Custom Card making Tutorial:

Choosing an appropriate card size

Custom Card making


Card making may well be the single most personalization crafting skill that a person can develop in order to create gift that are uniquely designed for all occasions.  Custom Cards of all types are given for any number of occasions throughout the year.  Presenting a card that has been customized especially for the recipient-and occasion- will always be with great pride.  Card size, paper type, and preferred embellishments are primarily considered in card making preparations.


Card Sizes


The size of card that will personalize it- an occasion or event- in the most appropriate way is generally guided by preset standards.  It is most helpful to have a diagram of sort on hand in order to match these standards which are commonly defined as; #1 small,A1, A2, A6, A7, A9, 6” Square and #10 letter.  These custom card sizes are achieved by scoring and folding a starting size paper type of choice to achieve the coordinating dimensions in inches.  The following diagram demonstrates these custom card sizes, envelope sizes, and, common uses for each choice.

The size of card that is chosen for any card making gift creation is by no means a requirement of card making.  The sizing standards allow for matching envelopes precisely, and adherence to a particular etiquette, or, rule of thumb. 




Custom cards can be given for any occasion throughout the year.  A personalized card will always demonstrate greater appreciation for any occasion over store bought greetings, and the very first rule of card making  is choosing the correct card size for its use.  With a bit of knowledge- and some practice- appropriately sized, and uniquely customized cards, can be created in very little time and become the best customized gifts.  Thank you cards, announcements, and invitations each are commonly sized anywhere from #1 small to #10 letter.
