You can create notepads for your holiday planning or for keeping a chic grocery list. Our business cards and thank you notes create an elegant addition to any business suite for the talented entrepreneur who can use some extra oomph! The best part is that our caricatures come in a diverse range of customizable options and include children as well as adults so anyone you know (you included!) can find themselves on their own customizable, unique and fun paper products!

{Two examples of the customizable All White Notepad–we’ve got ones with backdrops too!}

As with all our designs you choose from our diverse range of caricature options to create a look-alike with fun props, accessories and that just-right hair color. You choose your eye color, jewelry and backdrop! Your caricature can then grace our notepads (perfect for any stylish kid or teen who’s looking to stand out) or business cards for the chic professionals in your life.

It’s a great time to think about how you can really reflect who you are with our customized PosePrints products—at work and at home! We all deserve stationery and paper goods that reflect how stylish we are—teachers, business women, parents, and students!

Mitzvah Market + PosePrints!

We hope you’re having fun with our birthday discount–we are so happy we could celebrate our seventh birthday with all of you! We wanted to write today to share a great site, Mitzvah Market, that recently wrote a really thoughtful post about our customized stationery and favors which work great for Bar/Bat Mitzvahs! The post can be read here, and explains what we do and how it can be applied to Save-The-Dates, invitations, and even party favors like magnets!

{On the Beach Design–Save-The-Date}

As with all our stationery, you design it every step of the way–from the background you choose, the text and the caricatures on the cards and favors. With all of our products, it’s easy to find a caricature that reflects you and your family in a unique, individual way. With PosePrints, your special day will be preserved through your customized invitations and favors. We loved the products featured on the Mitzvah Market, and want to share some of the examples that will make a Bar/Bat Mitzvah stand out in a crowd.

Mitzvah Market is a wonderful source for planning, party ideas, discounts and resources submitted by moms (and founded by a mother, Sheri Lapidus!). We highly recommend taking a look at their helpful site. We’re glad to have been featured for our customizable caricature stationery and to be considered a resource when planning such an exciting, milestone moment!

It’s almost SF Pride celebration! At PosePrints, we are all San Francisco Bay Area residents and pleased that such an amazing celebration happens here every year!

The theme this year is Color Our World with Pride and it will be a colorful, wonderful and meaningful weekend!

{San Francisco Design–Personalized Couples Silhouette }

“My caricature doesn’t look enough like me…”

That’s okay!  We can fix that!

We’ve heard it before.  The bad news is, we just can’t fit every option into one website (although we wish we could!).  And good news is, we’re here to help!

As you probably know, it takes less than 5 minutes to create your own look-alike caricature cards, notepads and magnets at PosePrints.com.  (Check out a few of our “How To” videos here to see how quick it can be!)  But, that doesn’t mean your caricature (or “pose”) will look enough like you.  We want your PosePrints to look as much like you as possible, however, so we’ll make any changes you need!

So, if there’s a distinguishing feature about you (or someone on your PosePrint) that isn’t offered in PosePrints’ options — just let us know!  When you place your order, make note of what you would like to see changed in the Comments section, and we will send you a proof within one day to approve (or change up) before we print.

Here are a couple of examples of PosePrints showing custom changes:

This customer requested that we change the color of the lines on her recipe cards, that we lighten her gray hair, and add a beauty mark to her lip.  Done!

And here’s an example of a custom Save-the-Date card.  Check out all the special tweaks we made!

Here’s what the bride-to-be wanted (and what we did!): changed the hairstyle of the groom, changed the bride’s nose, made the bride’s hair extra long with curl at the ends, replaced the “diamond” engagement ring with an eternity wedding band, added spaghetti straps to the wedding dress, made the bride curvier, made the bride’s eyebrows extra-light, changed the bride’s top lip, and made a gray Washington DC background design.  Voilà!

Corgi Cards

I mean, who doesn’t need a set of Corgi Stationery?!

After incessant requests from Lizzie, a crazy Pembroke-Welsh-Corgi-Lover (and Jen’s sister and Denise’s daughter), we finally added Corgi cards to the PosePrints shop.  Hope you like it, Liz!
