Designing and printing your own holiday greeting cards is a quick and easy way to make a big impression. Having the right supplies on hand when you print is key to your success though. Good quality paper or cardstock really makes all the difference, and gives your cards the look and feel of a professionally made card. InkCartridges.com recommends a 80/100 cardstock for the touch and crisp edges you know and love from the best holiday cards. Or choose a semi-gloss paper for vibrant colors and a clean finish.
You can further personalize your cards with materials beyond your home printer. Use stamps and stencils to add that extra holiday cheer to your greeting cards that won’t go unnoticed.
If you are printing a batch of cards, be sure to have enough ink in your printer too. Nothing throws a humbug at your holiday spirit like running out of ink halfway through your big printing party.
