Rather than going through all the bother buying Christmas cards, envelopes, and regular stamps to send them out, why not just buy Christmas postcards? I really believe that Christmas postcards have the potential to become a big trend: they’re less expensive than traditional greeting cards, the stamps are cheaper, and using post cards reduces the clutter and confusion of envelopes and traditional folded greeting cards. They can be just as personal as traditional greeting cards since you can still write a handwritten message on the back of the postcard. They’ll be a delightful surprise in the mail for friends and relatives.
And if you’re one of those people who doesn’t like writing long messages, you’re still in luck! Everyone who has written and sent a postcard while traveling knows that you have to write really small and take up all the white space around the address if you really want to tell a story. So just write big, leave a stylish amount of white space, and use up lots of space with the address! That way, you can effortlessly send a personal and thoughtful Christmas greeting using a postcard.
On Zazzle.com you can even get Christmas-themed postcards personalized with your own photo! So without further ado, I present to you my favorite “create-your-own” photo Christmas postcards!
I love that this design uses the traditional Christmas themes of snowflakes and a red & green color scheme, but adds a touch of modern style with the “torn edges” revealing a cute personal photo.
This card is just so cute, stylish and sophisticated I couldn’t leave it out! Who doesn’t like peace & joy?
