Just did ours over the weekend from Vistaprint. First time ordering from them so we’ll see.
I’m kinda bummed because I meant to remove the colored back but hit submit before I did. I now paid $7.99 to have a colored back on my holiday cards when the cards themselves were only $6.24!!
I got 50 cards for $21 after S+H and taxes.
THIS is the one I went with and I wrote Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas.
I signed it from my husband, I, baby and our pup!
On the back I wrote:
Wishing you and yours love, joy & the comfort of family this holiday season. A new year with new beginnings.
Our little family grows by one in the new year in our new home at:
1234 Main St
Pleasantville, NY 14321
It seemed apt for us because the new year will bring a new home and new baby for us.
Did you do your holiday cards yet? Care to share the link or what special message you wrote?

I am not that ambitious. I have a load of cards so I just pick ’em out, sign ’em, and send. I won’t be sending them out til the beginning of December, probably. Your card is super cute.

I am not usually that on top of it! Granted I paid for slow delivery so it won’t get here till first week of December either. 🙂

My cards normally go out about the third week of December. I’m bad about it.

I don’t do anything Christmas until the day after Thanksgiving. There’s acradio station here already playing 24/6 Christmas music and I just don’t get it.

I ordered mine through vista also! Reading this though.. CRAP! I should’ve typed something. Now I’ll have to handwrite them all! I used the 100 free postcard deal with a Christmas template instead of buying an actual “holiday card,” here is ours!

I did them early so that I can pay for the slowest shipping method. It’ll get here around first week of December. 🙂
Awe, super cute! Good idea about the free postcards. I’m partial to the long vertical since my invites and save the dates were the same way! 😉

Last year I just bought some pretty cards from Target, but since we are getting married just after Thanksgiving, I am hoping that we will have at least one nice picture of us from the wedding that we can make vistaprint cards with!
@regberadaisy: I loved the one that you picked! It’s very festive but not over the top!
@LoveMySailor1018: I think that post card is adorable, and it’s probably quicker than you think to just write a little something handwritten on them!

We are getting pics taken right after the wedding so we can get cards out! We are going through portrit innovations if any of you have one near you they are having a really good special!!

I got ours all printed through Sam’s Club! $15 for 50! This is the style we used:
I still need to address some of them, get stamps, and write notes on some of them, but I wanted to be ready to send them out right after Thanksgiving because a lot of people don’t have our new address.

Not yet, but we need to get started on them ASAP!
