I’ve received some really great holiday photo cards in the mail. A family member always sends one from her journeys during the year. Sometimes she’s holiday a giant fish, sometimes she’s posing next to a large deer she just shot and gutted. The fact that she barely stands five feet tall makes it hilarious. We once tried an ugly Christmas sweater card, but it turns out, we can’t pull off that goofiness.
I’ve received cards with people’s children and it’s awesome to see how they’ve grown from year to year. I’ve gotten cards with pictures of pets dressed up as Santa, his elves or the Holiday Armadillo (hehe, “Friends”). I’ve received some of friends on the beach, I sent one of us snorkeling, and some have come in with sweeping views of a loved one’s vacation hot spot.
Photo cards are the best. And if you’re taking pictures from my fall photo checklist or you’re trying out some new tricks with your kids from Pinterest, use the photo on your holiday cards. If you are just dabbling in photography, pick one of your best shots and put it on your card. Your friends and family would like to see what you’ve been up to.
I’ve actually already ordered my cards for the year, but they are under wraps. However, I can tell you Tiny Prints offers some amazing cards. The Tiny Prints 2012 Holiday Collection offers all new designs and the new Premium DoubleThick Matte Paper, something they tout as the most luxurious cardstock yet.
There are bright colors, traditionals looks, fun embellishments and religious and Hanukkah options…and even cards for those pet owners that like to showcase their fur babies.
And Tiny Prints has lots of steals and deals so make sure you check them out before you place your order.
I know it’s barely Halloween and that the holidays in between now and Christmas deserve their team, but you have to think about these things! Holiday Photo Cards require a little prep and planning, but they will all be worth it in the end.
