We downloaded the available Mac greeting card programs – there are only six we could find that keep their software up to date and seemed safe to download – and tested them over the course of several weeks. In total, we spent about 40 hours designing cards and playing with the programs’ features so we could make well-informed comparisons between them. We created some event and holiday cards from scratch and with the provided templates. In each program, we also made invitations to a summer ice cream party to see if the software could help us make the designs we had in our heads a reality.
– Minimalist design. Measuring only 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches by .25 inches in size, the DASH Co. Wallet can easily fit into your back pocket and help keep your financial items close at hand without having all of the bulk that standard wallets will have. This means that you do not have to worry about unsightly lines in the fabric of your pants or the pants material wearing down and showing the shape of the wallet over time. It also won’t weight down your pocket or your bag due to its lightweight nature.
Still, if you prefer to use your own photos and images and want to create quarter- or half-fold cards, Greeting Box may be a good fit. Since Greeting Box doesn’t have photo editing tools, you need to use another application, such as Apple’s Photos, to correct red-eye and crop images before you upload them. Once the images are in the software, you can only drag, layer, rotate and reverse them. There’s also a transparency option, but compared to Hallmark Card Studio’s design suite, which includes more effects and filters, Greeting Box’s tools are very basic. This program’s biggest benefit is its price – it only costs $9.99. Other greeting cards programs cost between $40.00 and $50.00. Our best pick, Canva, is a subscription service with a fee that, over time, can make it cost even more. While Canva has a limited free version, it can be frustrating to only have access to some of the features and graphics, and Greeting Box gives you full access with your initial download. Also, you can order more clip art directly from Greeting Box for a few extra dollars.

When it comes to a minimalist wallet, there are only so many design elements that can be integrated into the wallet until the wallet can no longer be defined as minimal. While most slim wallets adhere to this principle, this particular model by Nomad shows us just how much functionality can be integrated into a minimalist wallet with a little bit of design ingenuity. The Horween leather will develop a handsome patina over time, while an integrated battery will provide up to a full charge on your iPhone without adding too much bulk to an already slim profile. – Buy It
