Countdown to Holiday Cards

For maximum cheer, get your holiday cards in the mail by December 1st

For maximum cheer, get your holiday cards in the mail by December 1st

We know, we know… your Halloween decorations are just going up! But it’s a good time to start thinking about your holiday cards. It’s not December yet, but it will be in five short weeks. (It sounds a lot closer when you put it that way!) Plus if you get your holiday cards done early, then it leaves more time for shopping! But don’t worry, we’ve made it very easy for you.

Make your holiday card list now.
Review your current holiday mailing list and add any new friends that you want to get a card. Go through your address book, contact lists and even your Facebook to make sure all of your special someones are on your ‘A List.’ Go ahead and thank yourself next year by updating your list and making it easy to find! We’re a fan of spreadsheets, or try adding mailing addresses to your phone’s contact list.

Find a card that stirs something in you.
Photo cards are super popular for showing off your family (and pets). If you go that route, you’re obviously going to need photos! Find your design (Expressionery has a gorgeous new collection of holiday cards this year) and see if you’ll need a horizontal or vertical photo. If you need a professional photographer, start searching when your boss isn’t looking. Also, check out our Pinterest page for some holiday photo inspiration.

Order your holiday cards by Halloween.
It sounds scary, but you’ll be so glad you got them done early.

Start addressing your cards as soon as they arrive.
You have until Thanksgiving, but don’t wait until then either! Tryptophan is a very powerful thing. Add the finishing touch to your cards with a beautiful customized address stamp.
