Why I love Christmas Cards

I have never been one to get Christmas cards out on time. In fact, I’ve even considered doing New Year’s cards so then technically I wouldn’t be late. Last year I finally got my act together and ordered a fun Christmas card and I loved it so much I knew I needed to make it a tradition.

This year I ordered cards through Tiny Prints. I love the cards that have room for a lot of photos backdrops on them. I am rarely on top of things enough to do family photos for those beautiful Christmas cards that you see, so I like to include a bunch of photos of my family that represent our last year. Pictures of our travels, fun things we did as a family and pictures of my boys living life. The Christmas card is the perfect time to sift through all those memories and briefly share those with family and friends.

Tiny Prints Christmas Cards

I LOVE them! It was so easy to do and the quality is outstanding. I’m so impressed. The front picture of us four was taken in Barcelona on a family vacation. It’s in front of the Temple Sagrada Familia. We, sadly, don’t have too many good family pictures together and I only ended up including two. But this card was perfect because it had a lot of space to include individual photos of my boys. And gosh are they handsome!

Here we’re at the beach, where my kids are probably the happiest (that and camping) so it was a nice representation of them. My older son playing basketball because that’s what he loves, and daddy and my little guy acting cray-cray like normal.

With this card you can choose the color you’d like on the inside. I chose white because I like it looking nice and clean, but there is also black, which looks chic, and red, which is very festive. You can see all the options for this card here.

The other thing to note about this card is that it is square. Normally mailing something in the shape of a square costs more. Who knew? Well, actually, I knew that since my wedding invitations were square, but I didn’t consider it when picking out my card. I had already fallen in love and there was no turning back. Thankfully, as I was checking out Tiny Prints had a notification pop up mentioning the additional postage. I was bummed until I saw that they offer rectangular envelopes made to fit the square Christmas cards for no extra charge. So I made sure to choose those at checkout and was all set!

I ordered matching return address labels as well because I have horrible handwriting and who wants to write their address on repeat a million times? I didn’t want to blast my address all over the internet, but you can see them here with a fake address to see what they really look like. It kinda makes me wish I lived on lucky street!


As you can see, the little note is included on the back of the card. It’s long enough for a nice little update, but not too long – just the way I like it! The middle photo is from my birthday camping (another time when my kids are the happiest – and not gonna lie, me too), then we’re riding camels in Morocco, hanging out in Barcelona and visiting the chateaux in the Loire Valley. Oh the memories, 2015 treated us well!

Tiny Prints has so many options on their site for Christmas cards and so much more, you’ve got to check it out. This is a sponsored post, but I hope you believe me when I say, I am so impressed and overjoyed with the quality of the card, the ease of making it, and how fast I got it after I ordered it. They even have a service that will proofread your card before it goes to print – for free! Make sure you check them out for all your holiday printing – they even have Halloween and Thanksgiving items.

So what do you think? Did you like our cards? What do you usually do for cards each year? I’d love to hear some ideas – leave them in the comments!
