    I need blank white greetings cards, size 5x7inch with portrait window cut-out

    Hi F.W.,

    Unfortunately we do not carry window cutout cards. If you decide you would like to have the cards die-cut yourself, I’d like to point you to our section of 5 1/8 x 7 cards. On the right hand side, under Place Order, you will be able to refine your search by format, brand, color, finish, and weight.

    I am looking for a glossy photo long card that I can put my own photos on and say Merry Christmas. as a long flat card
    and I am looking for a slightly heavier type paper that I could add a photo + design as a flat card and I am looking for card material that is slightly thicker with some sheen for a folded card.
    Thank you, your video was helpful

    Hi Peggy,

    Thank you for taking the time to comment about our video. We’re glad you now have a good understanding of the difference between our Flat Cards and Folding Cards. This way you know which types you need to order for your Christmas card and you can navigate our site and choose the appropriate format.

    We do not carry glossy photo paper so we will not be able to offer the photo card that you mention.

    Regarding the slightly heavier paper that you mention next, depending on what color you need, we might suggest our own LCI brand. Just keep in mind this will be a matte finish without a coating, so photos will not look as if they were printed on dedicated photo paper. In terms of weight, perhaps a 65 lb or 80 lb card stock (cover).

    For your folding card, you mention you’d like something thicker. If you’d like to stay with our LCI brand, you will be able to order heavier, 100 lb cards.

    We hope this is helpful, but if you would like any further advice, please reply back, or better yet, give us a call so we can get all the details.
