Tip(ful) Tuesday: Holiday Cards

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

I look forward to giving and receiving greeting cards during the holiday season, but in these budget-tightening times I have to be smart about how much I spend to spread holiday cheer this year. Here are some ways to send holiday cards when you are on a budget:

  • Send an electronic card. Before you start squawking about how that would be tacky and cheap, think about the paper waste you will be preventing. Got Free Cards has some very cute e-cards!
  • Make your own. You don't have to be a graphic designer thanks to web sites like The Paper Mill Store and Southworth. Just download their templates, customize and print at home or at your local print shop.
  • If your heart is set on a professional job, then check out Vistaprint. They are are having a 50% off sale on many of their designs and you can get 10 FREE cards with some orders.
Happy Thanksgiving!

These are great suggestions. I haven't yet decided it I'll do holiday cards this year. I'm trying to eliminate some of the holiday angst and time constraints. I love the idea of an e-card. Thanks so much.

OR, they could hop on over and buy some at that wonderful website where our star, Little Miss Marlie, is featured as a darling model for their greeting cards! :o)

Now then, after that plug, they should give you plenty for free! :0) LOL!

Hope you and your wonderful family are having a wonderful week and enjoy a fabulous Thanksgiving.
