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.

"I loved the way the picture took up the whole card with cheerful overprinting of text. In combination with the animated expressions on my grandsons' faces, the text gave the perfect enthusiastic greeting."

"As usual with Tinyprints, the quality of this card is exceptional. I was extremely happy with it and the turn around time was unbelievable. I ordered on a Sunday and it was on my doorstep on Tuesday. I ordered the blue version with the traditional rectangle shape and the solid blue back with three captioned pics. It looks fantastic! Almost too good to be true for the price, but that's why I love this company and order from them regularly. Also, I can't say enough about the customer service at Tinyprints. From my experience, It is one of the best companies for putting the customer first and making sure you are satisfied. I have been a customers for years and anytime I have had a problem with a finished product, the issue is resolved and a replacement immediately sent. And...they don't send my call out of the country and keep me on the phone for hours haggling over it. They are courteous, professional and efficient."

"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."
