Photo Christmas Cards

by dustytoes

Easily create your own photo Christmas cards using the variety of templates provided.

Zazzle is a custom print-on-demand company where designers, like myself, create templates for buyers to use. At holiday time, Christmas greeting cards that contain photo templates are popular.

Many of these designs have a tropical theme. Because I live in the tropics, I realize the need for having unique cards to send from a warm climate.

Whether you prefer simple one photo flat cards or multi-photo greetings, we have a lot of designs and varieties to choose from.

Christmas Photo Cards

Photo cards now come in a variety of styles.

At Zazzle, designers will work with a variety of card styles to create beautiful templates for the holiday season.  Many traditional themed cards can be found on the site.   My Holiday Store caters to those people who live in a tropical location, or like the idea of sending warm Christmas wishes.

Flat cards are very popular and usually have all photos and text (greeting and signature) on one side.  Beach scenes and flamingos are popular as are my starfish, or sea stars, combined with holly leaves or ornaments.

If you prefer to send traditional folded greetings, we have those as well, and a whole selection of foil printed cards also.

A new style card is the triple-fold card where the sides will open out.  I’ve made a few to sell and they contain big photo templates on the sides with a greeting in the center.  See the red card like this, with snowboarding photos, below.

Beach Christmas Photo Cards

Beach lovers, surfers and those who live in a tropical climate, will appreciate the many "tropical" themed photo cards in the Holiday Store.

I have lived in Florida for most of my life and we usually celebrate the holiday season in warmth.  One year my Christmas tree blew over because the windows were open and the breeze was blowing!  That sort of thing doesn't happen in a northern climate.

We also like to include fun decor like seashells on the Christmas tree and Santa in a bathing suit.  Why not send custom photo cards with designs made especially for beach bums?

How Does The Photo Template Work?

how to do photo templatesA photo template is created by the designer using a sample photo which takes the place of the one the customer will be using.  We try to use fun, attention grabbing images and so should you, the customer, when replacing with your own.

Each template is made in a certain size that will hopefully accommodate any photo the customer wants to add.

It's always best, as a customer, to use a personal picture that closely resembles the orientation of the template image - your photo will be centered.  

Use horizontal (landscape) or vertical (portrait) orientation as the template dictates.

Each product has a "customize further" option, where you can make more changes to the design yourself.

Christmas or Hanukkah or Something Else?

Postcard Greetings

Holiday postcards can also have photo templates. Not only are they cheap to buy, but they have a glossy surface which works like a regular photo card.  Photos naturally look great on them!  They don't require an envelope, and postage stamps cost less for postcards.  

This year I am making more Christmas photo postcards because I believe they are a good alternative option to the traditional glossy photo cards.  You may also change the background color on some of the cards, such as the bright blue here, using the "customize" button on the product page.

Magnetic Photo Greeting Cards

Zazzle has new options for magnetic cards.

Zazzle's newest magnetic greeting cards come in a variety of sizes.  They are called "magnetic business cards" by Zazzle, but work just as well as greetings.

Magnetic cards are more expensive, and they can come with white envelopes for mailing.  It's the customers choice to add envelopes or not.  There is a price increase for envelopes. 

Sizes include: 3.5 x 2 (very small - business card size), 4.25 x 5.6 - cute size for a card, 5.25 square, 5x7 - traditional card size, or 4x9.

One design will not work on all sizes, and if you choose to change the size, make sure all photos and wording are visible.  Your cards will print as they show in the preview.

Corporate Holiday Season Photo Cards

Corporate photo cards can be flat, folded or postcards.  The magnetic business cards would work well to send at Christmas.

Include a picture of the team, group, management, business partners or new products.  Sometimes photo templates will work for a business logo upload.

These are so nice, I just got one the other day as I'm a new second cousin. My cousin and his wife just had the most beautiful baby. They sent the multi photo birth announcement cards out. Got me thinking about the upcoming holiday, need to work on those holiday Christmas and New Years cards now. You're my go to gal for that sort of thing. Thanks :)K
