Creating Printable Photo Greeting Cards


Making your own digital photo cards and personalized holiday photo cards is a lot easier than you think. All you need is your favorite photo or photos to get started. Soon you will have your own customized set of digital photo cards to send off to your family and friends for graduation day, birthdays, holidays and more.

Printable greeting cards are a great way to keep in touch with family and friends and show off your digital photos. Most online digital photos services offer customized photo cards, allowing you to create your own photo greeting cards for holidays, birth or wedding announcements, birthdays, invitations, thank-you notes, and more.

Creating Printable Photo Greeting Cards:

Photo cards are simple and fun to create. Online photo services such as Shutterfly and Ofoto make it easy to design high-quality customized photo cards using your own digital photos and personal message inside. Typically, photo greeting cards are printed on 5x7 card stock and you can choose from a matte or glossy finish. You just need to upload your digital photo (or photos) to the photo service, choose from a selection of layouts and greetings, and add your personal message. Photo cards usually come in sets of 20 with envelopes for mailing.

Shutterfly even let you import your addresses from Outlook or your Palm device and they'll send your photo greeting cards for you. Now isn't that a great way to take care of mailing your photo cards!

Software for Photo Greeting Cards:

You can also make your own printable greeting cards using digital photo software. There are several great programs with photo card templates for a variety of occasions. They make it easy to design your own customized Valentine Day and Easter photo cards or other holiday photo cards. Our two favorite programs for making our own printable greeting cards are FotoFinish and Adobe Photoshop Album. They both have templates for a variety of photo greeting cards including Valentine, Easter, 4th of July, Halloween, Christmas photo cards and other holiday photo cards.

There are many fun ways to use your digital camera. Get creative and enjoy!
