American Greetings CreataCard Plus

-- by Kimberly A. Chipman

Let your friends think you spent good money on that card you created right on your own PC. American Greetings CreataCard Plus lets you select a ready-made design or create your own cards, signs and stationery that have a professional, store-bought look. CreataCard comes with more than 3,000 cards you can personalize with names, graphics and text changes. Orders for add-on card packs, which range from three cards for $3.95 to five cards for $4.95, can be placed at the American Greetings Web site (http://creatacard.com)

CreataCard's Art Book feature allows you to choose images from American Greetings' card designs and clip art. If you have a color scanner, you can even import your own pictures. However, you will need a color printer plus good quality paper for a professional look. You can purchase high-quality stock paper from American Greetings or e-mail the company your design to create.

The Forget Me Not calendar feature lets you display your address book appointments on the calendar. CreataCard's screen saver is a colorful paintbrush tool that paints bold, eye-catching designs at a continuous pace. Not only is it mesmerizing to watch-it's entertaining, too.
