Beautiful invitations, cards, and other stationary are my absolute weakness. With all the technology based methods of contacting loved ones in our current world, a mailed card is a welcomed surprise. There is nothing I love more than receiving a colourful Christmas card and being able to put it on display.
Just recently, it’s come to my attention that many people my age (I’m currently 27) don’t send Holiday cards.
I get it – there is a high probability that you’ll spend money on the cards, spend money on the postage, and your beautiful card will sit on a shelf for about a month before it ultimately ends up in the trash. But there is also the chance that your card will bring someone a smile, remind a distant family member that you’re thinking of them, or add to a beautiful Christmas card display.
This year, I’m taking a break simply because last year we sent save-the-dates, wedding invitations, and thank-you cards. Next year I’ll be back on track! But, I want to know…Do you send Christmas cards?
The above pictured Christmas card from 2015 is my absolute favourite. I took the photo myself and made/printed the cards through Vistaprint. Vistaprint is super easy to use and they have fantastic deals on Cards.
If you’re willing to spend a little more money, I highly suggest Shutterfly or Basic Invite. Although these sites typical cost a little more than Vistaprint, they have amazing sales this time of year.
If you’re more into purchasing premade cards, Indigo carries beautiful and unique options. Amazon also has hundreds of options for Christmas cards of all types.
Even if you don’t send cards, please don’t throw the ones you receive away. Display them for Christmas! There are so many cute options for cards displays. Even if you’re not creative, Amazon has a million holders.
In the end, I really do think sending Christmas cards is a lost art. I think it’s a holiday tradition that shouldn’t be forgotten… and I would love to get some cards this year!
