Getting and giving holiday cards is one of my favourite holiday traditions. And yes – paper form and by mail please (I have an explanation about this below). Time to order your cards and this Minted Holiday Cards Giveaway will make holiday card giving a whole lot easier…
So why send paper holiday cards?
I know – we should all be more eco-friendly and save paper. And I did send digital cards a few years ago. My response? 1) Oh you forgot to order cards huh?! 2) Cheapskate 3) Just found your e-card – it was in my spam folder.
All responses I received by email.
And I admit. I love getting cards in the mail. The experience of opening a holiday card. Seeing a picture – reading some family news. And yes, I put each holiday card up for holiday display and decoration. (I then re-use the paper in kid crafts – so really – I’m still as eco-friendly as the digital card try).
Let me share a few stand-out points which I like about minted.com. I am a big fan of photos on cards (because I think some of those amazing photos in my camera are paper-worthy). And a photo becomes a souvenir. It’s a keeper. I still have our holiday card from last year on display – simply because I love the picture and the message.
I love the Smart & Chic option on minted. Last year, I saved money by having a postcard printed (I mail a whole lot of holiday cards to Europe so saving on postage is budget friendly). For a backer option, you can add another picture or a paragraph on your family milestones. I went with the latter -turning my holiday postcard into a family newsletter. It was chic and simple.
And take a tip from my French family – in lieu of sending Christmas cards – it’s a French tradition to send New Year cards (wishing your friends and family the best for the upcoming year). This not only is a non-religious choice – it gives you weeks more to send you holiday cards (and having a little more time is a stress-free option!).
