Choosing the perfect design for your Christmas ecards

Wish your kin a Merry Christmas with our online Christmas cards. Our festive design templates are sure to please everyone—even the Grinch in your life. Whether your Christmas spirits are high-proof or more kid-friendly, you’ll find the best online holiday cards overflowing with just your kind of good cheer.

Choose a wintry motif featuring wreaths, boughs of holly, and sparkling snowflakes, or a design inspired by classic characters including Santa, his reindeer fleet, gingerbread men, and all the elves. For those who’d prefer a traditional religious Christmas card, we feature designs featuring nativity scenes and intricate illustrations worthy of their own Advent calendar. No matter your holiday style, online Christmas cards are the perfect way to send season’s greetings. Save trees this holiday season and opt for an earth-friendly approach to the holiday season.

Personalize your Christmas card with a photo

If you’re looking to show off a new family member (human, canine, or other) or your holiday portraits from social media, our photo Christmas cards let you put a portrait front-and-center on your good wishes for the season. With online design tools, your holiday greeting has never looked better, or been easier to create and send. First, find a recent photo where the family is centered and the backdrop is clean–like sand, snow, or sky. Portraits look best when you’re not competing with the background. Then use the built-in editing apps on your smartphone to reduce red eye, lighten, brighten, and punch up the saturation of your photo. Then the fun starts with choosing a card! Match a patterned or colorful design with a black-and-white photo. Prefer a simple card? Let your photo be the star.

Send custom Christmas cards with our Personal Design Services

We also understand that sometimes you need something custom to make your Christmas cards picture-perfect. Our Personal Design Services team is here to make sure your Christmas and holiday greetings turn out just right. We are more than happy to help resize images, color-correct photos from social media or add your company’s logo to your card as the final finishing touch. Consider it our Christmas gift to you. Whether you have something specific in mind or don’t know where to start, we’re here for you.

What to write in your online Christmas card

Christmas is the perfect time to share your warmest wishes with the ones nearest and dearest to you. Keep things short and sweet with a sentence or two about your holiday hopes, or share your year in review. For example, are you welcoming any new additions or making any big moves? The most authentic greetings come from the heart. Simply share with your loved ones how much they mean to you, or let business partners and colleagues know they’re valued and appreciated. It’s as simple as that.

Explore business and professional holiday cards

Send best wishes and season’s greetings to colleagues, clients, supporters, customers, and more with Paperless Post’s wide array of professional holiday and Christmas cards. You can customize our beautiful designs with your company logo and colors, add photos from the year, and more. Creating a mailing list is easy with simple .csv uploads and saved email addresses and phone numbers from previous Paperless Post sends. Your recipients will appreciate your thoughtfulness, and can even message you back directly through Paperless Post.

When to send your digital Christmas cards

There’s no wrong time to send Christmas cheer, but we recommend sending your digital Christmas cards via email, text, or shareable link two to three weeks ahead of Christmas. You’ll be sure to be one of the first ones to get them in the holiday spirit. More of a traditionalist? Schedule your Christmas cards to send on Christmas Day itself.
