Photo Christmas Cards

by dustytoes

Christmas cards with places to add one or more photos to share.

Nearly everyone enjoys sharing photos these days, and what better time to shine a light on your best photos than at the holidays? Family photo Christmas cards are always popular, but these days people enjoy sharing pictures of their pets, vacations, and special events as well.

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. But, I also make traditional designs.

Whether you prefer simple one photo flat cards or multi-photo greetings, we have a lot of designs and varieties to choose from. Many cards also come as an instant download, which is perfect for procrastinators.

Multi-photo Christmas Cards Are Gaining Popularity

What better way to update family and friends than with your photos added to a Christmas, or holiday card?  When it comes to sharing, the more photos the better!  Load your greeting card up with pictures of the kids, a special occasion and / or fun photos of the family pets.

We try to get as many photo templates as possible onto our cards.  Remember, the more pictures, the smaller each photo will be, and postcards are smaller in size than 5x7 inch cards.  But it's a great way for large families to get everyone in separately.

Multi-photo Christmas Cards

Flat cards (not postcards) are also downloadable to share digitally.

Share Photos on Christmas Cards, Printed or as Downloads

We now offer instant downloads on many holiday card designs.

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, but we also have traditional designs.

Many folded cards and flat paper designs are now available to purchase as an instant download.  This means you are buying the design to customize over and over, and it can be shared online.  This is perfect for busy people who never quite get around to buying and sending out Christmas cards.

Share Special Events and Pets in Photos

When creating a personalized photo card for the holiday season, we obviously want to share our very best pictures with the recipients.

Besides the usual family picture, consider sharing photos from the past year's big events.  Did you buy a new house? Take a fabulous trip?  Get a new pet?  Maybe you were married, or had a baby.  All of these things have the potential for making an interesting greeting.

Or, send a picture of your pet if you like it better than people photos.  A sweet fur-baby always makes a lovely greeting.

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?

Big, Double Folded Greeting Cards

Holiday designs with two big photos inside the card.

One of the newer card styles in our store is the double-fold, triple page greeting card.  The inside of this card is the place for large photos - to fit the 5x7 inch pages.  A personal message, or annual Christmas letter, can be added to the center of the card.  The front has a simple image or greeting, but the inside is the part that will show when stood on a mantle or table.  Because of the double-fold, the cards should stand on their own, and I like that idea.

How Does The Photo Template Work?

In case you are new to adding photos to items before purchase.

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, 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.

Holiday Season Custom Postcards

Postcards can be an inexpensive way to reach out at Christmas.

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. 

Photo Postcards for Merry Christmas and / or Happy New Year

Postcards are one of the cheapest and easiest ways to send holiday greetings.

Corporate Holiday Season Photo Cards

It can be a good idea to reach out to customers at the holiday season.  This red card is a vertical design with a photo template in the center.

Add a picture of the whole office, the manager, or the building.  Your logo may fit the space as well.  The greeting is "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year" but is easy to change to anything you'd like.  "Seasons Greetings" or "Happy Holidays" may work better to include a wider range of celebrations.

The business name can be included in the signature lines at the bottom of the card.

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
