What comes to mind when you think of pink? Perhaps welcoming baby girls or maybe a tween’s decorating preferences. You might even think of the high-energy British musician. The color pink, however, in addition to being pretty to look at, has an interesting and complex effect on human psychology. Pink is a sign of hope, and it inspires feelings of comfort and the sense that somehow, everything will be OK. In this sense, pink holiday cards are a great choice. They convey a positive message and let you stand out from the usual colors. However, pink also has its darker side.
In general, pink represents beauty. It stands for charm, sensitivity, tenderness, sweetness, childhood, romance and femininity. It can symbolize good health and success. It also stands for unconditional love. A combination of red and white, the color pink combine the power and passion of red with the purity and completeness of white. In fact, violent and hostile inmates have been calmed when they were put in a pink room.
However, pink hues also represent inexperience and naiveté, and the use of pink without any other balancing colors, can encourage you to disregard adult responsibilities and grow silly, girlish and immature. Pink can mean a lack of will power and self-reliance and a low sense of self-worth.
You may not want to remake your entire decorating scheme in shades of pink, but touches of this peaceful color can create a calm and reassuring environment. For example, a pink throw pillow can add warmth and comfort to any room. Pink personalized gifts can bring peace and joy to your loved ones every day.
Pink hues are restful, pleasant and easy to look at. When pink is balanced with other stronger tones such as dark blue, dark green, black and grey, it gains strength and sophistication without losing its reassuring calmness. Try adding a few pink touches to your home, and send your loved ones pink holiday cards to reinforce a message and feeling of well-being and unconditional love.
"Soft and beautiful. Great Quality Print and Paper. Speedy Arrival. I opted for shimmer paper a little reluctantly and never looked back- it is gorgeous. Embodies the holiday spirit!"
"So pleased with the end result of my 2012 holiday card - the preview option made me know exactly what I was going to get and I was that much more satisfied when the nice quality of their product arrived on time - I am sure to have the best card yet, especially with my beautiful Seymour as the subject!"
"Perfect for a pet lover - Great title; paper, picture quality and size are outstanding - Have referred friends to your site. Thinking about ordering more items such as: mugs, more cards, etc."
"I used this card to inform family members about a boy I sponsor in Honduras to ask for donations in his name this holiday season. Thus, the "Feliz Navidad" was very appropriate...I simply added his name beneath this (instead of a family name like the example provided), and a quote in print beneath his name."
