I don’t think we’ve sent out holiday cards since the year we got married (over 5 Decembers ago). The thought of just the two of us on the front of a traditional Christmas greeting didn’t feel very exciting–I mean we don’t even have a cute dog to show off. This year however announcing our new addition was a must.
My go-to for creating personalized cards has always been Minted as they have a stylish, high-quality selection of options to choose from and their site makes the process super easy to customize the cards to your liking. You can even order custom stamps (which I did) and have all of your cards addressed as well using their free Address Assistant. I didn’t think I would actually get my act in gear to get holiday cards out before Christmas (since Rex was born at the end of November) so I searched for New Years cards instead. Turns out I surprised myself and am finishing up sending off our cards today (woohoo). But just so you know there is still time to get those holiday cards out before the 25th! Or you can play it safe like me and order from their great selection of 2017 options (love this one, and this one)–which definitely makes card sending less stressful as you can pop these in the mail anytime. Plus it’s a fun way to share any new and exciting news: a baby, new house, upcoming move etc.
