Photo Collage Thank You Note Cards For Newlyweds

Share This:

Everyone loves to share photos and that carries over to sending personalized cards. At Zazzle, cards like these photo collage cards are perfect for newlyweds who want to send personalized thank-you notes.

Flamingo Couple, Photo Collage Cards

Our flamingo couple design allows for two lines of custom wording, in modern handwritten font, and the initials of the bride and groom.

The tropical background image is of palm trees near a beach in pretty sea blue color. An elegant pair of flamingos, one black and one white, decorate the lower corner. The back of the cards are also pretty with images and designs that add a touch of elegance to the overall appearance.

Our sample wording “Thank you for the amazing love and support! Your presence made our wedding day very special.” The first initials of the couple are the signature on this card and they are placed between the black and white flamingos in the corner. A signature is not really necessary with all those beautiful photos placed on the card, so delete the sample “initials” if you prefer. Don’t know what to say? Use our example or read our How to Say Thank You page to get some ideas.

Each photo template should be replaced with photos that are orientated like the samples. Square photo templates should be replaced with photos containing the subject in the center. These photos cannot be moved once added.

Seashells and Ocean Multi-Photo Thank-You Cards

Our older and very popular version of the 5-template photo card is shown below. A big sand dollar holds the “thank you” text with more custom text in the center of the card.

A tropical beach scene is the background image for this card. Collectable seashells in the lower corner include a blue clam shell, spotted junonia and big white sand dollar. This card has the same photo collage set-up as the card above. Choose pictures that fit well into each space. A personal message and signature will go in the center.

The back of this thank-you note contains sea water at the shore. The size is 5×7 inches and paper upgrades are possible for additional cost. White envelopes are included.

Besides these unique thank-you notes, custom postage and address labels can be added to outgoing mail.

Beach Christmas Photo Template Sticker, How to Center a Photo

Share This:

This beach Christmas photo template sticker comes in two sizes: 1.5 inch and 3 inch. The wording will be easier to read on the larger sticker. Use it on the back of the envelope when sending beach-themed or tropical Christmas cards.

Square Photo Sticker, Beach Christmas Theme

A tropical beach scene of ocean water at the sandy shore is the background for two areas of custom text. I am loving the new fonts that are now available to use at Zazzle and this new sticker shows the modern, handwritten style of Revellyna font. All you need to do is type your choice of wording into the text template lines on the product page.

Add a photo – horizontal (landscape) photos work best – with the focus subject as close to the center as possible. If your photo is not centered, read on. I will explain on this page how to move a photo template. The photo can be moved left or right by the customer in the “customize” area, and it’s easy to do. (You will not be able to move it up and down on this sticker).

How to Center Your Photo Template

Use the “change” button in blue to upload your own photo into the template area, replacing the sample photo seen. In my example I have added the black and white photo of a couple, but it is slightly too far to the right.
If your photo needs to be centered, use the “click to customize further” link beneath the photo template area.

The design page below is what you will see in the customize section. It may look overwhelming, but it’s easy to move the photo and make it centered on the sticker. Follow the steps outlined here.

how to move a photo template
Click on the photo in the list and then move it with the arrows.

On the design page, find your photo in the “text and images” section to the right. Click on it. Then go to the lower left side of the page and use the toggle arrows to move the photo left or right.

Once the photo looks good – keeping it within the circle – click the “done” button at the top of the page and it will take you back to the product page where it can be purchased.

Photo is changed and moved into center position.

Be sure to change the text as you wish, with your own signature, and choose the size sticker needed. I recommend the larger, 3 inch size.
Because I have made the template with a horizontal sample photo, there will only be room to move the image side to side. If you use a vertical photo, use one with the subject in the center, or contact me (bluehydpdc@gmail.com) and I’ll fit it in for you.

This tutorial for fitting a photo into a template will work for any photo template, on any type of product, at the Zazzle site.

Vertical Photo Cards For Christmas and The New Year

Share This:

Glossy photo cards are the choice of many to send for Christmas and the new year. In the Holiday Store we have a few new vertical photo cards designed with a tropical sea-theme.

