A paper and pencil new year card can be created to be very simple. It can contain only the desired message. For instance, a card with the usual inscriptions P. M. & H., usually indicating the birth month and the name of the person to whom the card is given, is typically used as a New Year’s card in social correspondence or as a New Year’s present by friends. Such a card can also be printed on both sides with simply a message, “Welcome Friends & Family.”
If you wish to make your own paper greeting, there are many templates that you can use. You can easily do this using regular home office paper or even recycled cards. To design your own template, simply download one from the Internet, print it out and cut out the design of your choice. Then fold the card in half diagonally and tape together the top and bottom sheets. Make sure that the card is not too thick as to take away the details of the design.
Next, you should fold the two sides of the card into thirds. Now you can write the desired message in one side and your personal information in the other side of the paper. You may use any type of writing paper you like such as bold writing paper, gel pens or ordinary colored paper. Then you can place inside the envelopees any type of writing paper you prefer.
After that, you can trace the design of your choice onto the top sheet of each envelope. Do not forget to write the date at the bottom of the card. If you want you can use one of the available templates that comes on the Internet or you can do this manually. The template that comes on the Internet is usually easier to use than manually drawing one.
Next, you need to prepare the ink. You can either purchase it from the local store or you can get it in a craft store. This way you will know the brand of ink you are going to use. Do not forget to wipe the ink off before you seal the envelope.
In addition, you can tie the card’s edge. However, if the card is folded, it is more convenient to glue it together instead of tying it. It is better for you not to glue it unless you have already prepared the glue and the edges of the envelope. The glue that you buy in the craft store should be applied only to the inside of the envelope. It is best that you also use ribbon to drape over the edges of the card.
At last, you should send your envelopes. First of all, you can send the year card through the traditional snail mail. It is recommended that you get the year card from your favorite stores or shops. Then you should follow the instructions given by the post office. However, there are some establishments where they do not deliver the year cards until next January. Hence, you should also be able to get your year card in time.
Furthermore, you can also create your own envelope and write the year on it. You can draw the outline of a calendar on the envelope with the help of a marker or pen. This way it will look very professional. However, you can also buy pre-printed pre-formatted envelopes in many stores.
If you want to personalize your card, you can highlight the best features of your business. For example, you can highlight the special offers or sales of the year. You can also write the personal touch to your cards. If you want to make it more memorable, you can put a picture of a star, an angel or a picture of the calendar year on it. It will definitely make the envelope more attractive.
There is also another option for those who are busy and don’t have enough time to go shopping for the year’s greeting cards. You can buy pre-printed cards online and then fill them with your own messages. This is very convenient and very budget friendly. These envelopes are also available in various sizes. You can choose the one that best fits the envelope. If you are worried about the card not fitting the envelope perfectly, you can always send them back and you will get a new one.
If you decide to make your own year card, make sure you have all the necessary information ready. Personalize it with a name, address and perhaps a short message. When ordering, make sure to order at least 8 months ahead to allow sufficient time for production and delivery. You will definitely appreciate it when you receive your year card!
