In today's digital world, we're in nearly constant contact with friends and family via text messages and social media. Unfortunately, these mediums are often short and sweet or terribly impersonal. A great way to send a more special message that's touching and memorable is with a creative photo card for a special announcement or no reason at all.

Baby on Board   Fun Pregnancy Announcements
If you're looking for an original and creative way to tell the world you're expecting, online photo cards offer endless options. Snap a picture of your shoes with an added pair for the new arrival. Turn your photo card into a math problem with images of everyone in the family and the new total for your growing party. Photo cards let you show off the happy faces of expectant parents and siblings, sharing the news in a sweet and personal manner.

Home Sweet Home   Engaging Moving Announcements
After a big move, it's helpful to hand out your new address to friends and family. You can take this task a step further by using photo cards to share the news. Include a picture of your family outside the new house so everyone can get a glimpse of where you're living. Include a close up of your mailbox or the numbers on the house for a bold visual way to share your new address. As an added bonus, this announcement will make it easier for visitors to recognize your house when they show up for a visit.

Join Us for the Fun - Party Invitations
The fine art of stunning party invitations is becoming lost in the digital age of Facebook events and email invites. Send your guests a special request for their attendance with a photo card for an invitation. Include a photo of the birthday girl, the special venue and something that hints at the theme. This is especially perfect if your guest of honor wants a fun excuse to dress up and show off a special outfit in line with the party theme.

We Love the Gift - Thank You Cards
Thank you cards are a nicety often forgotten. Resurrect the art of an elegant thank you with a memorable photo card. Snap a photo of the kids in a shower of gift wrap on Christmas morning, or take a picture of the birthday boy smeared with cake. A picture of the festivities is particularly special for friends and family who live too far away to celebrate with you.

Perk Up and Smile   Thinking of You Cards
A photo card maker is the perfect tool for getting someone to smile. Take a silly shot of the kids or an adorable photo of your special pet friends. With a "just because" photo card, you can turn nearly any picture into a little gift for someone special.

With photo cards, you can add a one-of-a-kind touch to your messages. Make sure your friends and family have something exciting to look forward to in the mailbox with these entertaining ideas. Staying in touch has never been more exciting!
