NEW YORK, NY, October 24, 2011MyPublisher, a leader in personalized photo books and New York's top digital printer, announces the appointment of veteran merchandiser and designer, Cambria Evans as Vice President and Creative Director of Cards and Stationery.

The line will feature a variety of birth announcements, wedding invitations and holiday greetings that people can customize with their personal photos.

Preparing for the new line produced by Evans, MyPublisher is launching 500 exclusive designs just in time for the holiday season. The cards and stationery are printed on extra heavy, thick cardstock and are offered in five style options including rounded corners, square, panoramic, flat and folded. Available in semi-gloss or matte finishes, prices for the cards and stationery range from $1.29-$2.79.
