About our Greeting Cards
All greeting cards on Adrian’s Elephant were created using templates and elements found in Canva.com and are completely free to download and print for personal purposes. Read more about Canva’s use policies here.
All cards are also customizable via Canva. Some cards may require a Canva subscription for premium elements; click on the individual template for details. (If you don’t have a subscription and only want a single design, please contact me. I will create it for you.)
Cards are sized to print on standard 8.5″ x 11″ paper, and are also compatible with greeting card templates such as those produced by Avery or many other vendors of office supplies. If your template is smaller than 8.5″ x 11″, you will need to scale the design to fit. You can also print via many online services or through a local print shop.
Adrian’s Elephant and Sea Glass Parenting will never charge for our downloadable products, but if you would like to leave a tip via Ko-Fi, please click here. You can also sign up for the Adrian’s Elephant mailing list to be notified of future designs (emails sent ONLY monthly).
