Get your cameras ready…it’s time to snap that perfect family photo for your holiday greeting cards! If you’re like me, your annual holiday card isn’t just a Target card that you picked up in the side aisle as you were at checkout the other day – it’s a masterpiece that you spent an hour picking out and personalizing with five different photos to find out which one looks best. It’s a reflection of your family and shows those you love how much the kids have changed over the past year; an annual greeting full of good wishes and memories.
One of my favorite holiday greeting card vendors this holiday season is Checkerboard. They produce a digital photograph like no other. Most digital holiday cards have a semi-gloss to them, however Checkerboard works their magic to give a matte approach to their digital photo greeting cards which gives off a contemporary feel. Their most popular designs feature bleed photos, which bleed directly off the card’s edges and take up the entire background of the card. Your holiday greeting is added to the card inside a delicate frame which blends into the photo. Many of their designs feature colored envelopes to coordinate, or envelope liners for splash of color.
If you’re looking for something a bit more unique for your holiday card you won’t be disappointed. Checkerboard has gotten creative with holiday cards made to look like die-cut bulb ornaments, (yes, a swirling hook is included), photo lollipop cards as well as cards with ribbon and crystal rhinestone details. Think the holidays are about the cool weather outside? Allow your recipients to warm up with their winter mittens holiday photo cards which feature your digital photograph tucked into die-cut paper mittens, which are strung together with a candy cane striped piece of yarn. The designs are just as modern and unique as you can imagine during this wintery holiday season ahead!
