Printable thank you cards are inexpensive and available in a wide assortment of colors, sizes and designs, particularly from stationery retail stores online. As a result, making your own thank you cards is a great way to save money and make personalized stationery for special occasions and events. By designing your cards digitally, you’ll have many creative options at your fingertips to make your cards exactly as you like them.
You can use printable thank you cards of any size to make thank you notes, but some common sizes are 4.25”x5.5” and 5.5”x8.5”. Depending on how formal or informal your event is as well as how many people you are making cards for, you may want to choose one style of thank you card over another. For instance, printable thank you cards with a textured surface as well as embellishments such as embossing or foil detailing are an excellent choice for event such as bridal showers, anniversaries and more. Alternatively, thank you cards with a pre-printed themed design, such as birthday, floral, etc., are ideal for casual parties. If you enjoy the idea of designing your card entirely from scratch, printable blank cards are available in an assortment of colors and sizes, and they often come with envelopes.
Creating a design for a set of printable thank you cards is simple, and you can choose from a variety of methods to get the job done. One cost-effective way of designing a card is to use a word processing program, such as Microsoft Word, on your computer. The tricky part is creating an appropriate layout; you will need to alter the size and possibly the margin width of your page to match the size of the card you are printing and create your desired card cover. However, once you have the proper settings in place, you are free to design your card message by using whatever fonts, colors, alignments and digital embellishments (such as clip art or images) that you choose. If you are working with foldover cards rather than flat cards, it may be helpful to use a free thank you card template such as those offered by Geographics.com. Templates provide pre-made textboxes and help to ensure correct printing.
