How special is a photo that’s posted on our fridge rather than our social media page? We see it more than once. It can spark joy in an ordinary moment such as cooking a meal or going for a snack. Most importantly, instead of sharing it in seconds online, someone took the time to put it together and send it.
There could be plenty of those moments hiding on our phones, within our social media accounts or our cloud- even on our digital cameras! Instead of sparking joy, they’re cluttering up our devices. Of course, we could pick our favourites and have them printed, but what if we could create small gifts for friends, family and ourselves that everyone would enjoy?
Introducing Memories My Way
Memories My Way is a place to make custom cards. Originally, the inspiration behind the site was genealogical – to create ancestral cards of one’s family. However, with a wide variety of frames and text layouts, there are many possibilities!
The templates are the perfect size for creating sports cards, miniature postcards, save the dates, invitations, valentines, brief announcements, thank you notes and more!
Do users need design experience?
No! While the finished product is unique, users simply choose from a variety of design options such as frames or “templates,” text layouts, fonts, and colours to create “styles.”
Users create “decks” that can have one style for a consistent look, or multiple styles if they want certain cards to stand out. Plus, lost progress isn’t a concern as there’s an autosave feature. Users can pick up where they left off and make edits or additions anytime.
While cards can be created individually, users can save time by uploading a CSV file to create multiple (a walkthrough is available).
An interactive tour of the site is available at anytime in the design process.
The finished product
With Memories My Way, creating custom cards can be a 100% DIY project. Once ready to print their deck, users can export the deck to a printable PDF that can be printed on their home printer. Alternatively, users can email them to a professional printer.
The cards are ready to share once cut to size. Surely, we’ll want to keep some for ourselves as well!
