Tips for Creating the Perfect Holiday Card

The holidays are right around the corner and I could not be more excited to start planning our annual Christmas cards. Of course, I’m going to utilize my favorite site Minted.com. They have so many new cards this year. I tend to send out two different options because they have so many to choose from. Below I’m sharing my favorite tips for selecting the perfect holiday card.


Photo
Prior to know to select the perfect card. I narrow down my sections with the photo. I typically send two different cards out per year. One that’s more romantic, and another one that’s fun. I create a file on your phone and/or computer for potential photos throughout the year. This makes the search for the perfect photo so much easier.



Match your card to the design
When selecting the perfect card. I always narrow my search around the photo. I wouldn’t select an orange card them if everyone in the photo is wearing neon pink. I would go with a black theme or a theme that really brings out the photo.

When to send
It’s so important to know when to order and send your cards. The sooner is always better. Don’t wait until the last minute to order your cards. You can always order more if needed or even opt to send out a second round of cards in a different design. I typically send my cards out the week after Thanksgiving. Minted.com even has the option where you can buy now and personalize later.


No photo
Let’s face it, sometimes it’s so hard to find the perfect photo, or maybe you just want to send a nonphoto card this year. Minted.com has a beautiful selection of nonphoto cards. I love using the nonphoto cards to include the kiddos school photo in for friends and family.

Do you have any Christmas card tips?

  3. Yes! I have to get started early this year. The past 3 years in a row I didn't send them out and then gave up! Time to get working and get them addressed and stamped early. I love the look of these cards too!

  6. These are just lovely. Photo cards are not all that usual here in the UK. I think that they might be in the years to come.

  14. These are beautiful.

    My only tip is to not be discouraged if you send them late. I have sooooo many cards I didn’t send because I was late getting them out!
