Why I Still Send Holiday Cards by Snail Mail – And You Should Too!

Holiday Cards: It’s that time of year again! Right after Thanksgiving, my kids and I feel the excitement of opening up our mailbox again! Who will we get a card from? How much have their kids grown? Who looks different? What exciting news will we hear?  Wow, one card more original than the other! We appreciate all of them so much that we even put them on display and look at them all the time. At the end of the season, we have a hard time bringing them down!


With so much technology, this is the one tradition that I will not give up! My computer and phone are flooded with emails, texts and more all day long. The old-fashioned mailbox is often filled with junk mail and bills. But in December, it’s our chance to get back to basics and once again feel the excitement of tried and true snail mail as the Holiday Cards start arriving.

The other day I got my first minted.com catalog of the season. My cue to conquer the holiday card! I personally LOVE minted.com because the cards are not only beautiful but they have such an amazing selection. In just a few easy steps, you can create beautiful keepsakes that everyone will cherish!


Minted offers everything from smart and chic to luxe letterhead and the perfect style and card for every budget. You can use one or multiple photos. There are different themes, layouts and an incredibly large variety of printing types from flat to custom. And best of all, Minted now offers FREE custom Minted envelopes and FREE recipient addressing. What a great feature to give you that added little help this holiday season.
