The holidays are bound to look quite different this year as now more than ever, we find ourselves looking for meaningful ways to connect with our loved ones. More and more shoppers are swapping festive Christmas markets for online shopping, and some of us admittedly, will be sending our first ever greeting cards. Whether you’re mailing a card, or saving yourself a trip to the store by opting to make something creative digitally, we can help you bring in the holiday cheer a little earlier! Listed below are some ways you can make unique holiday greeting cards that will leave a lasting impression on your loved ones.
Send Cards that Tell a Story
At a year that’s marked by distance, ease the gap by sending a photo collage to your loved ones. Create a card of your favorite things about your hometown for that friend who was supposed to fly in, or pick a cherished memory from the past year. Design your collage with a narrative and you will have a heartfelt card that your special someone will want to look back on for years to come!
Let Your Pet/s Take Centerstage
If your family includes a fur baby, make them the star of the show! —Because who isn’t cheered up by getting a cute puppy photo in the mail? Adding your photo to the card is one way to make a statement, but attaching a photo of your pet makes it a winner! This surprise will brighten up the mood and give your friends a good laugh.
Use Text to Make a Statement
They say ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’. We say… words speak volumes too! Warm the hearts of everyone on your holiday list this year with a simple and memorable card cover. Whether you’re going for a pandemic-inspired message, or a funny note that shows off your humorous side, a text-based greeting card will surely make your card stand out!
