CSM representatives contacted artist Maggie LaNoue
about creating holiday cards of the Milwaukee Road Depot,
a project in Minneapolis Minnesota to restore an old depot
into a mall with hotels, restaurants and more.

Learn about CSM.

Maggie added a new sky - took out most of the color
for an antique effect (the actual cards were printed with
more of a sepia tone) - added antique lamp posts with
holiday swags, added greens to the roofline.
She also added snow in the sky, on the ground,
and mist all around.
She worked on the type to make it more readable.

This is a photo of the actual message inside the actual cards.
We often use Strathmore Pastelle stock with a deckle edge.
This stock is acid free and gives a very impressive look to the card,
and these cards often get kept at the end of the season.

This project was so special that CSM wanted to give
a little history of the project in an unobtrusive place,
on the back of the card. Our cards are created custom,
so that printing on the back is no extra charge,
and we work with you, showing you proofs online
to get all these details correct before we go to press.
We guarantee our work.
