  1. 1

    Select quality paper. Flimsy copier paper won't do, so invest in some greeting card paper specifically designed for inkjet printers.

  2. 2

    Browse the office supply store for publishing software that can produce greeting cards. You can also find templates online using a search engine like Google or Yahoo!.

  3. 3

    Using your publishing software or template, design your card. Add pictures that are relevant to your sentiments. Type your sentiments on the inside of the card.

  4. 4

    Insert your card paper into your printer's feed tray.

  5. 5

    Click on the "Print" option. The software will likely prompt you to print one side first and then the other.

  6. 6

    Let the printed side dry for a minute. Then flip it over and put the card back in the feed tray.

  7. 7

    Let the card dry. Fold it. Then deliver to your recipient.

Tips and warnings

  • Lay a straight edge along the fold line as you fold your card.
  • When you print the final product, use your printer's highest quality setting.
  • Check the Web for some easy-to-use templates.
  • Do some test runs on regular paper to avoid wasting your nice paper on goofs.
