Staying in touch with friends has gotten easier thanks to social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. However, sending out Christmas cards is a great way to let your close friends and family know you are thinking about them around the holidays. Depending on the exact card you choose, Petite Alma Christmas cards have room for one or more pictures and a few words about your family. As you design your Christmas card, you need a photo worthy of being sent to almost everyone you know.
Taking a picture for your Christmas card isn’t as easy as gathering the entire family together, which, admittedly, isn’t always that easy to begin with. First you have to think about the kind of picture you want to take. Do you want all of the kiddos to wear matching jumpers or should they be able to show their individuality? Are you going to use holiday-related props or keep it simple? Do you envision the photo being taken inside or outside? Having a plan before you try to take the picture may make your photo shoot go much smoother. Consider perusing Pinterest to get some topnotch ideas.
After you have taken a few snapshots, you should take the time to look over the photos. You may need to crop your picture to ensure the rule of thirds is followed. The rule of thirds suggests that you should imagine each picture you take is divided into thirds both horizontally and vertically, which would create nine boxes. The subject of your photo should be along one of the imaginary lines because an off-center photo has more visual appeal. Be careful not to create something that is too off center.
Once you have your Petite Alma Christmas cards all figured out, you can put some attention into other aspects of your holiday. You can order your Christmas party invitations and personalized stockings from Tiny Prints too.
"The standard weight paper was nice and heavy and the colors were vivid. The regular delivery arrived before the expected date I am reordering more today! Will definately use tiny prints for my son's engagement party invitations!"
"Beautiful card, printing quality superb. Definitely go for the better paper it is really worth it. Also, I would increase the type size (if possible) of the second line (family names) because it looks a bit small (you and your kids need to have short names for this to work)."
"I wanted a New Year's card with multiple photo spaces. This card was perfect, in that it had one horizontal spot for a group photo and squarer spots for individual pictures. The deciding factor was being able to put photos with captions on the back as well. I found cheaper cards on other sites, but they either didn't have New Year's cards, or a good layout, or good reviews. TinyPrints reviews often said that the quality was better than expected, and I agree. After placing the order, I realized I hadn't ordered enough and left a phone message. They called back as soon as they opened the next day, amended my order with no problem, and still had my rush delivery to me in 2 days--even with the free design review. I'm a customer for life! A+ product and service!"
