christmas cards / yikes!

Its already time to start thinking about christmas cards, YIKES. Do you send out cards? We like to send them out, esp to family but haven't the past couple of years because I've waited too long to get on the ball. Well with moving this year we are thinking of sending them out with our new address. I've always used tiny prints, they have beautiful designs but it gets expensive. This year I was thinking about getting creative and using printstagram, they make cards now! How cute right?
How about some advice. Do you do cards and is there fabulous source I'm totally missing out on? Or do you cringe at the idea?

  1. I love beautiful Christmas cards. I did them when I was single and we did them as a couple for the first 3 years of marriage, but as the list grew along with my desire for cuter cards and increased postage, they got to be close to $300 a year! We now just do them to grandparents and send out the photo-packed Esch family Christmas newsletter via email.

  2. I used shutterfly the first year we were married and it was way too expensive! We could only afford to send it out to our closest relatives who we were already going to see, which I thought sort of defeated the purpose.

    Last year I used vistaprint.com. I designed the card myself and ordered post cards. I got 100 of them for about $10 including shipping!! They were running a special promotion. And because they were postcards they were cheaper to mail. Last year I ordered the smaller post card and since they turned out great and are so inexpensive I'm planning to get the larger one this year.

  4. Loving this idea. Def going to check these out. Last year was the first year we did cards, and that was so people would have our new address.

  6. Since I'm a designer I always do ours and a few family and friends for the holidays. I really enjoy doing them, but have realized that I have to start sketching out some designs soon. I would love to design something for you guys if you'd like:)

  7. I normally only send out a few because all my friends & family are near me but since I just moved states i'll definitely be sending them. I think those cute photo cards are the way to go!
