Make Someone Feel Really Special - Send A Specially Customised Birthday Card

Mar 11, 2008
Birthday cards are a way of telling people that they are fondly remembered during their special day. Many stores are devoted only to birthday cards and people spend hours in the aisles trying to select the perfect birthday card for their friends or relatives. Over time, birthday cards have become more specialized and there are special cards for mothers, fathers, sons, daughter and even aunts and uncles. You have birthday cards for the best friend, bosses and practically anyone whom you may ever want to give a card to.

But the limitation of these cards is that they may not replicate your emotions exactly and you may have to settle for emotions that the card manufacturer decides. A customized card has its own pleasure for the giver and the receiver and is a joy to be held preciously forever.

To be able to create your own customized card you need to choose between two options that are available. You could choose to visit some of the Internet sites that allow you to create your own birthday cards. You are expected to upload the image that you want to use and then you can choose from among various options to decorate the card. There are various frames and borders and writing styles that the card will offer. Some even give you options of the words that you may want to add in text. After you have customized your card, the company asks you to confirm it and sends the card to you or directly to the recipient as instructed.

The disadvantage of using this method is that you need to be careful while uploading images and ensure that the image is not distorted. Some sites allow only a certain file type to be uploaded. You also need to be careful about the size and dimensions of the image that you send. The card needs to be prepared well in time so that you can receive it to review and sign. If you send the card directly without reviewing or signing, then it may loose its personal touch and may also be distorted if you have not uploaded the image correctly.

The other method that you can use to create a customized card is to use a computer program to create a birthday card and print it at home itself. This would involve buying some software that allows you to do it. Adobe has many products that you can use. If you plan to use the software only for cards, then a small program will suit you well and may not cost you as much as some of the larger software options can.

The problem with creating a card at home is only that the one time cost is higher and you need computer ink and good quality card paper to be able to print it. The method you choose depends on your personal preference and should take these aspects into account.
