We Need Pictures!

Shade Tree Greetings will pay $50.00 for each photograph chosen to be used on a greeting card!

What we are looking for: Photographs taken between 1940 and 1975 for use in our line of "Actual Pictures". We are looking for unique photos depicting the "times" as they were. "Actual Pictures" cards strive for nostaglia with humor!

What to do: Make a simple black & white copy of your photographs (The more pictures you send, the better your chances are for having one published.) Write your name, address, and telephone number on separate piece of paper and lay it below your photo on the copier glass as you copy your photos. This will save you the time of writing your name and address on every copy. (Please copy only one photo per 8 1/2 x 11 inch page.)

Send your copies to us at the following address:

Shade Tree Greetings
ATTN:  "Actual Pictures" Photo Department
704 S. Clinton Avenue Suite 400
Rochester, NY 14620

If you have any questions, call us at 1-800-836-4206 or you can email us at photos@shadetreegreetings.com 

Our creative staff will review your photos. If one of your pictures is chosen, we will contact you to send us the original photo. We will scan it and return it promptly.

Since we handcolor each scanned image and add type and graphics, the process can be quite lengthy.

We, then, consumer test the card. If the card performs well, we will introduce it to the market in the next scheduled release of "Actual Pictures".  Compensation and printed samples will be sent at this time.
