Print Your Own Holiday Cards

Close your eyes if you are expecting a holiday card from me; I don't mean to ruin the surprise! (As a side note, you should e-mail me if you think we are kindred spirits and we should start exchanging holiday cards. Anna and I started doing that and became friends in real life after we took a road trip to Oklahoma to meet her family!). 

I wanted to share a breakdown of how we did our cards this year and how much it cost:

Total cost per card = $0.70

I did a quick search on and it looks like something comparable would have cost about $1.67 per card. Phew! I'm glad our cost ended up cheaper (since I didn't do the calculations in advance...)

Let me know if you have any questions!

Thank you for this! I've been struggling with justifying the cost of sending out cards this year ($1.70 / piece + postage!), but really love that connection point -- especially since we had such a big year. Now it feels manageable!

Recommendation for holiday cards: PearTree! We always try to get ours on sale at 40% off so, the cards end up being $0.70-0.80 + postage. We have been able to get trifold ones at this price point, with plenty of photos and room for text...which you know is important for our cards!

Glad I could be helpful, Olivia!

Allison, great recommendation! Your cards are always amazing and they look way more expensive/professional than $0.70-$0.80. Hopefully we'll get to visit you in Richmond some day!

Yes, I'm grateful for your holiday card as a jump start to our closer-to-real-life friendship! We hope to make our way down to Austin someday soon!
