OS X Photos has a fantastic and simple interface to create high quality greeting cards. Cards can be ordered through Apple… or you can print them for yourself at home! All you need is card stock, a printer and 5 minutes is OS X Photos. Watch this video tip and I'll show you step by step how to create your own cards.

Hi Scott: thanks for the tip. I noticed that you were able to customize your card so that it had no text inside–basically only the image on the front and your text on the back. Do you know (I can’t find a way) to customize a card as you did if you choose letterpress cards–and not just the folded stock which is what i think you chose as your starting point. Thanks



Hey Scott, 

Thanks for the great tip on how to print your own. I’m finding though that when I do leave text inside the card (unlike your example where you remove it) the text prints on the wrong side of the inside of the card. Have you been able to get that to work?
