How to print your own Valentine’s Day cards
Printing your own Valentines is easy with these free printables.
I typically use HP 32# paper for printables, but it is a little thin for cards. I recommend using a bright white cardstock for sturdier cards. See side by side comparisons in this post about the best paper for printables.
There are two sets of smaller cards. Both options have an optional printable back page. There are two pages of postcard sized valentines with four cards each and one page with six smaller, card-exchange type cards
For either card smaller card type:
- First ,print as many copies of the front page(s) as you want.
- Next, place the pages back into your printer.
- Print multiple copies of the correct is back page with “to” and “from” on it. This back page has dotted lines to help you cut the cards out with a paper trimmer.
Pay close attention to your printer to ensure you place the pages in the paper tray correctly. There should be a little symbol showing you how to place the sheets. I recommend doing a single test page if you’re not sure how to print double sided on your particular printer. Many, but not all, home printers print on the front-facing side of the sheet, which means you would place the already printed portion to the back. You also need to determine whether your printer prints from the top down or bottom up.
Finally, cut the cards apart with a paper cutter or trimmer. I’ve used my paper trimmer with a guide wire for years – I love how easy it is to make accurate cuts with. You can also use scissors, but it takes longer and is less accurate.
