Ever since I was little, one of my favorite parts about the holiday season is receiving Christmas cards from family and friends. We always display the cards somewhere in the house – on a mantle, around a doorframe, or even hanging from garland. There was an unspoken rule growing up though, you had to send a card to receive a card, so I remember helping my Mom sign and address a huge stack in early December. The best Christmas cards we’ve ever sent are this year’s batch from Mpix.
Once Brandon and I became Mr. and Mrs. we started sending a Christmas card of our own. There was a time when I picked up generic cards featuring Santa or Frosty from the grocery store, but once I had my first set of professional pictures after our wedding, I’ve always designed my own.
This year we tried a new company, Mpix, for our first Christmas cards sent from our new state of Connecticut. We all dressed in our festive wear, headed to a local park, and took photos with my favorite photographer, Elizabeth Grant. Once we received the photos, I uploaded our favorites to my Mpix account and started playing around with all of the terrific Christmas card designs offered. The foil-pressed cards are so beautiful! If you don’t have any photos you would like to use on your cards, the Modern Pop Cards are fun!
With premium designs, high quality materials, and 1-2 day shipping, Mpix is holiday card headquarters. Whether you would like to make a Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year’s, or just a winter holiday card, there are a variety of cards you can easily personalize.
While you’re designing your cards, put in an order for a copy of the photos you use on Mpix’s website. I have ordered prints from the site and they’re just as high quality as the cards themselves. We loved our pictures from our photographer, so we wanted to have them on display in our home year-round (and not just on our cards). Starting today, Mpix is offering 20% off of Photographic prints – the code will automatically apply in your shopping cart.
I received these cards in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
