Parts of a Greeting Card

Greeting cards have always been considered a timeless way of expressing ones feelings and sentiments towards other persons. So if you are planning to make one to make someone feel special and loved, here are the things you need to know before making it. The parts of a greeting card is one of the most important things you should know first before making one.

  • Front Panel

The front panel of the greeting card is the one you can immediately see without flipping some pages. This part of the card may contain a photo or graphics that would present what kind of occasion the greeting card is for. The front panel is the one that catches the attention so, as the creator of the  greeting card, make sure to use illustrations  that would perfectly fit. Same as choosing the right business logo that will be printed on  business cards . Remember not to overly decorate the front panel, because you still have other parts. You might exhaust your designs in the front part and you have nothing more for the next panels.

  • Inside Panel

An inside panel contains the inside message for the receiver. Messages are written in the right side of the inside panel. Messages could start instantly by starting it with the word “happy” and so on. There are also instances that you may opt to write your message starting from the left, if your message is quite longer. You also have the choice of adding another graphics in this section, or you may also repeat the same photo that’s located in front or you may have another kind of graphic, yet make sure not to cover the words. Take note, it’s the message that’s very important in this part, not the illustrations. You may also add additional inside parts if you want to such as pop ups that is preferable in birthday carbirthdayds.

  • Back Panel

The back panel of of a greeting card usually has the logo of the company, for commercially printed cards. But if you are doing it on your own, you can leave it blank or to be stylish and creative enough, you put your name in a form of a monogram or your own logo, that would appear cute and fancy too. It appears more personalized and the effort exerted is at its finest, which would surely be appreciated by the receiver.
