The hottest product out right now for seniors are die cut cards which is why you are seeing more and more photoshop templates for these products at The Design Boutique. But the best thing about these designs is that they can be used for multiple products from one single template!
All of our die cut cards (sometimes also called boutique, mod or artistry cards) are actually designed as full sized cards. Meaning if you are looking at a 5×7 Die Cut flat card template, the design actually extends out to be a complete 5×7 flat card. The beauty of this is you can order them as a different shape (you may have to move some elements around depending on the shape) or even as a regular 5×7 flat card. So many options with just one design!
Helpful Hint – If you are wanting to change the shape of one of the cards, first go to your preferred lab and find the layout of the card you want (Most labs have blank layout templates you can download that show the different shapes/margins/etc). Then simply open up the template you purchased from us and also the blank template from your preferred lab. Highlight all the design layers from our template and while holding the shift key, drag the layers onto the blank template. Rearrange the layers and elements to make sure everything fits inside the margins of the blank template. Moderate knowledge of Photoshop is required.
**When modifying any of our templates, please double check that you are following the margins suggested by your printer or color lab. The Design Boutique is not responsible for any printing errors.
The Sarah Die Cut 5×7 Flat Card (shown below) is now available at The Design Boutique!

In case you have missed our recent Facebook page posts, we’ve got some news for you!
We are in the final days of our Closeout Sale on certain designs. The sale ends and these designs will be discontinued this Friday, April 12th so make sure you check these out and grab them before they are gone!
We have also added new senior graduation announcement designs this past weekend. Our favorites are the die-cut cards that fit ProDPI’s line of Mod Folded card (our new favorite lab for all our own studio press printed materials). The thing we love the most about ProDPI is the huge selection of papers you can choose from, and they are very reasonably priced! Each of these new card designs (shown below) also come with matching mini announcement design that fits ProDPI’s line of double sided press printed wallets.
And these are just the beginning! We’ve got some more grad card templates in the works for our site and also for our exclusive line at Focused by WHCC. Make sure you join our newsletter and follow us on Facebook to get the most up to date information on our new templates.

It’s been awhile since I have written a blog update, I must apologize! However, I am very happy to announce that we’ve got some new album and accordion book designs for all you pro photogs out there! There are photoshop templates for seniors, kids and weddings and all of these designs are available exclusively through Focused by WHCC. One of my favorite designs is the Mod template, available in both a 7×10 album and a wallet sized accordion mini book.
Not a WHCC customer? Never fear! Even though these templates are sized for specific product lines at White House Custom Colour, they do come as layered PSD files so you can alter them to fit a different labs specs (some advanced Photoshop knowledge required).
Also, if you haven’t visited our online store recently, we have added a couple new digital paper packs, cd tins with matching cd labels, and a couple images boxes to our storefront. I will also be working on some new grad announcement templates, Facebook timeslines, etc in the upcoming weeks. We’ll also be discontinuing a few of our grad card designs, so make sure you sign up for our email list or follow us on Facebook to make sure you’re in the loop for when things go on sale.
We’ve been busy over at The Design Boutique by Kristina Lynn. Busy crafting up some new holiday card photoshop templates with some bold colors and patterns for all you professionals out there. And since Facebook Cover Photos are a hot ticket item right now, we even designed matching Facebook Cover templates to go with all these new holiday designs. These are great to use as an incentive to your clients or even a special surprise thank you gift. We’ll be adding some more new designs in the weeks to come so definitely keep checking back. Also, feel free to leave us some feedback on this post – tell us what you like about the current designs or what you’d like to see. We do take all your suggestions into consideration! Have a wonderful day!

In my last post I was raving about Animoto and what it is doing for my senior market this year. Well I have found another favorite product to offer my seniors, something that I am sure will boost my referral rate – StickyAlbums! What is a StickyAlbum you ask? Well it’s a custom mobile app that features some of your senior’s images that you send to them to download to their phone. It makes it even easier for them to share you work with their friends and family – it’s always at their finger tips.
Want to get two months added to your pro account for free?? Make sure to put email@example.com down as the referral source when you sign up! So head to StickyAlbums.com and sign up today!
As most of you know the biggest thing that seniors want right now are ways to share their images with their friends. What better way than to offer a creative slideshow that can be small enough to share on their Facebook page but also has the option of creating an HD version that they can project at their graduation open house. Animoto really fills this need for my studio and I’m so excited to be offering their products to my seniors this year. If you’re not offering this extremely popular product yet, now is the time! Simply follow this link and sign up for your own Animoto Pro account and save 20%. But hurry, this is a limited time offer and expires on September 15th! Go check it out, you won’t be disappointed!
