Cards For Family
Family adore receiving personalized Christmas cards with photos of their loved ones. It might be time to book a photo shoot, so you have a collection of stunning images for your cards in time for Christmas. Happy photos that are natural and authentic look wonderful on cards that can be framed in the New Year to be enjoyed all year round.
The text can be personalized so every family member’s name can be printed on the card in a fab font and maybe something fancy like flat foil or metallic.
Cards For Work Colleagues
Maintaining strong and healthy work relationships has never been more important. Covid has meant many people have spent little time with their workmates in real life for well over a year. Staying connected by sending a message of support and well-wishes for Christmas and the New Year is sure to be appreciated. Don’t forget to send one to your boss!
Sending cards to business contacts is a positive networking opportunity that shouldn’t be missed. For close or important contacts, featuring a photo of your family is a lovely idea and will make a good talking point next time you meet up. Or you could go for a stylish, minimalistic-looking card where the focus is on the font, paper and message.
How about sending this modern take on a classic concept? The Joy, Love, Peace card is simple yet elegant. The Peace, Love, Hope card is another beauty on natural recycled paper. Your Christmas card messages will look dazzling. If you click the “inside” button under the image, you can preview the inner design and words.
Cards For Online Contacts and Others
Finally, we are sharing the love with people with who we have relationships online. It might be someone you follow and admire, work with but never met or are hoping to build a stronger connection within the New Year. When your connection is online and the mailman delivers a Christmas card to the door, it is surely a nice surprise that will have a memorable impact.
Don’t forget your neighbors, kids, teachers and anyone else who might need a splash of the Christmas spirit – who doesn’t?
