Greeting cards are a great way to show your loved ones how much you care, and they can also be a lot of fun to make as well! In this blog post, you’ll learn how to create beautiful greeting cards using PosterMyWall. There’s just something about receiving a personalized greeting card in the mail that feels extra special. And what could be more convenient than making your own cards in the comfort of your home? With PosterMyWall, it’s easy to create beautiful, one-of-a-kind cards for any occasion. Whether you’re looking for a Valentine’s Day card or want to wish someone a happy birthday, we’ve got you covered. So grab your favorite poster and get started with heart-warming greeting cards!
Choose the right template- heart-warming greeting cards
The first step is to choose a context-appropriate template you like. Do you want to wish someone a happy birthday? Or maybe tell your mom how special she is this Mother’s Day? Whatever the occasion is, PosterMyWall has got you covered. But what’s that, you may ask? PosterMyWall is an online poster maker that has thousands of templates, from thank you cards to Christmas greetings to gift vouchers.
Modify the poster to how you like it- heart-warming greeting cards
Once you have selected a template, it’s time to make the tweaks. Maybe you don’t like the big font size or want something removed from the poster’s background? Whatever it is, just click a template and the editor will open up automatically. You can use this editor to make the tweaks. Here are the tools you can use with the online editor:
Text editor: Do you want to add or remove words from your poster? Simply use the text editor to add new text boxes anywhere you want. You can also change the font, size, and text color. Not to mention that you can add ‘plain’ and ‘fancy’ texts and even add a slideshow to your poster!
Add photos: You can also add custom and stock photos to your poster. Stock photos are free as long as you import them from Pixabay and StoryBlocks (you’ll see these options when you use the photo adder). If you want to add a picture from your computer to add some personal flavor to your poster, you can upload it via your device, Facebook, Google Drive and Dropbox.
Edit some more
Those aren’t the only tools PosterMyWall offers. You can also use the Elements section to add shapes, clipart, QR codes, and stickers. If you want to make your poster even more dynamic, use the Multimedia option to add both custom and stock videos and audio or a mixture of both using a slideshow. If you still feel something is missing, you can change the entire layout of your poster or tweak the background. Just keep experimenting, and you’ll find the sweet spot!
Throw in some cool filters and effects
Once you have the poster ready, there’s one last thing you need to do: add filters and effects to the background, images, and texts. For example, you can choose how your poster will appear on the viewer’s screen using the Intro Animation tool.
I loved the “Bounce In Down” and “Pop” animations for a “We are hiring” poster I made recently. You can also choose the speed at which the animation happens. The flexibility PosterMyWall offers for designing is just remarkable.
When you select a picture on the poster, you’ll see a separate editing toolbar open up on the right pane. You can use this to add borders, shadows, glow, edge effects, tints, and much more to your pictures.
Last but not least, don’t forget to resize your poster. You have plenty of options to choose from, starting with business cards and logos. Apart from those, you can choose the typical flyer and poster sizes, which are 8.5×11 and 24×36 inches, respectively. If you’re looking for a bigger size, you can choose banners of three sizes. And if you want an even chunkier poster, a full-fledged roll-up banner may work well for you.
Some parting words
Making your loved ones feel special has never been this easier. PosterMyWall not only provides you with a plethora of online greeting card templates, but it’s also super easy to use. You don’t need to know a thing about graphic design to use it. It’s like the ‘Paint’ software from Windows – all you need to do is drag and drop, and the online editor will do the rest of the hard work.
Finally, if your poster is foldable and needs to be printed out (like a foldable restaurant menu), there’s also an option called “Folds,” which helps you design the poster, being mindful of the folds. Isn’t that a great feature to have? Once you use PosterMyWall’s online graphic design tool, you’ll feel it takes care of every nook and cranny of your poster!
