Christmas card season is coming! Soon, mailboxes will be brimming with something more than the usual junk mail and bills (can I get a yessssss?!).

We love any type of Christmas card – from handwritten styles signed by Grandma to simple photo cards packed with snapshots of growing families – each and every one gets displayed with joy.

The cards that really shine though, are the ones that share ALL the goings-on from the year. Family vacations to first steps to new jobs and new pets – your Christmas card is the perfect place to overshare (for real!).

We call these types of Christmas cards family newsletter cards and they are F-U-N! Our affordable designs are totally custom but are an absolute breeze to create:

1. Choose a Design You Love

We have so many fabulous newsletter cards, you might have trouble choosing a favorite.


2. Add Your Photos

The beauty of a newsletter holiday card is that it holds soooo many photos. And finding photos to share is as easy as opening your camera roll. Upload your favorite snaps from through the year and share the little moments and big memories that made your year special.


3. Add Your Own Words

When we said custom, we meant it. The signature piece of these styles is that they have lots of room for your very own snippets of text. Collage-style cards pair areas for copy alongside photos, making captioning super simple.

You can also use text areas to add an update on each family member. Don’t forget to add details like the ages of your children, their favorite activities and a fun story or memory from their year. Christmas cards that include these sorts of details will become treasured keepsakes long after the kids are all grown up!


4. Create a Color Palette YOU Love

Finally, update the colors on your card to create a look that matches the holiday style you love most. Go whimsical with pops of bright colors like cherry red and teal. Or, go with a richer, more traditional look with burgundy and cream.

See? Easy breezy! Get started on your design and give us a shout if you have any questions as you create!
