Technology is not meant to destroy the card making industry. Although it is now offering us with quite a number of easier and more convenient means to send our message across, the card making industry does not consider technology as a foe. Instead it is a friend that could help us produce more attractive cards faster. Indeed, it's all a matter of perspective. Looking at technology as our friend could bring a lot of good and positive things in the world of card making.
For one, we are already introduced with the world of electronic cards. Making cards that are powered by Flash presentations and other technological platforms is also card making just the same. We are still coming up with our own design of a card. Our personality could still be seen in the finished product that we have. Still, it would be an effective medium to show someone how much we value them. This is quite apt for some of our friends and family who are known to be as computer whiz and geeks.
But if you still want to go for the conventional printed greeting card, then you might want to use the computer, too, in making your card. There are already quite a number of card making software that we could use. This software could guide us as we work on our card making projects. It could provide us with everything that we need for our card making project. It could also guide us so that we would not go overboard with our card making ideas and designs.
Using the computer in card making also give us a picture on how our card would look like before printing it. This allows us to revise and make some necessary changes for our card before we finally put it in paper. This keeps us from wasting paper, ink, and other card making supplies in the event that we could already see that something is wrong with our card when it is already in paper.
Indeed, technology is not the enemy of card making. Anyone who has the passion and dedication to work n a card making project could do so, with or without technology. Looking at technology as a friend and not as a foe could open our eyes in the many other possible means that we could do to work on our card making projects.
