It’s almost that time of year again when we all rush out to buy small bits of card with images of holly and trees on them and exchange them with friends, family and the couple across the street.
Yes, it’s Christmas card time. Like the business card, Christmas cards tend to be accumulated, left on display for a few weeks before being relegated to the recycle bin. So why not try and be more original this year, hunt down some truly amazing designs or spend a few extra pennies and design your own personalised Christmas cards – here’s a few ideas to get you started…
Make them personal
Maybe you know someone who’s just passed their driving test or you’re buying your kid their first car for a Christmas present…
Make them beautiful
Not every Christmas card has to have the traditional image of a robin in the snow or Santa on his sleigh to be festive, find a design that people really want to look at…
They don’t have to be religious
Not everyone who celebrates Christmas is Christian and not everyone wants a dozen cards with the image of baby Jesus on them, know any science geeks?
Match them to personalities
We’ve all got than one friend or relative who’s a little bit cynical and a tad on the grumpy side when it comes to Christmas
Make them individual
With technology these days, access to design your own card websites and Photoshop you could always design your own card and make it personal to you
Don’t go too OTT
The personal Christmas card has always been a firm favourite but don’t forget – not everyone wants to see what you want to show them
