This weekend (weather-permitting), we will be taking our children's portraits for our Holiday photo cards. Over the past few years, it has become a tradition for our Holiday cards to feature one photo of each child alone plus a fourth photo of the three together. Because of this, we are limited to cards that have a layout with 3 smaller rectangular or square photos and one larger landscape photo. I usually only find 2 or 3 that I like, so I was surprised to find 7 or 8 Holiday cards at Tiny Prints with both a design and a 4-photo layout that I liked. It was so easy to find what I needed using the filters on the sidebar to specify the number of photos, the format of the card, the size of the card, and much more. After showing all the cards I found to my husband, we narrowed them down to the 5 pictured above.
Finding so many Holiday card options in the layout I wanted was not the only thing that surprised me while I was shopping. I always knew that I had multiple options for color, format, and layout for most Tiny Prints cards, but this year I found that I could customize the trim for the edges and corners of the cards. I am particularly partial to the rounded and the ticket corners. The bracket and scalloped trim options are a little too ornate for me.
There are also new design styles for 2013 that will pretty much fit anyone's taste. One of my favorites is the new All That Glitters cards. These cards have the look of glitter without all the mess because the glitter is actually printed right on the cardstock. Brilliant!
My husband and I were leaning towards the 7 x 5 Chevron Shine Flat Holiday Greeting Card. We both liked the overall design and I loved the All That Glitters chevron background. We still were not sure if it was the right card for us. Then I clicked on the square format option and voila! It's perfect!!
Now that the big decision has been made, we'll need to decide on the details . . . Should we go with the Pearl White Shimmer Paper? Should we get the matching address labels too? How about envelope liners? Should we get the modified rectangular envelopes to save on the extra postage charged for mailing square envelopes? Yes, there are a lot of decisions to be made, but I am thankful to have all these options to make our Holiday cards just perfect for our family.
