    I haven’t sent out Christmas cards in the past 2 years because of the cost of postage. When I did, I created home-made cards and added a family photo. This year, I believe I’ll make a digital card from scratch and drop in a family photo and just email it.

    Most years we send out cards. I usually mean to do a photo card and then run out of time and just send purchased non-photo cards, but we have printed photos and put them on blank cards and printed photo cards ourselves at home. Depends on the year. This year I plan to do good ones, and winning this would sure help!

    I usually buy the premade photocards from Costco since it is so inexpensive, but I was thinking about going digital this year as well. Nowadays you can send cute slideshows and almost everyone I know has email, but these templates on your site are very tempting!

    Yes I do send out personal holiday cards. I try and get them out before Hanukkah starts, but sometimes I end up sending New Years cards instead. I send Photo Cards: Using a Photoshop template from a graphic design company or photographer’s resource site that I can change. I love using templates that let me change the background and add elements to the card.

    Definitely send out cards. I think it’s a great way to keep connected that’s a little more personal and I love looking at photos when people send photo cards. I sometimes use a template and sometimes design my own. It depends on my mood and the amount of time I have. Regardless, I always seem to be a little later than I want in sending them out. 🙂

    We’re expats, so send out about 80 cards every year. We used to do the Shutterfly thing but this year (as I started my own photography business) we used a card from Jamie Schultz and I’m loving the results. I’ll never go back to store-bought cards. We order the cards from a printing company.

    Send a card every year…just depends on how “stressed” I am as to whether I design it or buy it!

    I DO send out holiday cards! I send a Photo Card using a Photoshop template from a graphic design company or photographer’s resource site. Then I print it using WHCC.

    Depending on how the spirit moves me, I have designed our card, printed a photo and glued it to a card, or used a template.
