I havent had the privilege of seeing even a picture of it, but there is a Valentine card made in the 1400s that is on display in a British Museum. The first Christmas Card was commissioned by Sir Henry Cole in 1843 where he had John Calcott Horsley paint a card for him centering around the feeding and clothing of the poor. Although he wasnt the first, Louis Prang is known as the Father of the American Christmas Card because prior to that we imported our greeting cards from England. Greeting cards were original fairly expensive because they were a handmade and hand delivered gift so they were mainly enjoyed and shared by the wealthy. By about the 1850s they became more affordable because of the advances in printing and postage rates were very reasonable.
When I receive a greeting card I feel important because I know someone is thinking of me. I usually hold on to the card for a few days and display it so I may look at it. Then I have to make the decision whether to discard or keep the card. Like many of us who have limited storage space, I have to be selective about what I keep. Unfortunately, most times I find myself throwing out the greeting card. I usually have negative feelings about having to do this. The thoughtful card sender spent time looking for the right card, and many times the card is very attractive and I hate to just throw it out. An average person receives 20 greeting cards per year and I bet many have similar feelings about discarding attractive greeting cards.
The first thing you need to do is your research and planning. Then put your research and planning on paper into a business plan for your business. Once you have a plan you can execute it by starting with creating your designs, creating a marketing plan and executing it. You will also need to build a blog/website so if you dont know how to do this yourself then you will need to find a web designer to do it for you. What type of printer makes professional looking greeting cards? Any good quality color printer will work to print off your greeting card. You may find that a multi function printer is the best way to go so that you can scan your designs, print your cards, fax and communicate with clients and more efficiently run your business with one machine.
Custom greeting cards let your personality shine through unlike a generic card, custom greeting cards let you be yourself, instead of being someone elses version of yourself. A custom greeting card can showcase your playful attitude, your good taste in simple things, or your enthusiasm for a new project. Custom greeting cards also let you demonstrate that you know what your recipient would want in a new card: theyre not just something you pick up in one aisle of the grocery store - they are a unique way to express yourself.
