Everyone wants a beautiful family photo for holiday greeting cards, and finding the ideal card to put it in can be as challenging. Here are some websites that offer stylish holiday photo cards that will frame your family portrait perfectly.
Holiday Photo Cards from Tiny Prints.com
Tiny Prints.com offers a very large selection of holiday photo cards, close to 500. The cards can be edited and viewed online before purchased. The font and colors can be changed as well. For a family with three children, a great card to select is the Joyful Wishes card, which allows for three separate photos with the words, “Peace, Joy and Love” underneath. On average, depending on the quantity ordered, the price is about $1.70 to $2 per card, not including shipping. White envelopes come free with the cards, but colored envelopes can be ordered for a small additional charge.
Holiday Photo Cards from Minted.com
Minted.com offers a variety of holiday designs – 185 in all. The customer can choose the type of paper, such as a matte recycled or pearlized (for an extra charge) and whether it is a flat card or fold out (again an extra charge applies). There is also a choice of colors and fonts. A designer at the company will put the card together based on the requirements and email a proof for approval. A favorite card is the Holiday Dot Holiday design because its simple stylish design makes it look like the cover of a magazine.
Holiday Photo Cards from Photo Affections.com
Photo Affections.com offers around 125 colorful fun cards. A cute design is their Ornaments card where the photos appear in Christmas balls. The cards here are less expensive than other sites. It doesn’t appear that colors or fonts can be changed but a greeting and family name is entered and a designer makes sure it looks right. A proof is sent for approval. If there is appropriate space, additional text can be requested such as Bible verses, quotes or other special sentiments for no additional charge.
Holiday Photo Cards from The Prince and the Paper.com
The Prince and the Paper.com does not offer as many designs as the other sites, only about a dozen, but they pride themselves on the fact that everything is customizable including the colors, fonts (a choice of 28) and layout. Linen or pearl luster card stock is an extra charge. Their design called, Your Family Year, is particularly interesting because not only can more than one photo be added, but there is space to include a short holiday letter right on the front of the card.
Holiday Photo Cards from Little Star Greetings.com
Little Star Greetings.com offers around 40 card designs, including holiday birth card announcements, which is nice for announcing a baby born just before the holidays. The cards on this site are quite pretty, a nice one being the Happiness Photo Holiday Card because it uses more non-traditional holiday colors of ice blue and taupe. A glossy or matte finish is offered and the greeting can be changed. Cards average about $2 per card.
All of these sites suggest ordering cards as early as possible to make sure they arrive in plenty of time to address and mail off.
