Upload Your own eCard and Invitation Designs from Photos or Graphic Art

Upload your own artwork to send customized holiday eCards.

It's almost time for the winter holidays to begin. Many people are planning their Thanksgiving and Seasons Greetings eCards as well as planning holiday parties. And we're here to help!

One of the reasons people choose CorpNote is our ability to let you upload your own artwork or photos to use as the image in an eCard. CorpNote custom designs are great for:

  • Artists & makers who want to showcase their skills.
  • Business people with products, branding or imagery who want their eCards, invitations and surveys to uniquely represent their company.
  • Anyone who wants to showcase their own photos, graphics or artwork, and easily send it to lots of people with features like view-rate tracking, unsubscribe/subscribe tools and professional, advertising-free email delivery.

Here's What's New

Just in time for the holidays, we have increased the number of photos and graphic art designs you can upload into your account. To meet the growing needs of our most active members, you can now upload up to 100 of your own eCard and invitation designs which can be used in an unlimited number of eCards/invitations and templates you create each month. Multi-User Plan administrators are also able to share their eCard/invitation designs with their members, which when combined with their 100 uploaded images, gives each of their members up to 200 company branded eCard designs.

How do Uploaded Designs work?

When you upload a photo or graphic design, you can use that image as your eCard design and then compose your message and send to your recipients like you would any of CorpNote's eCard designs. For example, if you are at an event, you can take a photo with your iPhone, upload the photo into your CorpNote account, compose your message and then send it to your recipients. Your uploaded designs have the same tracking and follow-up capabilities as any other eCard.

You can also use your uploaded design as an invitation. Click to create a new eCard and click on the 'My Designs' tab. Select your uploaded design and then, on the edit message screen, click on the menu for "Include Event RSVP" and select one of your events.

Here's an example of a custom Birthday Card design

Resources for making your Own eCard/Invitation Designs

When you shop for a greeting card in a store, you may not always see a design or a message that meets your exact needs. That's where creating your own design really comes in handy! We have several resources available to help you easily create something unique this holiday season or any time of year.

We will also be adding more resources and videos throughout November so stay tuned! It is our goal to empower you with the tools you need to customize CorpNote to meet your exact needs.

Quick Tip for Making a Custom Design from a Photo on your Phone

If you have an iPhone or iPad, you more than likely have the ability to use the 'markup tools' and other editing apps to edit photos on your device. This is great for quickly adding text and design elements to photos, and for compositing multiple photos into a single image.

My favorite free photo editing app for the iPhone, iPad and desktop computers is Pixlr. Check out our tutorial on how to use Pixlr with your mobile device to create your own custom photos and artwork.
