How do you choose a card design? Do you get the picture taken first then match it to a card design or do you check out all the designs, find a few that you like and then take the pictures to match?
I like to get the pic and then match a card design. I just took our family pictures this weekend too, which is really late for me. I like to get them ordered by the beginning of November. Being that I love to take pictures, my kids know that there are just certain pictures that I HAVE TO GET every year, Christmas is no exception. But wrangling the three boys up can be challenging (there was a threat of punishment mind you). I got several awesome pictures in just a total of 6 shots! Now, it was only like 35 degrees out on Sunday morning so we had to work quick. But it worked. I think the cold weather made us look better! Aside from finding Christmas Card design that matches out portrait I also found this cute Nice List Certificate.
Cardstore is an innovative online resource that removes the hassle from mailing out holiday cards. Once you create your custom cards with personalized pictures, messages, and signature, Cardstore will print, stamp and send the cards for you – helping to take one huge item off your already full holiday to-do list.
Uploading and using the Cardstore site is pretty easy. Although I wish the cards were available in both landscape and portrait mode to make it a bit easier. You can narrow your search by the number of pictures, art style, product type, price or recipient. With over 1200 Personalized Christmas cards, they are sure to have one that will make your family portrait picture perfect!
