I LOVE receiving holiday cards. It make me smile to open up our mailbox and finding holiday cards from family and friends near and far. I even receive holiday cards from some of the companies that I work with which is really nice too.
It makes my day to have a mailbox full of cards. 🙂
I especially love photo cards. It’s fun to see how much children have grown over the past year. I even keep a lot of the photo holiday cards so that I can look back over the years and see how much my nieces, nephews and best friend’s children have grown over the years.
There are several places where you can order photo cards from. Often they come with a hefty price tag. You can save money on some sites but the quality and variety is not that great.
Vistaprint is well known for their business cards. In fact I have purchased business cards from them over the years. They offer quality cards and budget friendly prices.
Vistaprint offers consumers a lot more than just business cards. They offer different times of business materials (flyers, postcards, magnets, signs and banners…). They also offer personalized stationary, mugs, cellphone cases, calendars and invitations. You can even customize clothing on Vistaprint. They are your “one stop shop” for most of your personalized and customized needs.
Vistaprint also offers customized holiday cards. Most sets start at $10.00 for 10 cards.
What I love about Vistaprint is that they give you full control over the design. You choose what photo (or photos) you want to use as well as what you want the cards to say and the placement of the text. You can even customize the font for your text too.
Creating a card is super easy to do. If you can do a Word document you can pretty much create a custom photo card. It’s very easy to do. I can be “technologically challenged” at times and I had no problem creating beautiful cards.
Here are a few cards that I designed.
I kept my family’s name off the cards for this post for obvious reasons.
The photos I used include a picture my family took just a few weeks ago with some of the Rockettes at Radio City’s Christmas Spectacular, a “selfie” my husband and I took in front of the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center and a sweet picture of my kids taking a “selfie” with each other with New York City in the background (my daughter is pretending to kiss my son on the forehead).
I love how easy it is to customize the cards. You can crop photo, change text, change the words and more. It’s as simple as 1-2-3. With some cards you can even customize the inside or the back of the card too.
If you think it’s too late to create cards, it’s not! You can still order by December 19th for holiday delivery. Vistaprint is even offering a 50% discount on holiday cards.
I think a fun idea is to send out New Year’s cards instead of Christmas cards. Vistaprint has several wonderful New Year’s deigns to choose from.
I made up one of the New Year’s cards featuring a photo of our daughter dressed up for her senior luncheon and a handsome photo of our son.
It’s great that Vistaprint even lets you see what the finished product will be before placing your order. That way you can see if it’s laid out the way you want.
In addition to a wide variety of design templates, you can also choose from several size, style and paper stock options, and apply the style to the many matching products – including envelopes, return address labels, stickers and more. Also, this year Vistaprint is offering a premium “Designer Collection” of this year’s hottest designs created by the team’s best designers.
Vistaprint also send me a few cards to check them out in person as well as a code to order cards. The cards are exceptionally well made. The text and images are clear and colorful. The cards are not flimsy either.
It’s not too late to send holiday love and well wishes to family and friends near and far. Pick up your photo cards from Vistaprint today.
