How To Make Your Own Announcements OnlineOccasionally sending announcements slips by us because it's so inconvenient to go buy them, and we let the time get away. Or we go look for some, don't find what we really want, and next thing you know it's too late.
Life is usually busy, sometimes to the point of being very hectic. While there are always exceptions, generally speaking, it gets even more so as we age. Between children, school, work, church, household chores, and the list goes on, we're going full steam from the minute we arise until we go to bed.
Therefore, anything that can make a task more convenient and also give us better results is very much welcomed. Those are the two key benefits of buying online, convenience and pleasing results, and experience clearly confirms that buying announcements online fits well within that scope.
It makes absolutely no difference what you need announcements for, buying them online is still the best way to go. Furthermore, making them yourself is going to give you much more pleasing results than simply going online and picking some out. In making them, you will need to do a little preparation before you go online to order, and that will vary with the need.
If you need announcements for a newborn baby, a graduation, or possibly a wedding, then you may want to have some pictures available on your computer for use in your announcements. Otherwise, for moving or save the date type announcements, you may only need the details that you would want to include, such as addresses, dates, etc.
With the necessary prep work done and accessible, you're ready to make your own announcements online. All you have to do is logon to a web site that provides the following key components; unique and desirable announcement card selections, some good features and options, an easy to follow ordering interface, and the latest technology.
First, you will need to pick out a card design that you really like, and decide what color you want it in.
Next, choose the most appropriate announcement message or wording for your particular needs, make any changes necessary, and have it printed in a stylish font.
If your announcements are going to include a picture, it will walk you through the steps to easily transfer your picture to the card template you've chosen. You can also add some artwork or themed graphics, if appropriate.
The last step is to preview your choices and combinations. This is where the right technology is very helpful, as it will display your card in its final form in full view on your screen, as opposed to just reviewing the choices you made or waiting for someone to email you a mockup. With your card before you, manipulate any content that you feel needs to be changed until you see exactly what you want, and then submit your order.
Making your announcements online is convenient, fun, always gets you what you want, and it will even save you a little money. Online companies don't have all the overhead, and they don't have to prepay for cards to stock on their shelves. Your cards are professionally crafted to your exact specifications, and you will absolutely love them.
Announcements Are A Common OccuranceFor most people, not much time passes before you’re either sending out or receiving an announcement of some kind.
- You just had triplets
- Husband survived it (worthy announcement)
- First birthday party
- High school graduations
- College graduations
- Marriage announcements (all girls)
- Husband survived this too (very worthy announcement)
At the same time you’re sending out all those announcements, you’re receiving them as well, and many of them coming from your daughter’s friend’s parents (tongue twister). And now that your triplets are married, you’re going to start receiving their new baby announcements, and graduations. I think you’re starting to get the picture. It’s endless.
Announcements are a never ending integral part of most everyone’s life.
So how are you going to deal with all those outgoing and incoming announcements? To start with, you better have a rather large calendar, one that is visible to the whole family. That way you can keep in mind why you’re house is going to be full of people on certain dates, and where you need to be on certain other dates.
You will also need to have a plan of distribution. You’ve got to get the word out somehow, so how are you going to disseminate all those announcements?
Several choices available………….
Some people could use just about any or all of those methods. For example, if you owned a mansion on the ocean in southern Florida and you wanted to host a Super Bowl party, you could send out invitations by mail, email, Twitter, Facebook, or just text message one person (include in there that the beer is free), and you will have a full house, trust me. And friends that you haven’t seen since grade school will arrive from Minnesota (where the temperature is still below zero).
However, assuming you don’t own a mansion on the ocean in southern Florida (and it’s not a Super Bowl party), you may want to go another route. While you could use email, twitter, Facebook, or text messaging, nothing makes a statement like sending your announcements by mail. While all those other means can get the word out cheap, who wants to look cheap!
Forgetting cost for a minute, announcements are about very personal events. So why would you want to announce a very personal event in such an impersonal way? Printed announcements have unlimited options. Be creative and WOW your invitees!
- Paper stock in every weight, texture, and color
- Beautiful and artsy font styles
- Contain a colorful picture of your triplets (or not)
- Single page or card insert
- Standard folding type card that opens to your favorite party song
- You can add a very personal message, or we’ll help you write one
- Makes a personalized statement that speaks in ways that emails just can’t
Announcements are for special events and occasions, and they usually have very special people in mind (unless it’s for the Super Bowl, in which case you tell your husband about the text message idea). You want to send out announcements in keeping with those special occasions and special people, and nothing speaks from your heart to others like personalized and printed announcements.
