I love family history and have created these hilarious cards sure to inject some laughter into anyone engaged in family history research.
THIS IS FOR AN INSTANT DIGITAL CARD DOWNLOAD ONLY!
NO PHYSICAL ITEM WILL BE SHIPPED. I will email you a link to instantly download your files, once payment is confirmed. Each card, once printed, is 5″ x 7″ in size and will require an A7 size envelope to mail (5 1/4 x 7 1/4).
This one reads:
“I know finding your roots is pretty popular these days. But I’m not sure I wanted to know EVERYTHING. Specially the bad stuff. Yikes. Happy Birthday, but let me hold on to the story in my head!
USING THESE CARDS
As all researchers know, genealogical research can be long and tedious, and a little humor goes a long way towards lightening the load. People often send these to siblings, parents and cousins. They also enjoy guessing which members of the family the card messages best describe. You can email the image to friends and family, and you can post to groups on Facebook. They are lots of fun!
If you plan to print more than one or two at a time, I *highly recommend* using a third party print site, such as Vistaprint.com, Shutterfly.com or Moo.com.
When mailing, you will need A7 Size envelopes—5 ¼ X 7 ¼. These are available at any crafts store.
You will also need Adobe Reader installed to view PDF files on your computer. It is freely available for installation at https://get.adobe.com/reader/.
