Fast and Easy Holiday Cards

Lara Shriftman of PartyConfidential.com: I enjoy making personalized holiday cards on custom stationery. They are much more sweet and intimate than the regular ones. Here are a few suggestions:

holiday cards
  • Plan to send the cards out the first week of December, to ensure that they're delivered before all of the holidays. If you can't mail them until later, choose "Seasons Greetings" or "Happy New Year" cards.
  • Classic greeting cards are always chic. Crane & Co. is my "classic" go-to. Other great classic lines are Smythson, Mrs. John L Strong, Tiffany and Cartier. For a "funny card" option, I recommend Smart Alex. These original and eccentric cards always put a smile on my face! And Meri Meri and Robin Maguire are my "cute card" go-tos. Some of their cards even include a pop-up 3D cutout!
  • When it comes to boxed sets, I recommend the Paper Source -- it has simple and clean cards at a great price.
  • If you're ordering all of your gifts online, note that most companies have cards attached to their gifts. Harry & David allows you to create a custom card with whatever you give.
  • If you have time, make your own cards. Last year, I designed my own card with a photo taken by an amazing photographer, Myriam Santos, and ordered Crane & Co. cards from the Alpine Creative Group.
  • You could also have a graphic designer design your card.Hiring a professional calligrapher for envelope addressing is also always a nice touch.
  • You can also make your own cards at home, from scratch: Have your picture printed on card stock or photo paper at Costco or Rite Aid. Photocopy your printed message and paste it to the back of your photograph. The Paper Source isagreat place to find all styles and types of envelopes. Fora cute detail, order personalized stamps from zazzle.com. You can use these on any envelope.
  • Put your cards to work: Use them to increase awareness about a charity that is important to you, and to help your charity raise money. Make a small donation in the name of each person you send a card to; on their card, say that a donation has been made in their name, and give a short description of the chosen charity. Three I like: the Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation, the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Love Heals.
  • Always send out hard copies of your card. In addition, you can also e-mail digital copies, but if you do so, make sure you send them "BCC."
  • Keep the holidays cards you received this year that you liked, and use them for inspiration next year. And don't forget to keep a list of who sent you cards and who you sent cards to, for next year's list!

I think your post was secretly a good start to a potential series of posts about this topic. A lot of people pretend to know what they’re talking about when it comes to this topic and generally, very few people actually get it. You seem to know about it however, so I think you should run with it. Thanks!

HCG specialists will tell you that the diet - a terrifying 500 calorie each day diet - is not just to limit your calorie intake. It has an additional additional necessary function and which is to activate the alleged powers of HCG hormone to increase the fat burning ability of one’s physique. In brief, without it the HCG hormone that you are needed to ingest each day for a number of weeks and for which you’re necessary to shell out substantial quantity of money is going to be useless.

Hi folks, - found out about your current web page inadvertently whilst wandering across the web this afternoon, and happy that I did! I like the style and design and different shades, but I need to mention that I’m having problems when it loads. I’m making use of Lynx 2.8 web browser for mac, and the menu does not lineup correctly. i’m pretty sure I’ve used exactly the same layout on a company’s online site, but the menu seems all straight on mine. I suspect the mistake is at my end and maybe it is time to switch!
