UNIQUE HOLIDAY PHOTO CARDS
The holidays are a magical time of year. Show your friends and family that you’ve been thinking of them with a unique and beautifully designed holiday card. Many people couldn’t gather with friends and family this past year. That’s all the more reason to catch them up on the large and small milestones in your life. If you’re not a fan of wordy letters detailing everything you’ve been up to, remember that a picture is worth a thousand words. We have plenty of stylish photo cards with chic designs to choose from. Want to make a holiday card that’s truly original? A completely custom holiday card might be the best choice for you. Whatever holiday card you choose, we’re confident that your Minted will make your loved ones smile.
OUR UNIQUE DESIGNS
Each Minted holiday card is printed on premium paper that has a great hand feel. The designs are created by our community of independent artists and designers from around the world and pass through our unique curation process. Throughout the year, we let our audience vote on the designs we create for you. This means that the most stylish and original holiday card designs are constantly refreshed, so you’ll always see something new. Everyone has their own style and we offer one of the largest selections of designs online. Browse through our newly-submitted holiday designs for 2021! Minted has you covered for Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years, business holiday cards, and anything else you might be searching for.
PICK YOUR FORMAT
You’ll want to decide what format your holiday card will be. Perhaps a smart and chic postcard with one photo on the front is just what you had in mind. Can’t choose just one? Try a collage. You can also go with a more traditional folded card, which leaves lots of room to write a thoughtful note. Want something truly original and striking? Check out our grand 6” x 8” or letterpress cards. You can also make a completely custom design. Whatever format you choose, there are so many elegant designs to chose from.
Holiday photo cards are a classic choice for sharing holiday greetings. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get creative with this option. Maybe you already have a picture in mind from a special event that occurred in the past year. Or maybe you’re planning a photoshoot for your card. Check out our suggestions for how to take the perfect family photo. You don’t need to hire a photographer to create a holiday card-worthy moment. When planning your card, there are just a few simple decisions to make. First, you’ll need to decide if you want your photo to be posed or candid. Next, you’ll need to consider the setting. A holiday card is a great opportunity to showcase your home! Front porch shots are a classic choice. If you’re an outdoorsy family, consider taking your photo in your favorite outdoor spot. If you go this route, the “golden hour,” at sunset, makes for luminous holiday photos. Everyone looks better bathed in golden light! Next, consider your attire. If you want a more formal, luxe look, coordinate your outfits. There are so many adorable Christmas outfits to choose from. If you have kids, you can take a picture just of them. Or you can go big and include the whole family—even grandparents! And don’t forget to include your pets! Next, select a design that matches the tone of your photograph. You’ll know it when you see it!
MAKE A CUSTOM CARD
Not finding that perfect card? Or maybe photo cards aren’t for you. Never fear, you can design your own! Since we can foil-press almost anything you can draw by hand, you can send loved ones a truly unique holiday card this year! Let a child’s drawing, a handprint, or a handwritten poem be the inspiration for your holiday card this year with our completely custom cards.
WHAT TO SAY
Whether you have a lot to say or prefer to keep it brief, the most important thing is that your holiday greeting sounds like you. A short, heartfelt holiday greeting with a warm sign-off can be just as meaningful as a long letter. In longer cards, you may want to get more personal and tell loved ones about milestones large and small. Here are some ideas for things to include:
- Kids’ ages and grades in school
- Kids’ athletic or school accomplishments
- Places you traveled or plan to travel to
- New jobs
- A move or renovation
- New hobbies
- A favorite memory
WHEN TO SEND
Holiday cards are traditionally sent any time between Thanksgiving and New Years. But why wait? Get started early when your card is likely to make the biggest impression! By Christmas day, your friends’ and family’s mailboxes will be overflowing with cards. And as you get closer to the winter holidays, your life will only get busier with holiday parties, travel plans, shopping, and house guests. But don’t worry if you’ve fallen behind schedule. You can have your cards quickly and the U.S. Postal Service typically takes between 2-8 days for standard domestic delivery. Better late than never!
