Every year I love sharing our family Christmas cards with you guys! Since I obviously can’t send one out to each of you, I feel like sharing it here, virtually, is a least the next best thing? No? Not really? Oh well, you know what I mean! This is my FAVORITE time of year for so many reasons… but one of my favorite things about this time of year is that I really, really, really do love Christmas cards – both sending AND receiving. I love seeing some of my old friends from college and how they are doing, families growing, job updates, and just glimpses into their lives.
We got our family Christmas cards from Minted this year and I love them. Minted has been a favorite company of mine for years – we’ve gotten our cards from Minted many times before and I always love how they turn out! The quality is great, the colors are vibrant, and they have so many design options.
Here is our 2017 Christmas Card:
Notice that our children are holding lollipops in the pictures. Yeah, we had to bribe them. It was our only hope. I have no shame and I am cool with it… gotta do what ya gotta do. I’m like, “JUST DO THIS FOR ME, CHILDREN. CONSIDER THIS MY CHRISTMAS GIFT. NOW SMILE.”
Does anyone else have children that MELT DOWN for family photos? WHYYYYYYYY? When does it get easier?!?!?
In any event, I love our family Christmas cards this year and I can’t wait to send them out. I also need to share with y’all the pictures from our family session with The Wild Bloom photography – Jenn did a PHENOMENAL job!! Especially considering our little ones were melt down city.
I also love that Minted makes it incredibly easy to edit your design, change colors, and they even have options for PRE-ADDRESSING THE ENVELOPES. Y’all… this feature is game changing. GAME. CHANGING. Did I mention game changing?
Minted also has a lot of different paper and envelope options like recycled paper or heavyweight card stock. Minted often runs specials so I always sign up for their mailing list and order when there are great discounts, free shipping, or other awesome promos. Save that money, y’all!!
If you haven’t ordered your family Christmas cards yet, there is still time to order from Minted! I ordered ours on a Sunday and they were ON MY DOORSTEP on Wednesday. Super fast!! So you can definitely get yours in time for Christmas. Hurry, friends!
What do you think? Have you ordered your Christmas or holiday cards from Minted before? Do you LIKE sending out family Christmas cards this time of year? Or do you think the tradition is outdated?
