Picaboo got their new stationery by running a design contest:
Picaboo Flat, Single-Sided 5" x 7" Christmas Card Designs (will award up to 25 different designs!)
Check out Picaboo's Stationery contest…
Picaboo (www.picaboo.com) is a premier provider of photo books, cards, calendars and more. With Picaboo, anyone with digital photos can create beautiful keepsakes. Unlike photofinishing websites, Picaboo does not force you to spend hours uploading photos before you create a project. Rather, with Picaboo installed, you can make a complete, ready-to-order book in minutes. The technology behind Picaboo is comprised of an elegant client-side application and back-end network that makes creating, sharing, buying and updating photo projects simple.
What's your vision?
Picaboo is looking to add several new Flat, single-sided 5”x 7” Christmas Card designs to our card collection. The designs should be non-religious but be Christmas, not general holiday greetings. We are looking to award up to 25 winners if there are enough designs that we like so submit as many as you like. Card designs can be portrait or landscape orientation. • Submit images at final size requirements (use templates from www.picaboo.com/Picaboo_Card_Templates.zip). o Portrait 1538 x 2175 o Landscape 2175 x 1538 • All final designs must be submitted in template format (note the crop zone area and be sure to keep important details of your design away from this area). • Keep every element separate. • Name each layer. • All layers should be submitted in PSD. • Use allowed fonts (in attached zipped list). o If you create text as a layer, it can be any font. Editable text must be an allowed font. • Create thumbnail of design using our template. • All designs must be created in RGB. • Designs may include 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 photos. Photos can be different sizes and orientations. • Photos must be square or rectangular. Other shapes are not permitted for this contest. • Elements may cover photos. • Please use the attached sample photos in your designs.
Our customers are educated, married, working couples with children. They are creative, technically-minded, and artistic. It's critical to include card designs with multiple photos for those families with multiple children (it's common to have a family photo as well as individual photos of each child on the holiday card). Our design style is clean, modern, fresh, beautiful, and unique. It is not cheesy, quirky, old fashioned, cutesy, or busy.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their stationery.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Picaboo collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected 10 winners!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
