Holiday Card Favorites


photo (4)In an era of online invitations and digital media, the world of paper seems to be slowly losing out. In my opinion, this is such a shame. I love letterpress cards, beautiful calligraphy, and fun invitations and announcements. Each year as Christmas approaches, my mailbox {not to be confused with inbox} is flooded with beautiful pictures of families that I love, wishing us a Merry Christmas or Happy New Year, some even share the happenings in their family from the previous year. I have a special wire hanger that I clip all these cards to, and I have been known to keep them all up until the following year’s cards arrive.

There are a variety of options to chose from when picking out your holiday card, so I thought I would round up some of our favorites, including some local mamas!

Christmas Cards

1. Paperless Post: don’t let the name fool you – what started as an online invitation service much like evite {but far more sophisticated, in my personal opinion}, Paperless Post has now expanded to print cards as well. If you are trying to save money (or paper), the ecard is still available. Either way, this site has plenty of options and designs to chose from.

2. Sweet Peach Paper: a Dallas mama and dear friend, Jenni inserts her southern style into everything she creates. From weddings to baby showers to of course Christmas cards {the picture displayed is the beautiful birth announcement she made for our new baby girl}, SPP is a great option for a classic card.

3. The Eclectic Press by Viv Jordan: another Dallas mama and kindred spirit to me, Viv the name says it all. Viv shares her eclectic design and spirit in everything that she prints, and her creative juices flow across everything from invitations, announcements, and holiday cards, so incredible chalkboard designs for any occasion. We have used Viv several times for invitations.

4. Hey Y’all Paper and Designs: we love supporting local {can’t you tell?!}, and I am excited to feature this new Fort Worth mama on our list. Her cards are sure to stand out among all the mass-produced options out there, and you can simply have her create the digital file and print where you please!We are thrilled to share a special deal for Fort Worth Moms Blog Readers! Use the discount code fwmomblog on her site now through December 8th for 20% off your order!

5. Tiny Prints: under the same family as Shutterfly, Tiny Prints has a variety of invitations and announcements to chose from. Hurry and order! Take advantage of the discount ending 12/5! Use code SW1205.

6.  Shutterfly: this site is an all-in-one for those looking for photo storage, cards, photo books, gifts, decor and more. They are running a variety of specials, including free shipping on orders over $49. Use code SHIP49.

7. Minted: this is one of my favorite sites and one we have used several years running for our Christmas cards. I always have a hard time pairing our photo with just the right card design {why does it often seem as though there is only one good photo for your Christmas cards}, so I love being able to preview everything as I design {a function many of these sites have before purchasing). And I love how they source everything from independent designers. Take advantage of their deal–15% off holiday card orders + Free Shipping (thru Monday, 12/9). Use code SLED15FS.

8. Erin Condren: Erin is known for her incredible life planners {I just got my second one in the mail and I am obsessed), but she also has some really fun Christmas cards. Especially if you are looking for something with lots of color, Erin Condren is a great option.

So tell us, where do you get your holiday cards from?
