2018 Holiday Card Trends
It is not too early to order your 2018 Holiday Cards! There are so many holiday cards from which to choose, so where to begin? Well this year, PartyIdeaPros finally got our act together enough to plan in advance for the holiday card season. We contacted some of our favorite merchants so we could actually touch and feel the cards ourselves. Yes, we admit it — we are ridiculously touchy feely types. Our trash cans are filled with not so cheap cards printed on flimsy paper with fuzzy photos and illegible print. On the other hand, our sample books are chock full of Minted cards and invitations. We love their clear graphics and beautiful eco-friendly papers. This year's Christmas and Hanukkah card trends include rounded corners, back designs, ornament cards, lots and lots of foil an glitter, and are chock full of images of winter greenery. And of course, classic design and colors never go out of style.
Below are the cards we actually had the opportunity to touch and handle, up close. Minted has a large selection of design styles from which to choose.
Ornament Christmas Cards
We secretly wish that all our friends, family, and colleagues would send ornament cards since hanging them on our tree would clear up some much needed space. (Yes, not only do we display all your cards, we save each and every one of them in special holiday photo albums!)
Like all of the holiday cards through Minted, these are so quick and easy to customize. You can upload the photo(s) you are wanting to use, and they will show you what all of the cards would look like with your photo on them. As you are browsing, you can mark the ones that are your favorite so later you can narrow it down by just your favorites.
Best 2018 Holiday Card Idea
Our friends over at MomMeMatch suggest starting a new family tradition. Add a photo of your entire family clad in matching holiday pajamas onto an ornament card. Then every year, hang your annual photo on your own tree! The jammies featured in our collage are called Are U Yeti from Hanna Andersson's Family Matching Winter Favorites Collection and the cards are once again, Minted's Ornament Cards.
We just found this print it yourself card on Etsy and have to admit we are obsessed. This interfaith holiday card is perfect for both holidays. Rotate to see a Christmas tree on one side or a Menorah on the other. Basically, you order an instant download for a 5×7″ card. You can then upload to print using a card printing service, print at home, or bring to your local print shop.
Wishing you and yours a healthy holiday season filled with peace and joy and laughter!
