Planning Perfect Photo Cards
Whether you are getting a head start on your holiday shopping or just looking for the perfect photo birth announcement design to complement your baby's first snapshot, pairing the perfect picture with your favorite design can be a huge challenge. No matter what type of photo cards you are shopping for, these tips will help you find the perfect combination for every occasion!
- If you find a pastel colored photo card design that you absolutely adore, try to pair it with a brightly colored snapshot. Bright photos usually have more visual pop when paired with a design featuring muted colors, and vice versa.
- Although brown makes for stunning photo cards and birth announcements alike, avoid pairing a sepia toned photograph with any brown colored card. The contrasting brown hues will compete with one another, taking on different shades that do not complement one another.
- Try to incorporate some of the accent colors in your snapshot to the design of your photo card. Using coordinated clothing, props like flowers or even colored backgrounds to complement the design of your card will add a special touch to your final product.
Be mindful when using the design's dominant colors, however, since you don't want the overall feel to be overwhelming. With a little restraint, this can result in a chic, coordinated look.
- In our experience, black and white photos look stunning when paired with blue photo birth announcements or other photo cards. However, we recommend avoiding black and white photos with designs that are predominantly yellow, since the black and white may appear dingy.
Follow these simple guidelines while shopping for photo cards and you'll be sure to have more than just simple stationery—you'll make memories sent through the mail!
