It always seems that December just creeps up on me! I have great intentions of sending out Holiday cards every year, and most years I find myself rushing to the mailbox the day before Christmas to get them mailed, in hopes they will reach their destinations before the start of the New Year.
And it’s like this EVERY. SINGLE. YEAR. (Despite my good intentions)
But not this year! Oh no sirree. I was prepared. I spent just a little time online and armed myself with every necessity I needed to get those cards out in a timely fashion.
If you need a little help in this department (like I did) I’ll share my secret with you.
I love Shutterfly. I use them for all kinds of snazzy things. Their Calendars make perfect Christmas presents. I’m using these Christmas Tags to top my gifts this year, and have I mentioned their Christmas photo cards? OHHHHHHH…those Christmas cards.
I print my cards with them evvvvvery year. Even the years my family and friends don’t get them until February.
Some of my Faves this year:
And this one:
There’s a style for everyone!
And you know what else totally rocks? You don’t even have to use one of their designs to have a card printed. If you are really ambitious and want to design your own card (or if you use my favorite design site www.digitalgreetings.etsy.com) you can still have your cards printed at great prices. Just upload your design, order the number you want, and badda bing badda boom…they will arrive at your doorstep beautifully printed and ready to send out. It is seriously that simple.
So this year I opted to
design my own card. (ahem…I mean have my talented sister design one for me). If you want a sneak peek, click on over to www.digitalgreetings.etsy.com. You just might find it there. I will upload my design, order 50 cards, and have them shipped right to my doorstep.
Do you want to know how much my 50 cards will cost me?
(pausing for dramatic effect)
NOTHING!! I know…it doesn’t really get better than that. I just pay the shipping, and 50 free cards are headed my way.
And because Christmas is the giving season, I’ll let you in on a little secret.
YOU CAN GET 50 FREE CARDS TOO!!
It’s as simple as this: If you are willing to write a blog post about Shutterfly, just click on this link: http://blog.shutterfly.com/5358/holiday2010-blog-submission-form/, fill out the form, and Shutterfly will e-mail you with the requirements. Do those, and your golden. I mean it. GOLDEN!!!
I know….this may sound like a shameless plug in order for me to get 50 free cards. And I can’t lie. It is.
But I can’t lie.
I really DO love Shutterfly. With or without the FREE-ness.
And I promise, you will too!
