MAKING AND SENDING CHRISTMAS CARDS

Each year around this time, I start thinking about making and sending Christmas cards.  It is a daunting task, but it feels so rewarding to have it done.  And who out there doesn’t LOVE receiving a Christmas card?  The past few years I have done cards through a few different avenues.  Here is a list of what companies I have used and what I liked about each one.

  • Shutterfly has the most beautiful cards and the variety makes it easy to find a design that fits your taste.  This year, I love this design and this one!  You can go as simple as a traditional card (like this one) or a super-fancy gold foiled, fold out card (like this one).  You can choose a plain white envelope or deck it out with a patterned liner. Shutterfly also offers to stamp envelopes with a return address and even address and send your cards for you!  All for a pretty price…but if you are willing to pay for ease, Shutterfly is the place to go.  And right now they are having 40% off most holiday cards!
  • Vistaprint is offers GREAT value.  You can get postcards as low as $50 for 100!  They also offer cute designs for traditional cards, have the option to upload your own design, and even have experts who will make you a custom design.  Use promo code “HOLIDAY” to take 20%-50% off.  Here are a few of their stock designs that are super cute:                                                                                                                                      Rounded corner holiday cards                                                                                     
  • Costco is another great place to go for Christmas cards. They offer photo cards (with envelopes included) at just $14.99 for 50 cards.  That is a bargain and they have some cute designs, like this one. They also offer premium stationary Christmas cards which will cost you more than the photo cards, but the quality is great.  This is what I have done the past few years.  I usually upload my own design, but they also have cute stock options, like this one.

Who else have you used for Holiday cards?  Hopefully this helps you get a jump start to making and sending Christmas cards this year!

Here is our card from last year.  Hopefully I can get my cards designed and out in time this year!
