How to Design & Print Recipe Cards (on your phone)

Jenna created these cards right on her tablet in the Project Life App on her phone and then ordered 4×6 Persnickety thick press prints on matte. We think they turned out great! You can use ANY design program to create the card. Upload .jpeg or .png files to order the cards. Single sided cards are available on matte, linen, watercolor and pearl finish. Basic matte is preferred and works great with any pen. Don’t forget print bleed, allow .25″ on each side for trimming and alignment.

5 quick tips TO better FOOD PHOTOS

  1. Find the light! Use natural light and turn off the flash
  2. Get up Close. If your iPhone camera offers Portrait mode, use it!
  3. Turn On Camera Grid. This will help align a flat lay photo (more from apple)
  4. Watch the Background. When taking photos, pay attention to the background, hands, feet, etc. Move the camera or the subject.
  5. Edit. Phones are backlit, printed photos will be darker. Using the basic Auto Enhance feature in your native camera works great!
