3 Tips for Creating the Perfect Holiday Card


I hate to admit it but I used to be one of those people who would procrastinate when it came to preparing for the Holidays! I would wait until the last possible minute to create holiday cards or invitations for holiday parties. Now that I have a toddler, I’ve realized the importance of being prepared ahead of time which really helps reduce stress. Call me crazy but this year I’ve already started the process of getting our holiday cards created! It doesn’t have to be stressful and it can really be fun project to do. So below I’m sharing 3 tips for creating the perfect holiday card!

Use a quality photo

There is nothing worse than receiving a holiday card where the photo is blurry or way too small. I recommend investing in a photographer to capture your family so you can share a high resolution photo and cherish it forever. Another great option would be to plan a get together with your friends to capture each other’s families!

Pick the right website to design your cards

Basic Invite is a great website you can use to create holiday cards this season! I love Basic Invite because you have almost unlimited color options to chose from when designing and you get an instant preview of your card as you go. They have over 500 holiday card designs to choose from, 40 different colors of envelopes, and the option to add foil to your card to make it stand out! My favorite part about using Basic Invite is that you are able to order samples of your custom holiday card. This way you are able to see exactly how your card will print and how the paper quality will feel before placing your full order!

Give yourself Enough Time

There is nothing worse than giving yourself a completely unrealistic timeline for getting your holiday cards out. It takes a lot of time and energy to choose the right photo, design your card, and address the envelops so start early! Wouldn’t you rather have your cards ready to go with time to spare than scrambling last minute? I know I would!
