Do you know some of the Best Dads Ever? Would you like to acknowledge their singular achievement with a unique card? Father's Day cards are a time-honored way of telling dads, "You know what? You're alright." And here are some time-honored tips to save money doing that.
Tip #1: Use your own photo
Dads like to see the things that made them dads: their children. It's confirmation that, "Yes, I am the one who is dad." So, it's likely you'll be including a picture of dad's kids (or grandkids) on the card. If you weren't planning on doing this, you should rethink your carding strategy. Your phone probably takes fantastic pictures, and there are a bunch of websites where you can edit and optimize your own photos, like Pixlr.com
. Then upload the photo to the website making your cards and, presto, no professional photographer necessary.
Tip #2: Deliver by hand
"You can tell a lot about a person from a handshake," say dads across the world. Nothing speaks to a dad like a good, old-fashioned handshake. Cut out the postage cost, walk straight up to the dads in your life, look them square in the eye, shake their hand, give them a crisp envelope, and say "Here. Happy Father's Day."
