Photo Christmas Cards


Christmas cards may be the only piece of mailed correspondence you send all year, so give your loved ones unique greetings that they will remember. At Minted, every personalized Christmas card starts as a design from our global community of independent artists. Each year we host contests where independent designers submit their creations, our customers vote on their favorites, and the winners are featured on our site. With Minted you are guaranteed to find a dazzling array of fresh designs that you won’t find anywhere else. Create Christmas cards that are not only gorgeous, but also as unique as you and your loved ones this year!


We make creating custom Christmas cards easy. To be sure, there are many many choices, from greeting to color, shape, size, foil, glitter, letterpress and more. We are proud to offer premium Christmas cards for every style and budget, such as our affordable Christmas Postcards, starting at $1.30 per card or our beautiful Religious Christmas Cards. We offer this vast range of options for those that want to be unique and create the perfect cards themselves. If the hands-on approach appeals to you, start by using our filters to quickly surface ones that fit your taste, such as vintage or funny. Once you have found your preferred assortment, use our Find It Fast tool to easily view your chosen photo in many designs at once. From there, pick one that stands out and use our intuitive customizer interface on your mobile phone or desktop computer. Choose your options, arrange photos and text how you want to see them, and we can turn them into a high-resolution proof. While customizing is fun and our design associates are always happy to accommodate unlimited special requests for you, we understand that the holiday season is a busy one. Given this, we launched a revolutionary new service called Text Us Your Photo. Simply text us the photo you want on your Christmas card, tell us what you envision and we will send back 5 FREE styled photo cards. What photo cards can be created more effortlessly than that?

This not only saves time and all that handwriting each Christmas, but lets you coordinate the outside of your envelopes and the stunning card within to create an immersive recipient experience.

Now that you have the perfect design, paper and printing, how do you decide on what to write on the inside of your cards? Here are some very merry Christmas greeting ideas to get you started:

  • Make a top 10 list of moments, things or events that your family is grateful for from the past year.
  • Use interior photos to illustrate some of your favorite moments and add captions to call out details.
  • Do a year in review. Share family highlights in a fun newsletter-style update.
  • Use rhyming to create a poem or capitalize each new line to spell out a festive word as an acrostic.
  • Create a photo collage to showcase more snapshots of your family, and don’t forget the pets!
  • Summarize each of your children’s stories for the year. Name some of their biggest milestones and accomplishments.
  • Make family Christmas cards. Help or let your kids write in their greetings, latest and most favorite things, reminiscences with the recipients and wishes. Bonus points for cute doodles!
