When to send online holiday cards?

Most of our users send the day of Christmas, but others like to be “the first on the mantle” (or, in our digital case, “first in the inbox”) and send their virtual holiday cards as soon as December 1st rolls around. Send digital holiday cards and envelopes with tools like our online address book, which lets you save this year’s recipients as a custom mailing list—the perfect head start for next year’s holiday card or something to keep on hand for other future mailings.

Why send digital holiday cards?

An online happy holidays card will never be late, lost, or untrackable. Nor will a holiday card envelope get damaged in the mail! Virtual holiday cards also allow you to connect with loved ones, when being physically together isn’t possible. The holiday season is all about being together with our nearest and dearest, but it isn’t always possible—whether for budget reasons, or because of social distancing. Luckily we offer holiday greeting cards for every style that deliver instantly. From illustrated Christmas cards to photo cards to funny Christmas e-cards, send your warmest holiday wishes with a few simple clicks. We know your holiday to-do list is lengthy, but making and sending your annual holiday cards online is easier than ever. Our online card maker simplifies sending season's greetings to loved ones, so you can pour yourself some eggnog and be done in a snap.

Wording ideas for holiday cards

Let your family, the holiday, or the crisp winter season be the focus of your happy holiday cards. Our extensive holiday collection features unique holiday cards decked out with a wide variety of beautiful designs, as well as pre-formatted copy to get you started. Whether you prefer holiday photo cards to flaunt your family portrait, or narrative-driven cards with playful illustrations, there’s something here that suits you. Once you pick your holiday card design, personalize your online holiday greeting. If you’re into the scenic holiday imagery that gives you that warm and fuzzy feeling, there are snowy cityscapes, sledding hills, snowmen, and wreaths with holly to get everyone in the spirit. Let the scene inspire tales of your family ski trip, or how the weather has been this winter. There are also mugs of cocoa, wrapped presents, bright lights, and text-only options to choose from, as well as traditional patterns (like winter plaid and snowflakes), gold and silver accents, and hints of texture. Add a festive online backdrop and pick between our corresponding envelopes. Pair your decked out design with an update on what all the grandkids are up to. Go for big and bold or sleek and modern with holiday cards from well-known brands such as kate spade new york, Mr. Boddington’s Studio, and Bernard Maisner. Choosing a minimalist design? Keep your messaging merry and to the point.
