Are you a fan of getting Christmas / holiday cards in the mail? I am!! I feel like in this day and age, we never send snail mail anymore as a way of keeping in touch with our friends and family. I love getting Christmas cards in the mail from people all over the country (and the world!) and hearing what they have been up to or seeing a beautiful picture of their family. I love displaying the Christmas cards in our living space and looking at them all month long. It just brings me so much joy!

While I love getting them, sending them *can* be stressful! BUT, over the past few years, I have almost always ordered my cards solely from Minted. Not only do I love the gorgeous and unique designs that Minted offers, but I also loooooove the EASE of their system… my favorite feature is their PRE-ADDRESSED ENVELOPES. Y’all, this is a game changing feature. I keep my address book updated and uploaded in Minted’s system, and they print the addresses on the envelopes for me FOR FREEEEEEEEEEEEE. Then all you have to do is stuff and stamp! Anything to make the process a little easier is awesome in my book.Our 2018 Family Christmas Card (6)

Some years I way overthink my Christmas card design and I want like multiple pictures and a cute quote and a letter about ALL THE THINGS that have happened to us to be included. This year, I kept it simple. I let the picture and the design speak for itself… I love this beautiful and simple gold-foil cross on the navy background. It’s so classic! (And yes, I save our Christmas cards each year so I can look back at them! I love seeing our family grow over time.)Our 2018 Family Christmas Card (3)

I know it’s getting late, but if you haven’t ordered your cards yet, Minted has expedited shipping (I ordered these on Friday and they came on MONDAY) and there’s always NEW YEAR’S CARDS if you are running a tad behind this year…

What about you? What is your annual holiday card situation? Have you tried Minted before?
