Are you a local artist or photographer looking for an opportunity to feature your work and potentially earn commission?
We would love to hear from you!
LBF Group is seeking local artists and photographers to contribute their holiday themed paintings, drawings, and photographs for consideration as part of our 2021 Holiday Greeting Card Collection. Last year’s collection was a success with more than 1000 cards sold, which means we gave back over $1000 to our featured artists!
Image Size: To accommodate the greeting card dimensions, artwork will need to scale proportionately within an area of 5”x7” or 7”x5” (inches).
File Type: A high quality digital file of the artwork will be required (scan or photograph) and should be submitted as either JPG, PNG, TIF or PDF format with a minimum resolution of 300 DPI for optimal print production.

The artist’s name and title of their work will be credited on the reverse side of the greeting card.
Customers will have the option to personalize the greeting card with their company logo, contact information, and a unique message.
LBF Group reserves the right to use creative discretion on final presentation, including the use of ink embellishments (metallic, clear, fluorescent, etc.), paper type (weight, colour, texture, etc.), and finishing applications (round corner trimming, foil stamping, holograms, etc.).
The 2021 Holiday Greeting Card Collection is open to artists of all ages who currently reside in London, Ontario, or surrounding area.
There is no cost to apply and this is a commissioned opportunity. For every print sold, $1 will be deducted from the selling price and credited to the artist, up to a maximum rate of $100 per order. This means, a purchase of 100 cards featuring your artwork will put $100 into your pocket! LBF Group will forward the balance owing to each artist following the online exhibit.
All artwork should be original and appropriately themed for the Winter Holiday Season.
There are no limitations to the number of entries an individual may submit, however final selection cannot be guaranteed.
Artwork selected for the greeting card collection will be featured on our website and available for purchase from November 5 to December 17, 2021. LBF Group is not responsible for any damage resulting from third party download of images that may occur.
