Summer is the season for parties, gatherings, and celebrations. Photo cards are a great way to add a personal touch to your summer events. Here are some creative ways to use them.

Birthday party invitations made from customizable photo cards

1. Party Invitations

Start your summer event off right with custom photo invitations. Whether it’s a barbecue, birthday party, or beach gathering, a photo invitation sets the tone and gets guests excited. Choose a fun, summery photo and customize the text to match your event.

2. Thank You Notes

Everyone loves a personalized thank you note! Create custom thank you cards for a specific event, like a baby shower, by including a photo or set of photos from that event. Or, design your own thank you cards that you can use year-round with a picture of your pet, a sunset from your last beach trip, or a custom illustration. Pre-fill the back or inside of your card with a message or leave it blank so you can write your own greeting by hand.

Create advice cards for your next event

3. Advice Cards

Planning a baby shower, bridal shower, or engagement party? Advice cards are a fun way to let your guests provide their thoughts on the guest of honor’s upcoming milestone. Use our blank card theme and make your own advice or well-wishes cards for guests to fill in. You can customize the look of the card to match the colors and decor of your event so that the advice cards become a keepsake for the guest of honor.

4. Moving Announcements

Summer is a popular time to move to a new house or apartment. Let our friends and family know your new address by creating custom moving announcements with our photo cards. Add a photo of your new home or a picture of your family, and don’t forget to include the new address!

5. Birth Announcements

Let everyone know your new bundle of joy has arrived with a photo card birth announcement. Make sure to include a photo of your beautiful baby, along with details you’d like to share with your recipients, like the baby’s name and birth date. Customize the look and feel of the card with unique backgrounds.

Photo cards are useful to create your own save the dates

6. Save the Date Cards

If you’re planning a wedding, you can use photo cards for your save the date announcements. Choose a photo from your engagement photography session or a compilation of photos of your time together as a couple. Save the cards should also include important details, like the wedding date and location, that will help your guests to mark their calendars as they prepare for the official invitation.
