Here are some examples of a book that I am doing for our family, about our camping adventures over the past several years. This was created on

What's So Great About Bear River Photo Greetings?

There seems to be a growing market for custom announcements and invitations these days. People want something a little more unique than the generic announcements and invites they can get at the local discount retailer. And what better way to do "unique" than with a photo?! These days, many families are connected to other family members and friends who live miles and miles away, even overseas!

We want to keep in touch with friends and family, updating them on our children's successes, birthdays, engagements, adoptions, births, etc. And photos are a great way to show off the family. So now Bear River Photo Greetings comes into play.

We make photo greeting cards easy and convenient for the busy family...especially the busy mom, who is most likely the one sending the announcements and invites.

Here's How it Works:
1. Purchase your favorite design. 2. Email your photo(s) and what text you want on your card to rioosodesignsemail [!at] 3. Within 24 business hours, I will email you a low resolution proof. 4. Once you approve the proof, I will send you a high resolution .jpg image. 5. Take or upload to your favorite photo processing center, such as Costco, Walmart, or Photos should be 300dpi or higher resolution for the best quality photo greeting card. We will be glad to change your photo to black and white or sepia tone at no additional charge. NOTE: When you provide me with your image, you agree that you have documented permission by the copyright holder or you are the photographer. You will also be agreeing to take full responsibility for any wrongful use of copyrighted images and will agree to not hold me liable for any wrongful use of any copyrighted images. Are you super busy? Need us to print your cards and mail them to you? No problem! Please check our "printing services" listings to see pricing and other information.

So now, you can see how Bear River Photo Greetings is a GREAT thing! We print...all on your your convenience.

A Special Order for a Special Customer

I got an inquiry from a customer a little while ago, asking if I could create a photo birthday invitation for her husband, who would be turning 60 this year. She wanted something similar to a Bob Dylan album cover, or something like that. Well, I had a GREAT photo to work with! The photo in the invitation is actually a photo of my customer's husband, the birthday boy! How cool is that? So, you can see, I had a good foundation on which to build, and came up with the invitation you see. What do you think?

You can purchase this design (of course, you have to supply your own photo) HERE or HERE.
