Do you like to design and print your own greeting cards using any of popular graphics programs available? Do you want some recognition for your work? Maybe even a backdoor way to supplement your income?
Why give company that made program all credit? Make your greeting cards uniquely yours by creating your own logo. Then every card you send or sell will have your personal advertisement attached.
You can easily do so using your greeting cards program’s "Back Page Art" or create your own logo from scratch.
First, create and save your logo. In your graphics program, open a blank page. Go to "Art Gallery" and look through "Back Page Art" or any other category, such as "Backgrounds" or "Flowers", that you would like to use in your logo.
Select your design(s)and paste them onto blank page. Add a text box and type in your data. Be sure you include your name, phone number and your e-mail so customers can get in touch with you to place an order. Vary
the fonts and text colors until you are satisfied.
Click on artwork you selected from "Art Gallery". Move your mouse over artwork until "Move" symbol (looks like a fancy plus sign) appears. Click and hold down to move artwork where you want it in
relation to your text. Release click.
