Getting Started with Greeting Card Printing

In this digital age, the timeless charm of a physical greeting card still holds a special place in our hearts. The personal touch behind a well-designed card makes it a cherished keepsake that many of us will hold on to for a long time.

Whether you’re crafting a card for a special occasion or simply expressing your sentiments, we’ll walk you through the process.

Greeting Card Design Basics

  • Theme; define the purpose of your card. Is it for a birthday, wedding or a holiday greeting? This will guide your design elements. 
  • Colour; choose a harmonious colour combination that compliments the occasion. Keep in mind that high contrast colour palettes improve legibility. 
  • Typography; choose fonts that are easy to read and that match the tone of your message. Play with size and style to create visual interest.
  • Imagery; use relevant photographs or graphics that enhance the theme / occasion. Make sure they are high-resolution for a professional finish.
  • Personalisation; consider creating a custom illustration or doodle to add a personal touch.
