DIY Photo Cards are the Way to Go

Don’t you love when you receive customized photo cards in the mail from your friends? You get to see where they have been, read about their adventures, and feel like you are a part of their lives.

So why not create your own customized photo cards to send out to your friends and family? You don’t always have to wait for a holiday to create a custom photo card — you can just take a bunch of pictures of yourself or your family, or take recent photos out of your photo albums, and make them into custom photo cards.

Instead of outsourcing this to a professional printing company, you can simply go online and put them together with the help of online templates.

Many websites offer a wide variety of templates to choose from, and you can play around with your digital images until you find the one that looks best. That’s one of the advantages of creating your own photo card. If you ask a photographer to do it for you, you may not have as much of a say in what photos make it onto your card. You also may not agree with what the photographer chooses.

You also have the chance to play around with your picture and tweak small details, or change the filter. When you add in a filter, it can alter the picture in different ways, getting rid of any glare, enhancing background colors that add appeal to the picture, and simply cropping out parts that you don’t like. You can even zoom in on particular sections that you think would help your pictures look unique.

In addition, you can also get your photo cards printed in bulk for a cheaper price if you do it on your own. Many websites offer mass printing for a reduced price, so you may be paying less for 100 photo cards, than for a handful from a professional photo lab. In this case, you could probably make more than one type of photo card, and send each family or friend the one that you think they would like best.

So, if you do want to send out photo cards, and you have at least 50 people you want to mail them off to, considering making your own. It will likely save you a lot of money in the long run, and you will have fun doing it. Find more on this here:
