Photo cards such as greeting cards, wedding save-the-date, birth announcements, graduations, and business promotions are excellent ways to increase sales for our photography business. They are useful and popular with clients and can be used for our business promotions.
Photo cards are simple to design and print. Many printers have pre-made photo card templates to which we can add our pics and adjust the wording and other layout ideas. What photo card templates can you use for your own needs or as a package option for your photography customers?

Occasions for Photo Cards

There are numerous occasions for making photo cards, both for individuals and photographers running a business.
While wedding invitations are generally a specialty item, photo cards for Save-the-Date announcements or engagement announcements are a good idea for wedding photography clients. Engagement photos would be the choice for inclusion on these photo cards.
Using newborn or infant portraits, birth announcements are another good idea that can be used to make the new parents happy while giving you an increase in profits. The same thing goes for graduation announcements and senior portraits.
Business promotions can be a continuous source of income for photographers specializing in anything from small product photography to commercial advertising, real estate, and environmental portraits. Our photography can be used for whatever business promotion we are using for our photography business.
Using Photo Card Templates

The easiest way to create any of these photo card styles is to use a photo card template from a high-quality photographic printer such as Photobook Press.
The photo card templates from Photobook Press provide many options and adjustments for optimizing your photo cards. To see a template, choose any card design from their assortment, scroll through the styles available for that card type, then click on the “CUSTOMIZE” button.
On that page, you’ll see where to upload your photo, how to resize it, text options, layout, backgrounds, clipart, filters, and borders. There is a live view to see what’s happening as you make changes and a preview of the finished card.
Then choose your quantities and submit your order. You can save any project you design so that you can come back for reorders or any alterations asked for by the client.

But seriously, with the great designs already open to you with photo card templates, you can significantly simplify your ordering workflow, especially since Photobook Press has so many pre-made photo card template designs.
