Why Sending Paper Christmas Cards Online? Check These 3 Reasons

By: Qing Gu

Paper Christmas cards or Christmas e cards?? This is a very common question when it comes to the most important holiday season in a year.

Most of people choose to send Christmas greeting cards online because they want to save their time and money.? However I usually go for paper greeting cards.

You may not agree with me, so here are the 3 reasons why I think paper cards are the best choices:

1) Keep the Christmas greetings for a longer time eve a life time.

These cards make sure that your close friends and family members can keep and treasure your personalized holiday greetings. On the other hand, if I ask you where are the Christmas e cards you received from your friends last Christmas, I bet you have no idea where they are.

2) Show people your personality and your care about them.

It's a lot of fun when you send personalized paper Christmas cards by making your own with die-cuts, rubber stamps, or designer paper.

One of my favorite greeting card ideas is angel Christmas cards which are holiday cards with images of angels as the focus point in the Christmas card design.?

Another idea use Christian clip arts and adding Christmas card verse.? You can use clip arts like angels, the three wise men, Mary and Joseph in the manger with baby Jesus.? Also add contemporary Christmas clip arts, such as reindeer, snowman, Xmas tree, Christmas ornament, etc.? I must remind you use "Blessed Christmas" instead of "Merry Christmas" if you're making a Christian Christmas greeting card.?

For people who love pets, you can make pet photo or picture card for them.

For example, you can use any kitty rubber stamps with kittens playing with a ball of thread or doing other cute activities.? This is cute.

3) Family photos - It's the best time to use them!

If you are good at taking digital photos, instead of just another typical card with a picture of Santa Claus or a snowman, or other such typical images, you can now send far more personalized paper Christmas cards that are relevant to both you and the recipient.? And the beauty if it is in its simplicity – all you need is a digital camera and a computer.

Once you have taken your photos, the next thing to do is to upload them to your computer so that they're easily accessible when you need to transfer them to an online photo site. This is where you can use the various tools that companies such as Shutterfly.com and Tinyprints.com have on their websites. Using these tools, you can add various effects such as festive costumes, additional winter background effects, and many other features your digital camera software wouldn't come supplied with.

The true beauty of these sites and more is that for those of you who love traditional Christmas cards, you don't need to forego this touch even with online Christmas cards. Although mainly used for creating the cards and then sending them via your email system, you can also create the cards and then turn them into 'hard copy' cards.

Ok, it's very enough to show you why I choose to use paper Christmas cards and make it on your own.

Just imagine when you say "Don we now our festive holiday appear!" or you find your dog love wearing costumes and posing for holiday photos, you know what you should do for your paper Christmas cards.

Have fun!
