I've been challenged by my minister to create a set of cards using photos of the church to sell at an upcoming church craft sale. It has been a long time since I used actual photos on cards and would love some links.

Thanks a ton in advance!

Do you mean digital like tiny prints or links to hand made cards that have photos included?

I would think that a set of 8-10 cards with a 4x5.25 inch photo mounted on a folded 4.25x5.5 inch card base would make lovely notecards that people would buy at the craft fair.

You could add a bit of text to the photo to include the church name and location or a scripture verse. That would be a nice touch.

Then you can mass produce sets quickly. Package them in clear boxes from Clear Bags to really look sharp.

I have done this before by printing the photo directly onto the card. If you use a photoediting program you can also blur the edges of the photo or change it to a drawing before printing. Add text that has the church name and date of photo.


Printing onto a textured paper also makes a nice card.
