Quick and Easy Photo Cards Using Photographer’s Edge Products

My husband Bill, in addition to his full-time career is also a photographer. I am so proud of his photography and want to share with you how he makes quick and easy professional looking photo cards. I know we all love making our own cards, but thought you might enjoy seeing a different technique using products from Photographer’s Edge. Now for a quick disclaimer before we get started. I am not a paid spokesperson, nor do they sponsor my blog or provide any free products…. I just love them!

The photo on the right is Antelope Canyon, Page, Arizona. The one on the left is La Push Beach, Washington. Bill used Photographer’s Edge cards to mat these photos. You can click here to see their website and scroll down to see my video on how easy it is to make these cards.

This photo was taken at Shore Acres Park in Oregon. Bill used a calendar from Photographer’s Edge to complete this project. The card folds to fit in the envelope that is also provided, and there is a magnet on the back. I go into more detail on the video.

Here is the technical information for the camera and printer:
Camera: Canon 7d
Printer: Canon Pro9000 Mark II
Paper: Canon Photo Paper Plus Gloss II

Thanks for visiting and a special thanks to Bill for the amazing cards!
