Find a web site that offers the style of card you like. Sites such as Greetings Island and offer an array of cards, including cards for birthdays, anniversaries and supportive "I'm here for you" messages. (See References 1 & 2)

Click on the type of greeting card you want to send; then choose the card you want to personalise . When you open a card on Greetings Island, for example, clicking on the card opens the "personalize" page. (See Reference 1)

Click on each page you want to customise. Select font, colour and size. Some sites, such as, offer canned greetings for your convenience. Or you can write your own. (See Reference 1)

Select the "Print" button when you are happy with your work. Choose the size of paper and type of fold you desire. When you choose paper size on, your printer function menu opens. Make sure you have paper in your printer and print your card.
