If you are like many people, you are faced with a good problem but a problem nonetheless. You have too many good photos to choose from for your Christmas cards, and you cannot cram them all onto one card. Fortunately, there are a few ways to deal with such a “problem.” Here are some of these ideas.
One way is to go beyond the standard Christmas card, which is a card that is either one-sided (like a postcard is) or double folded. For instance, you could opt for tri fold Christmas cards, which have three faces. There is more space for more photos, plus your card looks awesome. Instead of this or even in addition to this, you could use personalized postage stamps or personalized address labels. Just upload an image for each, and presto, more Christmas cheer. Yet another avenue is to make print copies of all of the images you like and enclose them for select recipients such as grandparents, aunts, uncles, best friends and people who do not get to see your family often.
When you have an abundance of Christmas card photos, another option is to send out a New Year’s card, and use that for half of the images. If you have done your Christmas card photos early enough, Thanksgiving could be on the table as well.
No matter what, think on your decision for a few days. With the passage of time, you may find that some images really stand out to you and that you can make standard or tri fold Christmas cards work. You should also ask the other people in the photos which ones they prefer and why. Look for images that project naturalness and that are engaging. Siblings hugging, touching, laughing and being affectionate are sure to captivate recipients.
