1. Pre-fall: Get Inspired and Plan

  • Start thinking about the style and theme you want for your Christmas cards. Browse online for inspiration and ideas.
  • Decide whether you want to take new photos for the cards or use existing ones.
  • Plan your card's design, including any personalized messages or family updates.

2. Mid-November: Photo Session

  • If you're taking new photos, schedule a family photo session with a photographer. Make sure to allow time for photo editing and selection.

3. Late November: Photos and Card Designs

  • Once you receive the edited photos, choose the ones you want to use for the cards.
  • Begin designing your Christmas cards. Many online card services offer customizable templates.

4.  Late November: Order Christmas Cards

  • Order your Christmas cards online or through a local printing service. Keep in mind that printing and shipping times may vary.
  • Consider ordering a few extra cards for last-minute additions or for keepsakes.

5. After delivery: Prepare and Address

  • As your cards arrive, review them to ensure they match your design and photo selections.
  • Start addressing envelopes, or consider using a printing service for envelope printing.

6. First of December: Assemble and Send

  • Assemble your Christmas cards, including adding a family update or personalized message.
  • Stamp and seal the envelopes.
  • Aim to have your cards ready for mailing by the first week of December to ensure they arrive on time.

Remember that timelines can vary based on your specific circumstances and location, so it's a good idea to work backward from your desired mailing date. Planning ahead and staying organized will help you breeze through your first Christmas card season with joy and ease. Happy holiday card crafting!
