So, I just signed up for Send Out Cards, to send little thank you gifts and cards to my bestest clients and referrers.
Maybe it’s just because I’m a designer, but whenever I go anywhere online to create things to print, I always am unhappy with the selections, so lucky for me, I can make my own! Not-so-lucky for those of you who don’t know design and can’t whip up something cool to use instead of the standard stock art.
So, I created 2 images for Referral Thank You Cards (they were created for PostCards, but you can use ’em on greeting cards too). I left them really plain, so you can make them whatever color you want! You may think: “Wait, isn’t that hard and don’t I need some special software?” Nope. You can use that nightmarish program, MS Word. Click Here to Download a zip with the pngs and pdfs.
Here’s the 2 files I created for you to use:
Here’s the instructions to change the colors, complete with screen shots! :)! If you don’t want to change the colors, just upload these bad boys to Send Out Cards, upload them to whatever site your using or send the pdf version to your printer to get lots made! Have fun and I hope make some nice cards for your clients.
- Open Word and select New Blank Document
- Go to top menu > Insert > Picture > From File… > Select one of the .png files
- Now the hard part, figuring out where to change the color on your MS Word version. I know everyone has a different version of MS Word, so do your best. I think in the latest PC Version of MS Word 2010 its under Format > Picture at the top. On my 2008 Mac, this is what it looks like: Go to View > Formatting Palette, see screen shot below.
5. Final Step, save that puppy! Right click and save select Save Picture As…
WooHoo! Now you have a cool card to send to all your awesome referrers too! Click Here to Download a zip with the pngs and pdfs.
Hope you liked these. Peace out.
