Holiday Cards: Which Photo Card Company Do You Use?

Holiday Cards: Which Photo Card Company Do You Use?

Ok, so I admit it. I have not even picked out a photo to use on my holiday card, let alone a card design, or even a vendor itself. I will definitely use an online photo service, but I have become overwhelmed by my choices this year.

Holiday Photo Card: Vendor Options – Which Company Do You Use?

Last year I used either Snapfish or Shutterfly. I can’t remember which, let alone why I used the one I chose…

DIY Christmas Card DisplayThis year Kodak seems to have a good selection, but every one I like seems to be from a designer collection that goes for $2/card or more, and that’s definitely more than I want to spend. Tiny*Prints has some really cute ones, but they’re also a little pricier than I’d like, and My Publisher is good if you’re ordering large quantities, which I am not. They also have some other neat photo products that could make great gifts.

So after all my bargain hunting, I stumbled upon Ringo Baby holiday cards thanks to a write up on Cool Mom Picks. They’re the most expensive of the bunch (seem to start at $2.25/card if you order fewer than 100). But, for an extra $20 you can also order a holiday recipe card that is a typical greeting card on the front and your choice of four holiday recipes on the back. How cute is that? For a little less dough, they also have holiday photo bookmarks in the same designs as their cards, but I missed the deadline for ordering those in time for the holidays.

If I were a little more enterprising, had a little more free time, and a more reliable computer and printer at home I might make my own holiday recipe greeting cards, but as it stands, I might have let my husband to be the arbiter between frugality and folly.

    I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

    They have really cute invitations announcements cards for the holidays, but I found four websites that have lots of unique holiday invitations cards and custom party holiday invitations at:

    I have ordered from all four for different holiday occasions and been very pleased. Take and look and see what you think.
