There’s just something about a paper greeting card that never loses its charm for some of us. We like to hold the greeting in our hands, feel the crisp paper, run our fingers over the words and pictures as if we were trying to absorb the essence of the message. Most of all we like to see the handwritten notes and the signatures of our loved ones. While ecards may be viewed instantly and forgotten over time, printed cards can be saved, cherished and shared for years. Although ecards have replaced printed cards in many instances as the more convenient, inexpensive and quick mode of wishing one another, printed cards still retain that special quality that electronic messages cannot convey effectively.
I specifically left the themes on the date night cards fairly generic so that you could use a little creativity with your dates. So if you picked something like “Go Bowl,” it doesn’t necessarily have to mean go bowling. It could mean going out for noodle bowls for dinner, going and creating bowls at a paint your own pottery studio, or really anything you take it to mean.
In recent years, photo greeting cards have gained widespread popularity and come in two main types. The first type are photo insert cards in which a hole has been cut in the centre. A photo slides in just like a frame. The second type are printed photo cards in which the photo is combined with artwork and printed, usually on a high-end digital press, directly onto the face of the card. Both types are most popular for sending holiday greetings such as Christmas, Hanukkah, and for baby showers.

Whew, it feels like we just barely made it through the Christmas holiday season, but now Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! I made these ninja printable Valentine’s Day cards at the request of my seven-year-old son who asked if I would design “some valentines for boys – with no glittery hearts or love and all that girly stuff!” After reminding him that valentines cards are for Valentine’s Day and all, he finally relented and let me add a few hearts to the cards…as long as they weren’t glittery!


Elegant edge cards can be used in place of business cards and work well for creative professionals, photographers and other types of artists who want to stand out. Photographers often use these as senior rep cards to showcase their work and encourage more people to book sessions. They can also be used as invitations to parties and other events, as save-the-date cards and even as thank-you cards. We'll even throw in envelopes for standard-sized cards.

Artist Notes: Wish your wonderful friend a Happy Birthday and let them know how special their friendship is to you. The card front reads "Just once in a blue moon does a wonderful friend like you come along!" and it is illustrated by a deep blue night sky filled with stars and illuminated by a beautiful blue full moon. A blue moon does not happen often, and it is considered the second full moon to occur in one calendar month. A month with two full moons only happens, on average, once every two-and-a-half years, so saying "Once in a Blue Moon" means "not very often". A blue moon is as special as your forever friend's birthday, and a great way to describe how deeply appreciated your special friendship is. The verse reads: Our friendship has seen so many milestones ... a few marked with tears, but most marked with laughter. And while we may have to count to remember just how long we've been friends, it seems like forever. That's just what it will remain ... forever. Happy Birthday, Forever Friend!
The Greeting Card Association is an international trade organization representing the interests of greeting card and stationery manufacturers. John Beeder, former president of the Greeting Card Association, says greeting cards are effective tools to communicate important feelings to people you care about: "Anyone feels great when they receive an unexpected card in the mail. For me, there’s nothing like a greeting card to send a special message. I’m proud to be a part of an industry that not only keeps people connected, but uses both imagery and the power of words to help us express our emotions.”
Cover Verse: An Irish Blessing May the road rise up to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face And the rains fall soft upon your fields, And, until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of His hand. Inside Verse: God bless you with the joy of His presence and the gift of His love on St. Patrick's Day and always.
