Whatever be the occasion one thing you can be rest assured is that there is a lot of fun associated with each holiday. To make the occasion more special there are many types of gifts exchanged between the family members and friends. Along with the gift come the greetings cards.

The photo greetings cards are the best way to break the traditional path and gift something unique to the recipients.

Make the holidays greetings cards more fun filled by planning for unique photo greetings cards. Isn’t it a good idea to make the recipient of the photo greetings card laugh aloud with some funny photos as the cover of your card? There are many ways to achieve this effect. Laughter is evoked when a snap is taken in a very nontraditional moment. You can use the bathtub as the background for your Christmas greetings card. You can fill the bathtub with bubbles and then get your children dressed as the Santa Clause and your pets (if you have any) as the reindeer by adding antlers to its head. The bathtub with bubbles makes the children joyous and there will be many funny expressions that they will give out. Just make sure you take the perfect shot and then use it as your cards’ cover.

Funny holiday greetings cards can be obtained by families dressing up in a theme. Before the Halloween you may dress yourself as Mr. And Mrs. Vampire and the kids as the small, cute little vampires, the pets can also be dressed aptly to give a scary feeling. For Christmas the dad might become Mr. Santa and mom might be Mrs. Santa while the kids will be the helpers dressed in cute red dresses, you can also dress your pet with noses and antlers to make it look like Rudolf. Another great way is to give your family the retro look of the 70s and edit the pictures using sepia color to give it an old time feeling. This will also make the onlookers smile.

The conventionally posed photo greetings cards are nothing new, they are gift items selected by many. The people whom you are sending the greetings cards know you closely so why give them cards with the same old conventional snaps. Make them smile with some very unique poses of you and your family. It is very easy to create humorous greetings cards.

To get the desired result with your photo greetings cards you will have to take on the services of a printing service provider that has a wide experience in dealing with different types of photo products.

How to Select Photographs for Photo Greeting Cards?

Photo greetings cards give a lot of freedom to the common people to be creative. They can play with their ideas and give a new dimension to the cards they send to their loved ones. You can add a personalized feeling to the card which the recipient will love to see and read. But with so many choices at hand many people get puzzled. If you are not being able to decide what you should do first and what are the pictures that will look good on your photo greetings card then you should read on and try to plan your steps.

Good photos make a photo greetings card special, so you will require nice snaps first of all. Plan about the photos you want to take. Some professionals can get good snaps instantly but if you are not a professional then you have to first of all get an idea of what you want to use as the front page of your greetings card. Depending on this you may choose a location. Next you will require a good camera. In case you do not have a high resolution camera then it is a good idea to borrow one from one of your friends. Use freshly charged or new batteries so that there is no disturbance in the middle of the photo shoot. Also clean the lens to make sure there is no dirt or fingerprints in it that will make your photos look shabby. After you have made these adjustments it is time to fine tune your camera. You should set the image resolution and image quality to its highest setting. Also do not forget to turn off the “date/time” setting so that it does not appear in your photo. You may also use a tripod for shooting a photograph. This makes sure that the camera will remain stable and the pictures will be clear. At times clicking a dozen of photographs on the same theme and location does help you come up with some great snaps. So keep on clicking.

After you have finished with your photo shoot now it is time to consider choosing the photos that will attract eye balls. Photographs that have single images and non-busy background work well. Smiling faces are a great choice if you are looking to create a holiday greetings card. You may also take photos of the pet in a funny pose. But again the background has to be good. In most cases you should try and avoid taking group pictures, such photos only work for farewell cards.

You should also consider the color of the photos. Bright colored photos always make a favorable impression. Photos of colorful flowers, fruits, green plants, blue water, bright clothes and the sweet smiling faces of the children are best choices for get well cards. For the birthdays you may use the pictures of the children, food and flowers and for the mother’s day you can use pictures of hearts, babies and flowers. If you want to gift a card on the father’s day then you may choose images such as a lawn chair, a boat, horses, boots, globe, etc.

After this you have to resize the pictures and give to the printing service provider. You will require a printing agency which has a fair deal of experience with photo products. Print Papa is one of the most renowned printing service providers around. They not only deal with photo greetings cards but also other products such as photo calendars, posters, banners, photobooks, etc.

Remember Past Years with Photobooks

“The years teach much which the days never know”- definitely each year is like a chapter in the book of life. As soon as a year is over there are so many retrospectives released mostly based on the life of sports and entertainment stars. But what about reviewing your own year! You can do the same with the help of the pictures that you have taken all round the year. The photobooks lets you select some of the best pictures and create a memorabilia of sorts for yourself. Often there are so many remarkable events in a year and these memories get lost with time. But if you have preserved the pictures in your photobook then you can relish the memories later on.

One of the obstacles faced by the people while creating their yearly photobook is how to select the pictures? So below are some of the tips that will help you in your quest:

  • Noteworthy Events: Try and remember the noteworthy things that happened in the bygone year. Life changing events are a good way to start the selection of pictures. There are events that you have been witness to such as – showers, weddings, moves, deaths, graduations, birthdays and holidays.
  • Create Archive Folder: Create an archive folder in your PC by the year and dump all the pictures in it. You can randomly put all the pictures taken all through the year in this folder.
  • Rethink The Ideas: Once you review the folder many new ideas will come into your mind. You might come across a musical event that you had attended and would want to dedicate a page in the photobook for that. Your home might have undergone major renovations to your home in the last year and you would want to give photos of the new looking house in the photobook. You might also want to include some of the short trips that you took during the year.
  • Collage of Pictures: At times there might be some pictures you would like to include, but these do not require an entire page. A few pictures from a baby showers celebration, some others from of the family gatherings or may be some other old friends’ meeting can be included in the photobook. You can create a collage of all these special pictures and use them in a page of your photobook.
  • Get Photos From Others: At times you might have been at a special event but could not capture the frames as you were not carrying a camera. In such situations you may find some of your friends or family members have taken the snaps. Nowadays people share the photos on the Internet. So get those photos from them and use in photobook.


After you are done with these steps you will have all the photos in hand to create the yearly photobook of your own. You will need a trusted printing agency to give a great output to your photobook. Print Papa is one of the most renowned printing service providers around and they deal with various types of photo products.
