25 Amazing Christmas Cards Without Photos

Christmas is coming! Prepare yourself for the cards to start pouring in soon enough. And if you haven’t been keeping up with the family on Instagram — you’re about to be up with the times. Many of your family and friends will likely be sending your Christmas cards showcasing their lovely faces. Some may choose to put a photo of their kids and new borns and while still others will showcase their newest puppies (and we’re so not sorry about that). And while these cards will be as delightful as any — you’d prefer something that requires a little less photo editing. Didn’t take any family photos this year? Or perhaps you’re just not interested in sharing it with the world. Or better yet, there are specific people on your Christmas cards list that you’d rather just send a card without showcasing your family’s photo.

When to Mail Christmas Cards & New Years Cards

holiday-cards

The holiday season is just around the corner. Halloween has come and gone while Thanksgiving is just about to grace us with it’s delicious presence. That means you’re probably starting to wonder when to get your holiday cards out in the mail. When to mail Christmas cards is a good question and one we’re hoping to answer here.

As a rule of thumb, the post office typically takes 3-7 days to deliver domestic mail. Of course, it may take less than 3 days and in some cases it can take longer than 7. It happens. But for the most part, the 3-7 day rule of thumb rings true. That is of course, unless it’s the holidays. December for sure — although this tends to happen during just about any holiday. When more people than usual decide to mail things all at once it tends to slow things down. And while not everyone mails a Mother’s Day card (shame on you), most people do place holiday cards in the mail at about the same time of the year.

You can imagine this kind of mail traffic will cause some delays. And you’d be right. During the holidays — in this case we’re definitely talking about December — the typical mailing time slows down to around 2 weeks. Sure, there’s still a chance it will be less than that but normally from year to year this tends to be the case.

Pro tip: You can schedule all of your cards ahead of time. Set em’ and forget em’. See the easy tutorial here.
