Instructions For Printing the Greeting Cards
You could print on an ordinary sheet of paper, but Vernon says to use card stock-- the kind that folds into a 5"x 6.5"card. Try Recollections Value Pack Cards and Envelopes, from most any crafts store.
From the Here is Your Free Greeting Card email, open the file entitled CardFRONT.png
Go to your File Menu and select "Print".
At this point, most printers give you a dialogue box with options in it. It might look something like this:
5. For paper size, choose US Letter (8.5” x 11”)
6. For Orientation, choose Portrait (not Landscape).
7. If you have a choice between Scale and Scale to fit, choose Scale. 100% is good but anything 95% or higher is fine.
8. Now place a piece of (unfolded) card stock in the center of the paper tray or feeder of your printer, and Print.
9. After printing CardFRONT.png, close that one and open CardINSIDE.png.
10. Just like before, go to the File Menu and choose “Print”.
11. For the inside of the card, you'll use the piece of card stock you just printed on in step #8 above. Put it back in paper tray or feeder of your printer, centered, and making sure it’s facing so that the computer will print on the blank side—not the side that now has artwork on it.
Don't know which side your computer will print on? Test it with a plain sheet of paper. Write “This Side Down” on one side and put it in the printer with – you got it—that side down. Print something (anything). Did it print on the side that was down or the side that was up? Make a note of it.
Vernon's printer always prints on the side of the paper that's facing up, so he would put the card stock in the paper tray with the picture down, the blank side up.
12. All set? Now Print.
13. Take the card out of the computer. Fold it. It should look something like this:
14. Ta da! Success. If you have lots of friends, you might want to print extra cards and save them for a rainy day. (Or for a day when you need a greeting card in a hurry, regardless of atmospheric conditions.)
(It's not complicated! Just follow the step by step instructions and you'll breeze right through. Color printer or Black & White; your choice.)
