I have been hard at work getting all the new holiday designs ready for the release, including new holiday photo card designs. You may recognize many of these designs from the various holiday challenges (1, 2) I participated in earlier this year over at Minted. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a selection made, but am happy to release them to you via my Zazzle shop.
I’m having a hard time picking a favorite design. I spent some time working in watercolors this spring. It’s exciting for me to see those little sketches come to life in the form of a holiday photo card. These designs are simple and elegant. The rest of the collection features more illustrative work, especially Magnolia Holiday.
For 2016, the holiday photo card collection will only be available via the Zazzle shop. Each design’s collection includes coordinating elements such as printed envelopes, postage, return address labels and wrap around labels. Some designs also have personalized holiday photo ornaments and return address stamps. I used Zazzle last year for the fulfillment of my own Christmas cards and the process should be easy and I was very happy with the quality of the paper and printing. It will also allow you to upload your photo, customize the personalization areas and get a preview immediately. If you need to modify the design, you can by clicking the big blue “customize” button that appears over the preview area. Zazzle offers many paper options as well as various card shapes.
If you visit the holiday photo card section of this shop, you will find all of this year’s and last year’s designs. Each page contains a link that will direct you to the collection page on Zazzle for that design. There you can view all the pieces of the collection.
I’ve got a few more fun holiday items coming to the shop over the next few weeks and will let you know as soon as they are available!
