How to Make the Perfect Christmas Card

4th December 2017

As the festive spirit sweeps the nation, homeowners all across the country are wrapping presents, setting up the Christmas tree and rolling out the decorations. However, do not become so consumed with your holiday decorations and take the time to acknowledge your friends and families by sending out some festive greetings cards. Although it may sound like a chore, Print & Digital have outlined three top tips to help you create the perfect Christmas card for everyone on your mailing list.

1. Know Your Audience

Whether you are sending out one or two cards to a few special people or a bunch of cards to everyone you know, knowing your audience is key to creating the perfect Christmas card. If you are sending out a batch of cards, aim down the middle and find a cheap assortment of cards that capture the festive season. If you are sending out one or two cards, then spend some time finding a card that is specific to them, rather than a generic image of a robin or a snowman.
 

 

2. Personal Touch

Depending on how much time and effort (and money) you are willing to contribute to these cards, adding a personal touch, such as a family portrait, always go down well. Whether it be writing a message of considerable length, including the paw print of a family pet or plastering you and your families face across the front of the card, any of these approaches will make your card far more memorable than any other card. If you are attempting the family portrait, be careful not to overdo the cheesiness, as these cards are memorable for all the wrong reasons.
 

 

3. Be Creative

The theme of this blog post has centered around being creative and going the extra mile in order to create the perfect Christmas card. Unfortunately, you are not going to be able to achieve this with a simple ‘To you, merry Xmas, from us’ scribbled in your card. Make the message personal: why not mention something memorable that happened this past year? Or why not include a tongue-in-cheek reference to something embarrassing the recipient did?
 

 
The only way to create the perfect Christmas card is to enjoy making them. If you are still viewing the task of writing Christmas cards as a chore then maybe leave it to someone else. However, if you put the time and effort into this task, you can leave your friends and family with a card they will treasure for years to come.
