It’s that time of year where everyone seems to be getting into the whole Christmas Card thing. To be honest, I am no different. I have used the option of ordering printed Christmas Cards this year. Vistaprint has some fantastic Christmas Cards (as well as a variety of different greeting cards). This website can also be used to print business cards, invitations, stationery, and a whole heap more. Through them, I have designed this card to send out to my loved ones 🙂
Vistaprint has been up and running for 15 years, and is one of the best for producing products in high quantities. Vistaprint is a great option if you were wanting to send Cards to your loved ones this Silly Season. One alternative available to you are to good ol’ e-greeting card. 123 Greetings still seems to be the most popular choice for e-greeting cards, if you feel you want to email a card to someone, rather than classic snail mail.
Another alternative I’m rather fond of is the CanTeen Christmas Card scheme. CanTeen supports teenagers with cancer and their families during and after treatment, and cards are designed by the teenagers with cancer, as well as the siblings of teenagers who have passed on from cancer. If you wished to support a charity this Christmas, then this would be a perfect way of showing your support :).
Of course, there was my first choice, which was making the cards yourself. Be warned, this does sound like a much better idea than it actually is. It can be a bottomless pit of money for supplies, and it does take up a lot of time. So if you plan on sending a large number of cards, or you don’t have the time to sit down and make them, then it’s best to go with one of my prior options.
I hope everyone is starting to feel the Christmas spirit, and feels like sharing it around a little bit 😉
