I went to the store to buy a birthday card once and couldn’t believe how much they were charging for a boring card with a generic stock photo of a birthday cake on the front and some canned “sentiments” printed inside. Five bucks for a card? That’s more than I spent on the gift! Well, not really more, but close. I’ve been making my own cards, invitations, and thank you notes since then, and you should too.
