Parlay your photos into cards and calendars

Use image-editing software and Websites to turn your digital photos into handcrafted greeting cards and other holiday gifts.

<h2>Size It Up </h2><br><br>You can print greeting cards of any size, as long as the paper for the project can fit in your printer (and in the envelopes that you plan to use). The easiest kind of card to make is the single-fold variety: Take--basically, a sheet of paper folded down the middle and opened like a book. To make this kind of card, you'll need to print one side of the paper, and then feed it through the printer a second time and print it again. <br><br>For this example, let's print on 4-by-6-inch photo paper. When folded into a 4-by-3-inch rectangle, a card of this size fits nicely into small envelopes that are available at any office supply store.

When we were kids, our friends and family exchanged holiday cards decorated with artwork and messages thoughtfully provided by Hallmark. It wasn't as though we lacked the creativity to make our own cards; we simply didn't own our own printing press. But these days, you can use your digital photo collection and a photo-editing program to create high-quality customized cards for everyone on your mailing list.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
