DIY Watercolor Thank You Cards

Cards that have watercolor designs can make positive impressions on recipients at any time of year.

Here are a few pointers regarding the pros and cons of painting your own  watercolor thank you cards or ordering bulk cards printed with watercolor-style cover designs.

Watercolor Card Designs for Any Occasion

Cards that have watercolor designs can portray a beautiful scene to recipients. Watercolor is an expressive art medium, and these types of images tend to be calming and inspiring. A much larger number of bulk card covers feature cartoon or stylized artwork than watercolor designs, making cards inspired by this painting method a pleasant surprise.

The color scheme of a watercolor card may vary based on the purpose of the card. From holiday color schemes to designs rendered in warm or cool shades, these card designs have a uniquely creative appeal. Browse a selection of cards with watercolor-style graphics to get large quantities of high-quality cards that have a painted look. Painting your own cards with watercolor paint can prove to be a time-consuming challenge.

Custom Printed Cards vs DIY Watercolor Cards

Creative personal and business senders may consider creating custom art cards with blank card stock and watercolor paints. While this can be a fun project if you only plan to make and send a small number of cards, trying to hand-paint a large quantity of custom thank you cards requires considerable amounts of preparation, time and money for specialized art and card supplies.

Watercolor paint cannot be applied to every weight or finish of card stock. Select absorbent stock that will resist curling and warping during or after the application of water-based paint. Aspiring card artists also have to wait for cards to dry prior to sending. It may also be helpful to seal paint to prevent card cover designs from running if the envelope and card happen to become damp in transit. Ordering custom-printed cards can save time and money while still giving each and every thank you card a personal touch.

Find the Right Watercolor Card Cover

Custom cards with watercolor covers show the consideration that goes into the design. Recipients of printed or painted watercolor greeting cards can appreciate the artistic presentation created by the sender.

Browse thank you cards by category to narrow down your options. You can choose from more generic thank you cards or occasion-specific cards. If you are sending cards for a holiday, you can also find cards with festive cover designs and text.

Customize the Message Inside Thank You Cards

The interior of bulk thank you cards offers senders the most options for personalization. Write your own message or use a message template. You can also add a logo or photo to the interior to make every card in an order a unique expression of your gratitude.

Other ways to customize bulk cards include one or more signatures, printed names and the option to include a charity line. If you decide to donate 20% of the card order cost to a registered charity of your choice, you can promote this cause to card recipients with a charity line that appears beneath the sender information inside each thank you card.

Envelopes for Watercolor Thank You Cards

One of the benefits of buying cards in bulk are the included envelopes. Every card comes with envelopes designed to accommodate its size and orientation. Some card styles have lined or unlined envelopes. All envelopes offer the option for identical custom text on the flap, such as your return address or any message of your choosing.

If you are planning to send a large number of watercolor cards, getting an order custom printed can be the most efficient ways to create cards with watercolor cover designs. Another way to show thoughtfulness with these cards is to donate a percentage of the cost of cards to the charity of your choice.
