How to Save Money on your Christmas Cards
Gifts alone can cost a family hundreds to thousands a year. So, it is important to cut costs wherever possible… even with your christmas cards. These days, everyone loves sending photo cards. However, they can end up costing you quite a bit of money.
Here are a few ways to save a little cash this year when sending your cards out:
– Send an e-card
Not only can you save some money on you Christmas cards, but you could save all of that money by sending a free e-card. There are plenty of online companies that will allow you to send a cute, animated greeting right to your loved ones’ inboxes.
You could even take the time to personalize each one with a special message. This will make the card feel more intimate than a generic photo.
– Use postcards
People often overlook the cost of stamps when sending their Christmas cards. You could easily spend $50-$100 on this alone! Did you know that post card stamps are cheaper?
This year, consider printing your photo on a post card or using a generic christmas post card. This will not only save you quite a bit on stamps, but will also add a unique spin to your Christmas Cards by Charity Greeting Cards sending.
– Shop around
If you do want to order photo cards, do not simply use the first shop or site you visit. Prices can range quite a bit from business to business. You can even check the internet for coupons first to potentially save a bit.
We have even found that if you order your cards early, you may save some money from promotions or deals. Very few shops or sites will run a deal close to Christmas, so be prepared to take advantage of a sale early.
– Go old school
Who said Christmas cards have to be a personalized photo? The idea of sending out a photo card is relatively new… and often expensive. You can save money by going old school and sending a traditional card.
In case you have forgotten, these cards come in bulk packages to make them even less expensive. You also can write personalized messages in each one – making a card that is even more special.
