1. Specify Your Purpose

Card-making is broad in nature. Before you make one, you have to determine first on what the purpose of making it is. The contents in your card will vary based on your purpose. If you are making business cards, what's expected are details such as the company name with a logo, the involved person's name, contact information, etc. However, when you are creating greeting cards for personal use, such as thank you and farewell cards, expected on it are personal information and messages. Most importantly, when you're in the card-making business, identifying the specific types of designs and content are very important.

2. Decide On The Paper size

These cards have various paper sizes. Once you're done specifying your purpose of making, start deciding what paper size to utilize. By doing this, you'll have a glimpse of what the format might be and how it may affect when printed. Print greeting cards are usually packed with envelopes. Your envelope sizes will depend on the paper size you use for your cards.
