Just follow a few of these simple tips and you’ll be on your way to creating the most unforgettable Christmas card that everyone on your mailing list has ever laid eyes on!
Have a Plan: Nothing great ever came about from doing things by the seat of your pants. Well, maybe lots of great things have, but a Christmas card is definitely not one of them. Before you begin creating your card, make sure you have a firm idea of what it should look like. From the family photo to the card’s design, starting with a well thought out plan will make the rest of the process a lot easier.
Find a Design: An unforgettable Christmas card of course begins with a great design. It should be consistent with the overall theme or tone of your card. For example, if your greeting is meant to be funny, you might want to use a design that’s filled with hilarious holiday characters. Or if you want your card to exude elegance, choose a design that features fashionable font styling and gorgeous art deco embellishments.
Take a Memorable Photo (Optional): Even though a photo isn’t always required, family members definitely love to see those beaming smiles front and center on your Christmas card. So if you happen to have the time (and the energy), grab your spouse and rustle up the little ones for a festive photo shoot. And be sure to implement a few of our photo tips for best results.
Provide a Short Recap of the Year: Instead of sending Christmas cards that only bear short holiday sayings, spend a little more time personalizing your message. Give everyone a brief update on any exciting family news or events that have occurred over the past year. Your recipients will surely love reading a personalized summary on how everyone is doing.
