Say it with a card
The Americans are great at putting together customised greeting cards using photos of their children. Now Irish people can also get in on the act through a website called CreateMyCards. ie. The brainchild of Gareth and Rebecca O'Brien who set up the site last March after spending time in the US working in the printing industry, CreateMyCards. ie is perfect for christenings, communions, baby announcements ( featuring the infant's date of birth, weight and length), thank-you cards or for general party invitations.
You can choose from a range of professional designs and rework the text on the front if you want. Then simply upload your favourite baby photo or, for older children, you could even scan in some of their artwork! Simple photo editing is included on the site, so you can take a picture straight from your digital camera and upload it. And if you need to rotate or resize the image, or make it black and white or sepia, you can also do that. The ready-to-print card is created immediately, meaning you can proof it online and the minimum order is 25 cards. All orders are supplied with free envelopes and free delivery by courier within three to four business days. To fi nd out more, go to www. createmycards. ie.
