To Send or Not to Send....(Christmas Cards)

"You have such a pretty face, you should be on a Christmas card!" Yes, a quote from one of my favorite Christmas movies, Elf (as mentioned before!)

Well, why not put that lovely face of yours on a Christmas card? There are so many to choose from, especially online, so the real question is what is the best price and who's going to get them to you in time to send out before 2011?

With people being crunched on time + money this holiday season, many people are opting out of sending Christmas cards. But what if sending a Christmas card not only brought joy and smiles to your loved ones and kept you in touch with friends and family, but also helped get you your dream job? Check out this article from www.Glassdoor.com about "How Holiday Cards Can Help You Network".

The big ones in the "Christmas Card Industry" are Shutterfly, Snapfish and Hallmark,...all online of course! Let's take a deeper look at my favorites offered from Shutterfly....

My favorites tend to be the classic "Merry Christmas" cards such as this one, (and isn't that blonde family cute?) Maybe we'll send that one out + keep that picture! (my family will be like....um...who are these people?) My other favorite is this 5x7 card pictured here. Of course if you a celebrating another holiday other than Christmas, there many fun designs like "Starlight Joy" or this "Classic Monogram" card. If you're crunched for time, and time is money, Shutterfly can address + stamp and send out your Season's Greetings for you!

So my Conclusion to sending out Christmas cards? Well, it's only once a year, there are plenty of cards and different costs to choose from. Secondly I always enjoy it sending and receiving cards, so I say to certainly send out your Season's Greetings! Keep in touch with loved ones and bring joy to your friends + family! Merry Christmas!
