Holiday Card Wording, Etiquette and Christmas Cards

It's almost that time of year again, The Holidays! If you're like me, then you are already excited about sending out your holiday greeting cards. The last few years have been especially fun with now having the little one to take pictures of! Last year, I decided to be my own photographer and get creative with taking photo's of my little one. It was a lot of fun and much easier as she was just barely at the age of learning to roll over! Now she's on the go and walking everywhere! These days it's hard to capture a picture that isn't blurry!

Last year we ordered our photo's from Tiny Prints and I loved how they came out!  They have a lot of great customizable options and sizes. I loved the great quality of paper they print on, they even provided an option of rounded edges for free. This year they have lots of glitzy and sparkly holiday cards to choose from! I can't wait to get mine ordered!

However, while picking out a card can often be the fun and exciting part, then next step is personalizing it to say that perfect holiday greeting. This can be a bit of a challenge! 

Some people like to use Religious/Christmas wording. Others may like a general "Holiday" greeting, which can include Christmas, Hanukkah and New Years.  (See Examples Below) You can also get creative with quotes or come up with clever rhymes. I'm not that clever, but there's a great article on Christmas Card wording by Tiny Prints to give you more inspiration! 

Another question that tends to come up a lot is; "how to sign our name?" The Carter Family? The Carters? The Carter's? 

When signing your last name, you do not need to use an apostrophe with the "s" as that is used to show possession. As in the "Carter's House".  You can simply sign "The Carter Family" or "The Carters" 

Here are a few basic wording examples you can use:

"Best Wishes to you this Christmas and a Happy New Year! The Carter Family"

"Season's Greetings and Best Wishes this New Year! The Carter Family"

"The Carters wish you a very Happy Holiday season" (as seen above) 

"Wishing you a Merry Christmas filled with Joy and Love!" 

"May the gift of Love, Joy & Peace be yours This Christmas"

"Warmest wishes this Christmas and a Happy New Year!

"Wishing you a Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!"

I hope this inspires you to get the juices flowing for your Christmas Cards; and of course, I wish you all a Happy Holiday Season!
