The act of sending greeting cards — specifically cards to celebrate the new year — can be traced back to ancient China, and the once forgotten trend is beginning to see a reemergence. There are several reasons you should consider sending family new year cards instead of the traditional holiday card.
During the holiday season, you already have plenty of things to worry about. You have to plan meals, attend holiday parties, shop for gifts and so much more. More often than not, sending holiday cards gets put at the bottom of the list, forgotten until it’s too late for them to reach the intended recipients in time. By sending cards for the new year instead, you free yourself from an end-of-year obligation that is probably more stressful than fun.
Holiday cards are supposed to get to the intended recipient by the specific holiday, and it’s considered bad etiquette if the card is late. Cards to celebrate the new year are a bit different, though. You won’t need to rush out on Christmas Eve to get them in the mail because they don’t need to arrive by New Year’s Day. Most experts agree that good etiquette is to mail them just after the first of the year, which means the cards will be received within the first couple of weeks.
Many people suffer a “holiday hangover,” often referred to as Post-Holiday Syndrome. After the festivities are over and life goes back to normal, some people get depressed. By sending a card for the new year, you may cheer someone up.
Tiny Prints offers a wide range of family new year cards. Simply choose a picture of your family, pick a style such as the colorful Happy and Peaceful card, fill in your information and your cards will be on their way to you in no time.
"I loved this card, not only because it is done in the colors of Ohio State, but also because it was simple yet said everything I wanted to convey to our family and friends. Our family pic fit beautifully."
"Perfect, we loved it and so did everyone else. I used a photo editor app on my phone to create it. I only wish you had it as an option. Great job.Looking forward to future projects from you."
"This was a beautiful Chinese New Year Card. The colors were very vibrant and the horse design was there, but very subtle. Everyone that received the card was impressed. There are not many Chinese New Year Cards available."
"I wanted a photo card that would include enough space for me to write a personal message that would go to our closest friends and family. I found that possibility after fielding a call to the staff at Tiny Prints. The folded 'Favorite Memory' Photo Card was perfect. My intended story was told beginning with a full cover photo, two photos and my 87 word message inside, ending with one photo on the back…A perfect fit! Comments coming back to me convey the joy that I felt as I went through the layout process. Many, many thanks for helping me give this 'gift' to the people I love."
"This card was the first of many for our family. Easy to personalize and the photo upload was a cinch. The paper quality and printing is excellent. I am a satisfied consumer for this product."
