CHOOSING YOUR CUSTOM CHRISTMAS POSTCARD
There are many ways you can save time, money, and effort on your Christmas postcards when you order from Minted. First, start with your front postcard design. This is the most fun part! At Minted, there are so many designs to choose from with different appealing aspects to each one. Choose from photo or non-photo, portrait or landscape, multi-photo cards, various style themes, and so much more. Minted features designs from our 10,000+ community of independent artists, so you are sure to find a Christmas postcard that stands out from the usual holiday greeting fare.
CHRISTMAS PHOTO POSTCARDS: WORTH 1,000 WORDS
The best place to start is by deciding if you want to feature a photo on your postcard. Select Christmas photo postcards if you want to show off a special holiday family photo you have taken, some great vacation pics or yearly photos that track your family’s growth. Non-photo holiday postcard designs are a great option if you want a more design-based look. You could go for the best of both worlds and add a photo to the back of Christmas postcards that feature holiday imagery on the front.
If you've decided you want to showcase more than one photo, you can filter by how many photo slots you need. Select your preferred layout from 0 (for non-photo), to 1, 2, 3, or up to 4+ picture slots, and you’ll quickly see your options filtered to exactly what you want and need for your Christmas postcard. Thankfully, if you can’t decide on which family photo to feature on your card, you can choose to include a collection!
HOLIDAY POSTCARD THEMES & STYLES
Quickly look through the different design categories and themes using the filters listed at the top of this shopping page. Are you feeling a minimalist or modern look? Do you love to see your family photo surrounded by holiday botanicals and greens? A classic design is always in style for the season as well. Filter through the different options to easily and quickly get a sense of what your holiday postcard style is. This will make narrowing down your options a lot easier.
One last tip is to also filter for whether you want a landscape or portrait design. This may not be as important if you want a Christmas photo postcards that features a collage of photos. However, if you are putting one main photo on the front of your postcard, it's most likely important that the layout suits the photo’s orientation. With so many design options, you won’t have to compromise any aspect of your postcard design to accommodate your best family photo.
PERSONALIZED CHRISTMAS POSTCARDS: GREETINGS, COLORS & MORE
Next, customize your postcard with any greeting you are comfortable sharing with your loved ones.

You can also get creative and create your own holiday postcard greeting! Take a look at some common holiday sayings to draw inspiration and spark your imagination.
As you continue working on your personalized Christmas postcard design, note all the colors and foil colors you can choose from. Accenting your holiday card with gold, silver, rose gold, green, or red foil creates a distinguished look that literally shines compared to others. Minted has put together multiple color options, but if your heart is set on a different palette for your holiday postcards, simply leave comments in the special requests box and a design associate will work to make your design exactly how you want it.
For the back of your Christmas postcard, each design has two options. On the left-hand side, your first option is text only. This is a perfect opportunity to update your loved ones on your family’s year. You’ll also be able to customize the text with the perfect color to match the front design. Select a traditional or fun font that you think brings to life your copy, then adjust the size so it properly fits the available space. The second option for your backer includes just a few lines of copy and space for one photo. This is an excellent choice if you have one more photo you want to add or if you selected a non-photo design for the front of your holiday postcard.
Rest assured that our design associates will review your personalized Christmas postcards so that they look perfect before sending you a final proof to approve.
