Holiday Cards – Photo Tips

Getting that perfect picture for your holiday photo card can be tricky. Here are some tips to make sure you get it just right:

    • Start with the photo. There are many stylish options for holiday photo cards. But that perfect picture will really bring it all together.
      • Consider going Black & White with your photo. Black and white photos have a timeless feel. They also match quite well with many colorful holiday photo cards.
        • Choose a vacation photo – Many people opt for the summer / vacation photo to send out during the holidays. These photos tend to be more natural & capture the true demeanor of your family. Plus, there are many options to choose from when it comes to tropical or beach photo cards.
          • Horizontal or Vertical – The majority of photo cards come in a horizontal layout. So, it’s important to consider this when taking your family photos. But, if your best photo is vertical, don’t worry – we’ve sought out a great selection of hard to find vertical photo cards.
            • Go Digital – Many photo cards arrive with your picture digitally printed directly on the card. The digital option can save you assembly time & give you a more custom & updated look.

              Celebrating all that is the 4th

              Every winter & spring, I long for the days of fireworks, ice cream, sprinklers, lightening bugs and strawberries. The 4th of July has long been my personal favorite holiday. I love everything about summer. Growing up in Virginia, I am strangely comfortable in 98 degree heat with 80% humidity. My mom always went all out for almost every holiday. 4th of July was no different. I remember watermelons carved out into baskets and filled again with fruit, blueberries and strawberries arranged into a flag on top of a whipped cream cake, playing ghost in the graveyard with the kids in our neighborhood, flags in the flowerpots, the smell of old bay and neighborhood parades. This 4th of July, I hope to help make memories for my daughter to celebrate.
