The end of the year came fast, and here we are once again faced with the task of finding a good picture for a holiday card. As usual, we suffered through the same argument: do we feature just the kids or all four of us? As usual, we disagreed. I had no desire to be plastered on a card that would be sent around the world, finding its ways into the homes of our friends and family and ending up on a wall or mantle. We found our task of finding good photos harder than usual this year. Perhaps it’s because we don’t tend to all look into the camera lens at the same time and smile, but we also have not been very organized in our photo collecting and printing this year and didn’t really know where to start.
So, when I received an offer from Tiny Prints to review their cards and services, I was eager to find a solution to holiday card chaos.
What they are:
Tiny Prints is a company that specializes in providing the best quality social stationary in unique, fun, and modern designs. As their website states, “Tiny Prints was created by three friends who share a love of babies and an appreciation for giving and receiving good paper“. They offer personalized cards, announcements, invitations, stationary and associated accessories for all kinds of events, holidays and stages of life. Whether a flat postcard style or a more traditional folded card, they have a design and style to meet your needs.
The process was really simple. They break down the holiday cards into specific categories. Even though we celebrate Hanukkah, we wanted to get a more generic card, so I went right for the holiday cards. The first picture I sent in was a photo of the four of us, much at my husband’s urging, but Tiny Prints promptly came back to me with news that it was a “grainy” image, so I replaced it with the image you see below. It’s not my favorite photo and I could have used photos from our trip to Paris this summer that were fantastic, but both my kids are smiling and the picture kind of puts you in the holiday spirit, so voila!
Disclosure: I was provided with a set of 50 cards as a complimentary gift to facilitate the writing of this post, but all opinions expressed are my own.
