Make Making Your Holiday Card Fun Again
Whenever the holidays roll around, you can usually count on attending at least a handful of get-togethers with family and friends. However, if you are like most others, there are more people that care about you and your family to whom holiday greetings and wishes need to be personally expressed that you can reasonably talk to at a few parties. Thus the need for your annual holiday card. Too many fall into the routine of sending the same boring card year after year that fails to express both their own personalities as well as the high regard they have for those their cards are sent to. If you find yourself stuck in this same rut, not to worry; the following tips can help you break out of your holiday card haze.
Suggestions to Spice Up Your Card-Making Process
- First, put an end to your practice of pairing simple stationary with the only photo that someone happened to take with your whole family together from the previous year. Instead, take the time to prepare an actual photo card. Full bleed photo holiday cards allow you to create a professional-looking card showing your family set against a beautiful holiday background.
- Put some thought into your family photo. Simply sending a candid snapshot taken of your family will make those who receive your cards feel that they, like the photo itself, are merely an afterthought in your life. Get everyone together in a formal pose that will help show you and your family at your absolute best.
- Have fun with your card. Choose an off-the-wall theme for your family photo, or include a funny message for your card’s recipients to enjoy. Try something new every year that will help you and your family look forward to making your annual holiday card and keep your recipients guessing as to what you’ll come up with next.
Think to Thank
Remember, too, that the holidays present you with a chance to do more than just express your will wishes. They are also a time for you to thank those who have had an influence on you and/or your family during the year. A personal Thank You card, whether it be for a holiday gift or simply for someone being there when you needed them, is a great way for you to convey such gratitude.
