There are a variety of websites that offer free cards. Examples include greeting card companies such as American Greetings and printer companies such as Brother.
Users can choose from finished designs and templates that allow them to add their own pictures or photos.
Add personalized text to the inside of a card, or use a template to add customized text to the card face or insert images.
Open the printer properties window and choose the custom settings option. Enter the paper size and choose the paper type if the properties window provides the option.
Insert one or more sheets of card stock paper into the paper tray. When printing multiple cards, avoid adding more than five sheets of paper at one time, as inkjet printers can have trouble processing thicker paper.
Print the inside part of the card first to limit wear on the face of the card.
To finish off the card, put the paper back in the tray and print the outside part of the card.
