So this year, I’m changing it up. I am going to create my cards this weekend and hope to get them ordered by Sunday night so that I can get them out before Christmas.
One of the big difficulties for me with Christmas cards is the family photo. Traditionally, I have not had great family photos to share. Up until about only a year ago, every family photo we had taken, whether it was a special event like a wedding or just a casual photo with our own camera, we had at least one child frowning or crying. In many cases, we had two children crying. Which is odd, because in every other candid photo we would shoot, they would drop everything and smile like they were going to win money for it.
In this past year, my kids finally grew up enough to stop crying during family photos, so it’s time to send a photo Christmas card this year.
The biggest question for me now is, where can I get a good deal? Everyone is competing for Christmas card sales now. I even learned this morning that tomorrow (Sunday) is the biggest day of the year for holiday card shopping. So I guess I may have to be patient if I wait to upload my card tomorrow.
But hopefully, that will correlate with some really good Christmas card deals. The only issue will be finding the card that I like because there are so many choices!
If I can get the cards made this weekend, I’ve decided to take advantage of a cool offer from Tiny Prints. I really like some of their beautiful designs. The reason I chose them is that they are offering 40% off my order of ANY size, AND I’ll get free shipping.
If this sounds like a good deal to you, here’s the how-to:
1. Go to Tiny Prints and select your holiday card style. There are oodles to choose from.
2. Personalize your card with your pictures, your text, etc.
3. When you checkout, use the promo code TPCARDS40FS to save 40% and get free shipping.
The fine print is that the offer is only available until Noon Pacific time tomorrow (Sunday, Dec 7th), so make sure you get your cards ordered by then.
Of course, if you don’t, there may be other offers available starting Monday. We’ll just have to wait and see.
Stay tuned, I’m working on another quick video post if you’d like an alternative to ordering traditional Christmas cards.
Until then, Enjoy!
P.S. – The links in this post are my affiliate links, so if you do decide to take advantage of this, Tiny Prints will compensate me for recommending them. I had planned to order through them before this became available, and would not steer you to something I wouldn’t use myself.
