Family Christmas Card Ideas | Erik, Maddy, Mya & Romi
This year I am super excited to be offering Christmas Mini Sessions! I figured I would give you all some Christmas card ideas to pair with your new adorable family photos. The sessions will be in Stockton, Utah at Faust Creek Farms. (The cutest tree lot you ever did see!) They also have a BBQ food truck on the lot and man, I wish they were cooking throughout the winter. What would be better than snacking on some ribs while picking out your Christmas tree?? That’s my kind of shopping!
Mini sessions will be on Friday, November 25th, and Saturday, November 26th! You will have your images back in 7 days or less so that you can order your Christmas cards. I still have a few slots available so contact me asap if you’re interested! $100 for 20 minutes and 5 images!
I also am working with one of my cute brides, Kaci (you might remember her from her beautiful backyard wedding, or her reverse first look!). She is a graphic designer and will have some options for anyone who wants us to handle it all from start to finish. It is a busy time of year, so if you want to pass it off to anyone, Kaci is the girl to trust. Then all you have to do is show up to get some pictures taken!
For all you DIYers
If you are a DIY type of person, no worries! I still have some christmas card ideas for you! Let me share my favorite print shops that a business license isn’t required.
Let’s start with Artifact Uprising. They are amazing. They have super clean and modern designs. All you have to do is drop a photo in. Also, extra points for foiling options! What is more festive than some beautiful silver or gold foiling on your Christmas card? Nothing!
VistaPrint is also great. Their designs aren’t quite as modern and you have to rummage through some really cheesy ones too, (there’s something for everyone, I suppose.) but in the end they are a solid contender! I get my business cards through them and I have been really pleased with their customer service.
I don’t recommend places like ShutterFly, Walgreens, Walmart, etc. Their printers are aimed more to print consumer photos. So when they print photos that have been edited with professional programs, the colors start getting a bit wonky and they always seem to have way too much contrast in my opinion. I figure, if you’re going to pay for a professional photo, why ruin it with a bad print job. haha There are lots of other print options out there and you can always find online discount codes! So the prices end up being the same, or sometimes even cheaper, for something that is much better quality.
LIFE HACK: I designed a self-inking stamp with my our address and names on it and cut our envelope addressing time in half! I think it was $30 and it will stamp about 500 times. Then when it finally does run out, you can just have the ink refilled! Serious life saver when it comes to mailing out all these envelopes!
