Has this ever happened to you? You go to the greeting card store and spend way too much time picking up cards and then putting them back because the tone isn’t just right. Finally, you find a suitable card, flip it over, and see $5.99 emblazoned on the back! You’re looking for a simple message and what you’re getting is costing you 20% of the gift you planned to purchase. Never mind that the message doesn’t even quite fit with the tone you wanted. There is a better way to create a meaningful moment and that’s with custom greeting cards by Blue Bee Printing.
What’s the advantage?
With custom greeting cards, the design is totally your own, so you can create a meaningful, heartfelt message. You can include a photo of you, your family, or your pet. You can use a drawing or create your own design in Photoshop. You aren’t pigeonholed into using someone else’s words and images.
In fact, there are many benefits to creating custom greeting cards. One is the variety of options. Our cards come in two sizes, 10 x 7 or 8.5 x 5.5. Make sure you choose your size before you start your design so the proportions are correct. Once you design your front and back, you can choose whether you want to leave the inside blank for a handwritten message or printed on the inside in full color as well. Our cards can be ordered with envelopes or without if you plan on hand-delivering them. Quantities range from 250 to 10,000.
Custom greeting cards can save you money as well. The per-card cost is less than a dollar for custom cards versus the $3-$5 average at a greeting card store. Since we use volume printing, the cost per card goes down the more you order. Custom cards will definitely save you money in the long run.
How you can you use them?
If you’re always scrambling for a birthday card and picking them up from the grocery store every other week, then a set of custom birthday cards would be a fantastic idea for you. You can take a fun family photo with a cake and have your interior message personalized from your family. Your recipient will be more likely to remember your card if it’s fun and heartfelt.
Christmas and other holiday cards are also much more meaningful with a customized look. Generic boxed cards are immediately forgotten and many are tossed in the trash at the end of the season. With custom cards you can print a family photo of your choice. Your friends and family members will appreciate seeing your new picture each year and seeing your kids grow and change. Sending cards to work colleagues and customers also creates a meaningful connection. Your family becomes more real to them and they feel more connected to you as a person.
Blue Bee’s quality custom cards make excellent invitations as well. Milestone celebrations should be announced with a custom touch. Don’t cheapen your event with store-bought invitations or evites. Announce your party in a way that everyone will be talking about for years to come. Anniversaries, birthdays, engagement parties, christenings, first communions, sweet sixteens, and even weddings are a great place to use custom printed invitations.
Another way to use custom printing is with thank you cards. Writing thank you cards doesn’t have to be a lost art. People always appreciate a thank you note for gifts or a kind gesture. If you’re ordering invitations for a party, don’t forget a set of thank you cards as well.
Custom greeting cards are great promotional pieces for businesses. If you are holding a client appreciation event, your customers are more likely to respond to an actual mailed invitation than an email or a postcard. Greeting cards in envelopes are almost always opened rather than discarded. They stand out in a pile of junk mail or #10 envelopes. They make great promotional pieces for prospects and you can even include a handwritten note on the inside. It’s an amazing way to make a professional impression through direct mail marketing in a digitized world.
Don’t spend another minute on generic, expensive store-bought cards. Create a WOW moment with Blue Bee Printing’s custom greeting cards.
