I ordered what I thought were going to be fancy pants Christmas cards from Pinhole Press but am cursing Joanna Goddard for all her sales pitches because they came today and are very disappointing. I'm especially disappointed because this is the first time EVER that we are sending Christmas cards out, despite having lived together for 12 years, been married for over 7 and a family of 3 for over 2 of those years. I had (perhaps too) high expectations. They arrived this afternoon and are at least 3 shades darker than the actual photos we submitted, so dark in fact that they look like they were taken at night instead of midday. The color contrast is all muted and print quality seems really mediocre for the price we paid. And possibly in unspoken compensation, they sent us like 20 more than we ordered? Which I guess is nice? Except giving someone twice as many crappy Christmas cards doesn't really=half as many NICE cards.
Also? I ordered a Christmas present online (not from pinhole press) for a family member and it arrived today looking a totally different color than I expected.
