This article is part of our Creative Cards Resource Series. Each resource provider featured in this series shares their tips and words of wisdom, when it comes to creating printable, card-based products.
Sue, thank you for sharing your wisdom with us, regarding card-based products.
How did you come up with the idea for creating your product in a “Cards” format?
We just looked to see what type of affirmation products were being sold and saw that actual printable cards were very popular. So, we incorporated them into a new line of products. The self help niche for all ages is evergreen.
What tips do you have for customers who want to print these out and use them, so they last for awhile without getting torn or wrinkled?
Printing is going to depend on a person’s actual printer. If you can print using card stock that is going to result in a much sturdier card. They could also be laminated as well. Or you could print on regular paper and then cut and glue them to a firm card.
What types of things can people do to customize the editable templates and what program(s) can the files be edited in?
Our affirmation cards are editable in both PowerPoint and Canva, they may not be identical though. This way customers can edit in the program of their choice. One of the easiest ways to edit them is to simply change out the existing colors and design papers. Another easy step is to change out the fonts. With our cards it’s easy to duplicate the cards to create more or you could give customers some blank cards that they could write in their own affirmations.
What else do you want people to know about your cards product?
The affirmation cards are a new category in our store and we will be adding lots more to them. All the packs are in the same format, making it easy to keep a cohesive look and feel to them. We are also open to niche ideas so anyone can let me know what type of cards they are looking for and we can see about adding them to the line.
