I have to say I’m the absolute worst when it comes to Holiday cards. I even stopped getting “Christmas themed” cards so I never have to worry about them being late. As long as they get their by the New Year. But sad to say I have a set of cards sitting in my office that I purchased over 5 years ago just waiting to be sent out. Now my excuse is, well I don’t have everyone’s address or … or well that’s really the only excuse now, especially because now you can create some AMAZING holiday cards online.
Minted.com is one of those places. They were kind enough to send me some samples and I’m so sorry I took me so long to open up the package. These cards are amazing. Luckily I just read that if you order your cards by Tuesday the 14th you can get your cards by the 20th.
I scrambled to get the kids together for a quick picture this evening to get our order in. And that is a feat in itself because I have one that loves to take pictures and one that has a fire-marshal-bill smile.
Anyhow I managed to get one decent photo and used the Find it Fast Holiday Card option. Which is great for an indecisive mom with a lack of time. It simply adds your picture into a selection of cards and all you have to do is pick your favorite and customize it. You can choose a Holiday theme: Holiday cards, Christmas cards, Hanukkah cards, or New Year cards. I just stuck with Holiday incase I don’t get them out in time. 🙂
Once your card is fully designed you have the option to customize the envelope and even add address labels.
They also just recently launched a brand new line of photo calendars which I’m now really considering.
If you haven’t already ordered your holiday cards, there is still time to get them before Christmas if you order on minted.com by Tuesday 14th. So grab the camera and the kids and capture the holiday season and spread cheer all over the globe!
