Now is the time to put together your Christmas cards. The only problem is that they aren’t always budget friendly. Check out my favorite tips to get the best deals on Christmas cards.
Here are my favorite tips for saving money on Christmas cards:
1. Do an eCard or post on social media
Save money on the price of stamps by sending an eCard, detailed email with a picture, or put a favorite family picture on Facebook. It’s okay to skip the holiday cards if you can’t afford them. It’s also okay to skip them even if you can afford them! Save that money and put it towards savings or charity instead.
2. Go old school and send store bought folded cards
This is a great inexpensive way to send holiday cards. Tons of stores sell packs of cards for less than $5. You can even get them at the Dollar Tree. I always pick up tons of these during the after holiday sales. Print pictures through a drug store to put in the card and you can personalize it even more.
3. Print your own cards
The world is your oyster with this one. One search on Pinterest will give you a ton of ideas. Last year I printed these on my home printer. Download the printable here.
4. Personalize through photo sites
5. Check out Groupon
Groupon has lots of different deals for Christmas cards every year including deals from different stores and even Shutterfly.
6. Design your own at a store
Drug stores, Walmart, office stores, Costco, and Sam’s Club are all great places to look for deals on Christmas cards.
7. Get super personalize with Etsy
Want a super customized card? Check out Etsy! Just remember that you are dealing with individual artists and they rarely offer coupon codes. On the bright side, your supporting a small business which is always a plus.
So tell me, what do you do for cards?
