‘A thing of beauty is a joy forever’.
Greeting cards are not just ordinary cards meant for wishing your friend on her birthday or just before Christmas. It’s not just a reminder or a gift; it’s something even more precious. So if you are willing to make one and gift it to your loved ones, make sure it’s worth it. Ensure that it not only wishes him/her on the concerned occasion but also lets her think of you every time he/she gets a glimpse of the card.
Say that you are an employer and you wish to gift a unique greetings card on one special occasion. First of all, ask yourself why you want to gift a card after all. Secondly, under what circumstance/s is your choice of artwork or illustration fitting the occasion? It should serve the purpose of wishing everyone and remain as a token of remembrance until it perishes.
Points to remember before you print greeting cards:
It is pretty obvious that a greeting card meant for a teenage girl/boy cannot be gifted to a minor. With age, individuals develop/sharpen the ability to understand the importance of certain designs over others. This suggests that before you even think of the design; think about your target audience. If your employees belong to multiple age groups in the same office, you may consider making a multiple sets of cards.
Choice of words:
You need to understand how your viewers of the greeting cards will react to the writing on the card. If it’s a little kid whom you want to wish, words written on the card should be easier to understand. Avoid complex words and sentences.
Type of occasion:
It goes without saying that you need to specify the reason for gifting the card in the first place very subtly. It should not look befitting in an attempt to make it look cool. Plus, different occasions ask for different designs. In case you are confused about choice, consult your friends or some brochure printing dealer.
Reveal your design in the simplest way possible:
Simplicity is perhaps the best policy when it comes to designing greeting cards for any occasion. The artwork or the painting should not look too clumsy. Extremely beautiful photographs or paintings may divert the attention of the viewer entirely to it and they may end up not opening the card in the first place.
On time delivery:
Make sure that you print greeting cards either yourself or by via printing enterprises way before their estimated delivery. There is no point in delivering cards after the day of the occasion. Not only does it show your professionalism, but also reveals your caring side.
Greeting cards are perhaps the easiest and perfect way to wish a friend or anyone else. Make sure its visually appealing and the inside texts should at least mention the name of the recipient if not anything else. Experiment on a plethora of designs and artworks with professional online websites. At times, they replicate your ideas better than you can.
