Heartfelt thanks

After all the hard work of planning a wedding and then the hustle and bustle of the big day itself has died down, there is still one big task to accomplish.

Thank you cards.

When faced with expressing your gratitude to the friends and family who joined you and supported you on your very special day you may be left with lack of words. A photo card gives you more options for making a card unique. Here are some ideas for photos to use in your thank you card.


Make a plan with your wedding photographer to get a shot on your wedding day of the two of you holding a Thank You sign. It can even be handmade in your own writing – it still gets the message across.


Take a moment during your honeymoon to take a picture for your Thank You cards. Something as simple as your handprints and wedding bands in the sand make a charming card photo.


Getting married is a big news but moving to a new address after the wedding is big too! Share your new address with everyone in your thank you card and feature a photo of you in front of your new abode.

Photo thank you cards help you express how you feel beyond words. These creative ideas will help you design a card that will make the recipients want to hold onto it. And photo cards aren’t hard to create. You can even use a photo you snapped with your phone when you were on your honeymoon. With the My Kodak Moments app, you can make prints, collages and these Thank You cards right on your phone.

The app can be downloaded for iOS or Android here.

The most wonderful time of the year – last day of school

After Christmas and birthdays, the last day of school might be the most exciting day for a kid. It’s pretty good day for teachers too and for parents… well maybe it’s not their favorite day.

Whether you are a kid, a teacher or a parent, here are some project ideas that use photos that will make that last day a fun one.

For kids:


See your friends off on summer vacation with a sweet sendoff. You can add text to your photo with the Kodak Picture Kiosk before stapling it to the bag of candy treats.


Or you could add a powdered drink mix and a crazy straw to a photo for a summer treat. Both of these are quick and easy goodies to make for classmates.


You can’t forget about your teacher. Make a thank you gift that they will really enjoy. Add some garden tools and a photo with a message to a flower pot that your teacher can use over the summer.


Kids might need help with this project but what teacher wouldn’t love this colorful wreath personalized with their photo to hand in their classroom?

For teachers:


Let your students know how much you enjoyed having them in class with a sand pail and a photo to remember you by.


Take a picture of each student holding a sign stating what they want to be when they grow up. When combined into a collage, it makes an adorable print for parents to look back on.

For parents:

Photo greeting cards are the perfect format for creating Keep in Touch cards. You can add text including contact information and a photo (so kids can tell Sally from Sarah), that will help friends stay in touch and have play dates over the summer.

After a year of classes you might have a big pile of artwork, tests and report cards. Scan them in at a Kodak Picture Kiosk and make it into a photo book to cut down on clutter around the house.


Don’t forget to take a picture of your little student on that last day of school to pair with a photo from the first day of school. You will love seeing how they grew over a year. If you just took a quick picture with your phone, you can print these photos with the My Kodak Moments app.


Since there are long days stretching before you until school starts again, a photo to-do list will help the kids stay on task.

All of these projects and more can be found on our School Tips and Projects page.

Inspiration for Graduation


There are new designs to choose from for Graduation announcements and matching Thank You cards at Kodak Picture Kiosk and the My Kodak Moments app. These photo cards are super handy if you don’t have a lot of time to wait for announcements. You can visit a Kiosk near you or even use a picture on your phone to create cards fast.


While you are printing cards, why not print out a few pictures for these projects for graduation? Save a tassle with a photo inside a clear ornament for a graduation keepsake.


Create a “Break in Case of Emergency” bottle for a graduate that is heading off to college in the fall.


Don’t forget about the little graduates! There are card designs just for them available too.


Use a photo to create a diploma for the lil grads that they will be able to look back on in the years to come.
