Ideas for Christmas Photo Cards
Taking and choosing the right photo to include inside your holiday greeting cards doesn’t have to be hard. If you need help deciding on the right picture to include inside your cards, here are some ideas for Christmas photo cards:
How to Send Personalized Holiday Cards with a Photo
Our Christmas photo cards are an inexpensive way to send a card and a holiday gift together. You can easily send personalized Christmas cards with up to two photos printed inside using Minute Mail Gifts.
In addition, you can include a simple gift inside. Whether you choose a Christmas tree ornament or magnetic photo frame, our affordable gift options make your Christmas cards even more unique and special.
To create a personalized photo card for the holidays, follow these steps:
1. Pick one or two photos to include inside your Christmas card.
2. Once you’ve decided on the picture(s) you’ll use to customize your holiday greeting cards, select the greeting card design you’d like to send.
3. Choose a gift to send with your custom Christmas photo card. You can choose from magnetic photo frames, Christmas ornaments, magnets, magnetic bookmarks, stickers and more!
4. Select a card layout for both the left and right writing panels inside the card. Both sides of the card offer options for a message, photograph, or both. Therefore, you can include two photos inside each card if you like.
5. Customize your Christmas card with the photo or photos you’ve chosen. Then type in the message you’d like to appear. You can choose from a variety of handwritten fonts for that extra personal touch, as well as choose the font size and alignment.
6. Address the envelope. Fill out the return address with your information along with the address of the recipient. If sending a card out the entire family of the same last name, be sure you don’t commit a grammar faux pas. (Read more on that below.)
7. Have us mail your card out right away. Or schedule your card to mail on the date you indicate.
Of course, you can also send personalized Christmas cards with no photo if you don’t have one that you’d like to include. Simply choose a card layout that indicates text only, then proceed with creating your custom holiday greeting.
How to Address Your Personalized Photo Christmas Cards
Avoid the apostrophe faux pas when addressing holiday cards or creating personalized gifts! Apostrophes are used to show possession, show omission of letters (such as when writing contractions) and to form plurals of single letters, numbers, and symbols.
When making the plural of a last name, an apostrophe is NOT used. For example, if you are addressing multiple members of the Jones family, you would spell the plural of their last name as the Joneses. You would not use Jones’ as you are not showing possession.
The correct way to spell the plural of a last name depends on the last name. For last names that end in S, X, Z, CH, or SH, you would add -ES to the end of their name.
If the last name ends in any other letter, simply add -S to the end.
When to Order Custom Photo Holiday Cards
You can order your Christmas photo cards from Minute Mail Gifts whenever you like as we offer quick turnaround times on every purchase. Cards are shipped either the same business day or within one business day after they are printed. We send all personalized greeting cards via USPS First Class Mail. Therefore, the anticipated delivery date is 4-7 days after shipment within the continental United States.
When Should I Mail My Holiday Cards?
We recommend that you mail your Christmas photo cards and gifts around Thanksgiving for timely arrival. You can either send them out a few days prior to or several days after the holiday. The goal is to make sure they arrive before Christmas. However, you also want time for friends, family, and clients to be able to create a Christmas card display.
If you aren’t able to send your cards at Thanksgiving, we recommend allowing for 4-7 days for arrival under normal circumstances. However, during seasonal and holiday peaks, it is important to keep in mind that USPS often experiences longer delivery times. Therefore, it’s important to factor this into account when scheduling or mailing cards that need to arrive by a certain date.
If you aren’t sure if your cards will be received by Christmas, then consider mailing a New Year’s card instead.
