Create Artistic Photo Thank You Cards

Thank You Notes

With the huge advancements in digital technology in recent years, it's no wonder that stylish stationery fans are creating their own photo thank you cards as a sleek and refined way to extend their gratitude to family and friends. Naturally, the first step in creating a set of photo thank you cards to hand out to family and friends is to take the photos themselves. But before you do, make sure to consider some important concepts that will make a big impact on your finished photo thank you cards.

First, think about what tone you want to set with your photo thank you cards. Will you send these thank you cards to personal or professional contacts? Will they be thank you cards from your entire family? Will your photo thank you cards be used for a specific event, such as a wedding or other special celebration?

If you are planning to use your photo thank you cards for a specific occasion, try to include photos from the event in the design of the card. Weddings, birthday parties and other big group celebrations are full of great opportunities to snap a few pictures to make your thank you cards even more personal for those who receive them.

If you plan to send thank you cards on behalf of your entire family, make sure to include everyone in the photos you send. You can include snapshots from a recent family vacation, from your everyday life together or from big moments from the past year.

If you plan to send your photo thank you cards in a professional capacity, make sure to use artistic photos that don't intrude too far into your personal life. Photos of landscapes, nature and other artistic images will be much more appropriate than images of your family or friends.
