A Dash of Inspiration, A Cup of Creativity by Doreen

Father’s Day Design Goodies

If you aren’t already, you should be working on Father’s Day Cards to give your cards time to pass the review cycle and get indexed by search engines.  Today I offer a few links to some fun goodies that will inspire you to think about Dad.

In order to have your cards stand out and be selected by customers, they should have a strong masculine feeling to them.  Be creative, but use colors, themes, elements, fonts and verses appropriate for the recipient.

Curvy fonts, flowery imagery and cute baby animals are not appropriate for the ‘general’ shopper looking for a Father’s Day card. Think of what the men in your life enjoy, what they do in their spare time, the color choices they make, the shows they watch, what they like to collect or build … be inspired by them and you’ll make cards that sell!

Seamless Olive Green Patterns for Photoshop from WebTreats

Sportsmen Silhouettes Shape Preset from All-Silhouettes

Daddy Tie Font Use this font sparingly!

Bubblegum Font from Font SquirrelA nice alternative to the overly used Comic Sans

Dad Commercial Use Scrapbook KitsNot Free, but very affordable!

Color Palettes for Men from Color Hunter

Working this far in advance will ensure that your Father’s Day Cards are in the market and ready when those shoppers come to visit … see you next week!
