I really want to do Christmas cards this year. I think I’ve skipped doing them the last two years… and while it freed up a ton of time, it’s time to step up to the plate!
So, here’s my debate: regular generic card or personalized photo card.
I’d be writing a personal message in each… so, it’s not a matter of just wanting a blank card to send – I guess I’m trying to figure out if it’s odd to send a card with a photo.
I know I enjoy seeing pictures of my friends – but, since it’s just me and DH, it’s not like we have kids to share, etc…. also, I know some of my single friends really hate seeing pictures of couples and families (since it highlights the fact that they are single).
Granted… I can’t even think of what pictures I would use for cards…but I’m curious what your thoughts are on them!

I love them! and I love doing them! I was debating doing them this year or not.
I love getting them because it gives me pictures to update my fridge with. I put all my wedding thank you cards with pictures on it and my christmas ones too.
I was debating doing a christmas letter this year…. but I am not too sure about it.

I LOVE photo cards and look forward to getting them every year. We are sending out cards with our E-pics this year.

I love photos, they always get put on the fridge and stay there until one of the cats manages to get a hold of it and it becomes lost in the picture grave yard under the fridge or stuck between stove and fridge.

I love photo cards too. We aren’t doing one this year, but we usually do.

I prefer generic pretty cards with a heartfelt message inside. Not to say that I don’t like updated pictures but I’ve never gotten into the photo Christmas card thing. I’d rather have a recent picture that is enclosed in the card that makes for less awkward storing/displaying (if you want it on the fridge or in an album).

We always did pictures before kids. We were those geeks who would take a picture with our pup 🙂

I love picture cards! I never had a problem with them when I was single (but I completely understand the nerve they can hit for some singles), and really liked hanging them on my fridge. Christmas photo cards are really the only printed pictures I have of friends since I rarely get photos printed.
