here come the holiday cards!

October 26, 2009

xmascardsIn my family, we start looking for our holiday cards in September which is probably why I used to have a small stationery company – to be able to get them at wholesale for everyone! Now that I am back in the real world and need to find my cards at retail prices, here are some of my favorite online stores to look around.  Some of my favorites: paperculture , minted, paperspring, shutterfly and tinyprints. There are lots of “deals” so be sure to look up coupon codes before buying- it’s worth a quick check!   And not to be Emily/Suzanne Post, BUT — when listing your names on your holiday card, here are some grammar rules:

1. boy and girl- girl name proceeds boy. i.e.: Suzanne and Josh Lucas

2. family with kids- boy name proceeds girl and kids. i.e. Brad, Angelina, Maddux, Zahara, etc etc etc etc etc etc Knox….

** And one more thing- please don’t send a holiday letter like this example – “After we got back from taking all the kids to Scotland, Ted was promoted and I was voted best mother of the year by my entire state…”  – no one can stand it!! Having said ALL of this, I hope you send me a card this year!!
