Since I was a kid, getting Christmas cards was one of my favorite things about Christmas. I used to sit in the kitchen and look through all the cards that my family got and read every card that came to us.
Ok, that’s a lie.
I used to sift through the cards looking for the people who sent photos of their families and long letters letting us know what was going on in their lives. I loved that. Christmas Cards: the way to stalk your friends lives before Facebook.
I have waited for the past 25 years to be able to send my own cards and now that I am living over 16,000 miles away from my family (and living with a boy — ooh!) I feel like I am finally ready to send my own Christmas Cards. (and no mom, this does not mean I should be axed out of the family letter, which is basically the best thing I read all year!)
In addition to being that age where I get to send cards to family and friends, my best friend Lauren is the social media coordinator at Wedding Paper Divas (which is a Tiny Prints brand). Lauren posts all over their facebook, and writes these really beautiful wedding and engagement stories (that may be her own engagement story).. she lets me know about the best sales and discount codes for Tiny Prints (and then I pass them on to you, shhh). Love this girl!
I am a perfectionist, and I am having the hardest time selecting the perfect Christmas card to send to our friends and family. My perfect card has a photo, is bright and cheery, not too expensive (we have to ship to Australia and then mail half back to America), and gives off a young couple vibe as opposed to a family thing.
These are the cards Ben and I are looking at…
To collect our friends and families mailing addresses that we don’t currently have we are using Postable. Postable is a really easy way to collect and keep track of addresses, phone numbers, and birthdates. Once you sign up for an account you just send out a link to the people you need information from, they fill it out, and their information is automatically updated in your account. Lauren used Postable for her wedding invitations this year, and I figure if someone who works for a card company uses their address services then it must be good.
Postable also allows you to create cards directly from their website… but I don’t have a discount for Postable. Sorry.
