We get requests for Boxed Cards as many buyers consider this the way cards should come? It is not for us to agree or not but to inform the client of their choices. A true two part box that is well made is constructed of board that is then covered with a printed paper. When large printings of tens of thousand are made this can be done by special equipment at reasonable cost. Yet when a client requests this for a minimal printing they are shocked at the costs involved. KHP studied the problem and developed a box top that fully covers the box base thereby doubling its wall strength. The two parts are in fact joined on one side acting as a hinge allowing the top to be fully opened from the box base.
The explanation of the box above is to show that we look for ways that will give our clients what they are looking for but at an affordable cost. In this case the box and the cards that will be inside are all able to be printed on the same card stock at the same time eliminating the need for extra printing and wrapping.
Produced for the Riverside Church in New York City. They were looking for a Holiday Card for their congregants who come from many religious backgrounds. This card reproduces a detail from the Children's
Window. The Flight into Egypt demonstrates the tradition and skill of
the artist using stained glass. With the addition of the word "Peace"
into the image, it makes a wonderful Christmas/Holiday Card. The card is blank
inside for a personal greeting which may be computer printed or hand
written. The handsome presentation is in a rigid box housing 12 cards
6" x4.25" cards and envelopes to fit.
This is an attractive painting by William Merritt Chase that is in the Parrish Art Museum. For this box it was decided that the client wanted 16 cards and envelopes. On the back of the box, details about the painting and artist were printed.
Being custom publishers we pride ourselves in trying to give our clients what they envision. It is seldom that a request by a client presents problems for KHP, yet with this project we had to stretch. Discovery World wanted a set of cards showing the S.V. Denis Sullivan, Wisconsin's Flagship. Having 12 cards was no problem but the fact that the cards were all to be embossed and recessing the image again was not a problem but leaving the cards with a silk matte finish but with a gloss lamination of the recessed images did stretch our abilities, yet we solved the technical problems. In addition to the logo banded cards a double sided informational card was added to complete the boxed set, with the results being praised by all.
