As you think about customizing your 5x7 holiday cards, there are some obvious elements you might consider. These could include a family picture, words such as “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays,” and your family names. There are some other elements you may want to include as well to make your cards perfectly customized before you order them and send them out.
Chances are some of your closest family and friends are saving the cards you send them each year. You might even have a collection yourself. Instead of making future generations guess which order the cards go in, make sure to include the year as an element of your design. Grandparents, especially, will want to look back at the progression of your family and how everyone has grown from year to year. When you include that information, it becomes a lot easier.
You don’t have to stick with just your favorite family photo. There are many options we have that allow you to include various photos of your family, whether in groups or individual shots. For example, the Extra Extra holiday card leaves space for multiple pictures on the front, and you can also use a different layout for the back to include even more of your favorites. Close family and friends often love the extra photos, and it will be fun for you to show them off.
Many of our 5x7 holiday cards give you the option of including fun additional information. If you have toddlers who have said some funny things this last year, include those quotes. If someone in your family received a job promotion or a new job all together, include that information. Your family and friends want to know how you’re doing and want to know what is going on in your life, and this is the perfect time to lay it all out.
Customize your holiday cards so they are unique to your family. Don’t feel like you have to stick with the traditional layouts of your friends in years past. Your cards say a lot about you, and you should be able to have fun with them.
