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.

"Easy to create our Christmas card using this card layout. Perhaps just my unfamiliarity with the product but would have liked to have been able to put a text box on the front of the card in front of the pic. We got the glossy print this year (versus matte last year) and much prefer the glossy look. Overall, great product."
"Great card, with terrific quality and good adaptability on the inside. Terrific service, too--prompt, accurate, and friendly."
"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."
