How many celebrations do you have in a year? There will be so many birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, births, etc that you will be purchasing lots of greeting cards for the special occasions. Normally, most people would have purchased those ready-made cards through the shelves. They might be beautiful but expensive and they are not personalized at all.
Have you ever thought of doing your own? All you need to do is to learn up one design software and own a color laser printer. Mastering any software would not be a waste of time at all as they are real useful when it comes to designing your own in-house bulletins, doing some presentations or even having scrapbook as a hobby. You can choose from Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Freehand or CorelDraw and start learning up the features.
As for printer, what do you really need? I would recommend at least a color laser printer as the printouts will not fade even if you have spilled some water over it. There are many brands of printers in the market place for you to choose from. No matter what the brand may be, choose one that is to your budget and liking. Good luck in creating your own personalized cards.I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?
