Christmas Cards

6 Best Websites for Buying Christmas Cards

As we move away from store-bought Christmas cards and towards customized ones in this technological age, it can be intimidating if you have never ordered Christmas cards online.

Never fear, because it’s easier than you think, and you don’t have to be an expert to make a great card! These six great websites will guide you through the simple process of creating your cards, then the rest is a piece of cake.

Minted
We love this website because you can enjoy designing your own card to fit your preferences, but before it gets printed, a professional graphic designer reviews your design, edits it, and sends it back to you for your approval. This way, no matter your level of design skills, you can have a customized card that also has a professional touch. It costs $123 for 50 cards, but they frequently offer discounts, such as 15% off a purchase of $150 or more. 

Simply to Impress
This is one of the most affordable websites, on which you can order customized Christmas cards at only $65 for 50 cards. Plus, they often have discounts on top of their already low prices. (At the time of this writing, you can receive 25% off your entire order.) They don’t have quite as many design options, but for that price, you can’t find anything better, and the options they do have are very chic. 

Shutterfly
Shutterfly is one of the most well-known photo printing websites, and they have quite a variety of options to choose from: cards, calendars, photo books, canvas prints, and much more. They do offer hundreds of professional design options, but you unfortunately cannot customize them as much. The best part about this website is that it’s highly reputable and it’s also very affordable. With their promotions and discounts, you can score 50 cards for as low as $57. 

Tiny Prints
A partner website of Shutterfly, Tiny Prints is anything but small. On this site, you can customize your own cards and have the option of having a professional look over the design and request a digital proof before printing for only $2. The price is a little steeper than some of the other sites, at $104 for 50 cards, but you can rest assured that you will have the most gorgeous Christmas cards ever. 

Paperless Posts
As the name implies, Paperless Posts started off only doing e-cards, but they have since expanded to include paper cards as well! You can customize literally anything on these cards, even the lining of the envelopes, so you can let your inner graphic designer out! In return for this level of customization, you have to pay a little extra ($115 for 50 cards), but they do have a few free e-card options for Christmas, birthdays, and other events. 

Pingg
Pingg mainly focuses on e-cards, but you can also order paper cards for $2.50 a card. You don’t have as many customization options, but there are so many professionally designed options on their website that you really don’t need to change anything. They have cards from famous designers, including Martha Stewart, so you can find what you’re looking for, no matter your taste. Lastly, if you just want to send e-cards and forgo paper cards, you can send up to 250 for free!
