Holiday Cards for Busy B*&ches
Holiday cards inevitably trigger a range of mixed emotions. While it’s so fun to send and receive updates from far-flung family and friends, it adds yet another to-do on an ever-growing list. Below, our picks for websites that make the process much less painful—they all offer sealing, addressing, and stamping services.
Tinyprints allows you to search cards by theme (essential, there are thousands of options).
Our pick for classically great fonts and simple, elegant design.
Minted sources designs from independent artists, plus, their “Find It Fast” feature lets you see your photo in several cards at once.
The editable greetings here are useful if you’re the type that sends out “Happy Hanukah” and “Happy Holidays” to different portions of your mailing list.
Amazingly, Postable allows you to type custom greetings to everyone on your list —which is a whole lot more efficient than spending hours hunched over your kitchen table writing them out by hand.
Artifact Uprising’s sleek, modern cards are a hipster’s dream come true. To extend the life of your card, they offer a perforated version that your recipients can repurpose into a gift tag.
If you cringe imagining all the trees that sacrificed themselves for your holiday greetings, go with Paper Culture. They print everything on post-consumer recycled paper and plant trees to offset the carbon footprint involved in making them.
Paperless Post has a few holiday collaborations that would make any design-minded person pretty excited.
