On your mark,
The Christmas countdown is on!
At the time that I am starting this post there are 58 days 2 hours and 56 minutes until Christmas....But who's counting?
That means if you are going to get Christmas cards made, addressed, and actually mailed so that friends and family get them PRIOR to Christmas day then it's time to start planning.
I'm a bit of a Christmas card freak and not only do (make, address, and mail) our cards but my parents' cards as well and keep extensive mailing label databases for each. This year I am already planning on using Shutterfly for our cards. We always send out photo cards because let's be honest that Christmas cards are a competition to see who has the cutest kids. A competition which we dominate with our two beautiful girls of course!
We have used Shutterfly 2 or 3 times for our Christmas cards, but I'm going to admit that we did not use Shutterfly last year. I thought I had found a good deal on photo cards on another site and, sure, they were cheap....but price ended up not being the only way in which they were cheap. They looked ok. Nothing spectacular. They looked like I had printed them out using my home printer. The quality was as poor as the price was cheap. I was disappointed but it was too late to get new cards made.
