Every year I love designing and sending out a family Christmas card (even if I have to lick and stamp 75 envelopes). There is nothing more exciting than receiving a holiday card in the mail from friends or family, so I like to reciprocate the gesture. This year I worked with Paper Culture, an eco-friendly company with high quality products, to create my most favorite card ever!
Paper Culture is an incredibly amazing company as they are dedicated to the future of our planet and the world our children will grow up in. What that means is every card is made not from regular paper – but from 100% post-consumer recycled paper. Furthermore, they will plant a tree (in a person of your choice’s honor) as a part of every order. They literally dedicate a tree to YOU! Talk about the smallest carbon footprint making the biggest sound, right?
The number of options for card design for the holidays are endless – from big to small, round to square, thick to thin – I spent quite some time choosing the best cards for our family. I also love how you have the opportunity to personalize the envelopes for your cards well (for FREE!). I was able to add graphics, our return address, and even mailing addresses for our closest family/friends. Paper Culture even offers the option to MAIL the cards for you at an additional cost.
We had quite a few photos to choose from for our Christmas card and ultimately designed two different options with our favorites. The high quality of each card was consistent throughout the two batches we ordered. There have been times in the past where I’ve found flaws in the photo or print on cards from other brands, but Paper Culture’s print work is truly beautiful.
From our family to yours, we hope you have a merry little Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!
