In our previous post, we’ve mentioned that getting into safe activities during Halloween is best for everyone. Though people need to stay indoors, it doesn’t mean that you can’t go tricking, scaring, or greeting your friends no more. In fact, this is the best time to surprise them with something new – using PDFs to send out creative eCards!
How to Create your own eCard
In these modern times, if you want to create a digital file you simply open your computer, download software and use that tool to create your card. But with DeftPDF, there’s no need to download anything anymore. You simply go to the website (https://deftpdf.com) and start using the online tool for free! For those new to such technology, here’s a step by step guide on how to use it:
Step one: Go to DeftPDF.com and click Start Editing on the homepage
Step two: Click Start with a BLANK DOCUMENT if you don’t have any templates yet, but if you already have a readily available card (or if you want to use our samples), then simply click UPLOAD and upload your PDF.
Step three: Edit the PDF file by adding in shapes, texts, photos, or any other element. If you’re starting from a blank document, you can collate multimedia first and insert it in this editor.
Step three: Once your done editing, you can now save by clicking APPLY CHANGES then download the new PDF file.
Note: You can also use other applications to create a PDF. These applications include Word and PowerPoint – both of which can hold multimedia and can be used for creative means. If you don’t want to be online during the creation of the PDF, then these applications are best suited for you.
Unique Ideas for your PDF
For some surprising and effectively spooky Halloween eCard, you need to be creative with the design and content! So here are a few suggestions from DeftPDF to spice up that eCard that you are cooking!
