When you select and send greeting cards to people, you’re making an effort to show them just how much they mean to you. That’s why finding just the right photo cards is so important and also, frequently, so very difficult.

Choosing exactly the right card is a tricky combination of finding something which matches your personality, that of the recipient and also the nature of the event or achievement which is being celebrated. It could be a jovial occasion such as a birthday or anniversary, or a heartfelt event like the congratulations offered upon the birth of a child or the announcement of an engagement. No matter what the particular motivation behind sending greeting cards, it’s surely worth taking the time to select one which is absolutely perfect. After all, the whole point of an actual card is that it’s an old fashioned way of getting in touch with someone which, in this age of internet connections, tweets and text messages, carries an extra special emotional impact.

One way of ensuring that the card you send is totally unique, and will pack a huge emotional punch, is using one of your own images to create personalised greeting cards. In the past, this would have meant taking the photograph in question and, in all probability, sticking it onto the front of a folded piece of cardboard. Whilst this may, in some ways, touch the heart of the person who receives it, it will also inevitably disappoint in terms of its’ shoddiness and somewhat amateurish appearance.

Using digital photo prints to make a card, however, is completely different. Once you’ve chosen the image which you think is absolutely perfect, such as a shot of your children playing in the snow to adorn a card bearing Christmas greetings, you merely have to upload it to the relevant website and then follow the simple instructions.

The software has been developed to keep things as easy as possible, meaning that the process moves forward one simple, instinctive step at a time, offering choices over features such as the size and shape of the card and the presence or otherwise of any text. Once you’re completely happy that the card is going to look exactly as you wish it to look, you can order as few or as many copies of it as you like. Each will be printed to a professional standard on thick, expensive card using techniques which render every colour and line in perfect, crystal clear detail and will come complete with an envelope. When you see the reaction of the recipient upon receiving photo cards of this type, you’ll wonder why you ever bothered with the shop bought, mass produced variety. The fact that you’ve fashioned something especially for them, and taken the time and trouble to select an image which you know will touch their heart will underline just how much you mean to them, resulting in a card which will continue to be enjoyed and treasured long after the day it’s received.

Rather than searching through the ranks of mass produced photo cards, despairing of ever finding one which is absolutely perfect, take advantage of the technological advances which allow you to create greeting cards of your own.
