Tips for Photo Cards that Are Bound to Impress

Trying to WOW recipients with your postcards? We can help! All you need is a little planning and creativity. Follow these seven tips and your christmas postcards will surely stand out from the rest:

  • Plan Ahead - You don't want to scramble for that perfect shot in the midst of shopping for gifts. Start thinking about a photo for your holiday card two months before Christmas. Just set aside some time one weekend in November to get everyone together for the photo shoot.
  • Let Your Personality Shine - Does your little one insist on wearing her Disney Princess costume everywhere she goes? Why not let her wear it for the Christmas photo? She'll be happier, you'll be happier, and your friends and family will love that her adorable personality is on display.
  • Tell a Story - Does your family have a special hobby, talent, passion or pastime? Are you known as the family who enjoys competing at board games? Pull out the Monopoly board and take a photograph that'll make recipients smile and nod their heads in recognition.
  • Think Outside the Box - Tired of the same old posed family photo? Mix it up! You don't have to go formal. How about roasting marshmallows in front of a fire wearing matching footed Christmas pajamas? You'll have more fun taking the photo, and recipients will appreciate something new in their stack of holiday postcards.
  • Go For a Laugh - Want to let friends and family know you're thinking of them and lift their spirits during the holiday season? Try making them laugh out loud. Just get creative! A shot of your children making "sand angels" at the beach will surely make them smile.
  • Experiment - We all want our Christmas card to be eye-catching and memorable. Instead of a straightforward headshot of the children, use a photo of them lying in a field of grass. The unconventional perspective will make people stop and take a second look. Do you always use color? Try a black-and-white photo!
  • Match the Photo to the Card Design - Find a good fit in terms of style and color. A card featuring delicate winter elements will clash with a close up of your kid wearing a Santa hat. And a whimsical family shot may fall flat in a formal card design. Think of the two elements as partners!

Fun Facts

Ever wondered where postcards originated? Wonder no more! Take a look at these facts about the history of the postcard:

  • Did You Know, according to Smithsonian Institution Archives, "People sent cards through the mail with attached postage before postcards?" These cards, often referred to as mailed cards, had pictures on them.
  • Did You Know, according to Smithsonian Institution Archives, "John P. Charlton copyrighted the first postcard in America in 1861?" Wow! They've been around for quite some time!

FAQs

We've come up with answers to the most frequently asked questions about our personalized photo holiday cards:

1. What postcard size should I order?

It depends on your needs. Postcards sent by tourists are often 4"x6" or 4.25"x5.5". The 5.5"x8.5" or 6"x11" options are great if you're looking for oversized postcards. We have 14 sizes to choose from. Don't see a size that suits you? We also offer custom sizes!

2. What exactly does point mean?

A point measures thickness. We offer stocks as thick as 24 point to help you make a statement as postcards are generally printed on 16 point stock. Familiar with cover stock weights? 16 point card stock is thicker than 120 lb cover stock.

3. What is a high gloss UV coating?

A high gloss UV coating is applied to a print, then bonded and cured with UV light. This luxurious finish yields a tough, unscratchable surface that is highly durable. You can print your cheap postcards with or without a high gloss UV coating.

4. How long will it take?

To print cheap postcards, it takes 1 to 3 business days. If you need your prints NOW, just select the same-day option and place your order before NOON EST.

5. Can I see a proof?

Yes, you can. We'll send you an email to let you know when your free online proof is ready for your review. We won't send it to print until you've approved it to ensure a flawless outcome. Hard Copy proofs are available for a small fee.

Great colors and paper quality
The price was great for a high quality digital print and the colors were spot on. Turn over was speedy, even with the holiday rush. The staff was very kind and accommodating in response to a miscommunication about pick up time. I will definitely order from here again :)
