I know it seems like summer just ended and the last thing you want to think about is the holidays. But getting a head start on holiday cards could make things more zen when the holiday rush actually arrives. I have been thinking about ways to reduce stress around the holidays. Whether you are getting professional photos or just using some candid highlights for the year, if you start now it will save time later. Whether its just booking a photographer and getting it on the calendar or starting to go through some of your photos of this past year and putting special ones into file for when you start designing your cards.
Also going through some of your photos can help you appreciate and relive special moments. The year goes by so fast. I usually take tons of photos and many are still on my iphone or on my camera forgotten. Its can be fun activity with the kids too. It’s like storytime, but it’s about them.
When you are ready to print. Many places offer specials if you do them early. Vertical Printing and Graphics who I use for my business printing also does custom-made holiday cards. They offer great professional and friendly service and they ship too. (Prices start as low as .40 a card for 100). If you order before October 31st, you can receive 25% off your order.
