2011 Holiday Card Trends

2011 Holiday Card Ideas

2011 Holiday Card Trends 

It is not too late to order your 2011 Holiday Cards!  There are so many holiday cards from which to choose , so where to begin?  Well this year, Party Idea Pros finally got our act together enough to plan in advance for the holiday card season.  We contacted some of our favorite merchants so we could actually touch and feel the cards ourselves.  Yes, we admit it — we are ridiculously touchy feely types.  Our trash cans are filled with not so cheap cards printed on flimsy paper with fuzzy photos and illegible print.  On the other hand, our sample books are chock full of  Tiny Prints and Wedding Paper Divas cards and invitations. We love their clear graphics and beautiful eco-friendly papers. We also like that Tiny Prints offers stylish products at three different price points and best of all, throughout December they are offering  discounts and deals on many of their popular products.  This year's Christmas and Hanukkah card trends include rounded corners, back designs, ornament cards, and gray, gold, and neutral colors. And of course, classic design and colors never go out of style.

  • Interesting design elements
  • Quality paper
  • Vendor reliability and outstanding customer service.

So far we have only found two paper companies that fit our moving announcement standards: Minted and Tiny Prints
