Have you ever designed your own Christmas cards online?  I hadn’t until recently when I was given the chance to at Mixbook.com.  I was surprised with the many choices available for holiday photo cards.  There were folded cards of many sizes, flat cards of many sizes, and many designs.

However, I was on a mission to design a 5×7 flat card with customizations that was printed on their budget coated card stock.  The fact these were going to be printed on budget coated card stock had me a bit worried.  I was worried the card would look cheap, feel cheap and the colors would be dull. Nevertheless, I continued on my merry way choosing my card. There were so many to chose from that I really had to take a good look at them all before I ended up choosing this card:

I was then taken to their designer/editor software where I customized my card.  I have to say I had a lot of fun playing around while customizing my card.  Their designer/editor is very easy to use.  There are many options ranging from customizing your picture, the font, the opacity of the clipart and you see all those snowflakes – I was able to move them around!  I was able to re-size them, lighten or darken them, and delete or add more of the same, easily!  In fact, there are many different clipart images you can add to your card of choice!  In addition, you can customize the back of the card. Here’s what the front of my card looked like finished:
Once finished, I placed my order and much to my amazement, the cards arrived at my door within a couple of days.  I couldn’t wait to tear into the package to see how they came out.  My worries of them not being of quality – was a waste of energy.  I was very impressed with the thickness of the card, the vibrancy of the inks and they were far from feeling or looking cheap! Accompanying the cards were premium quality envelopes.  We’re not talking thin, cheap envelopes but rather envelopes that had a substance to the paper.  I would absolutely recommend you checking out their selection of holiday photo cards – I can’t imagine you’d be disappointed.
