Photo Greeting Cards

A look at the world of photo boxes, the photography world, and more box varieties.

Making your own photo greeting cards can be a great way to stay in touch with everyone in your life, in a completely unique way that they’ll greatly appreciate.  Just imagine if you could send out customized cards with pictures of you, or your children, so that relatives can enjoy a great new personalized picture, as well as the thought behind the message.  Plus, photo greeting cards aren’t that hard to make, or acquire, and are very affordable depending upon the method you choose.  All you have to do, is figure out the way that bringing your card ideas to life, will be the easiest for you.

One of the most important things when it comes to any photo greeting cards, is ensuring that you are able to get what you want from your card.  You’ll find that there are both professional services that can create cards fro you, but you can also buy your own software to make the cards yourself as well.  Usually making the cards yourself is the way to truly ensure that you get exactly what you want, but the method will be much more costly.  You’ll need the right hardware to turn your home computer into a card making machine, so finding the proper accessories is absolutely key.

One of the first things that you’re going to want to do, is ensure that you have the best possible software that’s compatible with your machine.  There are plenty of different types of greeting card programs on the market, and you should be able to find one that will work on your computer’s operating system.  There are even programs available from tope manufacturers like Kodak or Hallmark, so that you can be sure to create cards that anyone will love.  But it’s also important to ensure that you’re able to find a printer that’s capable of creating high quality photographic prints.  This is important, as the software will help you design the look of your card, but the printer has to make that card come alive.

For that reason, you want high quality photo printers, so that you can be sure every single aspect of your photo greeting cards are captured accurately. Also, you’ll want to be sure that you choose a laser jet printer, as the ink is less likely to smear.  When you’re printing photo greeting cards, you’re usually going to have to insert the paper multiple times, so you want an ink that’s guaranteed not to smear.  For that reason, only laser jets are the type that you should count on, when you want your cards to look their best.

When you want to avoid the cost associated with all of those products, instead you’re going to want to use an online company like Shutterfly.com, which is capable of printing your photo greeting cards for you.  This way, you can upload photographs, and have them print the cards out for you.  That way you don’t have to worry about any of the hassle associated with making the cards.  They’ll even send them out with personalized messages to everyone in your address book, so that you don’t have to worry about mailing either.  Otherwise, you can also have your photo greeting cards sent to your home, so that you can personalize and send them yourself.