The first is a sea blue card with white starfish and white, custom text in modern, swirling font styles. Choose a favorite photo, in vertical (portrait) orientation, and add it to the photo template.

The sample wording which says, “Joyous, Blessed & / Happy New Year” (underneath the line that reads, “wish you a”) can be changed. All glossy photo cards, like this one, in our Photo Card Collection have easy to use templates.

Change the text as you please. Names go on the top line, and be sure to sign for the dog as well! Our pets are part of the family and many couples and families make sure the fur baby is in the pictures.

More examples of how this card’s wording could look:

wording sample
Sample Text Change 1: Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

sample wording on Christmas card
Sample Text Change 2: Merry & Bright Christmas Season

You may come up with something different, and as long as the wording doesn’t get close to the edge of the card, it will be fine to use.

Don’t want the starfish images on this card? They can be removed in the “Customize” section, or contact me for help with design changes.

The second new glossy photo card in our store was created with newlyweds in mind. Couples love to celebrate that special “first married Christmas” and this vertical card allows couples to share their bliss with friends and family.

Beautiful Palm Trees on Turquoise For Newlywed Couple

Share This:

Our beach-themed newlywed photo card contains modern typography and a photo template. Beautiful palm trees in turquoise blue-green color enhances the tropical feel.

Names and Photo on Front

Add a personal message inside the card over a background image of palm trees by the beach.

The sample message inside is only a suggestion, and can be replaced with your choice of wording. In fact, this card can be used to thank more than guests.

One idea is to replace the photo of the newlyweds with one of the flower girl, and use it to say thanks to her. Wouldn’t she love to have her picture on the front of a card!

Wedding Invitations and Matching Products Made by Zazzle Designers

After the ring and the “I Do!” it’s time to begin the planning. Large or small, weddings are events that cause great stress and take massive amounts of time to coordinate. The invitations are usually an important part of that planning. The invitation, or more likely “save the date” cards, will be the first impression guests see. The paper is going to set the stage for the upcoming event.

The internet contains many, many places to find wedding invitations of all types. Some offer upscale foil or letterpress printing. Typography is big these days and unique lettering can add charm and interest. Invitations come in all shapes and sizes and at many price points. I dare say you can find paper in any theme imaginable. If your preference is plain and simple, minimalist, or black and white, you will find those too.

My stores, including Sandpiper Wedding, are run through Zazzle. I talk about this more on my About page. Many professional designers create wedding suites in association of Zazzle, and Zazzle offers specialty paper as beautiful as any found online.

I decided to write this blog post for those people who have never heard of Zazzle, or didn’t realize they offer wedding suites. Zazzle is known as the best place to find customizable designs. Combine custom options with beautiful designs and couples can create invitations or entire sets with their own wording. See the finished product on the screen before you buy.

Pretty blue palm trees make up our newest wedding invitation design. The photography image has been enhanced and turned light blue for the image on the front. The subtle reference to a tropical location is the perfect backdrop for custom black text. On the back, the same image has a sepia tone. Tall palm trees sway in the warm breeze with thatched umbrellas lining the shoreline. (See the original image below.)

Palm trees are one of the most recognizable images associated with the tropics. There is a surprisingly large variety of palm trees and not all are tall and swaying.

Back of Invitation

Palm trees are often added to tropical landscapes and often grow wild in tropical locations. Tall, stately palms add immeasurable interest to a tropical yard. See photos at HGTV where tall palms bring life to a yard.

Those of us living in the tropics can also have potted palms, or smaller specimens included in a garden setting. The Parlor Palm has no real trunk, just long feathery leaves. Depending on the type, palm leaves can be bright green or silver gray. The fronds, or leaves, can be feathery and soft-looking, or stiff and pointed.

If you’ve ever watched hurricane footage, or been in a hurricane, you’ve no doubt witnessed how well palm trees withstand very high winds. While tall oak trees with long branches can be broken or totally unearthed, the palm tree simply bends and sways in the high winds. The fronds may blow off, but the tree remains. Rarely does a palm tree fall in high winds.
