What Makes a Top-Notch Photo Card Service?
While all photo card services allow users to upload personal images and information, people should base their selection on specific features. Some services offer more customization, and others offer delivery services. Photo card services should be judged on these criteria.
Features: Services that offer multiple design templates and low minimum order quantities should be the base line. Good services will also alert the customer of any errors or send paper proofs before printing the final order.
Customization: If a photo card service uses templates, customers should be able to alter the designs. The best services offer several customization options and tools during the design process. All services allow custom pictures and text, and some services allow the user to move or delete these elements during the design process.
Quality & Selection: Photo card services that deliver a proof before printing the final tend to offer the best image and paper quality. Beyond the quality, look for a service that will offer templates for any event. Also, the service should offer both traditional and contemporary designs for any occasion.
Help & Support: With any web-based service, a few technical problems are inevitable. Good photo card services will offer multiple support options, like telephone, email or live chat. Better services will also offer forums and FAQs on their website. Finally, the service should offer a satisfaction guarantee.
Photo cards allow people to give a personal touch to their greetings for any situation. Photo card services let anyone design the perfect greeting card without any art or design training.
