Now that it’s easier than it’s ever been to get a message to somebody – using text messaging, email, facebook updates or twitter feeds – the act of sending an actual tangible card is more meaningful than ever. When you really want to make sure the message gets across loud and clear, however, the very best thing to do is print and send personalised greeting cards.

In the age of mass communication, sending greeting cards is an act of personal interaction which can touch the recipient in ways which even the most warmly worded email or text message will struggle to match. The very fact that you’ve taken the time out of your busy day to select just the right card and write your message inside it is enough to let the person you send it to know just how much they mean to you. Every year presents numerous opportunities to make such a gesture, whether this means general celebratory events such as Christmas and Easter, or individual triumphs, like a driving test passed or new job successfully applied for. Once you’ve decided you’re going to go to the trouble of sending a card to somebody, the actual hard work of finding just the right one starts. And it can be very hard work indeed, sine the cards available in even the best shops can leave quite a lot to be desired. After all, the point of a gesture such as this is that it’s a personal gift from you to them, and knowing that your card is just one of hundreds in the rack which look exactly the same can detract more than somewhat from this personal air. That’s why making and sending personalised greeting cards is perhaps the ultimate means of ensuring that the card you give really gets the message across. The idea of making your own card is hardly a new one, of course, but many people have, in the past, shied away from making such a gesture on the grounds that any card they make themselves will be somewhat slapdash and amateur. Digital photography has changed all of this, because it allows you to have a card professionally printed using an image you yourself have taken. Think how easy it would be to find a personally resonant image when you have the whole of your photograph collection to look through. Having found the perfect image, you merely have to upload it to the website and then use the software to choose features such as the size and shape of the card and the presence of any text. The finished item will be printed using the latest technology and top of the range materials.

You don’t have to stop once you’ve designed your own card. Take the delight a personal card brings and multiply it many times over to capture the joy of receiving Easter gifts which have been especially crafted with you and you alone in mind. The process is just as easy, allowing you to use images of your own to fashion stunning gifts such as unique photo calendars and one off canvas prints.

There’s no better gift than one which gives a little piece of you within itself, and personalised photo greeting cards & photo calendars using your own special images do precisely that. They’ll show the recipient not only that you care, but that you’ve taken the time and trouble to demonstrate just how much.
