    I have wanted square cards at Redbubble for a long time. Square images work perfectly for pillows and totes and to be able to have square greeting cards would be fantastic!

    A large number of my images are in square format, I have used some as greetings cards but with the image centered with a lot of white space on each side. A square card would be very useful and I would upload a lot more of the square format images if a square card was available.

    My big ongoing series consists of square images. Someone once asked me if I would enable greeting cards, but since they're tied to prints and don't allow a separate upload, the only way I'd be able to is if they either made square cards or separated greeting cards from prints so I can use the non-square versions that I already make for certain other products, as I prefer full-bleed images.

    I haven't read all the replies, sorry, but to be able to crop to the image boundaries would fantastic. I'd be perfectly happy with a white border around it.

    This would be a wonderful addition to RB options, and make a lot of artists happy (including me!)

    Please please please make square cards available! As a format it is much more modern and many artists create square works which look terrible on standard cards.

    Since you have such a high standard of images on RedBubble, I am sure many
    contributors would like an opportunity to print square cards - perhaps of a
    larger size. There are large format designer cards in the shops right now
    which people can keep and mount in frames after their original purpose for
    greetings which makes the extra outlay worthwhile. It would be grand if you
    could offer this option - 'special occasion cards'. Alternatively offer
    a choice of crop or not - as Photobucket/Qoop do???

    I have a retail shop and many of the cards are square. So square would be good.

    But then, if RB was interested in "competing with card shops" it would
    a) position sqare images on portrait shape cards and not landscape as it does now (looks much better, trust me)
    b) make the larger cards industry standard at 5" x 7".
    The current 5" x 7.5" DOES NOT fit in card racks! (either horizontal or vertical)

    PS - you can 'force' RB to postition your square image on a vertical card by making the height just a fraction taller than the width.

    Doing some research in card shops it appears that the photo cards that I prominently displayed are all square.

    We need to be able to compete with card shops and it is clear that the public (our customers) want to go square!

    I agree with everyone! A few years ago I produced my own square cards and they got rave reviews (tiny but beautiful). I think availability in three sizes -- small, medium, large -- is the ideal way to go! Am giving this the full three votes!

    When can we expect square cards? This cannot be that hard to do. We cannot compete with other sites and card shops unless we keep up with current trends. Square cards are extremely popular and we are missing a lot of sales by not offering them.

  • Peter StrattonPeter Stratton commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I totally agree! Roughly 1/3 of my images are in square format. Being so, cropping them to fit any of the existing formats, except for calendars, doesn't utilize the full image to advantage, or necessitates cropping it to such an extent I don't want to present it.

    In the UK more greetings cards are sold per head of population than in most other developed countries. Go into any good card shop and square format cards are in danger of out-numbering rectangular formats. This shows the strength of the market for the square format.

    YES PLEASE! add a square card choice. They sit much better when displayed instead of slip sliding away! Would also suit more of my work.
