In today’s modern world, sharing printable holiday greeting cards with friends and family has become a trend. These e-cards give you the scope to add your personalized touch to each card and that too at a minimum cost. Of course, your handmade cards are more impactful than readymade cards that are bought from the market.
Whether you want to brighten up a social occasion or a holiday or just want to bring a smile on someone’s face, these e-cards are perfect for every purpose. Cards sold in the market can never express your true feelings as the words in it belong to someone else and this is the reason why handmade e-cards always acquire a place in the receiver’s heart.
You can make these cards easily under the comfort of your home without any hassle. The best part of this is that nowadays most of the desktops and laptops come with built in software or CDs for making such greeting cards and trust me you don’t have to be a software specialist to use it. You just have to follow the instruction mentioned there for making the cards.
If you are also interested in making such cards for your loved ones, here is a quick guide for you that will help you out in this project
1. Choose an appropriate software
In order to take the first step towards the project, you need to select the software which is convenient for you to use to design your card. As I have mentioned before that today PCs come with such in built software and you can use them too. One of such software is ‘paint. Though it is a basic one, you also have the option for fancier customizations like Adobe photoshop. The choice is up to you.
The simplest way is to use a word processing program like Microsoft word. If you wish to take up the help of Ok Google, you can simply ask him to find a site that will guide you in designing and making cards. Then take a print out and hand over it to the person you want to give.
2. Select your print paper, toner and ink
When you are done with your software selection, you need to gear up for print paper, toner and ink. Have a look at your printer manual to find out what kind of paper does it support. If you have an inkjet or a laser printer you can have a lot of options to choose from based on its thickness, quality and card stocks. Do not forget about the color, choose a color that suits with your theme.
You might also come across good deals in your local store for printer paper or even for holiday themed paper. To get the best deals on your printer or toner, purchase compatible or remanufactured toner from your local reliable supplier. Though remanufactured toner cartridges are cheap toner cartridges, they provide quality services.
3. Start designing your card
Now the final step is to give life to your designing ideas. I would suggest you to make a rough sketch of your idea on a piece of paper before you head towards the keyboard. This will give you a clear picture of the type of card you have planned in your mind. It does not really matter which software you have chosen for the purpose you can easily add clipart, pictures, texts, borders and more to it.
These personalized ecards reflect your true emotions to your loved ones that no expensive card in the market can ever replace. So try out the new way to impress your friends and family to express your love and affection towards them.
