My Blank All Occasion Photo Cards Arrived! January 9, 2008

Today I received my “do it yourself” blank photo cards that I ordered from Photographer’s Edge.

I bought them so that I can create my own photo greeting cards rather than spending countless dollars on store bought greeting cards for special occasions!

I have some January birthday for friends coming so I need to get moving on printing some of the photos so that I can mail them out.

Just in case you were wondering about the details…I started out by purchasing 50 blank cards with a bright white border and a think black stripe around where the photo goes shown HERE.

Example shown here of the card type I purchased:

I mentioned in an earlier post that I decided not to go with colored border (as much as I wanted a variety). My thinking was the black will go with most photos and if I ordered colors I may find that they are not matching perfetly with the photos. At this point with this project going simple will work best for me.

I’m so excited! I guess I should take a photo of my final product for the January birthdays and post it here. 🙂

Thought I’d also share a few other shots from tonight’s editing:

Same photo but I applied the dragan technique to it and then I converted it to Black & White:

On this one I applied a B&W Photoshop action 5 times to darken the darkest areas and lighten the lightest areas. I like the effect it had on this photo.

    quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your
    head prior to writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?

    Cheers!
