Choosing the right holiday card can be overwhelming, what with all the different possibilities (and the fact that it’s kind of last-minute). But knowing your options can help ease the burden and give you some idea as to what you might want to select. Here’s everything you might want to know about holiday photo cards, from the different types of layouts available to the various styles, formats, and wording.

Layouts and Orientation

What kind of layout do you want for your holiday card? Do you like the collage look that allows you to showcase multiple photos of your family? Or would you prefer a layout that showcases your family’s best photo with a beautifully designed font splashed across the front of it? Whatever layout you decide on, know that there’s always a way to make it your own. Changing colors and fonts is always an option.

Formats

Before you get your gorgeous holiday cards printed and mailed out, think about what format you want. Some options include the following:

  • Vellum overlay
  • Postcard
  • Classic 5″ x 7″
  • Foil-pressed
  • Ornament-style
  • Gloss-press
  • Grand 6″ x 8″
  • Completely custom

Before making that purchase, browse online for a variety of holiday cards featuring different formats and styles, so you know exactly what you’re getting before you click the “Checkout” button.

Fonts and Styles

The font says everything about your holiday card (quite literally), so choose one that complements the overarching design. There are all kinds of fonts you might consider for this year’s holiday card, such as beautiful cursive fonts (like Adorn and Risotto Script) or playful holiday fonts (like Christmas Spirit or Miraculous Christmas).

What style of holiday card are you aiming for? If you’re going for a playful holiday theme, then you might choose a style that reflects that. If not, you might opt for a more formal style. Choose between the following styles:

  • Straight edged
  • Rounded corners
  • Classic frame
  • Curved frame
  • Waved frame
  • Tag-shaped

Once you’ve selected your style, think about how many photos you want on the front of your card.

Choose Your Colors Carefully

Do you want to stick with traditional holiday colors, like red, green, white, black and/or gold? Or do you want to switch things up a bit and add in a dash of something a little different? Like a blueish-gray or an assortment of colors? Whichever colors you wind up choosing, make sure they go well with the fonts and photos you chose for the card. If you really want your holiday card to be aesthetically pleasing, consider matching the colors in your photos to the colors of your holiday card (including the font). That will make for a more cohesive design and a more beautiful holiday card that your friends and relatives will cherish for a lifetime.

Designing the Perfect Holiday Card

Now that you have some ideas for your holiday card, start thinking about what to incorporate into your holiday card design. First, determine what type of layout and orientation you want, then move onto the formatting, fonts, and styles. After you’ve settled on the perfect holiday card design, get them printed and mailed out so they arrive in the mailboxes of your family and friends in time for the holidays.
