Make it personal. Your holiday card may be the one time that you get to express your family’s true colors and truly connect with those you care about.
Add humor or personality to your holiday card. Style your family in their favorite band T-shirts or in something that gives a sneak peek into who you are.
Host a Family Photo Day. Organize a Family Photo Day with friends. Together, you can hire a photographer to take all your photos which can save on costs. This is a great way to have fun with your friends and get a Cardworthy Photo for your holiday card.
New 6x8 size cards are huge this year. Our largest size card lets you showcase your family in a big way. And there’s room to add your photos on the back too.
For those who tend toward the traditional, look for classic card designs with a timeless feel.
‘Whimsy’ card designs bring fun to the holidays in a playful and animated way.
Don’t be afraid to go bold. Try cards with colorful rainbow hues and bright pops of color.
Nostalgic illustrations have been making their way to cards with texture, layering and artful type treatments.
And of course, simple is always in style. Understated basic layouts will really allow your photos to shine.
To save time, start with your photo first and then select your card design. This will help you narrow down your card choices. Another option is to let Shutterfly pre-address your envelopes or even mail your cards for you.
