Make a Holiday Photo Card with Photographer's Edge Cards

'Tis the season to send holiday cards to friends and family. Many options from online photo labs let you upload your favorite picture and have it printed as a folded or flat card. A more personal option is to use card templates from Photographer's Edge.

The cards come flat with a pre-cut window opening. You place your printed 4x6-inch or 3.5x5-inch photo behind the opening. The image is held in place with double-sided tape. Then you fold the card, covering the tape, and your card is ready. A variety of styles and window openings are available. You can even have a seasonal greeting printed on the inside along with your name to save time.

Photographer's Edge also has designs for other occasions and some without any quotation or greeting at all. Ones that just have a border are a great, easy way to "matte" your small print to 5x7 inches and then frame it. So your card can be a greeting as well as a piece of art.

Photographer's Edge cards do take a while to assemble, but I've been very happy with them.
