I love Christmas cards.
During college, I worked at a post office, and since then, I've held on to my appreciation for real, tangible mail. Although I keep in touch with a lot of people online, there is nothing like receiving a lovely envelope, containing a picture of family or friends, to hang on my wall. I love the daily reminder of the relationships we are so blessed to have each time I see their smiling faces.
I remember when my mom used to hand-make all our of Christmas cards. They were awesome! That is one tradition I haven't continued, and she doesn't do that anymore either. There are just so many lovely printing companies now, that can do all the hard work for you. To me, digitally ordering a Christmas card is just as exciting (and a whole lot easier) than making them by hand.
One of my very favorite companies is Minted.com.
I am in love with their Christmas card options.
They have so many gorgeous designs.
My favorite feature is the different shapes you can get-- rounded corners, scallops, wavy edges, etc. I love the calligraphy inspired fonts, and the chalkboard trend. They have lots of option for both of these! Other great options to consider are the papers (100% recycled or pearlescent), color customization, folded cards, and pretty lined envelopes.
Check out some examples!
Joyeux Noel- they even have chalkboard inspired designs
Holiday Map Postcard- so fun if you moved this year!
Fun Back of Card Options:
Great quality isn't always the cheapest thing to be found, but for the price, you really do get great quality products. Which is why it's awesome that Minted.com is running a discount right now.

P.S. Do you save all the Christmas cards you receive? I do, hehe. Need an idea on how to preserve and organize them? Well, you can thank my mom. This is her idea. :)
I am being provided a set of my own cards in exchange for this post. I have not been paid any money as compensation. Opinions are all my own.
