2023 Christmas Card Collection

SUBMISSIONS CLOSE SEPT 18TH

the history of our cards:

2021cardfront.jpg

I grew up living states and countries away from my cousins, grandparents, family members, and even close friends. At the time, social media wasn't a big deal either, so it was our Christmas cards that became our way of updating everyone on the big and little things that we had gone through or done as a family that year.

My dad would type out a letter on an 8.5x11 sheet of paper, making sure to include photos spaced throughout. He had everyones addresses in an excel sheet that he programmed to print onto sticker labels and my siblings and I would set up an entire assembly line to get the letters folded, put into envelopes, addressed, and stamped. It was an annual family affair to create and send off Christmas cards and it's something I treasure to this day.

As a result, 4 years ago I offered my design services to you all to create beautiful double sided Christmas cards that allotted you the space to write your own letter or  yearly recap. It was a massive hit and I've been offering that same service annually since. I believe that while photos are beautiful (helloooo I'm a photographer by trade), words can truly bring light to someone's day. Having an intentional letter on a Christmas card adds depth to the Christmas well wishes that we address and send off to family and friends. It's the perfect personal touch that's missing these days in our fast paced media culture.

what you get:

A faith based double sided 5x7 digital PDF Christmas card with your personalized letter/yearly recap on it for $35.00

how it works:

1. Scroll through the 8 design options below (4 vertical, 4 horizontal) and decide which you like best and which fits your photos best.

2. At the bottom of the page you'll see a form to fill out. Make sure to upload the specific # of photos in your card choice design.

3. You'll receive a draft PDF within 5 business days of form submission. Once you "OK" the card draft (you can request 2 edits of the draft), you'll receive the finalized digital PDF for both the front and back of the card which you can then have printed.

PRINTING: Can be printed anywhere that prints cards/documents. We use Staples to print our cards every year. The photo quality, color, and card quality is to our standard. Their prices are beyond reasonable and they give you the option to have your return address printed on the envelopes (making the steps it takes to send off Christmas cards, shorter).
