What are Personalised Christmas Cards?

They are Christmas cards that you can design yourself. Using our easy-to-use website we can take you through the process from choosing the initial design to personalising the look and feel of the card and then submitting it via your account for our experts to print and send back to you ready to give to your friends and loved ones on Christmas day. So, why is a personalised Christmas card so desirable? Well remember the phrase it is the thought that counts?

Well, what could be nicer than thinking so much about your loved ones and friends that you design and personalise their Christmas card. Doing this shows how much you care. Personalising your Christmas cards also makes sure that nobody will receive the same card which is so often the case when buying generic cards from the shops. Many people now choose to order and buy personalised Christmas cards because they can show a range of emotions and really show a person how you feel. They can make you laugh or cry, make you happy and also evoke a range of emotions and memories and remind people of things (pictures, places and poems) that they may have not thought about in years.

Personalised Christmas cards say so much and show people how much you care. You can design a personalised Christmas card for anyone and everyone and receivers tend to be someone that you care about who you want to do something special for. Personalised Christmas cards are for someone who deserves a card that has had some thought put into it rather than just a generic card with no meaning or words that aren’t your own.

We will show you what fonts you can use and how many words you can put then it is up to you to choose the right words that will show that person what you want to say and how you feel about them.

Something for Everyone

Everyone is different and that is why creating a personalised Christmas card is such a great thing to do. Think about it if you had the choice you wouldn’t give the same card to your partner as you would to you grandparents or your friends and that is the beauty of designing different cards for different people, you no longer have to give the same old generic cards to everyone.

Women may want all hearts and flowers and romantic cards and may want to send a really special message to their husbands and partners. Creating a personalised Christmas card allows them to do this and allows them to take their time and not be rushing to choose the nearest card in the shop whilst juggling shopping and children and the Christmas rush to get everything done in time. Women may want to show how much they love that special person in their life and this can be reflected in the cards they choose by putting personalised messages and poems in the text.

Obviously the type of relationship you have with a person will affect the type of card you want to send. Think about it, how many of you have stood in a card shop struggling to find a card for a family member because the wording inside isn’t quite right. Well this takes all of that stress away as you can put exactly what wording you want to avoiding awkward situations or false feeling from the words in the cards if you don’t really feel that way.

We also have a range of cards for other members of your family including Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Grandparent’s, Nan’s, Gran’s, Nanna’s, Grannie’s, Grandma’s, Grandpa’s and Grandads! So not matter what name you have for your loved ones you can create a card that has the right name on it! You may have godparents or godchildren and want a special card for these people in your life and again we can provide you with a personalised card for these special people in your life.

Create Your Own

Finally, once you have decided on who will be the receiver of your card and what style card you want to send you can follow the options for editing text so you can say exactly the right words. For example, love from all the family, love from the bump, or you can put something that only the two of you will understand for example words that mean something to the both of you. It might be you have a favourite song or poem and personalising your card will allow you to incorporate these words into your personalised Christmas card so it will be a treasured keepsake and a card that will bring a smile to your loved ones when they look back on it in years to come.
