Clara, thank you for sharing your wisdom with us, regarding card-based products.
How did you come up with the idea first crediting your Educational Flashcards?
I came up with the idea of the Educational Flashcards while packing for university. As I was checking my bookshelves, I actually found my own flashcards I had when I was a child. Of course, some cards were missing, some torn – it was clear they were used a lot. After some research online and the direct inspiration of my own cards, I decided to go for it, and create the flashcard pack.
What tips do you have for customers who want to print these out and use them, so they last for a while without getting torn or wrinkled?
Printing your cards on thicker paper should make the cards last a bit longer. But to protect your cards from accidents such as spills or drawing on top of them, consider laminating them. That way you can wipe them off.
What types of things can people do to customize the editable Canva templates?
I try to make my products as colorful and interesting as I can, but people can always take it a step further. Changing the backgrounds can make the whole flashcard pack look different by simply changing or adding: patterns, neutrals, and of course, rainbow colors.
The fonts used are also another way to make the cards different. Canva has a lot of different fonts to choose from.
What else do you want people to know about your Educational Flashcards?
These cards are not just for classrooms – they are incredibly versatile. They can be used in classrooms, homeschooling, or as extra materials for parents and caregivers.
Our packs are designed to be time savers. While customers can customize them and make unique content, they can also simply upload them to their own stores, saving them the time and effort required to create their own.
I have a lot of fun designing our card packs and creating colorful and engaging illustrations for kids. I spend time researching and deciding on the types of cards that should be included.
