I finally got around to mailing my Christmas cards last week, and the response I've gotten is amazing! Never have I had so many people tell me how beautiful and unique my cards are! It's all thanks to Tiny Prints!
Tiny Prints had so many great designs to choose from for Christmas cards I had a very hard time choosing which one to pick for us. I knew I wanted to put pictures of all 3 of the kids on it, especially Jaxon since he's brand new to the family, a good way to introduce him to family and friends who aren't around here. When I found "Modern Santa" I knew that was the card for us! It had plenty of room for multiple pictures, and even an area for me to write a personal message. I decided to write a mini newsletter, in past years I've printed out a whole page or 2 of things that have happened to us in the past year, it was nice to actually have it in the card this year. The outside has a picture of all three kiddos, with their names and ages under their picture. The inside has 4 pictures you can see, I wanted to show Jaxon as a itty bitty baby and also the older kids holding him...and then the one good shot I have of them all together. The other side of the inside has our mini newsletter...just highlighting parts of our year.
The responses I've gotten are awesome! I sent one to each of my "Skype Girls" and yesterday when I signed on Andrea from Momma's Review had left a message saying "OMG JACKIE!!!!!! Your Christmas cards are gorgeous" Today Jennifer (Speedy) from Eighty MPH Mom said she got "the most adorable Christmas card!!!" and then asked me where I got them and how I did the newsletter inside. She said "I haven't seen anything else like it".
Ordering them was super simple too, everything had great instructions, uploading the pictures was quick and easy. The little snowflakes and candy cane on the inside are little touches I was able to add myself. For 20 of these beautiful cards, envelopes included (I added our return address on the envelope flap for $7 extra) and shipping, it only come out to $71.75 and even Jeff (who is a cheapskate might I add) said that was a GREAT deal and he could see doing this every year! One of the things I liked is they were easy to fold, they had a fold indent that made it simple...I didn't have to try to line it up straight when I folded them or anything...piece of cake!
Tiny Prints offer more than just Christmas cards, they do birth announcements, party invitations, wedding invitations, thank you cards, if you need a card/announcement/invitation, they have it more than likely!
